What’s Important?

Nothing is that important.  Our minds make things important b/c that’s how our ego hangs around.  Nothing is important, except what you’re doing right now, at this moment.

Yesterday, I had something important on my mind.  It created anxiety.  I don’t even remember what it is. What I do know is that my karma is to feel that anxiety.  If I don’t have something to worry about, I’ll create something.  Looking back, none of it was important.  My mind gave it importance.

The problem w/ the mind is that it can get out of control pretty easy.  Sure, it helps me solve problems; but it’s not me.  My thoughts are not me.  It’s just my mind.  You can’t ignore it, just not personalize it.

It’s funny.  I had a really good day today.  I enjoyed myself, on a weekday, when I should be working.  My ego did not like this at all.  That night, I picked a fight with myself over nothing.  What’s the answer?  I have to see desire for what it is.  Desire is the ego’s motivation.  No desire and the ego weakens.
