    Spirituality and Reality

    Post  grpauls on Mon Dec 15, 2014 11:55 am

    The truth of the matter is that the wall between reality and spirituality is totally nonexistent. The mind brings about this separation, so always be watchful for your mind sometimes can run out of control if you allow it. Always never forget to stop….step back…watch your actions prior and after any situation or circumstance, ask yourself why you made those choices and decisions and you shall see why you either failed or succeeded.

    Do not base your plans upon present situations or circumstances, since these are brought about fear and anxiety, rather, based your plans on the future and the universe will work round to ensure it delivers the true tangible results, only this is the true path to take.

    I view that the future cannot be known so, to base plans on this, seems a little unstable.
    My focus is on the here and now, life as it unfolds and my plans are, as such, minimal.
    If you are in harmony, accepting then trusting that nature will provide serves well in
    many situations (obviously not on more practical matters).

    It's an interesting point of view but one can not assume that what works for you personally will automatically apply to others; we each are on our individual journeys with personal paths that are to be followed.

    All present situations or circumstances are clouds of negativity brought about as a result of the minds recording and survival abilities so If you base your plans on what you are going through right now, you are basing your plans on the clouds, and we know that these clouds come and go depending on the depth of attachment.

    But the choice is up to you to either decide you will operate under a great imagined future or you will operate under what you see or hear. The choice is yours on this matter.

    The present is negative?  Huh?  I have to disagree!  There is more to the present than making plans.  How we experience
    the 'now' is based on our reactions and mindsets which, as you say, is about our choices.  I have a positive mindset.

    All bad situations and circumstances (the word bad got omitted by error).....But......whichever way you choose to understand the statement as long as the right positivity and inspiration is achieved, you can. :)

    Yep one great fat mushroom, and we all know the best way to feed a mushroom? Keep it in the dark and feed it bullsh*t.

    Of course the now is what forms us. We have to take the now and work with it, we can't ignore it. It is.

    The point of power is in the now.

    It's easy to say 'focus on the future' to make plans but the future is always uncertain. What if someone focused on having a successful career as a lawyer in a few years time only to become disabled, sick or die?

    I respect people have different views but my understanding is that the present moment is the only power we have for it is the only reality. Tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. It exists only as a concept. It may not ever exist if the person thinking about it were to tragically die. Today is all we really have.
