What we become

I get angry, it’s OK.

I get frustrated, it’s OK.

I cry, it’s OK.

I get fearful, it’s OK.

I suffer anxiety, it’s OK.

I get sad, it’s OK.

I get all kinds of emotions, it’s OK.

If we accept who we are, where we are at in our journey, our emotions, our thoughts, our level of consciousness and surrender to them all, then all of those emotions are ok, let them be. They have then space to be and to fade as all things do.

If we let them be, they pass, if we resist them, we become them.

There could be a Walter Mitty in us all

Each and every one of us has fantasies about a different life, where we say things that perhaps we are not brave enough to say in real life, or we do things that we are fearful of doing in reality…perhaps we skydive, bungee jump or wrestle bears. Perhaps we have the job we really want in our heads but don’t know how to get to it in our actual life.

An imagination and daydreaming are essential for creativity and sadly in our current world, there is little time for fantasising, daydreaming and imagining a different life.

If we do not act upon these thoughts, however, then there is eventually a danger that we live one life in our heads and a quite different one in reality which only leads to an internal frustration and eventually a regret.

We could become Walter Mitty.
