More of something

Counter to the world’s dominant thinking and conditioning, more of something is not what it is about. More leads to less. Less happiness, less contentment, less joy, less energy, less awareness, less purpose, less consciousness.

More money, more food, more drugs, more sex, more gambling, more, more, more… an addiction, the disease of the human mind.

That is not the route to true joy, inner peace, purpose and fulfilment. More is an addiction of the mind, the ego, the false self-image that is based on the non-existent time dimensions of the past and future that our mind and collective minds construct. We become the thinker instead of the real person beyond thought.

In the present real moment, that is our life, when we are awake and conscious, the concept of more is irrelevant and does not exist, we are accepting and grateful for what we have now.

The concept of needing more of anything to bring happiness and salvation doesn’t matter as we are free of our egoic state. We are not attached to our thoughts or our need for instant gratification, we are free from our addictions and sense of worth be derived from possessions and the pursuit of pleasure.

Less thought, less ego, less unconscious mindstreams will lead to inner peace, joy and meaning.

Less not more.

Money

You can’t eat it, in fact, in the digital world, we hardly even have real hard cash in our hands anymore. It is only of value all the time we believe the myth.

The challenge now is many believe that it is the salvation to all their ills and pains. They believe that once they have money and plenty of it, then happiness will arrive.

Today, apparently, is International Happiness Day, a strange concept really, firstly why would it only be for one day, and secondly happiness is a short-term emotional spike that often lasts for a moment and is always associated with a corresponding down moment, so better to be realising the joy that is always with us in the present moment.

The thing is if, as many desire, you come into money, the unhappiness and happiness of life will not change, sure short-term there will be a chemical-fuelled hit to the body as we spend money like we never had. But within a short space of time, all our woes will still be there.

Better to look within and realise that there is always joy and peace to be had no matter what happens in our life situation. We are like a deep lake or sea, the surface maybe choppy, stormy or calm, but the deep sea or lake is always still no matter what.

Our inner energy and soul does not need money to have a meaningful life. We’re born rich no matter how much money we have.
