Appearances via GreatMiddleWay

The images we see on a mirror are reflections, but they lack substance. In the same way, conventional phenomena arise from (and in) the basis-of-all, but they are not ultimately real.

If the mirror is dirty or warped, the reflections will be dull or distorted. Similarly, some of our perceptions can be more valid (clear) than others.

Appearances are false: insubstantial, impermanent, and dependent on multiple causes and conditions. And yet, they arise continuously.

False negative ego and goal setting. By Nina

I’ve proved myself wrong on so many occasions, I’ve doubted my potential and blown myself out of the water with success. It’s dangerous to doubt oneself and I think that most of us don’t even know what we are capable of. The trick to each of my successes was to persist beyond my self doubt; to overlook it by conquering fear of failure. I do once again have many goals I’d like to accomplish; goals I’ve left behind and overlooked. And again it’s time to ignore my false doubtful ego.

Why be scared? I’d rather fail trying to prove my doubtful ego wrong than to look back and see I didn’t try at all. In all actuality we as human beings have infinite potential. A potential to shape our lives and others around us. This occurs like a ripple effect and works in mysterious ways via laws of attraction and the perception of others.

I try and picture and visualize¬†the positive changes I’d like to see; from big changes to small. I write notes to myself reminding me of what my goals are, over time things can be lost, so I take notes. Goals and aspirations take time to flourish so persistence is key. Don’t rely on others to do your goals for you but always remember…Sometimes we can’t always get to our goals on our own, and it’s okay to ask for help, in fact I encourage it. Doing things alone is never easy and you’d be surprised how much help you can get by simply asking. Believe it or not people want to help you.¬†

Try to imagine who and where you want to be.

Make your present self reflect that person and do as they would do.

Ignore your false doubtful ego.

Take control of your life and your goals.
