No amount of caution, safety, protection, medication, worry, regulations, testing, hiding or precautions will change what will be. We can’t keep allowing our mind’s fears to make us want to run away from life.
That doesn’t mean we have to be stupidly reckless, well, unless you want to choose that for your own journey. After all, our life is our choice and we’re here just once in this current carnation.
If we stay present and away from our mind and its self-created psychological fears of ‘what might happen’, then there is little need for anything other that just enjoying life. Living is a risk, that’s what makes it amazing.
One day it ends for us all no matter what we do. Accept it, live always now and leave worrying behind.
The biggest challenge we all face is letting go so that we do the things we really want to do.
We are tricked by our mind and its sabotage that it is easier to walk away from truly letting go and to stay in the safety of where we are.
The challenge is that this only causes us more turmoil and longer-term it becomes harder and harder.
We resist the things we fear the most, as the mind creates the fear and the further it is from what it sees as safety the more psychological fear it will create. We do not fear what we do not want or desire, we do not fear something that we are not interested in doing, or experiencing.
Yet this is the guide, fear is the guide, because safety is suffering and the mind and risk is living, is experiencing, is joy, is jumping off the diving board, and being truly ourselves.
