We are all addicted to the mind’s stories… new MJ Awakening Blog

mind stories

We are all addicted to the mind’s stories. And yet it’s important to note that the incessant stories between our ears are fine WHEN THEY ARE RECOGNIZED AS STORIES.

But most of the time this is not the case. Usually our attention is so involved with the illusory story in our head, that we lose conscious contact with the ever present here and now, which is storyless, and thus inherently free!!

But please do not take my word for it. Check it for yourself… does THIS presently arising moment require ANY story to exist? (Don’t go to mind or you are back in story!) And without a story, can anything even be said to be happening??

  1. Hi Michael, so are you saying that stories cannot exist in the present; that by definition a “story” can only exist in the past, which means it doesn’t exist at all. Is there a difference between “story” and “memory?” -Tracey

  2. Hi Tracey,

    Nope. Again, there is nothing wrong with story/memory IF it is recognized as such. 🙂
