Inspiring words are nice, but you can’t control your thoughts and you can’t force yourself to feel what you don’t. It is enough to simply observe your thoughts and to feel your feelings.
You can just observe your thoughts and emotions in a detached way, from the perspective of the observer—as consciousness itself. You are not your thoughts; rather, the one observing your mind. When you feel fear, worry, tension, confusion—you can try to just notice it, smile at it, or shake your head at it. None of it is real. This is only the conditioned, “educated” mind doing what it does.
In this mad world, we all have negative thoughts and feelings from time to time. False positivity is dishonest and unhelpful. No solution or progress is possible absent of honesty and truth.
Healing is the recognition of the truth in things. We can accept it and see it for what it is. This is a gradual process of undoing, and there is so much that must be undone. We can remove the errors, the illusions, the confusion—end the madness of all the world by honestly looking at it.
The way isn’t easy, but it is the only way now. We can try to resist for a little longer, but ultimately there is no path forward other than love. Love is impossible absent of honesty and truth, and inevitable with it.
This is for the few who are willing to trade suffering and drama for healing and joy.
