Is the past the guide to now?

The past is not the guide to what will happen now.

The past is exactly that and it no longer exists, apart from a memory in our minds.

As we are not our minds or the story, then what happened before is no longer relevant, unless we choose it to be.

We play the same repeating mind patterns over and over, if you identify with your mind, then the resulting action will be what the mind is telling you about your past. We become the thoughts.

If we disassociate with our thoughts, as they are simply mental forms that come and go, about 60,000 per day, then the doing now is all that is relevant. However, if we take each thought seriously, we’d be exhausted and often are, then we get the same outcome as before – it repeats.

If we stay focused on now and what we are doing now the past has no bearing and the flow from our soul and spirit comes into being and what happens is not the past. The only guide is the conscious moment, that is always the only thing that matters, and the only thing that is real. The rest is just in our minds.

Who hears the voice?

Who hears the voice in the head? When your mind creates a mental form of a thought, who hears it?

You…the real essence, spirit, soul, being, you hear it. Yet we believe in our unconscious state that we are the mind, we are our thoughts. We are not, the mind is just a part of us, the same as our ear is or finger or heart. Yet, most people, for most of their lives live out the story in their minds, they believe they are their thoughts and self-made story and ego. The voice has become so compelling and as it there constantly, it becomes the norm and we become it.

Once you realise it is you who hears the voice in the head, then you realise that you are not your thoughts, you are a greater consciousness and intelligence beyond the mind. We are the observer, a higher consciousness, we are the essence of life.

To realise this, you simply have to be the silent witness to your thoughts and do not energise them. When a thought comes, just listen, do not respond, do not energise it and like any form it rises and then goes. Thoughts that are not energised dissolve and disappear. We can choose to disassociate ourselves from them.

Once we realise this, then we are no longer dominated by our thoughts…we are free.

We are consciousness that is our pure essence.
