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

Happy blogging

Staring at the blank screen used to make me anxious…that’s what I have been doing for the last 10 minutes, well I did it for a few minutes and then grabbed my crossword book and finished a crossword that had been there for a week incomplete.

However, after 1,910 continuous blogs, so 5 1/4 years of not missing a day, I no longer fear it. Of course, there is my ego…otherwise I wouldn’t have mentioned how many days I’ve written in a row!!! The ego says ‘have to keep going’. But I know that if I wait a while, then there is always something to say, even if it is just a few words or many. Often the fewer words say a great deal more. I no longer feel the pressure, and if I did miss a day, who cares. It really doesn’t matter.

I used to write a daily journal too on 750words.com but I stopped that daily ritual after 4+ year of continuous daily entries, because firstly I realised it was my ego that was keeping me going, so I could brag to others just how dedicated I was. Secondly, it became an extension of the turmoil of my mind, so actually, it was serving no purpose at all.

Now, I’m not staring at a blank screen because I’ve written this post.

Happy blogging.
