Focus On The Understanding.

Rather than the Thought.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own.

When you focus on the Understanding, everything shifts. Because you understand.

So you no longer need to think about it. Because your mind is settled. Because you understand.

When you understand how you are the only you, you shift from the Thought to the Understanding too.

Because you understand how you are the only one who can do what only you can do. Be you.

So you can focus on the Understanding of Who You Are. Rather than the Thought that makes you think you need to be more than you.


Our minds are capable of more than just thinking.

Our minds can also receive. Receive the Understanding too. To understand what to do when our minds get stuck in a thought. When your mind gets stuck in a thought too.

Which is why your mind can also empty. Empty to receive. Receive your own understanding. The Understanding of You.

And begin from this Understanding too.

So you can stop fighting against who you already are. So you stop fighting against you.

And you can understand how you are the only you. You can understand this for you too.

So it is simply a learned habit that makes you think you need to keep thinking about you. Rather than live in the Understanding of who you already are. Who you have always been too.

And you are enough. You have always been enough. Simply being you.

Which means you can also choose to learn a new daily practice. Of focusing your mind on this Understanding too.

You can learn a new daily practice of shifting to the Understanding every time a Thought arrives about you.

Because your mind can also do this. Because your mind is capable of receiving your own understanding too.

Focus on the Understanding. The Understanding of You. Because the Understanding has always been here for you too.

To return you to who you are. To return you to you.
