We can actually have a pleasant life, free of frantic drama and trauma.
Life might seem difficult at times, but we also have the ability to simplify it ourselves. Video excerpted from Life Essentials: Episode 4, Born to Feel. Full audio or video also available in the Events section of the app and website.
The main thing you know really is, that it’s an irony where we have made our lives so difficult. And it’s not that somebody else has made our lives difficult. We have made our lives difficult. We have taken and gotten ourselves completely lost in explanations and we want everything explained to us. Because we have lost the ability to just observe something and understand it or accept it.
This is how it is. Water is wet. We want to know why is water wet. Water is cold, but we want to know why is water cold. It’s cold because it’s cold.
And to me, really what I do in my reinterpretation of so many things about life and about the problems of life is to put it in a very simple way so that people can just understand it. Because if we can understand the issues that we really have, we can go forward.
We can actually have a pleasant life, we can actually have a meaningful day, every single day in which we feel in touch with what we are all about. It doesn’t need to be this whole frantic stuff that we always … the drama, the trauma that it all gets involved in.
