Waiting for the train

Waiting for a train, a plane, a bus, a friend to arrive, for your turn in the queue…the majority of the human race use this time to stare into a screen on their smartphone, to be connected to the digital matrix. To avoid the ‘boredom’ of the mind not being occupied.

Most of that time will be spent on social media/messaging apps.

In itself there is nothing good or bad about this. However, we spend plenty of time waiting in our life, yet instead of being in that moment and experiencing our surroundings, perhaps an opportunity to interact with another human, read a book, or simply just be and be at peace and see the amazing world that is all around, we are sucked into the unconsciousness of the mind and the drama and toxicity that a great deal of the digital world is for most of us.

We are often inducing stress and anxiety at the same time as missing our real-life moment.

Wait for the train in peace by just being in the moment and experiencing our real life and being aware of the beauty and amazing things that surround us always. Just think how many things we missed or real humans we didn’t talk to because we couldn’t stand to ‘wait’ without being occupied by something to stimulate the mind.

Our soul shines

When we start to recognise the many repeating thought patterns that are negative and destructive, that is a major step to disassociating with them. To recognise it means that we have become conscious and in the moment, that awareness is the key step.

Most of our lives we are in an unconscious state, stuck within negative thought patterns, that we become attached to and actually we become them. They manifest into our actions and beliefs.

These thought patterns end up sabotaging us and prohibit us from being in this moment now, they stop us experiencing real life. We are too busy thinking to actually notice we’re alive!

When we realise that we are not our thoughts, we transcend thought and then realise we are the witness to our thoughts, we are spiritual human being and not the myriad of personas that the mind has constructed to fit our ego and its stories.

This realisation frees us from being trapped in the unconscious thought-obsessed state and we can then be free to experience life in this conscious moment. Our soul shines and our ego starts to wane.
