The mind is full of thoughts, ideas, judgements, beliefs based on the lens the mind filters the real world through and the story it has created for us to live by. So what we think is the truth, is really just that, a thought in the mind, a mental form that the mind has created that comes and goes like all forms.
Absolute truth lies beyond the mind. Search deep within you when you are conscious, when you are still, when the mind is quiet. Like wisdom, love, peace, joy, truth comes from within our true being, from our soul and spirit. There lies the absolute truth.
The past is not the guide to what will happen now.
The past is exactly that and it no longer exists, apart from a memory in our minds.
As we are not our minds or the story, then what happened before is no longer relevant, unless we choose it to be.
We play the same repeating mind patterns over and over, if you identify with your mind, then the resulting action will be what the mind is telling you about your past. We become the thoughts.
If we disassociate with our thoughts, as they are simply mental forms that come and go, about 60,000 per day, then the doing now is all that is relevant. However, if we take each thought seriously, we’d be exhausted and often are, then we get the same outcome as before – it repeats.
If we stay focused on now and what we are doing now the past has no bearing and the flow from our soul and spirit comes into being and what happens is not the past. The only guide is the conscious moment, that is always the only thing that matters, and the only thing that is real. The rest is just in our minds.
