You create your world …and then worry about it.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you are safe, there are friends and family around and you have money on the bank account but you still worry about not having enough in the future to be secure? Have that worry ever done anything good for you or your potential to be safe and secure?
When we strive for goals and objects we ruin the journey and the goal itself is turned into mind dust.
When we gain something we desired it is quickly turned into fear; fear of loosing it, fear of not getting that kick of acquiring again. So we turn to a new goal and strive. …and repeat.
We think possession makes us secure but it is the opposite since we desire them. They make us vulnerable.
The whipped cream on top of the mashed potato
There is usually another dimension added to this; we become addicts desiring desire itself. We desire desire because it provides a pleasant rush, a temporary kick. And as all addictions we get used to one level and need stronger desire – bigger challenges, higher goals, more pressure, bigger toys to feel the rush of desire. That restless strive never stops unless we stop it.
What to do?
What to do to make goals something helpful and not something that creates worry, lack, stress and pressure? How to allow abundance and happiness to become the predominate state of mind?
- See things as they are; things are things and goals are fantasies. And with that insight all is enjoyable in the now not causing lack, or suffering like stress and pressure.
- Have goals and things but don’t create desire for it. Have goals but create no expectations for it. Just do your best in this moment supporting the direction the goal points at. By the way, there will be no other moment for you to do that then now. Or another approach is to dream the goal and then forget about it. Instead trust that your intuition will guide you to receive what you desire.
- Become aware of the sublime inner process when you create desire for desire and stop it with love. Is it possible to feel a pleasurable sensation without creating desire for it? That’s the kind of questions that helps us become free of worry.
- Be present. And in this presence remind yourself of how you have what you need in this moment. See how you are supported in this moment. See things through the glasses of gratitude for while. These perspectives bring us back to truth. You are supported and have what you need in this moment in universe – because you exist.
What is this?
This playful combination of word and image is a purely artistic project inspired by stillness. The text came out of meditation and is combined with artwork or photo from an artist. Our hope is that it will inspire to a small halt of reflection in the otherwise entertainment-heavy stream of pictures at the internet.
