Excerpt from It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts – pg. 109
Have you ever heard the phrase, “Wear the world like a loose garment.” If I want, I can be free and not be controlled by my Conditioned Mind Patterns, but I have to learn to let go of them and live life from a place of peace.
You may experience periods where there is a semblance of peace in life, but once certain conditions arise, BAM — you are drawn in and your peace is gone. Just like that. So where is this so-called control you think you have in your life? What happened to your peace? Did you decide it was time not to be at peace anymore? You were just at peace, and now you are not. Once the drama begins, the ego takes over, and the are up has to run its course until the ego has had its ll. If the conditioning has a lot of history attached to it, its ll can last a long time and end up anywhere.
Many people end up in jail, have car accidents, etc. whatever form the conditioning takes on produces so many problem. So many tragic things happen when this occurs, and it can all be avoided if you take the time and learn to “Wear the world like a loose garment”. Take the time to understand it is just a Conditioned Mind Pattern that was activated and all it did was run its course. You were just along for the ride.
