Addiction To the Fear Of Missing Out
Not satisfied with our lives, we wonder if there’s more ‘over there’. We all do it but, if we become addicted to this behaviour, there will be no end to it. Life presents us with whatever we caused, and that is what we have to deal with. Others have their own karma – the result of past actions and ideas.
It may not be easy to live a simple life as we’ve been snowballing with activities for a very long time. Calming down and dealing with whatever is presented now is important as it focuses our mind, and, more importantly, gives us time and space to rest easy. We are not biting off more than we can chew.
When we have time to consider things, we can become more creative and enjoy life – our own inner circle. Death is never too far away, so we don’t want too many regrets about wasting time and space running around, trying to find ‘where it’s at’.
We are where it’s at already.
We are never without pure consciousness
because we are pure consciousness.
That’s what we are missing.
In this way,
there is no need for pride or jealousy.
We practise generosity, patience, morality, discipline, concentration,
Anything that comes within that atmosphere
is dealt with in equanimity.
