The more regularly I make space in my mind, the less I think about making my life better, it just gets better. Breath by breath, step by step, I live my most optimum life.
On this journey, even when I fall, I am standing. I haven’t really fallen, I have simply experienced the duality of the world. Who I am remains unchanged because the unchanged is who I am. It is through the unchanged, that I change my world.
My world gets better with so little thought, that sometimes I am taken aback at how much can be achieved by having so few thoughts.
Let there be space in your mind.
“He suffers more than necessary, who suffers before it is necessary.”
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
We spend a lot of our time worrying about the future, the place that does not even exist. By doing so we miss the space in our minds and the present moment. We think the more we worry, the more prepared we will be. Of course, it is sensible to plan and prepare for the future, but when we live the future in the present and are consumed for hours and days by a future that does not exist, then we are not living at all, in fact we are missing life. When we do this we are not planning and preparing ourselves for a future event, we are worrying about something that has not happened. To do so, is to suffer, when there is no suffering.
The future will always be unknown. It is only in the present moment that it will become known. There will always be uncertainty and that’s okay. In the words of John Allen Paulos, Professor of Mathematics, “Uncertainty is the only certainty there is”. So let us embrace it because no matter how much you think about the future, you will never know it, for the simple reason it does not exist!
When all your mind wants to do is worry about the future, let there be space in your mind instead and come to know how very little there is for you to worry about. It will guide you and give you reprieve, so that you don’t have to spend so much of your time and energy worrying. The space in your mind does not know how to let you down. It only knows the most optimum path for you at any single moment. Fall into its’ embrace. It is warm, peaceful, protective and free from worry.
Make a little space in your mind.
When there is space in your mind, you see things clearly, as they are, without thought, without language, without imagery. You are clear, focused and guided by intuition. Here there is no thought, there is only space and it knows only the most optimum path for you, in any single moment. Your mind may disagree and that’s okay, let it, that’s what it does. Trust that which is greater than thought. Trust the space in your mind where all thought happens, so that the empty space can deliver the thought that serves you best. You will know this thought as having arisen from the space in your mind because you will be at peace with it. A thought about yourself or your life that you’re at peace with, is a thought that originates from the space in your mind. It originates from YOU. Know it. Trust it. Act on it.
Let there be space in your mind. After all it is who you are.
In the digital age of social media, we are bombarded by constant communications. We are gorging on the thoughts of others’, injected into our minds, every few minutes or hours a day. This isn’t just information overload, but a communications overload of other peoples’ thoughts, opinions, images, videos, ideas, philosophies, beliefs, values etc. Some of these communications may be good for you, some bad, but for the purpose of this post, it doesn’t really matter. What does matter, is that now more than ever we need to regularly create some space in our minds, so that our minds get a chance to breath throughout the day.
Yet time is of the essence in an age where everything is moving at the speed of light and we are left with less and less time. Meditation and mindfulness take time and discipline. It may only be 10 or 15 minutes a day, but when you’re time poor, committing to it everyday isn’t always easy. Yet the space in your mind is yours anytime, anywhere, anyhow you choose it. It takes nothing from your day at all. It’s meditation on the go. Simple, easy, effortless and at your fingertips. Perfect for our Digital Age.
As you go through your day, create space in your mind, as and when you choose, even if it’s just for a few seconds at a time. It will feel refreshing, like a mental mini-break!
Make a little space in your mind and take a mental breather.
Meditating for just a few seconds at a time is easy and effortless, giving you regular reprieve from your thoughts, throughout the day. That’s totally worth it!
If you choose at any given moment to let there be space in your mind for just a few seconds, that kind of commitment is easy to find. What excuse could you ever come up with for not letting there be space in your mind for a few seconds, anytime, anywhere you chose?
There is no pressure, no planning, no organising or even feelings of guilt for not being able to commit to 10 minutes a day or feeling deflated because you weren’t able to quieten your mind that particular day for much of the time when you sat down to meditate.
You are totally in control. You do it when you chose to and for as long as you chose to. A few seconds is more than enough if that is what you chose in that moment.
You see it’s not the quantity of time that is important, but the quality of space in your mind and even a few seconds of space is both powerful and valuable to your life.
As you do this at your own pace and choosing, it becomes easier to do more of it and for longer and gradually without much effort at all you will be creating space in your mind for 10 or more minutes a day, without ever sitting down to formally meditate, giving you peace all throughout the day.
Let there be space in your mind.
If you are in a situation that is not good for your wellbeing, let there be space in your mind and it will guide you out of it.
At this time don’t seek thought to help you, seek space. If only for a few seconds at a time, let there be space in your mind, where there is the thought about what is happening. It will give you peace when you need it most.
It is from this space that the thought to help you out of the situation, will arise. You will know this thought as having arisen out of the space in your mind because you will be at peace with it, all of it, even the uncertainty of it. If you are not at peace with the thought, it has not originated from you. So go back to space, for it knows only the most optimum life for you and will show you the way out. It will give you freedom and peace first in your mind and then in your physical situation. Let space be your guiding light.
Make a little space in your mind.
All intelligences – physical (PQ), cognitive (IQ), emotional (EQ) and spiritual (SQ) live in the space in your mind, not in your thoughts.
This space has the DNA for your most optimum life at any given moment in time. It is pure intelligence. Trust it, be it and let it guide you because it knows you better than your thoughts do, even the positive ones.
Let there be space in your mind. Be intelligent.
This isn’t about spirituality, God or self-help. It’s not even about meditation or mindfulness. This is about who you are. The power that is in your mind when there is no thought. This power is pure energy. The sort that creates beyond all knowledge.
This energy is nothing less than MAGNIFICENT. It is who YOU are.
Let there be space in your mind. It has the intelligence to do the rest so that you may live your most optimum life, without thinking about how to be better.
If it were not for the thoughts in your mind, you would already know yourself as greatness.
Make a little space in your mind and come to know how powerful you really are.
Nature is your portal to the space in your mind. It will take you there when you can’t get there on your own. This is because nature is more connected to space, than we are; for the simple reason that nature does not think. Its’ second by second evolution is nothing less than spectacular and it happens without a single thought.
When you choose to create space in your mind, focus on nature. Give nature your undivided attention, without thought. Watch it, hear it, feel it, smell it and observe its’ movement. Let go of the need to use words to describe it, just simply observe it. This will help create space in your mind.
Let us all create a little more space in our minds, so that we may know how truly spectacular we are.
When I think I know myself, it is then that I do not know who I am.
Let there be space in your mind, so that you can know who you are beyond thought.
