Ego drops dead at my feet -- crazy talk about a mad world
What a crazy time!
If I ever knew that unemployed people were so busy and so stressed I would have stayed employed, lol!
Are people ever free of stress?
Perhaps it's just a human condition that's like the air we breathe, part of the whole deal?
I think I've finally realized something, that as long as you are human, no matter how rich how poor, how young how old, how ugly how beautiful, with or without partner, with or without children, with or without a job.... rarely a single living breathing person is without something that eats at them, also known as stress.
But it is so peculiar.....
I was stressed out about my job so I left it...
then I got stressed because I don't have a job...
then I got another job and started stressing about the hours, the pay, the treatment, about getting on with new colleagues...
I was depressed because I was without a partner to love and to be loved,
then I found a partner,
then I get depressed because he couldn't love me right,
so I left him and then get depressed about it's just impossible to meet someone new...
it just goes on and on and on....
it never stops...
it's like that white lab mouse on the spinning wheel...
it runs and runs and runs and the wheel spins and spins and spins and goes....NOWHERE.
But I want it to stop.
no I don't mean stop living, just stop living like a white mouse in the spinning wheel....
the white mouse,
it ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and ran.....
then, epiphany struke!
Oh My God!
the white mouse actually stopped running and stood still....
it took a good look at the silly little cage it was in,
stepped off the stupid wheel,
opened the cage door,
and walked out!
no I am not walking out physically of my earthly cage,
not yet anyway, not until my timer starts beeping and my jailer opens the gate.
I am just quitting this pointless emotional game,
right here and now.
this invisible spinning wheel of endless stress and worry and dissatisfaction.
The human being only has one problem,
that he can never be satisfied.
"Things can always be better;
there can always be more money, more this or more that..."
THAT one little defect causes the entire human DRAMA that never ends,
the one single seed that grew into the gigantic Maya, Illusion!
one became completely satisfied NO MATTER his condition, his situation?
one entered into BLISS no matter his circumstances?
Feel completely fulfilled NOW no matter what your life might say otherwise.
(It would alwayse say otherwise for it's programed as such)
When you can do this,
Ego dies right at your feet.
Then, it will be all very quiet indeed.
There will no longer be any noise in your head,
telling you something or someone (most probably yourself) is just not goodenough.
All is quiet,
For the Ego is dead.
And Maya is dead.
The world is no more.
Do that thing you wanna do,
Say that thing you wanna say,
Face that thing that's right in front of you,
and feel no turmoil.
It is ok.
It is always ok.
You will always be ok.
For God has you;
HE always has.
