We imprison ourselves

We build a life through our own imagined self-image and imprison ourselves in it. We stay stuck in jobs, with friends, with partners and so on, fearing to break free, fearing to upset, fearing to be our true selves. We go against our true self, we resist it, we allow ourselves to be trapped in our self-created imaginary life.

We become attached to things and people, and even when we instinctively want to do something or get rid of something, we stay trapped in the attachment we have built. We do not accept that every form is temporary and we are flowing on a journey. Not everything has to be there forever, we can move on from things, people, jobs and so on.

Freedom is being truly ourselves and not being attached or dependent on things or others.

Be the silent witness



The only thing that restricts us is us, we know it deep down, yet it still happens all the time.

The thing is, it is our mind that sabotages us, so we think of ways to stop it.

Therein lies the challenge, thinking is in the mind, so we are trying to use our minds to overcome our minds.

The only way to stop restricting ourselves is, to stop thinking.

Easier said than done, well perhaps not. If we become conscious in the moment and simply witness our thoughts without energising them, they dissolve and we are free from the mind.

Again, like everything in life, it is a choice, we can choose to stay stuck, stuck in our thoughts and minds, being restricted by ourselves or we can choose to break free.

Be the silent witness.
