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.

Motionless

We sit still
We sit motionlessly
We click
We type
We touch plastic
We create from behind a screen
We make nothing real
We make nothing that we can touch
We use our hands simply to tap plastic
We do it endlessly for hours
We do it without moving

Get up
Leave the screen
Leave the keyboard
Get out from the screen
Go and do something real

We were not born to be motionless

Death is motionless
