Thinking gets in the way

By Philip Dodson

It’s thinking about it that gets in the way.

Live a life as you feel now and do it…just let go.

Life does not come with a manual or guide book, there are no right or wrong choices and nothing matters, unless you want to suffer it.

Fall totally in love with now, this moment and enjoy it, there is nothing else.

Risk is being ourselves

The biggest challenge we all face is letting go so that we do the things we really want to do.

We are tricked by our mind and its sabotage that it is easier to walk away from truly letting go and to stay in the safety of where we are.

The challenge is that this only causes us more turmoil and longer-term it becomes harder and harder.

We resist the things we fear the most, as the mind creates the fear and the further it is from what it sees as safety the more psychological fear it will create. We do not fear what we do not want or desire, we do not fear something that we are not interested in doing, or experiencing.

Yet this is the guide, fear is the guide, because safety is suffering and the mind and risk is living, is experiencing, is joy, is jumping off the diving board, and being truly ourselves.
