When you can being to develop a proper relationship with your mind and see things as they are and not the way you want them to be, you being to navigate life with much more skill.
One of the things that gets us into a lot of trouble is when we start trying to project onto something our own ideas of how it actually is. But the issue starts when the alignment of our own personal reality and the actual reality are off. They can be very different.
It doesn’t matter if it’s in relationships, your body, your career…these delusions can get you into a lot of trouble. Not seeing things as they actually are can send you on a very long and painful path. Don’t dive into those delusions.
When you can start to see things very very clearly you get less emotionally involved and unhealthily attached and you can have a right sense of thinking about it. You can look at what’s in front of you and go…
This is the way that it is and it’s aligned with truth.
This is aligned with how it’s actually existing.
When you are aligned with this, you are going to make very good and strategic decisions for yourself and for others. This is why you want to see things as they are and not the way you want them to be.
