Safe & Happy
Dec 04, 2019
Despite Appearances to the Contrary
Mankind has never been safer
Mankind has never been healthier
Mankind has never been as connected
Mankind has never had easier access to information
Mankind has never had such a long life expectancy
Mankind has never had it easier
You wouldn't know that if you read some social media posts nowadays.
Because people are looking to be scared so that they can stay safe.
It's good to stay safe from real threats
What most people do is attempt to stay safe from imaginary threats.
They imagine an unsafe existence and then attempt to stay safe from their imagination.
Of course this is not to say bad things don't happen, of course they do, however for the vast majority of your life you are perfectly okay in this moment, the only moment you are alive.
You are able to meander off to an imagined future in your mind and scare yourself with a story you make up about that future but that is all it is….a story.
When you get to that imagined future not only is it now the present, you are hard wired to deal with whatever it throws at you (if anything at all).
Stay focussed on this very moment
