If we fall into the habit of allowing ‘news’ whether good or bad to affect our mood up or down, then external factors, that are always beyond our control, start to rule our mood. We lose control and simply become like a weather vane blowing in the wind.
If we concentrate on our energy within, our very soul and essence, and accept always things as they are ‘good’ or ‘bad’, which are just subjective labels of our mind and conditioning, then we will find life unfolds more peacefully.
We can not always be happy but we can be at peace with that feeling without the need to label and judge everything all the time.
Everything will depend on which end of the telescope you’re looking down…it’s all just a view. But views take on a power of their own once we attach to them.
Perspective is uniquely ours and thus most things are just that, according to our mind’s perspective or en masse from the collective mind’s perspective.
If we choose to just observe without evaluation, free from our mind’s take on it, then we can simply enjoy the observation and see what is, rather than what our mind is telling us is.
Opinions, views, and even wars come from one person’s view being adopted by the collective mind. We attach to things that relate to our mind’s story and then they become part of our own ego and must be defended, literally at all costs.
The collective mind is now freely available 24/7 via our smartphone…we are all connected to that matrix. So the collective mind is even more consuming and powerful. We become it.
If we are brave enough, then we can simply switch off that collective mind and see what changes in our life.
Worth a try if you find the collective affecting you in any way.
