Controlling us

There are real tangible things, like a rock or a tree, perhaps a house, or a horse.

Then there are the myths that humans created, like countries, laws, money, a limited company, and so on. These things are of the mind and only exist as long as we all collectively keep the myth going by believing and abiding by them.

If we are not content with the world and the myths that control us, then we can stop following them or create some new myths.

But be certain, myths are what has been controlling humans for 10’s of thousands of years.

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.
