We spend the majority of our lives in our head, crafting our dramas, articulating rebuttals. We are not happy there, yet refuse to leave. Meanwhile nature is rustling. The minute you let go and pay attention, a supreme peace can be upon you.
Your brain’s "default mode network" can be seen as your "ego," interpreting (mediating) your inner and outer worlds. Too much ego can lead to rumination, depression, OCD, and addiction. One way to quiet ego: get a physical hobby that recognizes mastery. Move out of your head into reality. The newest shortcut: shrooms.
