We must not lose track of the fact that this is our life-No one else’s.Our life is OUR responsibility.
It becomes terribly confusing and quite messy when we try to live our life for others.
It is far better to live ones life with others. (Much word there)
Our egos are terribly complicated things. One wants in many ways to weaken it so that it is more able to see reality as it is.I do not say this in the manner of speaking that we become a pile of mush, not ever!
But that we become able to see the world unfiltered, no through all of our filters. Then we are both able to act properly and be in proper relationship to our world. The world will always break through and continually teach us as to what is actually reality. So in many ways our job is to train our minds to let go and then to behave accordingly. The more we do this the more authentic our lives are, the less we do this the less authentic our lives are.
It is very simple, yet very hard to do.
It takes practice, practicing all of our life.
