Man lives by comparison

If you didn’t know what’s “good”, you also wouldn’t know what’s bad 🤷‍♀️ Sometimes you only realize how okay something was after experiencing something worse lol.

I’ve mentioned something like this before, but I was thinking that if everyone were enlightened and everything were perfect from the start, life would be pretty boring, wouldn’t it? It’s the challenges that make you really appreciate the good things in life. It’s like working out, you kinda hate it, but it also makes you feel good, your muscle tissue needs to break down before becoming an upgraded version of itself, it’s the same with everything and yourself.

Reminds me of the allegory of the cave (Plato’s Cave). I don’t wanna go into much complicated detail here, rather use it to tell you my own version: If you were born in a cave, spent your entire life there and knew nothing else but the cave, then you wouldn’t exactly find that dreadful, right? Because if that’s all you know, you don’t know that there is a better, more beautiful world out there, thus can’t be sad about the place you’re in right now, right? If we think about that kinda situation from our perspectives right now, then of course we think that that would be a depressing and horrible existence, but we only think this way because we know that life can be better and compare it to our standards.

So, it all depends. In the world of forms, in the world of duality, everything is subjective and sometimes, we can only make decisions and learn our lessons by comparing, experiencing something new and comparing again 🤷‍♀️

  1. This is also my exact fear. Of being so used to the way I live, and not knowing that there’s a whole new way of being that I’m not achieving due to laziness or what have you. Weird how the mind works huh? Thanks for this post!

    1. I know, right? Humans are creatures of habit and I guess we like to fall into this trap of thinking that things are never changing 🤷‍♀️ lol. I definitely noticed that I get a little moody when I’m not doing anything, but luckily I can quickly zoom out again XD. The truth is, things are always changing, just need to remember that 🙂
