This Could be one of my Most Brilliant Arguments Hands Down!

"Of course that didn't work out, but hey, at least the moment was one for the books."


Here's what I think is brilliant.  This isn't absolutely original. I've heard a similar joke of it from this amazing stand up comedian, Russell Peters, and it had just stayed to me until it revealed itself quite useful right at the moment when I needed it.



Situation: I sleep at the top bed, while younger bro sleeps at the bottom bed.
Problem: I wanted to switch beds with him.  There's a gleam of possibility that he'll allow me to.

Me: Hey can we switch beds?
Bro: No.

So out of desperation and a bit of inspiration from Russell Peters I finally argued:

Me: They say that mature people aren't afraid of change.  Be mature.  Choose change.

3 Shocking Philosophical Truths that I've Discovered.

"You are not your thoughts but you are the stillness, the space that listens to the thoughts and the one who decides in the end." 

Source: buzzsugar

1.  You are not your past and future but you are now.  You are not your thoughts but you are the stillness, the space that listens to the thoughts and the one who decides in the end.  That's me channeling Eckhart Tolle, a revolutionary author of the best selling books "The Power of Now" and "The New Earth".  He talks about our true self and ego and a lot of things that we don't usually think about much, and how all that we believe to be about us is somehow wrong.  It's screeching break from what we are programmed to think.  Read more about his books and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

2.  You are not the entirety of your decisions.  It was just something that occurred right to you at the moment.  So when you failed at something, it is not you to be blamed but your decision your decision making skills.  And it may suck initially but it will get better in time.

3.  The ego is a mask to put on so you can make yourself better than others.  Refer to the "New Earth", there's really a lot of enlightening ideas in there that could potentially open up a different level of consciousness.

And it's obvious by now that I've just sank my fingers in Eckhart's pie for too long... that doesn't sound good, but hopefully my point gets through to you somehow.

Why Giving up my Beilef of the Future is the Best Advice so Far.

"reassuring myself that the universe would somehow bring me to it; that it will cradle me into its arms ... and all I just had to do now is sit back enjoy and relax, do little things that I enjoy."


"Give up your belief in the future."  

I've read that line a few days back and I it threw me off the wall.  For years now I've always had this vision of me, the future, and I've always nestled on the wonderful feeling of being in it.  How I looked and how I dressed like and much importantly how I felt in that moment.  That image of me had visited me every now and then and it never fails to give me the same jitters.  And that line that I just read, made me feel that all of it was stolen from me.  It hurts.

That was probably a good wake up call I needed to pick myself up and actually work my way to get there as opposed to reassuring myself that the universe would somehow bring me to it; that it will cradle me into its arms and drop me off in that moment, and all I just had to do now is sit back enjoy and relax, do little things that I enjoy.

Man was I disillusioned.

Has anyone of you had this magic wooshoo going on in your head?  How were you able to snap out of it?

I'd love to know your story. :)
