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.

Treadmill Chase

The belief that the next thing attained will make you complete is what keeps you in the mode of the never ending treadmill chase. But it can stop if it’s realized you can get off the treadmill because you’re already complete…

There will be completeness when this happens next, the next fix, the next satisfaction, or the next whatever is used as the treadmill chase. What’s next goes on to infinity, it never ends until it’s realized there is no end and one will always be on the treadmill chasing that which is already here; who is the chaser and why all this chasing. Either there’s completeness now with the way things are or there isn’t. You may think chasing the next whatever will bring utopia, but it never ends because there’s nothing to truly attain that ends the treadmill chase. The Conditioned Mind will tell you different and that’s why there’s chasing, but what you really need to ask yourself is who is on the treadmill doing the chasing and why. The fictional character of self that’s been made up to think things need to be a certain way for completeness is just that, fictional and this is why there’s the never ending treadmill chase.

The self that makes up this nonsense that you’re incomplete is just a story of incompleteness; this is what keeps you on the treadmill. The dream of attaining a certain status, the next promotion, the trophy partner, the next book, the next, the next, the next, whatever keeps you in the never ending mode of the treadmill chase. A chase that will either end because this is realized or because life in this forms ends. The treadmill chase will end one day. How it ends will be determined by if you spend your entire life treadmill chasing after that which is already here or if you get off the treadmill because it’s realized you‘re already complete…
