In the search for future salvation

Our constant search for future salvation and hope is constructed by our mind’s projection of the future that is better than the life we have now.

We may be discontented with our current life situation, most humans are. We seek solace in our mind’s projections of a future that is bright and what we will achieve to get to that place.

It’s an illusion, as the future is simply a mental construct in our mind, it is not a real thing, it does not exist. Each and every one of the 7 billion plus people on the planet constructs a future in their minds, none will be correct as it is not possible to be.

What happens though, is we are never really present for long in our current life, in fact, our only real life, so we fail to notice and appreciate what we already have. We are too busy fantasising about this marvellous future life we are going to live.

Stop looking for to the future for a fake salvation, we do not need it, we have all we already need right now to live a life that is meaningful, joyful and purpose-filled, it’s just we are too busy in our mind seeking solace to realise. We will always have all that we need if we live the real life that is now, this moment.

Doing things for the self-image

How much of what we do on a day-to-day basis is actually of any real purpose or meaning for our lives?

Perhaps a lot of what we do is to be seen to be doing things for the sake of our self-image in front of others or own mind’s eye, our egos.

We are obsessed with proving to others our capabilities or achievements when we have actually have no need to prove anything to others or ourselves at all. It is for a fear of being not good enough or own self-worth.

If we stopped doing things for the sake of our egos and did things that are truly important and have meaning, then what would life be like? Perhaps, we would not need to be right all the time? Maybe we would have better relationships with others as there would be less competitiveness.

Our egos get in the way of life, we are all already worthy regardless of what we do.

It’s not what we think matters in the eyes of others or in our own mind’s eye, it is doing what really matters in our hearts regardless of what others may think.
