Mind

Tribute n˚38

Soon, I'll die. 

When I ask the trees what time it is, they just tell me, it's now Elia, it's only now.

I'm never too late or too early.

Time could only be created by the human kind, the human mind. The mind feeds on time, this is only where past and future can subsist.

When we stop identifying with the stream of thoughts, the light of now comes in. There is no mind, just a deep inner-peace that goes with just being.

We often oppose death to Life. The only opposite to death is birth. Death is a very small part of Life.

Life does not know any opposite. It is too broad, too majestic.

The trees told me the secret of life is to die before you die. And find out, there is no death, only transitions.

The doctors don't know when but I know that when it happens, it'll be now.

You're hungry you have one problem, you're not you have a hundred.

The greatest part of our unhappiness is mostly not caused by situations or people, the greatest part of our unhappiness is generally caused by what our mind is saying about what is happening around us. We are only unhappy because life does not happen the way we think it should. 

Epictetus, a Greek Stoic philosopher, came to this conclusion more than two thousand years ago. He was born a slave and ended his physical life teaching philosophy.

When we decide to leave those comments behind, our lives look suddenly so different. Try.

In the gap between two thoughts, our consciousness does not disapppear. In between those two thoughts, there is something else, that is much deeper than the worried ego, there is only the now, i realised in a sigh.
