When I'm trying to decide what decision to make, I tend to over think and over complicate things. I do this to the point where both decisions seem equally perfect or equally horrible.
I think that when our brains are trying to make decisions they're like whisks whipping cream. If you over whip cream it separates and becomes unusable and disgusting. If we over think things our brains can become messy places. The things we hoped to achieve no longer can be, because we’re so mixed up. But unlike whipped cream we can go back. Back to the place where there’s more black and white than grey.
“LSD stands out for learning to slow down.” - Santosh Kalwar
If we slow down just enough, we’ll be able to notice the small details. These details can end up being the ones that tip us over to one side over the other.
To get yourself to slow down and/or “unthink” things you have to want to. We can’t always simply follow our hearts or else we may end up in limbo. I often times lose my heart-desire to make a decision, but I still have a conscious-desire. I don’t necessarily want to do something, but I want to want to do something.
Doing something as small as slowing down and having a thought can be better than rushing through life checking off things as quickly as possible.
