Our thoughts create our reality. Therefore our perception of what is happening around us is everything because it can make or break us. “The present moment is all you have,” Eckhart Tolle says, so instead of wishing you were elsewhere, just be. But when it comes to your thoughts, it’s a different story, because our mind is a powerful weapon. We could be looking at things with ego or we could be observing things with awareness. Ego says, “I don’t deserve to suffer” but awareness allows you to realize that you can surpass suffering. That it’s not actually “suffering” at all because we’ve picked our lessons in life and only if you allow them to destroy you, will they have the power to do just that.

When you’re aware, you’ve overridden the ego within.The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it,” Eckhart Tolle. When you fight the situation with your thoughts, you give it power. Resistance only delays the process. Resistance and denial only exist with ego. Once you become aware that the ego does not need to exist at all, you’ve opened yourself up to a world of miraculous and infinite possibilities. #FoodForThought
