Ever story that has a beginning has an end. It’s inevitable, no matter what.
Beginning and the end – they meet at the same point. Sounds crazy? That’s because it is.
Nothing really happens, apart from the stories happening in my mind. It doesn’t feel that way though. We get so invested in stories that we weave – physically, emotionally, mentally – that it feels real. It has to be, for the sake and for the existence of the illusion.
The more invested we are in the story, the more real it feels, the more real it is. The more infused, the more attached we are to the illusion.
Here’s an opportunity to check where you stand.
What are the areas that get you hooked the most?
Those are your weak spots that keep you away from going free, from being totally free.
It can be attachments, aversions, obsessions, beliefs, habits – anything from work, school, success, health, food, sex, family, children, music, art, relationships, money, fame, sports, spirituality, lifestyle, etc.
What is your drive? Where does your attention flow? Towards entanglement or dissolution? That is the key, because any of those areas above can either be a way out or a way deeper into the matrix.
All the areas are benign on its own. Innocent. It’s us who apply meaning to each area; we are the story writers. The weavers of our reality.
Is the story I have just written offering you a way out or is it locking you further in? It’s that simple.
Use this simple checkmark, every step of the way, with every activity you engage in, to help you understand if you are on your way in or out.
I like this thought, it offers hope – well, at least to me.
I can still have passion for things in life, but my attitude becomes different, my focus is no longer about getting all wrapped in. It’s about taking each opportunity as a lesson, to live and let live. To taste, to experience and to move on (i.e., to be). No stories, no attachments, no aversions. Just like breathing air – breathing in, breathing out, in and out.
The sun simply shines, it never gets involved in any stories. Our minds do. Love is – light as a feather – yet we tend to make it all heavy, complicated. River flows and somehow we like to mess it all up, butt in, interfere with the flow, muddle the waters.
The flowers bloom, the birds sing, the honey tastes sweet. They all are & do what they are meant to be & do. Just like you & me could – and still can. You get the picture?
Life is is an abundant representation of pure energy flow and look what all we’ve managed to achieve.
We reduced it to daily problems, lies, manipulations, dramas, struggles, events of joy or sadness and we marinate there with our presence, fully engrossed – sucked in. We easily forget what life is all about.
Our stories become more relevant than what is – we become most important, so that the illusion can live on. The illusion wins.
The beginning becomes the end.
Try – sometimes – try to let go. See where it takes you… the pure flow.
“All that is gold does not glitter;
not all those who wander are lost;
the old that is strong does not wither;
deep roots are not reached by the frost..”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
