Although it’s not surprising why one would create a so called comfort zone because who doesn’t like comfort, the question to ask, is it truly a benefit to live life from here?
What is used for comfort most of the time doesn’t really provide the comfort that’s sought. In fact the things used for comfort actually keeps the discomfort in place. One’s comfort zone only seems comfortable, what it does is keep one entrapped to the Conditioned Mind. The real question to ask yourself is can you get beyond the story that has been created to keep you in your so called comfort zone. And although it’s not surprising why it was created because who doesn’t like comfort, is it truly beneficial to live life from here?
The mind is constantly using and developing tools to try and stay in this zone even at the point of one’s own destruction. Just look around and see the some of the things that are used to keep one in their comfort zone. Drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, tobacco products, politics, education, 12 step programs, helping others, self help books, volunteering, giving old clothes, cheating on a spouse, talking about others, religion, church, spirituality, working out excessively, dieting and on and on, feel free to add your own. Some of these have benefits associated with them, but they lose their worth when used exclusively to be smug in one’s comfort.
There’s nothing wrong with taking comfort in life and enjoying it, but the understanding that one doesn’t need anything to be in a comfort zone makes it’s creation unnecessary. When one is in this state of not needing a made up comfort zone, life can be lived as it occurs and regardless of what that occurrence is, one will be in their comfort zone. This will then be the energy that one lives their life by and emits out to others.
