What I would like to share with people is… freedom of thought.
We learn so many thoughts. Growing up with our family, going to school, studying through the university, taking exams, preparing for job interviews… There are a lot of norms, traditions, ways how certain groups of people speak of the life path. And sometimes it might fit us, and it boosts us forward, and it helps us to grow. Other times, and I think evolution plays a big role here, we actually feel motivated to outgrow the box where we have been raised.
It’s like a tomato: you take a seed, you give it the best possible conditions, you take care of it… But one day, the plant becomes too big for the pot the seed was growing in, and you put in out in the world. Yes, you may still remove weeds around it now and then, but you have less control on its environment and it is exposed to the real world. And it adapts, or doing it best…
With humans, what often happens is that we overgrow the box, but nobody prepares us for that. Nobody talks about it, nobody helps us to understand how mind works and how our experience of life is created. Some people intuitively find their way. Some people struggle and suffer.
What I have discovered is a key to trust, to getting in the touch with the fabric of this reality which holds our back when we need it, and provides us with all resources necessary for our development, step by step.
The best part, we already have it within us. Nobody teaches the tomato to find nutrients and the sun, nobody guides it through the daily life. However, with our school system, parents’ supervisory and control from the day we are born until we reach a random point on the timeline (18/21 years), we are taught that we need to be taught everything. We are taught that people around are smarter, more intelligent, that they have all the right answers (and we certainly don’t)… So we lose trust that we have the answers too. Even more, only we can have the best answers for ourselves, because no person in the world knows us as well as we do.
