Every one of us thinks in our mind that we are always right.
Yet all of us can not be right all the time, because, in my mind, my ego tells me that you are wrong at the same time someone else believes they are right and therefore I must be wrong.
Why have humans not realised that we can not be right all the time and others always wrong? It’s not possible.
Simple, our ego will not allow us to be wrong. Even if we reluctantly accept that we are wrong and say so out loud, deep down the mind will work its magic to convince itself that it was still right, there were factors that made us temporarily make an error but we were still right.
The fact is, to our true essence and self, right or wrong does not matter. Yet we waste so much energy and focus on being right, all the time.
Perhaps we can just choose to neither agree nor disagree and just acknowledge the other person but not pass a judgement. Imagine how quickly conflict would go away.
Accepting what is sounds easy, but we are conditioned to want a different outcome to anything we do not like.
Our ego does not want to see or hear anything that doesn’t fit the story or if it feels like we are to blame.
The culture of blaming comes from the individual and collective egos and there wish not to be at fault.
If we can remove our ego from the situation, not look for blame, if we can silence our mind and its negative thoughts, then we can find accepting what has happened, and realising that what is, is always what is. It has already happened and wanting a different moment is, of course, completely futile.
Once we can get to the stage of accepting that everything that has occurred, has occurred, and we can not alter it, then we can focus on now and moving on, letting go and looking at how to deal with the reality of now.
Resisting creates fear that then leads to other emotions, pain and suffering. Inner peace is never achievable all the time we deny this present moment.
Letting go brings peace within and then we react from our true essence to things, from our soul, rather than from the mind, its ego and fears. We avoid becoming our emotions and reactions.
Everything is, as it is always, move on and enjoy now with peace within.
