Stay present and stay free

Whatever comes our way there is always a solution and when it is happening right now, the only time anything can happen, we always know what to do. We always deal with it right now or of course, we choose not to deal with it, but it’s happening now, so no thought, no fear, no worry, no what if…it’s happening.

The challenge in life is always created from a mental projection of the future, a time that does not exist, a time that nothing can happen, as it is not now and when we reach that point, it will still be now.

The projections into the future create psychological fear as it is something that can never be dealt with now. We suffer mental and then as a consequence, physically too. This then creates a compound effect and further suffering and anxiety come.

The only way to avoid this is to realise everything always happens now, and there is nothing that can happen that we can not cope with or deal or choose to do nothing about. As it is happening in this very instance there is no capacity or time to think about it. No thought means no suffering.

Stay present, stay free from suffering within.

Awareness

Awareness is a huge step towards growth and change.

If we are aware of our thoughts, emotions, reactions, feelings, then we are awake and conscious. It means we have realised that we are not any them, that we are the witness of those things.

The true being that we are can only flourish once we realise that we are not those things.

Being aware of our thought, feelings, reactions, and the resulting emotions enables us to be able to change them, to accept them, to stop associating our true self with them.

Inner peace comes when we are aware as it means we are conscious and have transcended the mind.
