No Real Struggle

The only time there’s a struggle with life is when it’s made to be a struggle, this only occurs when the Conditioned Mind is in control. The mind will settle when the quality of acceptance is developed…

Your struggles are neither with life nor with people or circumstances so who does that leave you with but yourself, this is who the struggle is always with. I’m not saying that some of the things that happen are easy to accept, but the struggle is still within yourself. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem like life is fair, that it shouldn’t be so difficult, but again this struggle is only because of your view, not because of life. The view (conditioning) of how things are is what causes you to struggle as it’s simply what goes on between you ears, this is where any so called struggles manifest. There’s a need to allow the mind to be present so it can settle down and focus on what is actually occurring instead of creating a struggle.

At times it’s as if there’s one thing after another, but there really isn’t, it’s just the Conditioned Mind making up a story. Each moment is independent of itself so it has nothing to do with any other moment unless it’s made so. When this is understood tools can be developed so this happens less and less. Peace is directly linked to how much control your conditioning has over you. If there wasn’t conditioning you wouldn’t be controlled and there would be total peace. For me this is the path I must learn to stay on and head in the direction of peace. Peace is already there, but it’s needed to learn not to allow the Conditioned Mind to block it from your view. The more the view is in the present moment, the more peace there is because the view to peace isn’t being blocked. The only reason life is ever a struggle is because it’s allowed. It’s up to you to change the conditioning that blocks you from understanding you’re already at peace and the key to this is to see that life really isn’t the struggle that the Conditioned Mind makes it out to be…
