It’s our rules, we set them inside.
So, it doesn’t matter if we slip up or break them, we decide. We don’t have to follow them and we can change them. In fact, rules are needed at all.
Yet, our mind uses these ‘rules’ to imprison ourselves.
Freedom comes from just letting things unfold as they are, accepting that and then deciding what to do, if anything, now, not in the non-existent future, but now as in our real life.
