The Friday Dose is a collection of cool, interesting and surprising things that are chosen for their potential to distract you away from any painful thought loops that may currently be disrupting your sense of perspective. Enjoy.
In today’s Dose we’ll have the usual collection of chaotic captivating thought-changing material. If you’re caught in a painful thought loop then spend a little time with this narrative active in your consciousness: it’s the story of two best friends and it will lead you to feel good. Then after you feel good and your consciousness is elevated again, don’t forget that you get to choose which direction your thinking goes from there. Things can feel compelling but all thoughts are equal. None weigh more than others.

So take this in and then choose what to think about next:

I highly recommend it. Enjoy:

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.
