“ Commandments means you're trying to fix your life, consciousness means you want to liberate your life ”
If you are in a state of reaction, anyone or anything can take charge of your life. Conscious response is the way forward.
Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.
The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.
I want words at my funeral. But I guess that means you need life in your life.
There was a time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it.
