So you grew up in a nice family or a not so nice family, then you had a nice childhood or not so nice, then you had relationships, jobs, money, kids, (Nice or not so nice) became older, had diseases, watched TV, went to Disney World, etc. … then “You” die.
Everyone more or less will go to the same experiences, but some will make “big traumas” out of those experiences, thus; those experiences will be felt with greater strength.
Lighten up! Don’t take it seriously… It is just a game.
All your beliefs go with you. All your dramas go with you. All your needs and wants. Paradoxically, all of that stuff gets released when “you” are no longer there.
That is one of the main teachings that Life has for “us.”
When “you are,” you have. When “you” are not, then you don’t.
Some say that it is “better” to pretend not to have all of the above experiences while being “alive.” The paradox is that by doing that, “you” are anything but “alive” even while living.
Every one of us has a mission in Life. We could observe those things that are happening to us from different viewpoints, take any perspective… Just don’t hurt yourself.
But if you do, that ain’t bad. It is a learning experience.
At the end whether you go left or right, you will end up in the same place… just like everyone else. (Like my rhyme?)
Do you see that? No? Oh… “Your” belief will “save” you. I see. The “I” must continue.
Life is such an interesting experience!
“You” are exactly right now, where you wanted to be.
Nevertheless, your experience as it is right now, is exactly what is needed for the Totality, the Universe.
Experiences do not last forever and every experience has the potential to change our consciousness one bit at the time.
When the “I” feels overwhelmed by uncertainty, by an emotional sensation while singing in the back of our minds: “I can’t get no satisfaction,” it is at that point where the door of not being that “I” may open.
Are you scared? Are you afraid to open that door?
Who is afraid?
Find that one. Get to know that one, to be free from that one.
You see, we have been taught to avoid “bad company.”
That is childish. As you are, so your company will be.
Start by hanging out with “you.” Get to know that “I.”
“But …why bother with that?”
So, “it” cannot be.
Do you know what is like to be alone? 🙂
That is to know the one, who does not allow you not to be.
Just like Life. A riddle made to be remembered, until we forget. 🙂
