Nothing turns out like we imagine it will, by default, our mind and its ego conjure up the worst possible outcome…sometimes, almost quite unimaginable!
If life turned out as we imagine, firstly, what would the point be, as the uncertainty of life is what makes it special and secondly, life would be miserable, as we imagine the future to be challenging.
What if we decided not to waste our energy on predicting something we can’t predict as the future isn’t real beyond our mind? What if we decided to focus our energies on enjoy this moment now, the only time that we are actually alive? What if we stopped creating our own suffering worrying about something that will never happen in a time that isn’t real?
Perhaps, life would be more enjoyable, worth a try maybe?
When we just go about life simply, just taking in each moment, when we stay away from drama, judgement and criticism, we free ourselves from so much internal suffering.
We literally let the stress, tension and heaviness lift from each cell of our body, we feel better physically, mentally…our soul shines its light on the world.
It’s all about the focus of our energy onto the joy of whatever we are doing now, even if that’s doing nothing, it is where to put our focus and where we focus is where our energy goes.
When we make things about the simple joy of the experience we are creating right now then there is no time or energy/space for the repetitive and sabotaging thought that often occupies most of our time.
Life isn’t complicate, unless we choose to make it that way, and then, of course, we suffer the consequence of that choice.
