When thought is used as a base to live by, it’s like always needing to update ones software. When one reaches for something, it’s their own mind telling them it’s outdated and a presumed update is needed.
We each have the same energy given from creation, there is no difference to us in the respect to energy. It’s where that energy is directed that makes all the difference in the world. It determines ones entire life. Attitudes, relationships, health, wealth, and well being, to name a few, when these things arise from stillness it is much different than when one tries to manufacture them. Matter of fact only in stillness will they truly arise and this is where the need to do is negated. If they are manufactured one will have to continually update them, kind of like constantly updating software so the latest version is always in place. But with stillness no update is needed because it is always the latest version. Tomorrow I will write more on this.
Only when one lives in thought it seems updates are needed because the thoughts themselves will tell you this. It is the minds nature to never be satisfied with what is, so it has to look for what isn’t, which in this case would be a needed update. Here’s an example, when a spouse cheats, it’s strictly because it has been determined an update is needed. It is strictly from one’s human side that this arises from. It’s not a true need, but to one’s conditioned mind it is.
But it’s not real because if one were living as a spiritual being this human update wouldn’t never arise. It is this way with all things, one only reaches for outside things to update what is thought to be missing. If it wasn’t thought to be missing an update wouldn’t be needed. So look at why you think you need an update when it arises. Understand the spiritual you and leave the updates to those who only know how to live by being human. Though it’s not that we all aren’t human, but when one puts spirituality first, our humanness has experiences not updates.
