What if you don’t continue?
What if you quit?
What if you leave?
What if you don’t say it?
What if? What if? What if?
We fear to do what we feel because we fear the consequences. Yet the consequences of our actions only happen after we have done them and therefore what we fear is the psychological fear that is just a creation of our mind and its projection into the fantasy that is the future.
Never fear what if, just do what you feel always and in the moment. When consequences unfold, we can deal with them, in that moment.
We can sit on the fence or we can take the plunge…it’s an ongoing dilemma we face on our journey.
Either is a choice, there’s not a right or wrong about whichever we choose. Doing or not is the same.
However, like all things, our choices have consequences always, so if we choose not to take the plunge then that will have a consequence.
Sitting on the fence seems comfortable and less risky…safe.
Safe leads to suffering though.
Taking the plunge seems risky, but it brings experience and after all, life is about taking mental concepts and realising them through actually creating a real-life experience.
So comfort seems good short-term, but longer-term it is only suffering from not creating the experiences we want. Experiences mentally seem daunting but they lead to joy and other experiences…it’s a chain reaction that sitting on the fence never creates.
