I am not well.
Is it true?
It feels true now.
No, it’s an interpretation.
How do I react when I take that thought as true?
I don’t feel well. I feel sick.
I look for signs of not being well.
I act as if I am not well.
I get cautious about any signs that I am not well.
I wonder if I can do things I normally would do.
I find an identity as not well.
What am I afraid would happen if I didn’t have that belief?
I am afraid I wouldn’t take care of myself.
I would do too much.
How would I be without the thought?
Attending to what’s here, free from the labels of well or not well.
I am not not well.
Hm. I see that well and not well are labels, an overlay of thoughts.
I am well.
Hm. This body is alive and can do many things. It’s well in that sense.
I breathe, eat, walk.
My thinking is not well.
When I believe the thought “I am not well” my thoughts become in service of that belief.
Their job is to make it appear true.
