When your mind does not need to be right.
When you no longer need to compare yourself with others.
When you no longer need to compete – not even in your own head
When your mind can be creative, but without needing anyone to know
When you can live in contentment with whatever the moment offers.
When you do not need to analyze or judge things in or out, positive or negative
When your mind does not need to be in charge, but can serve the moment with gracious and affirming information
When your mind follows the intelligent lead of your heart
When your mind is curios and interested, not suspicious and interrogating
When your mind do not need to humiliate, critique, or defeat those who have hurt you – not even in your mind
When the mind does not need the future to be better than today
When your mind does not divide and always condemn one side or group
When your mind can find truth on both sides
When your mind can wait, listen, and learn
When you can admit it was wrong and change
When you can actually love with your mind
When your mind can accept yourself as you are
When your mind can find God in all things
(Richard Rohr, The Naked Now, 2009)
