Reaching Crutch

Reaching is like wishing 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 reaching for the present moment to be different…

Many people think reaching is something that’s needed, but it’s used strictly as a crutch by the Conditioned Mind and it keeps you from not 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 future. The Conditioned Mind does this by telling you the present moment isn’t good enough and it needs to be different. 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; so it will be a life of suffering or one of contentment. Even if what is reached for is attainable, it won’t last, especially when it’s from the surface. Inward there is a slight better chance for it to have a lasting affect, but this is only if one is awake enough to see this.

Let’s say you’re diagnosed with some kind of illness, the only thing reaching 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’s reached for. If your life isn’t needed 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. This is because right now is the only place of true existence so it’s important to see this, not in the future, but right now because right now doesn’t need to be reached for because it already exist…
