People tend to find cures, love, fame, success, by accident. Your car breaks down and someone stops to help you, suddenly you’ve met the love of your life. You find a rock, keep it as a pet, the idea to sales. you makes millions, food is left out and Penicillin is discovered and saves millions of lives. Many of our most important discoveries were found accidentally. Discoveries just presented themselves, and the person that discovered it was just present enough to notice it. Be in the now be present and see what you … notice.
At First Sight
Like the infant using a past experience might turn into that small child stomping their feet demanding their parents to give them what they want.
With the ego saying “yes I need help here, how dare you not give me what I need’. ‘I can’t do this on my own” and the parent’s ego agrees, “yes I should do everything for this child, This child is my child, different from, your child”. And the ego is pasted down like a bad gene.
We start to compare our parenting skills to our own parents; ” My parents didn’t ever help me, I had it tough, if my parents had stayed together, if my parents loved me.”, And your ego tells you yes’,” I’m a better parent then my parents were”. Most of us were un- taught to be present held captive by our parents, brain washed and given an ego. and some may never get back to presence, until they are close to death. They say that most kids by age 8 have already developed the ego,and lost their awareness of the now, they no longer look at the world the same; they may start to judge, and label. They start to develop their stories; “I shouldn’t be treated like this, she’s is ugly, I am ugly, I need, I don’t have, I want, they don’t like me, I am this way because…. , I have a right!… I have an illness, my parents are divorced, it’s my teachers fault, I am better then you”.
We came in this world with presences and will leave with presences.
Imagine seeing life with such presence, it’s like seeing everything for the first time but with, the practical knowledge needed to faction. Being focused makes people feel alive; it brings them peace, everything starts to align in their life. It’s almost magic. We suddenly know what to do, where to go, and life start to line up for you. Without focus without being conscious, we never fully become ourselves. The Bible says an eye for an eye, what you put out, you get back, negative energy out, negative results back. Thinking is energy. positive thinking leads to positive results, but above thinking is a place where awareness lives , it’s like an open socket, that’s who we are, a place where the false self/ ego cannot survive. This is the place where we find peace and comfort. this place is presence. This place we are born with but may lose sight of .
How being… success works
Life is a paradox, you sometimes need to be blind to see, to live is to know death, to be in control of your life is to let life be as it is, to win the fight is to surrender, to listen so carefully, so intentional, you can feel the sound, that! is to truly hear. When you let life flow… you let amazing things happen, Life has no social status, anyone can see the sound, and anyone can find the question to the answer, complicated but is so simple.
Life struggles are easy without ego
Have you ever watched an infant, lying on the floor, rocking, wiggling using every muscle in their body just to move two inches to a toy,. We believe life is hard we don’t want to see them struggle. But if we take a close look we notice that the first time you seen them struggling toward a toy you moved the toy a little closer .This may be the beginning of the ego, The ego us parents start to develop in our children, that ego that later YELLS AND STOMPS THIER FEET “Hey! …How dare them! Not give me what I reach for.” It’s only after we interfere with life, after moving the toy toward them, that they learn frustration; without inference they simply wiggle make grunting sounds, smile, and possibly fall asleep.
The child feels they have all the time in the world they have no concerns of how long it takes to get the toy they are not trying to race the child next store.
They have no expectation of what the toy is. they’re simply enjoying the journey with the passion to move. When they finely reach their toy they are grateful.
When our children are born, we need to do everything for them, feed them, change them, burp them. Teaching them everything . However Its our own thinking, passed down from generation to generation. So we assume reaching for that toy must be frustrating, They must be in a hurry Right!? I mean who would want to be here! when they can be there!?.
God said I made you in my image
Perhaps we have had a few toys pushed towards us. Maybe those toys have turned in to cars, houses, relationships, Perhaps our own ego wants to say’ life How dare you not give me what I reach for’. And we cry and stomp our feet with frustration. that’s the ego… that voice in the head… the voice that says “life! owes me this”.
The things we achieve without ego are the only things that will make us truly happy.
When we learn that… and that is a hard one to learn, we will learn true gratitude, appreciation for life, and with that gratitude and appreciation we long to give, and with longing to give we can learn to receive with grace.
Knowing… we’ll always have enough, No fear of abandonment, frustration, no worry of losing.
Tomorrow never comes… when you wake up its going to still be today! enjoy the journey and easy task of wiggling, making some grunting sounds, and smiling .
What is the intention of your journey
