Identify more with the awareness within which the thoughts take place than the thoughts themselves
The awareness within which bodily sensation takes place rather than the bodily sensation itself.
If you think of hunger, sexual desire - these are sets of feelings and stimulation that take place within the body, but the body takes place within the awareness.
If our connection to the awareness becomes stronger than our connection to those stimulations, not that we ever neglect of negate them because they are vital information of course, we become more able to direct the outcomes of our behavior of our wants.
Just because we want something doesn't mean we have to do it.
Fulfillment of wants is not freedom. Fulfillment of wants, is a kind of tyranny.
Especially since we don't often know how the wants we experience got to be inside of us in the first place.
