How do we solve all the problems that confront us?
The solution is to look inside of ourself. This is the place where all the solutions are. Each of us only need to be responsible for ourself.
When we look inside we will be shown the truth about everything. Can we handle the truth? Can we see where we are stuck? Can we change our stubborn mindset? Realign ourself to the realities of life.
Why can’t we just tell the truth no matter how much it hurts our pride.
Telling ourself untruths does not only corrupt us but it twists us up and turns us inside out.
It is fine to make mistakes and get things wrong. We need to own up. We need to be self aware. Many do not care and they do not want to look at themself.
We need to stop telling ourself lies and making ourself believe in the lies until we no longer can tell the difference between the truth and a lie. We end up hurting ourself and everybody.
Many problems will become unsolvable
Non duality is the space that is neither half full or half empty but it is just half.
To me everything around us is about balance. Balanced emotional state, balanced diet, balanced thinking and mindset and balanced relationships. Between ourself and others, between family and friends. Inner and outer is the same and everything is even. Balanced. Just right.
Freedom comes when we are brave enough to face our issues and change our stubborn mindset.
When we have problems it is because of our attitude and mindset that gives us problems. It is not about what was done to us but what we did to ourself because of what was done to us.
2017 Word of the Year. COMPLICIT.
Complicit means ” choosing to be involved in an illegal or questionable act, especially with others; having partnership or involment in wrongdoing.”
It does not matter that someone is guilty of complicity. I just need to check myself. Be truthful. And make sure I am also not guilty of the same act even on a small scale.
Forgiveness is hard. Very very hard.
The best thing that can happen is that I get a bang on the head and after the bang forget what the fuss was all about.
Forgetting is the ultimate forgiveness. Everything can start again on a clean slate.
Nothing fits nicely into a box.
We should give up our desire to name and label everything and guess what they are. Nothing is as it seems or what we think it is. We only see what we want to see. We block out many things espiecially the things that are unpleasant.
We should also stop making silly rules about things and grasp on to them.
The universe is in reality empty of names and silly rules. It is neutral. Nothing is about us. Not really.
It is not about right or wrong. Good or bad. It is all about what works or doesn’t.
Note to myself.
1. I should try not recall the event a million times.
2. Don’t imagine things that may happen but does not.
3. Dont over think.
4. Dont over examine.
5. Don’t control and try and make things happen
Easy right? But so very difficult. There are so many layers of conditioning.
Peace is peace. It is without conditions. Just is. A state of mind. It comes when it comes and it goes when it goes. Let it.
In meditation I fell into a state of peacefulness no words can express. It was pure bliss. Since then peace has been my constant companion and my best friend. There when I need it.
The stuff that we put in between ourself and others. Is there anything really there? What is real and what is not?
We project all kinds of things onto people.
What is there is there and what is not is not that is all. Know the difference. There is no gap.
