Why do I feel like this?

We are always looking for a reason as to why we feel a certain way. Why we are angry, sad, emotional, frustrated or whatever.

The thing is, it doesn’t matter what the reason is and when we let whatever we are feeling just be, accepting that is what is and how we are feeling in this moment, then there is no resistance, no negativity and it will soon pass or not, again it doesn’t matter. Peace comes from accepting everything that is and allowing it space to be, not fighting it within.

When we start to analyse, that is, in fact, the mind that is playing up, wanting an answer, usually so we can blame another person or something that happened as the cause of our internal state. Our internal state is always our responsibility.

Accepting how we feel now and letting it be is the best way to let go and move on and to stop suffering within. It never matters why.

It’s insane

We have huge potential to do amazing things and yet we waste that potential trapping ourselves in our mind, where we simply re-live the past or act out the future, mapped against a self-image that the mind has created and will protect at all costs from being ‘destroyed’.

If we stop an analyse what our mind is doing sub-consciously on a minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, in fact, a lifetime basis, we’d realise the insanity of it all.

We are all insane to inflict emotional pain, and the resulting physical pain, upon ourselves almost continuously throughout our lives. If we are conscious, no one would do it to themselves. Why would we inflict any pain emotional or physical on ourselves?

It’s madness.

What if we just did in the now, be in the now, and stopped the analysis? What if we just consciously lived our lives moment by moment?

What could we achieve? How much better would we feel? Could we live free, without problems that we continually imagine in our minds?

Imagine a world free from this insanity.
