The mind insists that you listen to its story and it is surly only telling you a fairy-tale. This tale is told mentally and therefore we often remain oblivious to living consciously in the moment.
The body will experience discomforts, pain, illness and eventually death. There will also be experiences of mental and emotional happiness. Nonetheless there is no need for a story to be told. However the mind is conditioned to use all experiences as a continuation of our human saga. It seems impossible to disregard what it is telling us.
The tale of your experiences seems so real. Alas the now of your existence does not offer a story even if the psyche tells you otherwise. The mind will attempt to tell you a tale based on the past or future but will gradually cease as you remain anchored in the moment. It is the constant present that manifests life and not the illusions fabricated by our thoughts, beliefs or fears. Living consciously allows you to flow with life energy.
A Story of the Mind
There is no chance for a story to be told by the mind when a person is able to stay primarily aware of now. This is all that is needed to obtain enlightenment. It is possible to feel balance and serenity when you are living consciously in whatever unfolds. This will not necessarily mean that everything that happens will compliment your wishes. You will still spill a glass of milk from time to time, your body may become ill or you might win the lottery. Any and all of these situations should not influence your conscious awareness to now.
Human experiences will continue to occur just as they have and always will. Everything will come to pass but how you observe yourself and the universe will change completely. There will be space whereby you sense life energy and thus conscious awareness to now. The details of your existence will steadily dissolve into the background of living consciously. The mind and its story will continue but the thoughts accompanying this tale will lose more and more significance.
You will become actively aware of a divine presence that is universal. This is the conscious energy flow of life and it is you.
