If we focus on doing and not the outcome, then we become in this moment and experience the joy of doing. Things get done.
If we focus on the outcome and not the doing, then we enter the thinking mind and project into the unknown fantasy that is the future. Instead of experiencing the joy doing, we suffer the pain that psychological fear brings to us from the mind. Nothing gets done.
Our lives are made up of 99% what we are conditioned to believe are just ordinary moments. We whisk through them on the race to the next big thing.
Always searching and wanting to be at the end, at the outcome…at the next ‘big thing’.
We do not want the ordinary moment, we do not want the doing we want the ending.
Yet if we saw each so called ordinary moment as a magical real-life moment where the joy of doing is far greater than the fictional mind-created future outcome we would actually enjoy the 99% of our life that we skip and do not even notice.
Don’t wish for the 1% that we never enjoy when it does comes because we are always onto the next big thing. Instead live the ordinary magical moment, after all we are only here once.
