I was doing my daily meditation the other day using the app "Headspace."
Each day has a unique message and this time it was that whether we think we are the best in the world or the worst in the world, both are a concept of the mind.
Neither have any objective standing or truth.
They are just “stories” in the mind that are not much different from each other.
That's because they are both created by the ego, rather than a reflection of what really is.
In order to truly experience peace of mind, you need to let go of that ego, regardless of its perspective of best vs. worst.
The only thing that truly matters is simply the moment you are in.
That’s what you can control.
There will always be another “best” or “worst” version of you in the future, so how you classify yourself right now does not matter since it’s just a concept that will soon fade.
This approach to daily living is why I put mindfulness as #1 in the daily habits for the GetFitFormula.
