Our reactions to the external world

How do we choose to react inside to the external world?

Well, we can accept and surrender to what is. Build no resistance or negativity to the current situation. That is an inner acceptance that does not necessarily mean we agree or like the situation we just choose not to fight it internally. We do not have to actualise this externally through actions or words. We just choose to stay calm inside.

Another option is to remove ourselves from the situation. To flee.

There is one more choice, the one that most of us seem to opt for most of the time, continue suffering from our reactions to situations. By resisting what we cannot control and is already.

We can not control the external world outside of us, therefore, when we resist what is, and put up a fight in terms of how the mind and body reacts, then that activates pain and suffering within. It is all negative energy from our thoughts, reactions and emotions.

Surrendering to what is allows us to be free of that resistant mindset and enables us to act out of intelligence and from a position of liberation and peace.

Inner peace comes from choosing to no longer suffer and remove any barriers and resistance to the external world. It is a choice we can all make and we can make it now.

A problem-free life

What if there are no problems?

As you read this, now, this very moment, do you have a problem?

The answer will be no, a situation could arise and you will deal with it. Problems only occur when we label something as such and then the mind takes over. Also, when we are in our minds, the mind will project forward into the future and will imagine problems.

We can only deal with situations as and when they occur in the present moment, future problems are mind constructs and therefore cannot be dealt with as they are not real.

Problems give rise to psychological fears and they are completely different to present real physical dangers that we deal with by flight, freeze or fight.

There are no problems, just situations we choose to label as such and future mind projections of imaginary problems.

A problem-free life is a choice, one that any of us can make at any moment, it is that easy, stay focused on our life now and do not create labels for future events or current situations.
