We are what we are

We are what we are right now. Our level of consciousness is what it is.

We can, of course, make ourselves feel bad by looking back into the unreal past and think what we could have done better. But we didn’t, so why look back?

Then we can say ‘by this time, I’ll be…’ and then create stress and resistance by projecting into the unreal future, where most often lies psychological fear for us. We will believe that this and that will happen as a consequence of doing or not doing, or maybe what the weather might do, or the government, or some virus will get us.

The thing is, now is our real life and instead of thinking about our life, we can actually be life in this moment and do. The thing is it is always better to just do and not think.

Accept ourselves always for what we are now and not what we might have been or could or should be. That thinking always brings suffering. Enjoying life by creating experiences right now is why we are here not to spend time in pain within our thoughts.

Nothing is the colour we think it is

The sky isn’t blue or the grass isn’t green or the banana isn’t yellow or the sea isn’t light blue or the snow isn’t white. That is only how our mind sees things through its conditioning of what colours things are, it comes from school and early years.

The same thing with how we see people too. We label them and then we do not see them as they really are, we see them as the label and the judgement that goes with the label.

They speak and we do not hear them, the walk past and we instantly react within to them, a stranger that we’ve never met. We experience fear even based on what they might be wearing.

If we stop and just observe without engaging our mind, we actually see and we do not label or react. Then we realise that nothing is the colour we think, or the person, or event, that the label we created it to be.

Imagine a life where we actually saw…reality.
