The story you tell yourself every day, you know the repeating one in your head that goes over and over the same story, how is that working out for you?
Is it bringing you joy, peace and calm?
Or does it bring self-doubt, issues with your sense of worth, a lack of confidence, a comparison to others, judgement, anger, frustration? Does it stop you from enjoying the present moment? Does it project you into a future where everything will be ok? Does it constantly refer to the past?
If it isn’t serving you presence, peace and joy, then, perhaps it is time to stop listening to the story the mind has created for you and just enjoy this moment.
We are so conditioned to be driven by the outcome or result.
Our society is based on winners and losers, achievements and other things that can be easily measured by increases, like a bigger salary, a bigger house, a bigger job and so on.
The obsession with productivity, action and results is not enriching our lives it is killing our souls instead.
It is the biggest swizz of more modern history and the industrial age. We have allowed our worth to be linked to what we do or have. It’s great for keeping us as cogs in the machine, slaves to work, slaves to a lifestyle, slaves to debt, slaves to the mind.
An alternative is to accept that we are born worthy and will die worthy no matter what we achieve or have, thus freeing us from the conditioning and the mind to allow our souls to be free.
We can still do whatever we want, but we do not let it define or enslave us.
