Are We Missing Out? Or Opting Out?
We put a lot of stock into doing things now and doing them fast. We’ve got to get this done now, because if we don’t we may miss out on our whole lives. FOMO, yes? You may miss out on an opportunity… it begins small. You might miss out on a big win… it gets larger. You may miss out on the success due to you… it spirals out of control. I mean, it’s true, right? if we don’t get it done now, we’re gonna miss out on something. But are we? Missing out? On anything?
what are we missing?
Mostly, the idea that we’re missing out is in our minds. And there it lives as if it is real, when it is only just a thought… and no more.
If there really is a greater power that has your back in all of life, do you really think it would let you miss out on some important aspect of your life? Of course not.
But just like you make up your mind to believe the things that exist in social media or at your job or in your immediate circle, you must make up your mind that thoughts are just thoughts… and nothing more.
meditation helps with everything
Meditation can help with that. Meditation helps to slow down your mind. For some of you, that very statement sounds like the worst idea ever. There are others of you that think that sounds like heaven but are certain it will never happen for you. And then, others of you still that long for this very reality of peace. I’m speaking to all of you…
Meditation doesn’t have to be some strict practice. It doesn’t have to be a perfect practice. I finally learned for myself that if I just sit quietly and put all my attention on my breath for 20 minutes of my day, my day goes better.
It took me a long time to get to that point of realization. And I went through a lot of making myself wrong, and making meditation wrong, and naysaying on meditation for longer than I like to admit. But the point is? I’m here now. Do I sit down every day? I wish. But the days I do miss, I don’t spend making myself wrong anymore. I just make a promise to do it when I think of it.
That is enough.
you are enough, whether you believe that or not
