The exterior world

What we consume mentally from the exterior world will only affect us if we choose to connect our mind to it.

If we simply allow it to pass, like clouds on the wind, then it will not affect us.

If we choose to absorb it, suck it in, attach to it…then we will become it.

Disconnect from it, leave it alone, and it does not exist. It is, of course, a choice.

There isn’t an answer

By Philip Dodson

The less we know, the happier and more peaceful we can be.

The human mind is obsessed with having to know, needing an answer, a definitive…yet knowing doesn’t always bring peace or joy and the pain of not knowing causes suffering too. The more we seek certainty through answers, the more suffering we cause ourselves as the beauty of life is the uncertainty of this moment and what we can choose to do or not. If everything was certain, then there is no life.

Better to accept that there does not have to be answer, we do not need to know. Be happy and grateful for all that is and do not waste moments or a life wondering what the answer is…accept that for many things, there isn’t answer.
