The labelling machine.

The road to ruin and the road to success are the same ones. We can not have good without bad, it’s how life will play out. Ups and downs.

The thing is, it is all played out inside us, so we choose what is ‘good’ and what is ‘bad’. We can choose, of course, that nothing is either ‘good’ or ‘bad’…it just ‘is’. So ruin is subjective, the same as success. Whatever occurs on our journey there is a purpose to it. There are no good or bad people and no good or bad situations…just teachers and teaching. It is all a choice of how we want to see the world.

Once we label something ‘bad’ it is and once we label something ‘good’ it is. The mind is a giant labelling machine and it subconsciously labels everything according to our story and our conditioning. We then view the exterior world through that lens and we create our interior mood too. This affects how we react. If we accept what is, then even in bad situations, we can react from a place of peace. We may not be happy about ruin, but accepting it will enable us to react from a positive position not one of misery.

The path will be the path and whatever happens along the path, we can remove suffering by choosing not to label and always accepting what is.

Switch off the labelling machine, accept, and we can live a peaceful life no matter what.

Who says we have to fit in?

Curiosity didn’t ‘kill the cat’, blind compliance will.

Ask why? If something doesn’t instinctively feel right, listen to your soul, trust that and explore. If the crowd are going one way, you could see what is in the opposite direction, it’s ok to think differently.

Think about more than one narrative, as there is more than one viewpoint without it being a conspiracy.

The collective mind and ego are capable of doing anything to preserve itself as are individuals. Action is unconscious and dominated by the mind and not flowing from the soul.

Fear is great but it is not real, it is a psychological fear of the future that enables the collective mind to control.

There is a motive behind all action, doesn’t mean it’s bad or good, it’s all subjective.

Just question, it may not change anything, but no harm in having a different view, after all, who says we have to fit in? It is all of the mind and we can, of course, choose to step away and accept what is and that allows us to question from a position of peace and see things without the corruption of a lens and judgement. The soul does not have an agenda other than love.
