Everything will depend on which end of the telescope you’re looking down…it’s all just a view. But views take on a power of their own once we attach to them.
Perspective is uniquely ours and thus most things are just that, according to our mind’s perspective or en masse from the collective mind’s perspective.
If we choose to just observe without evaluation, free from our mind’s take on it, then we can simply enjoy the observation and see what is, rather than what our mind is telling us is.
Opinions, views, and even wars come from one person’s view being adopted by the collective mind. We attach to things that relate to our mind’s story and then they become part of our own ego and must be defended, literally at all costs.
The collective mind is now freely available 24/7 via our smartphone…we are all connected to that matrix. So the collective mind is even more consuming and powerful. We become it.
If we are brave enough, then we can simply switch off that collective mind and see what changes in our life.
Worth a try if you find the collective affecting you in any way.
It could be…or it might not be.
It is all a personal opinion. It will depend on your view.
Opinions are formed by our ego and they are temporary mental forms, that we attach to, and then they have to be defended at all costs, in many cases, quite literally by some crazy ego-maniacs.
This is the challenge with attachment, it becomes personal. We label everything as ‘my ‘x”. For example, once ‘the car’ becomes ‘my car’, rather than just ‘the car’ then it is an extension of ourselves and so if someone scratches it, it is felt like we’ve been scratched.
The same is true with opinions, once we attach to them and the ego is involved, then it is seen by the mind as a matter of life and death. The ego is fragile and to be wrong is a threat to its very existence.
It really does not matter whether or not this is the world’s greatest blog post or not, it does not matter if you like it or not. What matters to me is that I enjoy the doing, I enjoy writing this, in this moment and it brings me joy. If it brings something to others, well that is an added piece of joy for me.
Anything else is for other people’s minds and views and my view is simply that, a view that matters not.
This is a path that will lead to peace and no pressure or burden of expectation
