Problems open up possibilities
But only if your willing to admit that you have a problem.
Only if you are willing to admit that you have gone wrong somewhere.
Only then will the possibility present itself.
Because the mist will not clear and present the possibility of we are lying to ourselves and saying everything is ok when it isn’t.
Admit you have a problem.
See the possibilitie it opens up.
Take action on it.
The Weight and Filter of the past
Is what we are basing our lives we live today on.
What happened in the past does not equal your future…
But when you look out of the horizon on your future, you are looking through a lens that is filtered from past mistakes.
So you cannot get past them and you are constantly living in the past today.
Which means you cannot progress because of this weight that’s dragging you down.
But this filter is from the past, right… So why should it determine what you do in the future?
Why should we be held back by a filter that isn’t even relevant anymore…
So you need to find a way to let go of the weight and remove the filter so you can start living today.
“Now is no time to think of what you do not have.
Think of what you can do with that there is”
When Musonius Rufus was exiled from Rome, he would use that time to help the others who were also exiled. He found them an underwater spring and stated how man usually turn out better when exiled than they do whilst at home.
He came out with something along the lines of ‘When your at-home how often you see the world, how often do you see all your friends’
(Not an exact quote) but it means that you will never have everything at any one time so make do with what you have.
When we focus on what we don’t have, we lose sight of all we do. We lose sight of all the possibilities that are at hand.
We become blinded to desire.
There is so much at your fingertips.
