Theories

We so often in life add 2 and 2 and make whatever the mind wants it to be. No matter what others say or do, we always end up with the same theory in our head…because that’s what our story within wants.

Once we have a theory, and it always how it affects us and usually we see ourselves as being the victim, then the mind will filter anything it sees or hears with that theory. So everything fits the theory. We find what we are looking for regardless of the reality.

Then, unsurprisingly, our theory quiet often seems to come to pass!

We manifest our own reality by attaching ourselves to the mind and its thoughts.

If we just accept what is and allow others to be, we can just be too. Then whatever happens, happens, which it will anyway whatever we think. If we remove the judgemental lenses, then we see people and things without the need to evaluate or fit it to our ‘theory’. The theory is just a fantasy projection in our head into the fiction that is the unreal future…the future doesn’t exist except in our mind.

Drama always finds more drama, victims always become more victimised and bad things always find more bad things. We can choose to have none of it if we step away from the mind and its theories.

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.
