Anytime something is done that’s not beneficial to life, it’s one’s own mind that makes this so. One can say “I shouldn’t have done that” but how can you not do what your own mind tells you.
I know it’s not always easy to see life as the gift that it is, but there are reasons for this. It’s not to deny that sometimes unpleasant things happen, but who makes the thing unpleasant and who does the unpleasantness happen to? Although the human form exist, it’s not in the realm that it appears, it’s the mind that likes to use logic that needs things to make sense. The logic mind has to have an answer for everything and if it doesn’t it will go round and round until it either finds one or makes one up. Life isn’t about having all the answers, or even needing all the answers, but the way our minds have been conditioned that’s exactly what we make it all about. Attaining, accomplishing, achieving, all to satisfy a self that is never satisfied. No wonder our world is in the way that it is.
Our life is one continuous journey, Our mind has been conditioned to make up all kinds of nonsense to avoid seeing this. It uses time to make us believe life needs to be broken up into segments, but what time is really needed for is to keep track of things. Here and Now is where life occurs no matter what time it is or what’s going on. And understand as you are in one of these created segments, waiting for this or that to occur so the mind can make life logically complete, it is passing you by.
Life can never be any more complete then it is right now, except to a mind that has been conditioned to be everywhere but here. And although we think we have developed a logical mind there really isn’t any logic to it. Until this is understood it controls the show. Think of this, anytime you do something that isn’t beneficial to you, your own mind is making you do it. This is something that needs to be realized if one is to truly live life and not wait for it to be perfectly logical (only in our mind) to enjoy the temporary gift of life that we have been blessed with.
