Why would we treat psychological pain differently from the physical pain?
There are No Guarantees in life.
We have a weird tendency to Demand for Guarantees – but, if you take a closer look at your life you experienced so far, you’ll discover with surprise that Nothing was Guaranteed.
And, if you’re just about to reply that Death is Certain, I invite you to define Death – and consider what Else Death could be, instead of the popular concept.
So, what if we were to take life simply As Is, moment by moment, and handle every single instance just the way It Is? What would happen if we stop producing stories about how things could’ve been, or how they should be?
Think of that for a moment.
You look at that moment from the Future, approaching, approaching… Ooops, the moment you looked for, it’s already gone, it’s Past already.
What does it mean, to “Live in the Moment”? Where is that “moment”?
This is a sample of Meta Model exercise. When you become too Conscious, too analytical and precise about Any concept, that concept slowly vanishes in thin air? Why? Because that concept is a construct, it is man-made and part of the universal self-hypnosis.
“The Tao that can be told
Is not the eternal Tao.”
Time, in and of itself, it’s a man-made concept, it’s a construct. As you start questioning it, it dissipates. The same goes for the concept of Present, and also for the concept of Past, or Future.
“Living in the Present moment” refers to that Tao that “cannot be told”. It is a way of Being.
