Another perspective

To the mind, everything is serious and urgent. It all matters. There is no perspective, just the ‘heat’ of the moment of whatever thoughts are causing suffering. It dominates everything, if we allow it.

When we have no perspective other than that of our mind, we suffer, we cause ourselves fear. That leads to anxiety, anger, frustration, worry…essentially a whole host of different emotions that create turbulence in our bodies and affect our actions, if we become the reaction.

There is always another option, a different route, a different perspective. We can choose to allow our thoughts to be, to not take them seriously, to not become the reaction.

When we have a perspective of calm, based on being present in the moment, our consciousness allows us to see that nothing matters, other than being present and enjoying the reality of being alive.

A mad world?

The world hasn’t gone mad…we have inside.

The insanity of the human mind and its dialogues is the madness.

If we stay away from the repeating thought, then there is only sanity. Past and future are constructs of the mind and they are the causes of pain inside which leads to the madness of our actions externally. The ego drives all of it. We have to be right, we have to ‘protect’, we have to win and so on.

Peace and calm are always here, right now, inside us. The mad world is of our making.
