Anytime somethings done that’s not beneficial to life, it’s one’s ego 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 a gift, but there are reasons for this, it’s not to deny that sometimes unpleasant or horrific things happen, but who labels the thing unpleasant and who does the unpleasantness happen to? Although the human form does exist, it doesn’t exist in the way that it appears, it’s the egos logic that puts a label on things so it makes sense. The logic of the ego has to have an answer for everything and if it doesn’t it will go searching 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 ego has been conditioned, that’s exactly what we make it all about. Attaining, accomplishing, achieving, all to satisfy an ego that is never satisfied. No wonder why our world is the way that it is.
Life is continuous, our ego has been conditioned to make up all kinds of nonsense to avoid seeing this. It uses time to make one believe life needs to be broken up in time slots, but what time is really needed for, is to keep track of things. The Here and Now is where life always occurs no matter what time it is or what’s going on, but understand, as you’re in one of these created time slots, waiting for this or that to occur so the logic of the ego can make it seem as though life is complete, it’s passing you by.
Life can never be any more complete then it is right now, except to an ego that has been conditioned to be everywhere except here, and although our ego has made us think we have developed a logical mind, there really isn’t any logic to it; until this is understood the ego controls the show. Think of this, anytime you do something that isn’t beneficial to you, your ego 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 to the ego) to enjoy the temporary gift of life that we have been blessed with.
