Your Dreams Are Now

If you truly want to follow your dreams look no further then right now. Unless the mind settles and there’s awareness of this, your dreams will never be realized because you will be caught in the fantasy of something that’s not real…

I know many in society attach to following your dreams, but if this is looked at closely you just may see how this holds you in captivity to thinking that a dream is needed for happiness instead of what’s here now. When you’re following the urge of a so called dream, the reality of what’s happening right now just passes you by. This doesn’t mean you can’t have your dreams and go after them, just realize a dream is nothing more than a fantasy. Even if you get exactly what you want and it becomes your reality, thinking the dream will make you happy is where the fantasy arises from. This falls in line with the grass is greener on the other side, but that grass has to be mowed also.

How many people pick their spouse, their job, the house they live in, having children, or whatever else you thought was needed, only to turn around and complain about it. Your choices are made because you think they’re your dream and yet when they become a reality it’s not long before you realize they’re not as fulfilling as you thought they would be. Or you’re okay with certain aspects of this dream, but there’s just something else to complain about. If you truly want to follow your dreams look down at your feet and realize good, bad, or indifferent you are your dream. Unless the mind settles and you become aware of this, your life will never truly be lived because you will be caught up in the fantasy of needing to follow a made up dream…

Triggered Attachments

Attachments arise when something triggers them. At the root of this is “I” and as long as “I” is in control, the roller coaster of deeply embedded triggered attachments will continue to take you for a ride…

Attachments aren’t something that exist by themselves, they are a movement or reaction to something that occurs. There are many different attachments that arise and they can be put into the associated category to best get a handle on them when they do. They arise because of something that occurs. Nothing inherently makes you attached, there has to be a personal association to something. Attachments only arise as “I” assigns meaning to something. There isn’t much attachment when you hear of a stranger dying, but apply the word Mother, Father, sister, brother, and so on and just watch the attached onslaught.

Attachments don’t exist until “I” grabs hold of something, this is what gives the attachment life and allows it to arise. Example: greed is only a word until you attach “I need or want this” to it, then look out because depending on how deeply “I” attaches to the need or want determines the level of its control. Same thing with joy, something happens and now “I” attaches pleasure to it and therein lies the attachment to joy. Here are just some attachments that can be categorized, fear, anger, sadness, joy, disgust, trust, happiness, to name a few, watch for yourself when these arise and see how the root is from “I”. With awareness of this you just may be able to get a firmer grasp on just how the Conditioned Mind keeps you under its spell by weighing you down and taking you for a ride with deeply embedded triggered attachments…

Just Be and Live

Do whatever it is that you need to do to make life the way you think it should be, but understand it’s in being not doing where life arises from and is truly lived…

Reflect on the most beautiful thing you have ever seen and experienced and see how much it has to do with life right now. It may be a fond memory or a story, but this moment would be exactly the same regardless of what was seen in the past and experienced. At the time even if the experience was breath taking (at least to the Conditioned Mind) it really has nothing to do with what’s happening right now. The story of it does because the conditioning in place makes you think doing not being is needed, but that’s your doing not life’s.

Learning to just be is truly living life because being energy puts you in harmony with the moment and this always is regardless of what you do. This is where many fall short of understanding the true essence of being because doing and not being is put first and is thought to be what’s needed to live life. Life will always be, that is until the day it won’t and all the doing in the world will not stop this from happening. Do whatever it is that you think you need to do, but understand it’s in being no doing where life arises from. When you’re just being, life is lived to the fullest because you don’t have to do. You can never do the next right thing, but you can be the next right thing. This is why it’s said to just be not just do in the bible because to be is the true essence of life. The simple saying “Just Be” can be used as a tool to stop the squirrel cage doing mind in its tracks. After all, we are called human beings and not human doings for a reason and it’s because it’s only in being that life can be truly lived…

Delusional Problems

Everything that’s considered a problem is created by your own conditioned thinking. What these problems equate to is a created delusion that then becomes the reality you live by and pass on to others as fact…

The mind doesn’t become beneficial until you lessen the control it has over you and become the controller of it. It has tremendous problem solving abilities that are second to none, but it’s ability to create problems are also second to none. If you don’t control your mind, your mind will control you; this isn’t a belief in something, this is simply the way it is. Your Conditioned Mind Patterns are so engrained and elusive that the creator of them (our own mind) also creates blocks so you don’t see how they arise. This makes you a prisoner to your own mind with the prison being the mind constantly making problems that don’t truly exist. Just look at your own life to see example after example of this, situations, people (ourselves included), circumstances, etc, the mind makes a problem because life is lived based on the past or future. Another example would be this writing, agree with it, don’t agree with it, pick it a part, who cares, its not that important except to the mind that wants to make it a problem. To a mind that wants to create a problem it is the most important thing in the world.

Written here are words, nothing more nothing less. If they’re a problem to you, it’s only because you have created it. Any problem is a product of your conditioning; no conditioned label, no problem. A noisy mind will not see this because the noise is a creation of the Conditioned Mind; only a settled mind will see this. The other day someone asked how my book was doing, I answered “it doesn’t matter unless it’s made to matter”. Life will always be what it is and because there’s awareness of this I don’t have to make it into something that it’s not. This is true control because what is is always based in truth. The Universe is in charge of life, not the delusional concepts and ideas that are formed by a Conditioned Mind. When this is seen, Universal Truth will be understood because the delusional Conditioned Mind problems will lose their control…
