Most humans, we spend nearly all of our time engaged in the unreal stories of our mind’s ego and the minds projections into the future, and its re-writes of our past, we think that our life is like a rehearsal, that we can just keep acting out the fantasies of our mind. We create a fictional character(s) and live this fictional ‘existence’ inside.
All the time we are doing this, we are stuck in our heads and missing the real unfolding moments…our actual life. We are denying ourselves the chance to move from a life of mental concepts to a real life of actual experiences.
We can either choose to think our entire life, essentially a concept, or we can actually live it, now, which is an act that takes thoughts from a concept into an experience.
Every one of us thinks in our mind that we are always right.
Yet all of us can not be right all the time, because, in my mind, my ego tells me that you are wrong at the same time someone else believes they are right and therefore I must be wrong.
Why have humans not realised that we can not be right all the time and others always wrong? It’s not possible.
Simple, our ego will not allow us to be wrong. Even if we reluctantly accept that we are wrong and say so out loud, deep down the mind will work its magic to convince itself that it was still right, there were factors that made us temporarily make an error but we were still right.
The fact is, to our true essence and self, right or wrong does not matter. Yet we waste so much energy and focus on being right, all the time.
Perhaps we can just choose to neither agree nor disagree and just acknowledge the other person but not pass a judgement. Imagine how quickly conflict would go away.
