Letting Go

Posted by Mac Mani on March 14, 2012 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Letting go never seems easy. This is because we treat "letting go" as another task to do. We've become so enmeshed in the habit of doing that we mistakenly approach letting go in the same way. But you can't "do" letting go-however hard you try. It is our doing that is the problem. To let go we have to cease the "doing" of holding on. Letting go is allowing the mind to relax, accepting the present moment as it is, without resistance or judgement.

 

This is sometimes misinterp...

The Clinging Mind

Posted by Mac Mani on March 14, 2012 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Throughout human history, there have been those who have woken up from the dream that our state of mind depends on what we have or do. They are the rishis, roshis, mystics, saints, lamas and other "wise ones" who have seen through the illusion that, if only we could get the world to be the way want, we would finally be happy. They have each, in their own way, rediscovered the same timeless truth about human consciousness: The mind in its natural state is already at ease.

Samsara

Posted by Mac Mani on March 14, 2012 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Paradoxically, it is our remarkable ability to change our world that has led us into this sorry state. We have fallen into the belief that if we are not at peace, then we must do something about it. We think we need to obtain something we don't yet have, get others to respond as we would like, enjoy a new experience, or, conversely, avoid some circumstance or person that is causing us distress. We assume that, if we could just get our world to be a particular way, we will finally be happy.

Returning To The Natural Mind

Posted by Mac Mani on March 14, 2012 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (0)

As with many great truths, these words resonate with something we know deep down. Beneath all our endeavours, we all want to be at peace, to feel content, fulfilled, at ease. None of us want to be in pain or suffer unnecessarily. We may decide to change jobs, start a new relationship or take up a new hobby because we believe we will be happier. I may choose to go hiking because I expect to get some pleasure from it, a tangible endorphin rush from the exercise, or a feeling of warmth and close...

I'm An Anomaly

Posted by Mac Mani on March 14, 2012 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (0)

An anomaly is any occurrence or object that is strange, unusual, or unique. It can also mean a discrepancy or deviation from an established rule or trend. I do follow some trends but never fully or in the right way. I mean if people are too different they become weird, unaccepted and tossed aside. I do consider myself stubborn as well. I remember when I was young and my mom would say "either eat what I cook or dont eat." I did a lot of not eating. Well the main reason I say anomaly is because...

My Mission Statement

Posted by Mac Mani on March 14, 2012 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I don't know why I feel the way I do, but I am angry. Angry at the world, angry at anyone who questions me and angry at myself and what I have become. By all means I am on track when it comes to succeeding at life but I feel a lingering sense of discontent. There is no explanation for this interpersonal conundrum. I am overwhelmed with anxiety, stress and depression. I am also constantly worried about the future. I think of moving to a different country and starting all over very often, but a...

Film Projector

Posted by Mac Mani on February 5, 2012 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

People without a stable mind find it difficult to function properly. This can cause a person to be deemed as anti-social, selfish, awkward, or even crazy by their fellow peers. Our personalities are a projection of our mind. Imagine your mind as a film projector and your personality as the movie screen.

A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

I believe that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Anyone who chooses not to put there mind to use while they are young, is setting thereself up for failure.
