Confused

In countries where food is not plentiful, life is more simple, they have less of most things and people often sit in a group of friends or family and perhaps pray or say something to express their gratitude for what they have and what they are about to eat.

In other parts of the world, where food is plentiful and very often wasted, where people often sit alone to eat, the only thing that happens is people take a photo of their food and post it on Instagram for others to like. Then return to their smartphones and eat, not just consuming food but consuming yet more data.

We’re confused in our thinking that having everything equates to happiness. The people who have the least tend to have the most gratitude and joy in life and those that have it all are often unfulfilled.

More of something

Counter to the world’s dominant thinking and conditioning, more of something is not what it is about. More leads to less. Less happiness, less contentment, less joy, less energy, less awareness, less purpose, less consciousness.

More money, more food, more drugs, more sex, more gambling, more, more, more… an addiction, the disease of the human mind.

That is not the route to true joy, inner peace, purpose and fulfilment. More is an addiction of the mind, the ego, the false self-image that is based on the non-existent time dimensions of the past and future that our mind and collective minds construct. We become the thinker instead of the real person beyond thought.

In the present real moment, that is our life, when we are awake and conscious, the concept of more is irrelevant and does not exist, we are accepting and grateful for what we have now.

The concept of needing more of anything to bring happiness and salvation doesn’t matter as we are free of our egoic state. We are not attached to our thoughts or our need for instant gratification, we are free from our addictions and sense of worth be derived from possessions and the pursuit of pleasure.

Less thought, less ego, less unconscious mindstreams will lead to inner peace, joy and meaning.

Less not more.
