It will soon be over

Soon it will be over…the drama, the fear, the division, we’ll be free again, safe and no more to worry about and then what? This is what every human says throughout all ages and events as if there will be no more drama.

It will be replaced by something else. That’s how the story goes, the mind and its ego. There will always be the next drama if we choose it.

There is a different choice though, we can live free of fear, drama, and all that goes with it. We can choose to be more present, live more now, in this moment, and away from our thoughts. We can choose to be conscious, aware and at peace. We can choose not to label something ‘bad’ or make endless judgements about situations and people.

It is the mind that thrives on fear and drama, if there isn’t any, it will create it, similar to the collective mind. The collective mind is the sum of all the individual minds attached to it and one feeds the other in a constant cycle. The only way to break free is to disconnect from it, that’s the collective mind and our own.

We hold out so much hope for an end to something, believing it will bring us joy and happiness, however, if you are not joyful and happy now, then you will not be when something you perceive as bad ends.

It is all within us, it is all a choice. It seems hard and difficult, but that is the mind sabotaging us, all we need to focus on is just now, this moment, and not to over-complicate it with thoughts of sustaining it or whether or not you are doing it right.

Now, simplicity, peace.

A guide to life

The past is exactly that, the past, it no longer exists except for the image and memory associated with that image inside our heads.

Simply because an outcome happened in a particular way a week ago, a month ago, or 5 years ago, does not mean that is what will happen now.

It may happen the same way if we listen to the mind and allow it to control our thoughts, emotions, reactions and actions. If we allow things to be, act according to the situation now and use our mind creatively instead of it possessing us destructively using the past as the only guide, then the outcome will be what will be now not what happened before.

The past is not the guide to what you will do or achieve now. Now is the moment and our focus on that is what matters.
