Making something

When we create something tangible, real, an object, art, a sculpture, making food, a cake, something from wood or metal, whatever that is…there is a real connection with the object and process. As humans we love to have that connection, however, in a mainly digital world, we are no longer crafting anything by hand.

When we work on a screen, the mind is active, the brain is constantly stimulated and when we are online, then there are endless distractions. However, when we do something manual and physical, the mind is quiet and we are in the moment enjoying the doing, we are concentrating and then we are at peace within.

Making something real is also creating a real life, this moment experience and that is the essence of life.

Go and build or make something and see how it brings joy.

It’s just a myth

It’s all just a myth…and we choose which ones we will follow and support. It’s how homo sapiens evolved and how modern humans we are able to control each other through mind created concepts.

Money…just a myth.

Laws…just a myth.

A company…just a myth.

Society…just a myth.

And so on. It is not a real thing.

A chair, a tree, a bird, another human are physical things, all the rest are things that are created as stories, myths, within the human mind. They are intangible, just a concept. However, nearly all of our daily activity is driven by our acceptance of these myths or concepts.

The thing is once enough people stop subscribing to a particular myth, then the myth loses its’ power and hold, it is no longer accepted.

The control of groups of humans by others throughout history has been achieved by creating myths that have hold over people.

It is interesting to observe what myths will emerge and ebb away.
