This is the world’s greatest blog post

It could be…or it might not be.

It is all a personal opinion. It will depend on your view.

Opinions are formed by our ego and they are temporary mental forms, that we attach to, and then they have to be defended at all costs, in many cases, quite literally by some crazy ego-maniacs.

This is the challenge with attachment, it becomes personal. We label everything as ‘my ‘x”. For example, once ‘the car’ becomes ‘my car’, rather than just ‘the car’ then it is an extension of ourselves and so if someone scratches it, it is felt like we’ve been scratched.

The same is true with opinions, once we attach to them and the ego is involved, then it is seen by the mind as a matter of life and death. The ego is fragile and to be wrong is a threat to its very existence.

It really does not matter whether or not this is the world’s greatest blog post or not, it does not matter if you like it or not. What matters to me is that I enjoy the doing, I enjoy writing this, in this moment and it brings me joy. If it brings something to others, well that is an added piece of joy for me.

Anything else is for other people’s minds and views and my view is simply that, a view that matters not.

This is a path that will lead to peace and no pressure or burden of expectation

The best time to be alive

Is now.

Our life is now, this moment.

It is the only time that matters.

The past has gone and the future we want is built by what we do now.

Sure things can be better, however, if we appreciate what we have right now this moment and forget what we do not have, then we live in the moment and value life more and savour the experience of our lives.

Don’t look for better times, we already have the best.
