Just be

'Thought' by Philip Dodson

Once we label ourselves as something…a leader, dominant, or a follower, an organiser, an alpha male/female, a rebel , a good person, a bad person, a whatever, it doesn’t matter what the label is, then we become that role. It is a role created by our mind and its ego. We often have many roles, a work mask, a home mask, there are many to wear.

We are not any particular thing, we are just a ball of energy, a beautiful human soul, housed in a physical carnation. We do not need to be one role or another, we just need to be.

Once we associate with the egoic labels and its creations, then the suffering comes, then we have to be a certain persona and defend its status against others, we then have to act out the role and all the stress that creates maintaining it so others do not judge or threaten it. There is an internal pressure created by the ego to play out these roles and maintain them for fear of what others might think if we slip up.

Life in this moment, just simply being our true essence is without all the drama and suffering of having to act out, maintain and defend a role. We are just a simple human soul enjoy this now moment.

Just be.

Keep it simple

When we just go about life simply, just taking in each moment, when we stay away from drama, judgement and criticism, we free ourselves from so much internal suffering.

We literally let the stress, tension and heaviness lift from each cell of our body, we feel better physically, mentally…our soul shines its light on the world.

It’s all about the focus of our energy onto the joy of whatever we are doing now, even if that’s doing nothing, it is where to put our focus and where we focus is where our energy goes.

When we make things about the simple joy of the experience we are creating right now then there is no time or energy/space for the repetitive and sabotaging thought that often occupies most of our time.

Life isn’t complicate, unless we choose to make it that way, and then, of course, we suffer the consequence of that choice.

Keep everything simple and joy will come.
