Everything or not much

For all of us, our life can change in an instant moment if we choose it to be.

Throughout our journey events happen and it changes everything or not much. The ‘everything’ is the mind’s perspective and ‘not much’ is the soul’s acceptance of what is.

It is how we react to these events that matter most.

If we see events as simply an occurrence, a situation in this present moment that has unfolded, then within we accept that. Then we do not become a reaction, we do not make it part of the story, we do not attach to it and we do not judge it good or bad. We can just be and then make a peaceful choice as to the action, or no action, that we can take.

Living without constant evaluation is challenging, as the mind always has to label and to relate every occurrence to how it affects the story of ‘little me’. We then suffer for every life event, in some cases, we become the drama and the mind searches and creates more and more. Drama becomes our very existence.

However, the more we accept, the more peaceful our life is and events are drama-free and not much.

Dramas

The mind needs dramas and when we feed it and energise them, then it will search and create the next one.

Even when we say ‘I don’t care anymore’ we become attached to the story of ‘I don’t care anymore’ and become angry when someone disturbs that.

We can only escape from the trickery of the mind and its ego by simply observing thought and letting it be without resistance, otherwise, the moment we acknowledge it, then the powerful force that is our mind takes control.

The greatest test is to just be, and when we just be and become the observer, then peace and silence is what we experience within.

Dramas are of the mind and involve the mind blaming others and other circumstances, it is a defence mechanism for its fragile ego.

Acceptance removes resistance and observation of thought rather than becoming it is the key to ending dramas. dramas are not others, they are our mind.
