Think of those hours and days where our mind involuntarily keeps going round in a circle.
The mind keeps thinking of that obsessive thought- that one sentence, that frozen image- which is actually past and therefore non-existent in reality. We keep getting pulled back by the same fear, the same hurt, the same stress.
‘The same old, stale input leads to the same non-fresh output.’
This is a negative state of being, causing a disequilibrium within ourselves, where we feel lethargic and non-cheerful for long stretches.
De-queuing is a technique of transforming this unpleasant (recurring) input going to our mind. It says ‘transform the old input’ since old input can just produce the old output which is non-cheerful.
‘Pump fresh inputs and see yourself feeling elated and happy.’
Pumping fresh input is easy-just close your eyes for 20 seconds and see your own face overlaid with a smile.
