The road inwards
Each man’s life is really a road towards himself, and it is in dealing with himself that he discovers that every experience in the world emerges from himself. The way he chooses to think and feel about the breakups, about the loss of his house, about the poverty he experiences, and about everything else entirely is the key to his failure or success.
Because when we meet a person we love or hate, or when we think that we are valued or not valued, or when we feel that we can or cannot do this, or whatever it is, there lies our bias. The mindset we have. The attachment to that mindset. Because it’s all about the content of our minds and the perspective we choose to see and experience from something lived.
It is these brains we have, they compartmentalize everything. So, if you attach yourself to anything, and it is then not what you expected, you start believing that it is not you but them. But if you become self-aware, you realize that you are indeed your best friend and also your worst enemy. You just didn’t know it before because you were too self-involved.
You are alone in the world, and yet you attach the way you think and feel to others. It is their brains, that confuse people who are not aware, which, sadly, it is most people in the world. So, in living life, do not remain attached to mindsets. Whatever these mindsets are, you can never know the truth of yourself and of life through them.
Let it go
Mindsets are like groups in society. They will enslave you without your knowledge. They will become bias to your thinking and feeling. They won’t allow you to remain open-minded to all there is to understand in life. They will put you in a box and limit the way you see that life. You can’t really expand your awareness like this.
Only in letting go from the attachment to your own mind you can discover happiness. Or you can be like most people, chase money and more knowledge, and more relationships and goals, and more beauty and popularity, and this and that, and then end up frustrated and confused because happiness escapes you. But whatever you choose to do, always remind yourself that it’s all you.
