Chronic pain and vedanta





In modern western society we are pushed to continually "doing" because it is build on grow, without it collapse.
We work to buy the things we want. We want protection, knowledge and amusement. We want to grow, be wiser, be rich, be happier, more spiritual.
Without this dominant energy of doing and wanting we think we collapse. This economy will collapse without grow. What will collapse in me when I stop wanting and doing is my idea of myself.

Stop wanting and doing doesn't mean I do nothing, it means that what I'm doing is coming natural. I think, I feel, I do, feel sad or happy.

Do not interrupt this life that is unfolding, do not touch it, do not attach, let it happen and do what you have to do, you know what.
