Things can only be as they are, the only way they’ll ever be different is when it’s understood one’s own mind makes them as they are. When this is seen what needs to be different already is.
A person can be intelligent, but that doesn’t make them wise. Wisdom is intuitively known when one understands their own mind. With this understanding wisdom arises and goes beyond the intelligence of thought and until one truly understands their own mind, not much can be different in their life. Not because it’s not wanted, but because for things to be different it has to be understood why they’re the way they are. Nobody just does things because their born that way, mostly it’s because it’s what’s learned. An awakening doesn’t make a person special because its not something that one does, it’s something that occurs. And how one will know that it has occurred is by the awareness that where there was once a mind based to self serve, it’s now a mind based in love. This is very simple to see once it occurs, and by the some token it’s very difficult to see if it doesn’t. But the key to one’s continued expansion is to know the true nature of their own mind.
One day it was revealed to me that at the core of all my issues was my own mind and nothing was ever going to be different in my life if there wasn’t an understanding of this. I had to understand why I didn’t love before I could love and it was this way with everything for me. How can anything be different if it isn’t known why it’s not in that way in the first place? Before peace was experienced in my life I had to find out why I wasn’t at peace. The thing looked for doesn’t have to be attained for one to acquire it. All that’s needed is to be aware of why its not there. Once this occurs than a starting point can be established to begin the process of expanding one’s initial awakening. But for this to occur it needs to be understood.
When one says the world needs to be different it should be understood why it’s the way it is. If a problem arises find out why the problem arose in the first place and there in lies the answer. Things can only be as they are, the only way they’ll ever be different is when it’s understood why they’re as they are. When this happens than what needs to be different already is because of the understanding of one’s own mind.
