Something to think about!

This is a short and interesting! Hope you enjoy the post. Have a great weekend!  John

“Has it ever happened to you, that someone said something you didn’t like, and later you answered him dozens of times in your head?  And every time you ran the scenario through your mind, his words were a bit harsher, and yours were a bit more “right.”  Each time you mad sharper, clearer claims to answer the evil coming from his lips.  And each time your ‘accurate’ memory recorded things just a bit differently, till it obliterated every trace of what had really happened.  your feelings got worse each time, your anger increased, as did your sadness and sense of righteousness.  Only days after the event, it is already written in your memory in a completely different way than the way it actually happened.  In fact, your memory holds a different even, which never took place, just as everything you remember never took place.”  

“And while you continue to believe your memory, your beliefs about how the world works crystallize .  At some stage of their lives, people fill up with so many thoughts and fears that they lose the spark of life.  They stare at little children in amazement, not seeing that what comes between them and the divines beauty before them is their belief in their memories.  This belief leaves a mark that will stay with them all their lives   Memory is disaster.  All your worries are memories that you have projected onto the future.  You take things you ‘remember’ that happened in the past and act to prevent their re-occurrence in the future, not notice in that you are guided by fear.  You call it rational thinking, planning ahead, realism.  You give it names that all sound so right, so positive, so realistic.  The memory keeps taking you back and forth between two non-existent times-the past and the future, and skipping the only thing that really exists – the present.  And do you get the absurdity of it?  Nothing happened.  It’s all in your head.  Can you point a finger at something that happened in the past?”
