We are all living a ‘walter mitty’

We all live a version of a ‘Walter Mitty’ story in our heads, we create these fantasy versions of ourselves, that we act out in our heads, and in many way, in our actions and behaviours in the exterior world.

The challenge is though, that this ‘better’ or more exciting life/story that we create never really materialises and this leads to disappointment. We are dissatisfied, so we create a ‘better’ life, that never happens and then there is only further suffering, always seeking better rather than allowing the amazing human soul that we all are shine bright.

We expect that our ‘Walter Mitty’ life will become real, but it never does, and that leads to a feeling of lack and discontent. It becomes a spiral with no escape from these created personas.

If only we realised that if we let go of all the stories, the fantasies, the roles, the ‘Walter Mitty’ and actually let our true essence shine that we all have the most amazing life and journey to have.

When we are free from the burden of the stories, then we can be at peace within and then we can truly enjoy life now as our true self.

Think our entire life

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.
