Whatever comes

What comes to us in life happens only in the present moment, not in the past, not in the future, it happens now.

Whatever comes, we can either deal with or not, we can accept it or not, we can allow it to affect our mood or not.

It is always a choice.

The universe brings us experiences, so it can experience itself through us, the universe has a consciousness and we are it along with all other living things.

In the conscious state, nothing that happens can affect us, only if we choose to make it matter and that comes from the mind. The mind and its story of ‘me’ is affected by everything.

Everything matters to our mind, however, the secret to a peace-filled and joyous life is that nothing matters. That does not mean we are always happy, it means we accept what is and are at peace inside.

It’s easy to be popular

There is a formula if you wish to follow it, that will get you lots of likes, followers and make you popular, but it lacks any soul, meaning, or purpose. It adds nothing but more noise to the continuous human story that we can all add to. Fluffy cat pictures still work, by the way.

It’s not about finding a big audience, it’s about finding your voice and finding something that you really want to say, something that will add to the ongoing human narrative.

There might not be a huge audience straight away or ever, but with patience and sticking to what really matters to you, it will resonate with the people who really care about what you care about. You can become a shining light for them to follow.
