This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Treadmill Path

As long as there is seeking there will always be seeking and one will remain on the treadmill path exerting all kinds of energy, but not really getting anywhere.

What keeps a person stuck on the treadmill path of seeking is trying to manufacture peace, love, kindness, mindfulness, spirituality, and so on, instead of aligning oneself through discipline with the present moment which allows these attributes to arise naturally. This is what keeps the treadmill energy in place. The energy of this seeking is circular (like a dog chasing its tail) so it’s never going to produce anything that’s going to get you off the treadmill. You may bounce to a seemingly different path because it’s given a different label, but as long as one thinks they have to do something to manufacture a certain desired result, running in place will continue regardless of what it’s called and so you will remain on the treadmill path.

This seeking of desired results makes a person use an an array of things, from sweets, drugs, alcohol, gambling, tv, success, sex, programs, another book, retreat, a path, meditation, and many other things. What these all have in common is they keep you engrained to the treadmill path of seeking which is attached to by the Conditioned Mind. A true transformation of the spirit cannot be manufactured. Repeat: A true transformation of the spirit cannot be manufactured. This is because seeking energy is the exact energy that blocks the alignment which allows energy to transform. Only when you get off the treadmill path can a transformation or shift occur. As long as there is seeking there will always be seeking and you will remain on the treadmill path exerting all kinds of energy, but not really getting anywhere.
