Free from the burden of events

Whatever happens, it has happened, so the less energy we expend on whatever has already occurred, the better for us. Situations arise in life and as they do, it has already arisen, it has happened, we can not change it. It instantly becomes the past as each moment unfolds.

When we do not like something that has occurred, we almost want to deny it has happened, or look to blame someone or ourselves. We give all our energy to this and often become angry or frustrated and think about why it happened. ‘Why me’.

Then once we’ve suffered from the event and the denial, the mind moves onto all the terrible things that will likely now occur as a consequence. The mind has now switched from the denial of the past to the psychological fear created by the fantasy that is the future. So we switch from annoyance to fear.

Suffering from events is based on the mind’s denial of what is and then the projection of what might happen. Neither of these activities of the mind is anything other than just thought, it is not real.

This moment is real and if we always accept what is as it is, then act now, if we choose and then do not waste any further energy, then we are free from suffering, at peace. We might not like what is happened, but we accept it has, when we surrender to what is, then we are free from burden and are able to move on.

Trust it

There’s a theory and a counter theory to everything. Some things are good for you and then some of the same things are bad for you according to another.

There are always these paradoxes and polarisation of views about any situation or topic.

You can read one thing and everything looks great and then another article or post and then it all seems bad again.

There is so much information and data for almost everything. We are swamped with information and blind to our own wisdom.

The thing is none of it matters. It is our own feelings that we can follow. We are born knowing all that really matters. We have all the true wisdom we will ever need for life, we are equipped to deal with anything.

Not facts and figures, stuff of the thinking mind, I’m talking about real wisdom from our very essence, from our soul. Innate intelligence which is beyond the limits of our ego driven story. We instinctively know yet the mind tries to block our feelings and intuition.

We have no need to ‘Google it’ we already innately know the answer to everything in life. Trust it.
