Look at me…I’m special

We can say, write, do and act in any way to grab attention.

The attention that it will receive is short-lived, because another person seeking attention can come along and go one better.

If it’s attention we seek, we will always be lacking within, as attention, like any form, does not last. The chemical-fuelled hit inside us feels good for the moment, but like any drug that alters our peaceful inner self, it goes and like any high, there is always the corresponding low. The longer it continues the less impact the drug has and there are only the lows.

The human race is now addicted to attention, stuck within its mind and ego, seeking solace from another. No sustained joy and fulfilment can come from seeking from another.

The best attention is to pay attention to the inner soul within us and be attentive to this present moment. Consciousness is true attention to our real life that is now and will bring calm, peace, love and light to us.

It has to be defended

When we have a position to defend, we act out of anger, frustration, rage, we become the emotion and it then causes the other person to react and defend too.

When we are conscious and we have let go of the ego, then we express our opinion or act free of attachment to the view, we simply voice our opinion and do not have to fight to be right, after all, it is just a view.

The reaction from the other is very different and the outcome too.

It has to be defended when we are controlled by the ego.
