How I have and I’m walking this point is first of all slowing myself down and not rushing to participate ‘as the mind’ which ‘wants to be in all’ for the sake of that recognition point from others as the confirmation of me-as-mind existing here. Then I see that whatever I am going to say is here as the moment within the starting point of common sense and within the context of what’s being communicated – this is the actual moment of ‘decision making’ wherein we can either go and choose to express knowledge and info for the sake of keeping ourselves in our ‘safe boundaries’ or we actually state what is here which might not always resonate as ‘acceptable’ within the bounds of our current reality which is ‘where we wanna go’ if we are here to challenge the accepted ways of the world wherein supremacy is given to thoughts that keep the same old system in place.
It’s quite interesting to actually observe how the mind would say ‘this’ or ‘that’ for the sake of puffing up one’s ego in any way, I mean, virtually we get to the point wherein we can assess where does every single commentary as the specific choice of words or how any seemingly ‘fleeting point’ comes-from and the intention behind it, which can enhance our entire self-definition as the mind instead of simply communicating within common sense here.
So, in the beginning as we go establishing ourselves and defining for and as ourselves what is speaking as self in common sense and what is speaking only as the known ways of the mind, I simply had to stop immediately answering/talking back ‘as usual’ and literally give myself some breathing space-time to see where were such words coming from – was it myself wanting to re-establish myself as ‘what I know’ as a safe-comfortable space as the mind or me supporting common sense as that impartial point that all can relate and see is what’s best for all – which is the type of perspectives that are often disregarded, overlooked or deliberately neglected in our current reality.
Then, as we go seeing the common sense points that can be directed and thus expressed through ourselves in our physical reality, we start communicating ensuring that we are no longer supporting the same systematic ways of existing only as a blabbering ego of knowledge and information, but we become a literal spokesperson of that which is best for all – common sense – once again, not often said or even understood which is how we’re able to assist and support ourselves/others to see and find the common sense in any given usual ‘conflict’ or everyday living situation wherein there could be something not seen/ understood when defending or ego, or someone’s interests or anything else that stands as a point of separation. This way we become a point that expresses a solution that is applicable in simplicity, in the moment and enable others to see how easy it is to do that for themselves as well.
This is how we go placing aside the ego every time we tend to only speak as the ‘known safe space’ where no conflict is created between people wherein the usual patting of backs takes place even if each one knows that what’s been communicated is dishonest and not actually supporting anything in such exchange of words.
Then comes the times when we rather ‘keep quiet’ for the sake of remaining ‘safe’ and not having to stand up within ourselves to exert the obvious common sense we see in any given situation, but may fear to express due to any type of mind limitation to not do so.
Fear of conflict is something that leads us to then remain silent as the ‘safe spot’ to remain in where no one can attempt to refute our self-beliefs on ‘how things are’ and ‘how things work’ within our mental schemes. So, daring to confront ourselves through expressing ourselves without the usual drive for ‘wanting to prove oneself right/wrong’ – or the opposite as fear of having our world and idea of self debunked as ‘knowing more/ less’ or any other polarity degradation like that – is actually of great support to see that we only feared speaking out of ‘losing our egos’ which are only mental ideals and creations of ourselves that stand as the safe-zone wherein we’re used to ‘ourselves’.
We tend to then go into seclusion wherein we remain ‘safe’ without seeing that the only thing we can fear losing is when standing as egos fearing losing ourselves as the ego – which is quite ludicrous. We can only react to anything if we are defining ourselves as anything for that matter which is like already taking ‘one side of the coin’ instead of embracing ourselves as both sides.
This is how changing the starting point of sharing ourselves in the moment and walking away from communicating as the ego that seeks to be recognized, approved, praised or valued by others accordingly takes place as we allow ourselves to actually communicate, express in common sense and within doing so start living the words, becoming our own confirmation of that which ‘makes sense’ within the bounds of this reality.
Within embracing ourselves as common sense and walking as that point that communicates and expresses in common sense, there is nothing to lose and instead, we can in fact create an opportunity in real time for other to see things in our reality with a different perspective, one that is often obfuscated by the usual veils of the mind that stand as desire to be right, to ‘know the most, for power/money and a bunch of fears as limitations to not confront ourselves and our own creation.
So, suggestion is to simply allow yourself to not ‘fear’ losing yourself as ‘an idea’ and instead embrace common sense and equality as the point that we live by and thus express and communicate within wherein we can support ourselves and others to see how brainwashed we’ve been to complicate our existence just for the sake of ‘watching each other’s backs’ as personalities/egos, nothing else but a bunch of minds keeping the bubbles intact. Time to burst them at all cost.
