I’ve got a complaint

The thing about complaining is that there is no resolution, only a thing to fight with. Fighting something, which is essentially resisting what is, has no benefit ever. what has already happened, has already happened and will not change ever, the past is gone. Even if it was only a second ago. Inner peace comes from accepting inside what has occurred, a thing that we cannot change.

What complaining allows is the mind to feed its ego and the pain body, which constantly needs a drama to survive. It allows a sense of importance, or a sense of being a victim or both to manifest, something to be indigent about, to centre things on ‘me’. ‘Me’ is what the ego loves.

Complaining is habitual and once your mind gets you hooked it spirals downwards until only a continual state of complaining will manifest.

When we accept without resistance, then it is a minor thing of a trivial nature that occurs, that has no impact on our state of wellbeing. When the mind complains, it is a major incident, that only leads to more major incidents and suffering.

Being in the moment ends the need to complain and removes the suffering it causes us and those that have to endure listening to it. It also leads to peace within.

Thought is overrated

When we just stay focused and do, then there is no time to think.

Of course, there are many ways to do something, many options to consider and so on, and that is exactly it, the mind is like a giant magnet that will drag you along from a simple thought to complete sabotage and meltdown, often within a minute or two.

If we use our mind as a creative tool, dipping in and out of it to consider the creative elements and to solve challenges around a task and then return to the moment, then the mind is a powerful tool to help us complete whatever we are doing.

However, habitually the mind is controlling us with its powerful thoughts, judgements and opinions it has created about us, especially when it comes to doing something. It sees doing as a risk.

The moment we start to consider the pros/cons of action that is when it triggers the sabotage of starting anything.

The mind is a tool for us to use, not us and not something to dominate all that we do.

Thought is overrated, it kills action and stops us from being who we truly are. Conversely, focus and consciousness are where we are able to be at our best and to be who we really are and not inhibited by our egos.
