When we allow our mind to take control, we truly believe that we are our thoughts, we are the self-created story or stories of our ego. We play all kinds of roles, acting out different personas for different situations.
When we project into the future, which is where the mind is at for a great deal of its time, we feel the psychological fear that always is the future, because it is not real, we can not deal with it so the fear becomes all-consuming.
If we choose to allow this to continue, it alters everything we do, in fact, mainly it stops us doing the things that our soul really wants us to do.
A moment of simple pause, a chance to separate from our thought, and realise that the real you and I are beyond thought, we are the observer of the thoughts, and if we stay at that level of consciousness, we enjoy now this moment and do not enter into the futility of predicting the future. Without fear, we are then more able to do the things we really want to do.
When we see others and accept them as they are, we then step away from the lens of judgement that is our mind and its ego. Drama keeps the mind fed and that leads us to judge and gossip with others, it feeds our mind but creates fear, division, hate, anger and is toxic to us all.
If we want to see a different world and enjoy peace within and outside, then we can only achieve that by recognising we are all the one life and we are all beautiful loving souls beyond our minds and our egos.
If we are compassionate, we realise that like ourselves, everyone suffers from their mind to one extent or another. We do not know how much a person is suffering within, we can feel it sometimes and when we are away from our mind, we can feel it completely as we are conscious.
All that we could choose to extend to others is love, instead of our mind and its judgement.
It takes a simple step from our own mind and thoughts, and being conscious, now in this moment and choosing not to fight another’s mind, choosing to see their soul, not their ego. Acceptance will always bring peace and resistance always suffering.
