so you have a thought........it`s a terrible thought. one you have had before and when you did it made you feel terrible for hours. now you are having it again. it is a feeling like no other. it overwhelms you and controls you and the feeling then becomes you. you become that feeling.
in the past the feeling persisted and had it`s way with you, but do you remember the moment it went away?
the moment it went away was the precise moment that another thought took it`s place and began to have it`s way with you.....and so on.
a pattern interrupt is preciely that..........an interruption of the pattern of feeling that you are having that you recognise as your conscious mood. this works exactly the same way for a good feeling as for a bad one. you are having a nice daydream about something pleasant and suddenly, bang! you nearly run over a cyclist in your car..............you can`t quite get back to that same pleasant mood now though. this works with the shit feelings too.
it just takes a bit of practice.
realise you are having a memory that triggers a bad mood, or realise that you are in one. now as you recognise the feelings in yourself and track back to the essense of where it all started and touch on the main points, hit them with a hammer........in your mind, or literally get a hammer out and bang on a piece of wood or a nail and drive the negative thoughts down flat and yell "shut the fuck up" to yourself until it seems amusing..............
when you begin to smile or laugh is when the pattern is successfully interrupted and a new neurochemical pathway is established in your body...........you have made a new drug to trip on.
when you realise that you are in control of the drug factory and you can make any drug you want to do any task you want, then the only question is, what next?
