Trying to find inner happiness with outter content, such as materials, relationships, experiences, etc, is like trying to fix a broken car by taking
it to the car wash, it may look newer, but clearly it will not fix it. But the real insanity is in washing over and over again expecting for it to
work this time.
We have been brainwashed into believing that inner fullfillment can come from outter content, so we keep trying and trying, thinking that this time it
will work, and that there must be something wrong with us if that fulfillment doesn't arrive, or that we're not there yet, and we must keep adding
things into our lives to find it, thinking that one day it will be our turn to be like those people on tv. We are led to believe that those people
must be happy. Everybody likes them, they are rich and famous, so they must be happy. Yet they suffer from the same problems as the "lower members"
of society. They have addictions, can not hold relationships, and are even physically abusive. See, they have been brainwashed too, and the inner
fullfillment they were expecting never arrived either. But even worse, they are running out of material options. They have tried all the outter
content they could think of to make themselves happy and fulfilled, and still they are miserable as before. So they resort to those things that makes
them forget themselves, such as drugs and alcohol. Because those are the only ways they know to stop that noise machine in their heads.
Inner fulfillment, inner peace, happiness, whatever you want to call that state of being satisfied, will never come from the outside. There is only
one way for it to arrive to you, and its been known for thousands of years. The only way one can ever be satisfied is, by definition, by not needing
anything more. This is done by ACCEPTING what is happening in every moment of your life. Right now, as you read this probably sitting in your desk,
how do you feel? How does this moment feel? Look around the room around you, is there a problem right there, this very moment? That is what it means
to live in the moment, the acceptance of it. Putting a stop to the "what if''s" "what should've or could'ves". The mind can never accept the
present moment, so it always resorts to occupying itself with either future or past. So being present with what is happening now is how you reach
fulfillment, even if its for only a moment, but the mind never wants to be present. Houston, we have a problem.
Well what if I told you that little voice in your head that never wants to be in the now, but always looks to the future and present, is under your
Think about the following three points.
A) More than 90% of your thoughts are judgemental and repetitive. We barely use them for creative ideas and logic.
B) Thoughts are an illusion. This is a fact. While it is true that thoughts eventually manifest, they are not real in and of themselves. Treating
ideas as real is delusion.
B)Who is the listener of that voice in your head that you call your thoughts? And who is the creator of those thoughts? The answer to both is you.
With these points in mind you will be a little more motivated to experience moments of thoughtlessness, and inner fulfillment.
If you are the creator of your thoughts, then that means you CAN control them. All it takes is simply thinking "stop" or better yet "it doesn't
matter" in the middle of a train of thought and you will stop the delusion. But for this you must first believe and know that 90% of the time,
whatever you're thinking doesn't matter. Do this as much as you can throughout the day, and a greater depth will start manifesting in your life.
For thousands of years we have blindly allowed our thoughts to control us. They have caused a great deal of human tragedy. The seeking to be
respected, to be admired, to be in power, and the seeking of more outter content these were the reasons behind the madness that has been our
civilization, and they are all symptoms of humans under the control of their thoughts. A humanity seeking fulfillment in the wrong places. So the
realization that we CAN be in control of our thoughts is a great revolutionary advance and it has arrived.
