Looking Inward Versus Looking Outward 

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 10, 2020 Mind

What’s the beauty of life, if not happiness, mirth and comfort? This is the big question most of us struggle to answer every moment of every day of our lives. Admittedly, in pursuit of happiness, we run from pillar to post driven by the wind and forces of the world we live in. How do I look? Am I not better more educated than John, why does he have a good job and mine is wacky? Of course I’m more beautiful than Jane, why can’t my relationship work out like hers? These are questions that bother our minds and fill our thoughts. Unfortunately, we have come to that point where we anchor the foundation of our happiness on self-gratification and the achievements of those around us. We strive for people’s endorsement for our world to make sense and for the star in us to dazzle. We relentlessly look outwards to...

Your thoughts create your reality

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 9, 2020 Mind

Thoughts become things. Have you heard of that phrase? Well, it exists for a reason. Your mind actually creates your reality. Of course, it doesn’t mean that our minds can alter the physical world. Still, what it does mean is that what dominates your thoughts becomes your reality. This is because thoughts actually generate emotions, and what do emotions generate? They generate interpretations, which then generate experiences. And what are experiences than your very reality? Just think about it. How about people that have financial difficulties? They think about it all the time until they become chronically anxious. In addition, they start doubting themselves and start thinking they don’t have the ability to make it in this world. It leads to hopelessness, which causes them to search for sources of income that are at the same level as their self-esteem – low. The thing about them is that they don’t...

The false self, ego

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 9, 2020 Mind
False self the ego. Vanity. Young beutiful woman outside. Mirror reflection.

What is the ego? The ego is actually the mind identity that we create, an identity that is above all, false. You have to understand that you are more than your mind. All of us have certain beliefs when it comes to what are we. Those beliefs are about our abilities, our personality, and our talents. It’s what becomes the structure of your ego. Ego is not a static thing, but a dynamic and active part of your personality. It plays a significant role in creating the emotional drama in your life. By agreeing to the thoughts you have about yourself, you’re constructing a self-image. There are thoughts that especially contribute to the structure of your ego. Such thoughts sound something like, “I am smart.” “I am not good at sports.” “Nobody loves me.” “My scar makes me ugly.” Behind all these mentionings of “I” and “me” hides your ego...

Social conditioning - How to think for yourself

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 9, 2020 Mind

All of us have thoughts, and throughout life, we have formed some opinions. You can’t help but wonder, how many of those beliefs are based on our understanding and how many are results from social conditioning? You might know a lot of things, but some of those things are from your personal experience, while others come from parrot-like learning. The problem is that critical thinking isn’t stimulated, and it’s that way even when we are going to school. Some people never wonder is what the media is telling them actually the truth. And what’s the result of this social conditioning? We have emotional insecurities, and corporations exploit them to sell us services and products. The media that I mentioned earlier uses propaganda tactics to unable us from thinking with our own minds. Are you ready to start thinking for yourself? Do you have the courage to escape the mentality of...

Manifestation

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 9, 2020 Mind

Is it possible to make your thoughts your reality? Could it be that we can bring things into our life by belief? Sounds fantastic, and it’s true. The world is actually a reflection of our actions, beliefs, and energy. Our dominant beliefs allow us to filter the world, and our mind is a mechanism that seeks goals. That is why, if you have a vision for what you want your life to be or you have faith that great things exist, your mind will bring the ideas and information that support you in that. What you think becomes your reality, so choose your thoughts wisely. If you choose to believe that dream jobs, fantastic opportunities, infinite abundance, and romantic partners exist, you’re inviting them into your life. Acting in accordance with the identity applies to all humans. When you’re trying to create your desires, you have to think, act, and...

Cherish every moment

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 9, 2020 Mind

Moments pass, and they can feel like grains of sand slipping through your fingers. You can try to hold on to them, but you’ll eventually end up standing on the beach and looking at the sand without being able to see every single grain of sand that you held in your hands… What I’m trying to say is that time passes and moments get forgotten or stay in the past behind us. It seems like we learn the importance of cherishing every moment only when something bad happens. Does it really take a tragedy for us to realize that our lives are made of moments? Cherish every moment you have with your loved ones, cause they might not always be around. You’ll regret not spending more time with them once you’re unable to. The thing about happiness and sadness is that they both pass. A moment of joy goes by...

Be present - here and now

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 9, 2020 Mind
Buddhist monk meditates outside practicing being present in the here and now

Moments pass and are soon forgotten, so what’s the point of them if you’re not going to live in the moment? What it means is being focused on the present and being there, completely in the moment. What’s happening now is all there really is. Forget about yesterday and tomorrow. Be present in the now. It requires awareness to master this. Your mind will not wander when you’re fully present and practicing awareness. It means being focused on what is happening right now and forgetting about the past and the future. Thinking about the past is memory, and thinking about the future is fantasy, so you cannot fully experience the moment except when you’re living it. Once you stop resisting and become present, you will feel a timeless level of love, contentment, and peace. By staying present in each and every moment, you will start living your life without waiting...
