If we sit

‘Old Father Thames’ by Philip Dodson

If we sit at night and dread the coming day, then we are projecting into the future creating psychological fear.

If we sit in the day and regret what happened the day before, then we are stuck in the past, a thing that cannot be changed and no longer exists.

These states of unconscious mind activity seem normal, yet in the conscious moment that is now, we realise that our mind is where the insanity is. We are dwelling on a past that no longer exists or projecting into an unreal future…crazy. Then basing our beliefs upon such insanity. Even madder.

If we sit in this moment and experience just this moment then we can let go of the insanity and be at peace. We can base our beliefs on the real-life moment and allow ourselves to be truly ourselves free from the madness our mind creates.

A mad world?

The world hasn’t gone mad…we have inside.

The insanity of the human mind and its dialogues is the madness.

If we stay away from the repeating thought, then there is only sanity. Past and future are constructs of the mind and they are the causes of pain inside which leads to the madness of our actions externally. The ego drives all of it. We have to be right, we have to ‘protect’, we have to win and so on.

Peace and calm are always here, right now, inside us. The mad world is of our making.
