Happy New You!
Most of us believe the human condition is to struggle; and it often seems that way. That's because most us of are unaware of the reality of our lives.
Try to Imagine that we are in a Matrix, (like the film) one designed by our thoughts and the global thoughts of people throughout history...
And then imagine that you could 'wake up' and break through the web of mental confusion and limitations which drive us to feel empty, and to always need more. We all have thought patterns that determine the outcome of situations, and we live within 'time-frames' either from the past, or projected to a future.. when we can eventually be, or once was... 'happy'.
But, the past and the future don't exist! I mean REALLY DON'T EXIST! (Yeah, yeah... heard it before), I used to think that myself until I had an 'awakening' which blew my mind. It is in stillness and presence that you find everything you long for, need, want or desire IS YOU...right now... AND THE LIFE YOU ARE is perfection.
We give many reasons for our dissatisfaction: Perhaps we miss someone, or some place or some thing. We want more money, prestige, possessions, control. We tell ourselves that we will be happy if/when a certain set of circumstances become our reality (a raise at work, new job, car, relationship the relationship etc).
But if we can really grasp that neither the past nor the future exist and open our eyes, the "Here and Now" is spectacular exactly how it is. So why do we spend so much time in the 'waiting room' of life?
Because we don't yet see or can't yet hear the truth...its skimmed over..too simple and easy to obtain, so therefore can't possible be worth our time...We analyze, philosophize, judge, with our ego identities blocking the way!
We are conditioned to struggle for more.. or to feel superior or inferior...that joy, peace, bliss has to be worked for. This isn't the truth. Our thoughts are lies that limit us and keep us waiting...
Time is only an illusion and a place to structure events. There will only ever be the "Here and Now" for you to enjoy. We need to wake up from the sleepwalking! We are dreaming what our mind tells us is real, but its a web (Matrix) and the good news is YOU CAN GET OUT OF IT ANY TIME YOU CHOSE.
Regardless of your current circumstance, look around you, not with eyes that judge or a heart and mind that has prejudice... but with wonder, like that of a small child. Wake Up! Free yourself. Happiness is within your reach right now...Happy New You!
