We imprison ourselves

We build a life through our own imagined self-image and imprison ourselves in it. We stay stuck in jobs, with friends, with partners and so on, fearing to break free, fearing to upset, fearing to be our true selves. We go against our true self, we resist it, we allow ourselves to be trapped in our self-created imaginary life.

We become attached to things and people, and even when we instinctively want to do something or get rid of something, we stay trapped in the attachment we have built. We do not accept that every form is temporary and we are flowing on a journey. Not everything has to be there forever, we can move on from things, people, jobs and so on.

Freedom is being truly ourselves and not being attached or dependent on things or others.

What you have

When was the last time you actually took the time to consider what you have at this moment in your life?

We spend most of our lives wishing to be in another moment and often with more stuff, more money, more success, more, more, more.

We are born with all that we need and we’ll die with all that we need, no amount of ‘more stuff’ will alter that.

What we all have now, as in right now, is life. Appreciate that and let all the rest go and enjoy peace, not happiness or misery, but the true joy that peace brings no matter how much you have or don’t.
