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.

Space of Now

There’s no suffering in the space of Now because Now has no attachment so being aware of one’s “I” attachment and not holding onto it allows what’s in front of you to be the guiding light of your life…

The struggle one has with life is strictly mind based and it’s because there’s nothing solid to hold onto. Life being mind based is equivalent to building a house on sand and we all know what happens when the first storm comes. Way to often mind based information is held onto which keeps one entrapped to the mind. I know how deeply ingrained the conditioning is and I know sometimes I may come on strong, but it’s only because something is seen and it simply can’t be ignore it.

There are basically two kinds of energy that guide the direction of the mind. One is of suffering, the other is of non suffering and these energies manifest in many way. The core of suffering is attachment to “I” (selfishness), this energy manifest as greed, envy, anger, pride, desire, doubt, restlessness, regret and so on. You can see how this will cause suffering; if this is the direction of the mind, there will be suffering. The other force is the space of Now which manifest as kindness, generosity, compassion, empathy, understanding, stillness, and so on, I’m sure you can see how these will not cause suffering. Make no mistake though you will still encounter the possibility of suffering even with the direction of Now because of how ingrained the conditioning is; if attachment to “I” isn’t in place, suffering won’t be in place. The key is being aware of “I” attachment and not holding onto it because without it the energy that guides the direction of your life will be from what’s in front of you and there’s no suffering in this space because there’s no attachment…
