If we sit at night and dread the coming day, then we are projecting into the future creating psychological fear.
If we sit in the day and regret what happened the day before, then we are stuck in the past, a thing that cannot be changed and no longer exists.
These states of unconscious mind activity seem normal, yet in the conscious moment that is now, we realise that our mind is where the insanity is. We are dwelling on a past that no longer exists or projecting into an unreal future…crazy. Then basing our beliefs upon such insanity. Even madder.
If we sit in this moment and experience just this moment then we can let go of the insanity and be at peace. We can base our beliefs on the real-life moment and allow ourselves to be truly ourselves free from the madness our mind creates.
The people who are different, the ones that go the opposite way to the crowds, the heretics, the ones brave enough to be vulnerable and speak their truth from their soul without fear of others are nearly always dismissed and in some cases persecuted and in extremes killed by the ‘mob’.
However, it is better to be brave enough to be vulnerable, to be lambasted ,to walk in the wilderness on a lonely path, and even to be hated by all, rather than to live a life fearing others judgement and suffering not being our true selves. People fear the egotistical calamity of actually having to admit their shame and being wrong, so they override their true essence to save face.
Here’s to the rebel, the heretics, the crazy ones, the brave and true spirited. Keep being true to yourself.
