One can only do what they’re conditioned to do, so whatever nonsense is made up in the head about doing the next right thing, it doesn’t always coincide with what the next right thing truly is.
One thing must be understood if one is to get beyond their limiting conditioning and that’s understanding how it’s in control. If we just go through life with the notion that if we just keep doing what we think the next right thing is and that our life will work out, we won’t get beyond our limited conditioning to see if what we are making the next right thing to do is truly what we should be doing. Our struggle with life is between what we have been conditioned to think is the next right thing and if its actually the next right thing to do. You see, most of the time the next right thing to do is nothing but to be still, but that’s not what a Conditioned Mind leads one to believe needs to be done. Matter of fact its just the opposite, it tells one something is needed to be done; being still is usually not an option.
The Conditioned Mind will always tell you that there’s a next right thing to do, but think of all the next rights things you’ve done and did it lead to the inner contentment that you were urged to search for? And if it doesn’t lead to contentment then why was it done? It’s one’s own inner discontentment that causes the need for there to always be a next right thing to do. It’s driven by the urge to be content, and when that’s fulfilled the next right thing to do won’t be needed to be done, but the Conditioned Mind tells you that doing the next right thing is always needed. You will stop needing to do the next right thing when it’s understood the next right thing has already been done, regardless of what is done. We can only do what we are conditioned to do, so whatever nonsense is made up in our head about doing the next right thing, it doesn’t always coincide with what’s truly needed to be done.
If you don’t think this is true, when will the next right thing be enough so you don’t have to do the next right thing anymore? It will never be enough because of the conditioning to have to do and not to be still. You will never do enough for the next right thing to be enough, but when you can be still it is then that you will have done enough to be content. We do what we do and limit ourself because of our conditioning and until this is truly understood, one will be urged to keep searching for the limited mind made next right thing to do because of the discontentment thats making it have to be done. And it’s only occurring because there isn’t contentment with just being still with what’s here so the mind has to create what it thinks is the next right thing to do.
