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.

Expanding Your Space

To live your life to the fullest is to be aware of each moment as it is. In each moment you can at least relinquish some control of the Conditioned Mind by being aware of space of what’s truly occurring…

It’s amazing how quickly the days go by. It seems like it’s the morning and before you know it it’s nighttime. All the stuff that goes on in between just seems like a blur, and one day just like that when conditions don’t support life anymore, it’s over. On most gravestones there’s usually the date life begins and the date life ends, in between those dates there’s a small space which is our life. Much occurs in between those dates, but it goes so fast; the small space is the sum total of what occurs.

The question is how can we slow down life? I don’t really think this is possible, but there can be more awareness of what’s truly going on. The more awareness there is the better chance there is of living life to the fullest. Maybe we can expand our space to be more in line with something like this ( ) instead of this ( ). To me it seems the more awareness I have of my emotional state the less life controls me and the less I think about how fast it goes by. Emotions are tied into the state of being and the state of being is tied into how quickly it seems life goes by. When emotions are stable so is one’s state of being. And with a stable state of being there’s more awareness of space. Life goes by regardless of one’s state of being, but at least it will seem to go a little slower when there’s awareness of what’s occurring as opposed to living in a state of unconsciousness. In a state of unconsciousness, by the time that you awaken it may be to late to expand your space because the day that life ends my not be far behind…
