The Corridor of Life

7 posts in this topic

Life is hard…

Have you noticed that every single experience morphs your illusory nature? You look back and cannot fathom that you are not the same person anymore. “You” are always changing.

You are walking through a corridor of life, persecuted by sufferings that come from the past, and lured by the pleasures that come from the future.

Crushed on the surface, you do not chase your dreams anymore…You’re empty!

And sometimes this emptiness is seen as a loss of all illusory purposes.

And your goal is to walk this corridor of life consciously and to be free.

And this is the hardest thing ever for the egoic mind to not put any labels on the experience and just Be.  

Hard to remain calm when your usual life is falling apart. And you desperately cling to something that is not going to work, out of fear, to meet your survival needs.

That’s why people become alcoholics and drug addicts. Because when you do not accept your current life situation, you are in a painful denial. This is how you betray your self as a human. If you need any substance to alter your consciousness, and you do it regularly, you are in denial. Actually, you know it.

There is a certain price for a freedom, and it remains on the opposite side of the fear.

I like reading you, Galyna. 

Sorry that you are going through a hardship right now. I will PM you one practice that helped me when I was going through a painful period in my life.

This stuck out to me. I've found that's been quite true in my life. Repeating stupid patterns I know aren't going to work, convincing myself it will somehow be different each attempt. The whole time fear looming and casting a shadow I know is there but don't want to look.

It's only when I've done radical things or made big changes do I feel the light burn that shadow away, if just for a moment.

"I'm afraid expulsion is the only answer. It's the opinion of the entire staff that Dexter is criminally insane!"

This is describing my life completely right now. It's like no matter how much I learn there is more to learn because life is an infinite perspective. Since this is true every perspective is truth so true freedom is to stop judging it since everything is you! Great post Galyna now we both know what to do!!! We can do whatever we like cause such is the beauty of life!!!


The same strength, the same level of desire it takes to change your life, is the same strength, the same level of desire it takes to end your life. Notice you are headed towards one or the other. - Razard86

Maybe everything in life should run its course and when we are ready to let go, will do it with appreciation of the experience and light heart. ❤️
