As I’ve said before, people have a view of themselves made of of their thinking. They think people look at them and see their thoughts, but other people don’t see you either. They too will make various judgments which act as a thought-lens and focuses our attention on this or that. The result is that we see a completely different person than you do.
So what do people see when they look at you? In my experience it’s something a lot nicer than most people would ever guess. Here’s what some people saw:
Be kind to yourself. Not because it’s easy–because it works. Treat yourself well this weekend. Continue to be kind to yourself throughout the month and year and you will see results–the very best kind of results. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them. When he realized people were confused by their own over-thinking, Scott began teaching others to understand reality. He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
