Change, reaction, fear, worry, love, kindness, joy, hate…the list could go on, all of it is inside us.
We decide to react or not, stay stuck in our minds or not, be our egos or not, be whatever. We decide it all. We choose to label situations with the word problem, we choose to be the emotions that are fear, worry, anger and so on. We choose to be the reaction instead of accepting what is.
We look to the exterior when all that happens in our life comes from within and within is something we control.
The answer is within us all.
Our constant search for future salvation and hope is constructed by our mind’s projection of the future that is better than the life we have now.
We may be discontented with our current life situation, most humans are. We seek solace in our mind’s projections of a future that is bright and what we will achieve to get to that place.
It’s an illusion, as the future is simply a mental construct in our mind, it is not a real thing, it does not exist. Each and every one of the 7 billion plus people on the planet constructs a future in their minds, none will be correct as it is not possible to be.
What happens though, is we are never really present for long in our current life, in fact, our only real life, so we fail to notice and appreciate what we already have. We are too busy fantasising about this marvellous future life we are going to live.
Stop looking for to the future for a fake salvation, we do not need it, we have all we already need right now to live a life that is meaningful, joyful and purpose-filled, it’s just we are too busy in our mind seeking solace to realise. We will always have all that we need if we live the real life that is now, this moment.
