Who's in control?
Consciousness is the root of every problem, joy, and everything in between. Regardless of the events in your life, your whole experience is based on your interpretation and nothing else. The only way to maintain peace is to give up the idea of external problems. Our species most important competition is ourselves, not even the other humans, our self. Take ownership of your time on earth, rise above your instincts and understand what you are doing and why. Everyday work on becoming aware of your conditioning. All of our values are influenced by society so make sure you’re living the life you want to live. Figure out what is important to you and the principals you’re going to live by. With every thought that comes across your mind, understand why you are having this thought. Your memory and identity are burdens from the past preventing us from living freely in the present. Your conditioning, your ego, and society shapes every thought and reaction we have until we become fully aware of these influences and can let them go. Through this awareness your mind will be able to see the truth clearly and be free of conflict. We need to stop accepting the voice in our head as the source of all truth. But all of it is malleable, and every day is new. “Our brain allows us to understand all we know of life, yet it is the most mysterious and baffling aspect of life”
