What they think about me

Just stop, for a moment, right now, and realise how much of what we do on a daily basis is based on our mind’s imaginary projections of what other people think of us and how we imagine they judge us.

It subconsciously affects so much of what we do, say, eat, how we dress, the car we drive, the job we do, our house, and the list goes on. Our ego is so affected by this imaginary mind-construct of other people and their view of us.

Amazingly, nearly 8 billion people are constantly thinking about what others think of them.

What if we stopped imagining or caring about what others think about us?

How would that change our actions? What would we do differently?

The moment we become conscious of this is actually the moment we are in this present moment, it is how we break the association with our mind-streams and endless thoughts of how we are judged.

Consciousness breaks the chain of thought, it allows us to realise what others think doesn’t matter and it allows us to realise that we are who we are. We can accept ourselves and others too.

It could change your life forever and it’s a choice we can make right now.

We are what we are

We are what we are right now. Our level of consciousness is what it is.

We can, of course, make ourselves feel bad by looking back into the unreal past and think what we could have done better. But we didn’t, so why look back?

Then we can say ‘by this time, I’ll be…’ and then create stress and resistance by projecting into the unreal future, where most often lies psychological fear for us. We will believe that this and that will happen as a consequence of doing or not doing, or maybe what the weather might do, or the government, or some virus will get us.

The thing is, now is our real life and instead of thinking about our life, we can actually be life in this moment and do. The thing is it is always better to just do and not think.

Accept ourselves always for what we are now and not what we might have been or could or should be. That thinking always brings suffering. Enjoying life by creating experiences right now is why we are here not to spend time in pain within our thoughts.
