It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Reflective Buddha on a misty morning.

    No..that says it all!

    Right now I don’t know who I am anymore!?
    I have no labels on myself…No identity…

    Come to think of it I always ,since I was a kid,just wanted to be seen and accepted just as “being my true self”….
    I guess I then had an inner feeling who I truly was..then I forgot…now I have peeled layer after layer of who I thought I was,and now “nothing “is left!

    And my mind….must have left it somewhere???
    Can’t find it!?Hmmm,strange is it not!
    Maybe it is a good thing?
    To be “empty”….Just free space…
    But I am so used to having the space full of thoughts!
    What do I do now?

    Wow Mia! You really are going through a transition, but if you can empty the mind of all thought, you’re ahead of most people. As you know, we try to obtain that void through meditation, but it’s hard because thoughts keeping entering in!

    What should you do now? I say you should go with the flow.

    Thanks…

    That is what I do…

    Some thoughts that was hiding deep within came Up today…not in but up….

    I would say they were more feelings than thoughts….
    I think I have to embrace everything that comes up,to stop resist,but it is scary sometimes….

    Because I’m used to be in control,now I’m not!

    But I guess I have to let go of that too…

    Go with the flow you say!

    Can you hand me a life jacket or a lifeline?
    Or am I just supposed to float?LOL!

    I guess I will end up in the Big sea!

    I always been fascinated of the sea…but a bit afraid too…It is so big and deep….

    I guess it is all about trusting the flow and let go!

    Your last statement is exactly it!….”Trusting the flow and letting go.” When you resist, it just creates needless struggles. Easy for me to say, because all of us wants to feel we have control of our lives. The reality is, much of it is out of our control and I think that’s what scares us.

    (Your comment about the sea got me to thinking about something I will post soon….maybe this evening! Thanks Mia!)
