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.

Fixing and ego

We all have a unique path and journey, each one of us. Just because we had a similar experiences that doesn’t mean that our friend, partner, child, parent or stranger had exactly the same. Additionally it may have occurred at a different part of our growth in life, we are different so how we reacted would have been different too, so the whole experience would have changed.

Essentially, it is better to listen, understand and empathise with our friend, partner, child, parent or stranger, rather than make about ourselves and our story, which they often may not want to hear or care about.

Fixing and telling others is not understanding, it is ego. If they seek our view or advice, that is different, but simply using the time in which the other is speaking to prepare our answer about our story is simply all about us.
