The highest quality of life exists beyond our thinking mind in the zone where thoughts are not focused on. Now beyond the thoughts of a bum living on the streets and that same corporate executive exist the same silence; it is their thoughts and conditioning that makes them so different. In difficult financial times like we are going into that silence beyond thinking is our greatest resource and we need to value it as precious.
Our society places importance in to our thinking level and basically ignores that deeper quality. Our possessions and the people we interact with becomes a doorway into that inner reality; but they are just thoughts in our mind that makes us aware of that deep quality. The reality iswe need to value that silence beyond our thoughts as our focus because the doorway is only valuable if it takes you to that depth.
We hold on to thinking like a drowning man holds on to a life preserver and when those thoughts are taken away; we panic and drown. We need to look at the quality of life found in silence as the foundation of our life; that is who we really are. If challenges are viewed from that depth; we deal with them much better than if we hold on to anxious thinking.
So the bum on the street can view his challenges from that depth and the wealthy man whose thinking reality is falling apart can view his challenge from that depth also. They fall into the same quality of life when they go beyond their thoughts. Basically we all need to view challenges from that depth and have that reality become our common unity or community.
Nobody is exempt from this, from the person who is chronically ill to the corporate executive; we all have a primary focus and need that perspective to be how we view our challenges. Please tell me what you think of this idea.
