Life is mainly without incident

Our day to day life is mainly without incident in reality. If we are in the moment, that is now, our real-life and only life, there is rarely anything that is worth a worry or to be fearful about. After all, we can only experience life in this present moment, past and future are of the mind. Tomorrow, when we get there is now. Yesterday does not exist.

In fact, the more conscious we are and the more in this moment we focus, the more we can experience a life without any problems. If a situation arises, we tend to calmly deal with it or not. We accept what is, is, how can it be anything other than what it is and whatever has happened, has happened, it is in a past moment and therefore unalterable and only now exists as a memory in our mind, even if it was a second ago.

However, when we stay in our minds our life situation is made up of memories of the past or projections of the future and we are completely unaware of the present moment. Our lives are therefore in our mind and are full of worry, angst, fear, anxiety, jealousy, rage, emotions, suffering and all the other things that our mind will construct for us, blissfully unaware of the moment that we are in.

A simple, peaceful, calm and joyful life is here now for all of us in this precise moment, once we step into the mind, we choose to suffer.

Be the silent witness

The only thing that restricts us is us, we know it deep down, yet it still happens all the time.

The thing is, it is our mind that sabotages us, so we think of ways to stop it.

Therein lies the challenge, thinking is in the mind, so we are trying to use our minds to overcome our minds.

The only way to stop restricting ourselves is, to stop thinking.

Easier said than done, well perhaps not. If we become conscious in the moment and simply witness our thoughts without energising them, they dissolve and we are free from the mind.

Again, like everything in life, it is a choice, we can choose to stay stuck, stuck in our thoughts and minds, being restricted by ourselves or we can choose to break free.

Be the silent witness.
