When you try to do with the mind, as your thought and imagination engaged, then doubt comes. When all your energies are engaged with the future outcome, your ego steps in and we lose consciousness and are no longer in the moment, focus goes.
If you allow your mind to go silent and just go with the flow of thing you are doing, if let go of thinking about the outcome and result, you let the pressure go, your ego is no longer there, so you are not fearing failure, or ridicule or anything. The doing will flow through you and will happen without any resistance or negative thoughts.
The joy of the doing comes and what you are doing just unfolds with ease.
When the thing we so crave, desire and fight for happens, then there is often emptiness, nothing, a letdown. All that negative energy we have used to get to it.
The more we fixate our minds on things, especially material things or superficial ones, the more pain and suffering it brings us to get things that we didn’t need and bring us no joy. We simply move onto more pain to get the next thing, hoping that may bring us joy.
It is a repeating process driven by our falsely mind-created self-image, we crave things to fit our made-up story of who we are and think it brings us happiness as it goes with the role we are playing out in our head.
Who we really are is beyond the mind, and does not need anything to bring joy, as deep in our soul there is peace, calm, love and joy always. We are untouchable from the fantasy world that our mind inhabits. The world that most see as normal life!
Just be grateful for all that you have, use your inner energy to be at peace and to go with the flow of each unfolding moment, the universe will bring us what our soul needs and there will be only calm and no suffering, no negative energy fighting for things that are not needed.
