A Storied Crutch

A story is a crutch used to wish your life away as it keeps you from experiencing the present moment. It’s used as a crutch because what’s occurring right now is always what’s here as opposed to a story of needing the present moment different…

Many people think a story is something that’s needed, but it’s used strictly as a crutch by the Conditioned Mind and it keeps you from understanding what it means to be in the present moment. It’s a direct cause of suffering as it makes you believe it’s something that’s needed by making you live life in the past or future. How the Conditioned Mind does this is by creating a story that the present moment isn’t good enough and it needs to be different if you want to be happy. It projects a lie that things would be better if they were in some other way and maybe on the surface they would be, but inward is where one derives the perception that makes life what it is; life will be of suffering or of contentment. Even if the story of what is created comes true, it won’t last especially when it’s on the surface. Inward there is a slight better chance for it to have a lasting affect, but this is only if you’re awake enough to not create a story.

Let’s say you’re diagnosed with some kind of illness, the only thing a story does is it makes you wish the diagnoses was different, but it doesn’t change the fact of what is occurring right now. The illness remains regardless of what story is created. If your life isn’t storied to be different and it’s accepted as it is, you will experience the peace of the present moment and this is regardless of what’s occurring. By the way, the present is where all stories and wishes come true because it’s the only place that truly exists. So my story for all beings is that this is seen, not in the future, but right now because right now doesn’t need a story as it exist without one…
