CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY
Contemplating the process of observing thoughts during meditation, how trains of thought can take us for a ride that we seemingly can’t get off. It’s not until we take the time to observe the mind like this that we identify that this is how we think. All. Day. Long.
I had achieved the goals that previous generations had set as our societal benchmark for success, but within was the feeling that something was missing. I felt like there was an implied amount happiness I would have when I got ‘there’ but I was ‘there’ and instead felt a heaviness because now I would have to maintain this life. Realising this I started looking around at everyone else, noticing that they too seemed to be maintaining the dream or worse - struggling through it in a stressed filled existence. Could you cultivate a state of happiness or blissfulness that was independent of life circumstance?
