We are not the mind

Byron Bay love

The mind is talking always, and we are listening to it.
But we don’t have to.
The mind is talking always and we are identifying with it.
But we don’t have to.
When we realize that we are separate from the mind, then we start to awaken.
If not we spend all our lives in an illusion.
The body is.
We are.
But we are not the body.
The mind is.
We are.
But we are not the mind.

I have forgotten

DSCF1471

I have forgotten

what it feels like to have a busy mind,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to never have space in between thoughts,

I have forgotten

how I couldn’t look at things without judging them,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to hear words in my head without pause,

I have forgotten

how I used to be still without any stillness,

I have forgotten

the fear of thinking I could be crazy,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the anxiety of the future,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the memories of the past,

I have forgotten

how I just didn’t know how to live the present.

Now I remember,

And I look around me to all these faces who are still asleep

and oh, I wish I could wake them up

show them the beauty of life

teach them how to stop their minds

and make them feel the peace of Now.

I have forgotten

but I will not forget

to help everyone remember

who they really are.

The beauty of each day

peace

There is beauty in each day.

No matter how hard and difficult our lives get, there are always some pieces of beauty sparsely hidden in each day.

We need to to look for them and try to find at least one a day, because it is in these moments that we remember what life is worth living for.

We can get overwhelmed, tired, scared but in a moment we can find beauty and love and that can be enough to forget everything else.

That can be enough to bring us peace.

That can be enough to make us smile.

What did you find beautiful today?

Self-realisation

cropped-iphone-nov2014-3431.jpg

The ultimate goal is not financial or material success, never was and never will. How much of that can we use once we are dead?
No the ultimate and only aim is self-realisation.

How much we have learned, how we have grown, how we have changed.

It is not what we create outside of us that matters, but what we do with ourselves.
We are our biggest creation.

The meaning of life

IMG_5066

What is the meaning of life?

Is it the incessant quest for a future dream object?

The daily building of a future security?

A working path towards retirement?

The search for the happy ending of ever after?

Or is it more noticing what is already there,

what we already have and don’t really need

what our life is full of but that we hardly see

the joy and the love of the present moment

the life and the laughs of the daily instants

the peace and the beauty of nature events

the happiness that is

right

here

right

now.
