'Obsession' Chapter

Narcissus-Caravaggio_(1594-96)

Obsession is like weather wearing down a building. Ruts and wear patterns arise in the mind due to a habit of connecting with and exposing yourself to specific forces, psychic or spiritual. You lose connection with the mind, because you are obsessed with process over potential. This puts the mind on auto-pilot and you out of the drivers seat. Often you can get out of obsession by deliberately “losing”. You don’t become obsessed with winning or success, these come naturally. You get obsessed with “not losing”. Obsession is rejection not acceptance.

The temple of all wisdom is what nature laid right before us, and within us, and beyond us when we are ready. But let’s start small shall we not? Give up obsession before we see that there is nothing to attain? Accept your life and actually have it. What if you saw your life like your life processes? Treat your life events like breathing? Could you obsess? Could you? Would you?
