Worth another airing

I wrote the post below about 2 years ago or so, and it seems even more applicable today, where it seems that the human race is so unconscious in thought and so plugged into the collective mind that we are no longer curious at all. We blindly accept anything and everything without question.

“Fish Don’t Know They’re In Water”

I was listening to a James Altucher podcast and his guest used a great quote ‘fish don’t know they’re in water’. They are surrounded by it and therefore they don’t see it.

The monoculture that has seemingly and happily been adopted by the human race en masse in the global village that our world has become, has led most to not see the ‘water’ they are in.

This is the danger of not being curious, not questioning, accepting and complying with the one voice, the one picture, you become blind to the real world.

This creates a distorted society where some humans matter and some don’t.

Jump out the water, maybe you’re not a fish.

Doing the things we really want to do

When we allow our mind to take control, we truly believe that we are our thoughts, we are the self-created story or stories of our ego. We play all kinds of roles, acting out different personas for different situations.

When we project into the future, which is where the mind is at for a great deal of its time, we feel the psychological fear that always is the future, because it is not real, we can not deal with it so the fear becomes all-consuming.

If we choose to allow this to continue, it alters everything we do, in fact, mainly it stops us doing the things that our soul really wants us to do.

A moment of simple pause, a chance to separate from our thought, and realise that the real you and I are beyond thought, we are the observer of the thoughts, and if we stay at that level of consciousness, we enjoy now this moment and do not enter into the futility of predicting the future. Without fear, we are then more able to do the things we really want to do.
