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.

Delusional State

Understanding the nature of your delusions is one of the benefits of waking up, but it’s not the world’s delusions that wake you up, it’s the delusions that run your own life…

The delusions that run your life are the delusions that manifest as attachment to your thoughts. The first thought that arises is inconsequential, it’s the attachment to the second thought that forms the delusion. To understand delusion one must be aware of their attachments, desires, confusions, and the way your mind works, without this the dog chasing its tail pattern prevails. Certain practices turns one inward to see this, if what you are doing doesn’t turn you inward you will remain trapped to your delusional state of mind. This is why nothing from the outside truly changes a person because anything from the outside is part of the delusion. A broken mind can’t fix itself and as long as it’s reaching for something on the outside, it remains trying to fix itself and thus it remains broken. Until this truth is seen, things have to stay as they are because nothing is being done to change it.

We can only know what we know if there’s awareness of it. What this means is one has to develop mindfulness of what they are doing as they are doing it so there‘s awareness of what is being done. If you know what you’re doing as you’re doing it it leaves little room for delusion to arise. Mindfulness is probably the single most important discipline to develop as it anchors you in the moment as what is being done occurs. Delusion only occurs when one lives in the story that there’s a past or future; these mind made constructs keeps the delusion alive. The present moment can be seen without making it a story even though it passes as quickly as it arises, but the past and future can never truly be seen without a story, and because few have the discipline to be present, the delusional state of existence remains in place…
