Well as usual I write and post now and then and then again, and if a subject sparks my interest all hell breaks lose and I get myself into trouble. I love that. Anyway...I've written it before, and it's all in my WHY HUMANS ARE NUTS book, and written in a nicer way in my THE POWER IN THANK YOU BOOKLET, but here's the short version of HOW TO ENJOY ALL THAT IS LIFE not only in spite of life doing its thing but because of life doing its thing. nem
I Keep my mind silent unless, like a tool, I consciously need or want to use it.
No biases, prejudices, ďbeliefs,Ē ďfaith,Ē judgements, opinions, conclusions.
I use belief and faith as tools to prove a thing, not as the thing.
I know how, and the way, life works, how itís structured. Life will not always meet MY expectations. I donít need life to meet my expectations.
Life doesnít have to go my way.
Iím good with life and people doing things their way.
I donít mind what life and people do. Life and people are entertaining, humorous.
I have no likes or dislikes.
I have no physical, mental or emotional needs wants or desires that must be met.
I am not identified, attached or entangled with people, places and things.
I am not identified, attached or entangled with whatever I am or am not.
I do what I do and expect the best and am at peace with the rest, regardless of the outcome.
I try to not get sick, injured, hurt or dead, but if those happen, Iím good with them.
I look at life as a play, a movie, a video game, a game, an adventure, a challenge.
I take nothing seriously.
I take nothing personally.
I have no ego to defend. I know itís a nut. Not going to defend the nut.
I call success being pleasant inside no matter how unpleasant outside.
I have the power to be and do what I want to do, and everyone else has the same power, so I know everyone is who they are, and do what they do, and thatís life.
If I do things well they tend to turn out well.
I can only have so much information before I make a decision (so thereís always some ignorance) and realize I may make a decision that does not produce the results I was after. Thus it is, and itís OK.
I know change is constant and Iím good with that.
I donít kick against the pricks of reality that I cannot influence or change. Reality is just fine the way it is. I donít mind it doing its thing.
Nature does what it does and human nature does what it does, and thatís life, and I give it no mind, or another way to say it, whatever nature and human nature does, I donít mind (though I try to make life pleasant for myself and others...itís just that if I fail to make life pleasant, itís OK.....because that is what is).
I donít need people to like me. I do not care about their opinions of me. The opinions of others about me, reveal them, not me.
I recognize culture and society for what it is, and I choose what to be involved in, and I do those things I must be involved in to live a pleasant life. I donít fight the inevitable.
When something has happened it canít be changed. I have a pleasant attitude about it.
I do not respect nor disrespect anyone. The power, wealth, glory, education, biases, prejudices, judgements, opinions and conclusions of others is their problem (though I do engage people when teaching, or for entertainment, or just because).
I live on two levels. Level one is practical when dealing with life. Level two, no thoughts when not dealing with life, or another way to say it, life is life and I give it no mind or do not mind what it does, and I do not complain, moan, groan or bitch, do not get irritated, upset, angry or unpleasant inside when nature, or the nature of man, does what they do.
Life is what it is; life does what it does and I deal with it practically, as well as I am able, and, however things turn out, I am at peace with it, I deal with it, get it over it and move on.
I live in the present, not the past, not the future. My mind is blank, is not engaged, is silent unless needed for practical in-the-moment use.
I feel the pain of others
(though it is their pain because they are physically, mentally or emotionally identified, entangled or attached to fulfilling their needs, wants or desires, their expectations, because of their indoctrination, programming, brainwashing and exploitation, and thus have beliefs, faith, biases, prejudices, opinions, make judgements and draw conclusions because of their ignoranceĖbecaise they have likes and dislikes and need life to happen their way) thus I treat them as lovingly, good-heartedly and kindly as they need (but not to their detriment, injury or harmĖI treat them as kindly as they allow) always for their ultimate benefit and welfare.
WHATEVER NATURE DOES
THE NATURE OF MAN DOES
(that is beyond my control)
I GIVE IT NO MIND
I DO NOT MIND.
