Overthinking is our memories running the show to keep us going in circles around everything we already know, hoping we’ll find new answers or resolution to a perceived problem. We are the thinkers, with the capacity to access our memory when it’s useful, but, most importantly, with the capacity to turn our back on circular thinking and allow space for wisdom, insights, fresh ideas to come into a quiet mind. Our wisdom is always there, like the pilot light on a stove. It isn’t always visible, but as soon as the way is opened, it comes to light. There would be much less stress and anxiety if people would trust their wisdom when they weren’t sure or didn’t know, and use their intellect wisely.
