Be Present In The Moment
Wanting can shift us away from being truly present. If I am forever wanting, then I cannot simply be. The wanting can therefore leave us sitting in a perpetual state of lack.
As such, I have been reflecting on what it is that I want, and the reasons why.
I have spent a good amount of time pondering on how I might shift this to an acceptance of what is.
It is true that I have plenty. I most definitely have enough. Yet I haven’t escaped this feeling that there is something I am perhaps missing.
What might happen at the point I manage to tick off certain wants?
Will I ever be fully satisfied if I don't take the time to shift myself away from a state of wanting, towards a state of simply being. Imagine being in the present moment, with absolutely no expectations. I wonder what this might feel like...
Am I cluttering up my wants list - as in do I add more than I tick off? If so, how might I reach a place of completion… wholeness… fulfilment? Is it even possible to reach such a place? Perhaps I am attempting mission impossible.
I seek to resolve my need to want, so that I can simply be.
I find myself sitting within some such category one might call mind feckery, when I start analysing something to this sort of degree. But I’ll figure it out. I always come to some sort of interesting conclusion.
I have been sitting with the duality of wanting, as expressed in my earlier poem.
This duality can very easily mess with one’s head.
For me personally, it seems I MUST be a certain way to achieve happiness, fulfilment and success –
Yet society, not to mention that little voice in my head, seems to caution me when I try to push forwards towards success.
I have realised that it isn't helpful to actively gift energy to duality, if it actively holds me back from taking action.
Someone once told me that it's better to do something, than to take no action at all.
One can find themselves stagnant, and sitting with this thought that they must people please, if they gift too much energy to duality.
I would be curious to know whether others have viewed this thing called “want” from multiple angles. I would love to hear your take on it. Or is this just me, doing the typical Rachel bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh in the energy of the full moon.
It is my hope that you managed to extract some sort of wisdom from this post. The weekend is coming, yay! I hope you have a really wonderful awesome weekend.
