If we sit

‘Old Father Thames’ by Philip Dodson

If we sit at night and dread the coming day, then we are projecting into the future creating psychological fear.

If we sit in the day and regret what happened the day before, then we are stuck in the past, a thing that cannot be changed and no longer exists.

These states of unconscious mind activity seem normal, yet in the conscious moment that is now, we realise that our mind is where the insanity is. We are dwelling on a past that no longer exists or projecting into an unreal future…crazy. Then basing our beliefs upon such insanity. Even madder.

If we sit in this moment and experience just this moment then we can let go of the insanity and be at peace. We can base our beliefs on the real-life moment and allow ourselves to be truly ourselves free from the madness our mind creates.

  1. Soooooooo true. This is so succinctly and well said. It has taken me decades more than I like to admit to find teachings that are helping me see the absolute reality of what you are writing about here. Thank you. It is always good to have many voices speaking truth into one’s life. Thank you for being one of them here. Shalom, Jane
