The World is a looking glass, it gives back to every man a true reflection of his own thoughts. We live in a World created by our own thoughts. There is no reality, but a reality created within ourselves.
Rule your mind or it will rule you.
The mind is the place that creates all our attachments. Our attachments then become our mind’s understanding of our World, becomes ou Ego. Our Ego feeds the equation of emotion as a required variable.
When that equation shifts out of balance, it becomes the source of all our pain and suffering in our lives.
The mind is designed to help us figure stuff out as Humans during our time here on Earth. It remembers infromation, it helps define our environment so that we can figure out how to survive within that environment.
When our minds make a definition of something in our World … it takes a pretty serious stance on wanting to prove that definition to be accurate.
The Ego is the mind’s understanding of you. Nothing more. Nothing less.
The Ego is your body, your thoughts, your beliefs, your ideas, your family, your friends and your mindful affiliations. Because of the tendency of the brain and the mind to need to understand and quantify the World it attempts to define you.
There is no point living for the future if you do not know how to live now.
The future is always more powerful than the present. We have a responsibility to ourselves to not let our minds be ruled by fear, doubt, and self-judgement, but rather allow it to be open to Love and your creative potential.
This moment is all you truly have, because happiness is not a destination, but a way of life. The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment.
