New car, bigger house, the perfect partner. Nothing brings us the peace we hope for.
The new stuff becomes the new normal and the perfect partner seems to have the same imperfections as the previous ones.
The reason for this is that what we try to find outside of ourselves is just a mirror of what we think is broken from the inside. We don’t seem to be too different from computers. We are running the software that does exactly what we programmed it for a long time ago.
The software is our beliefs that we have taken to be true during our childhood. We give meaning to big, but also to apparently small events that are untrue.
For example, praise for good grades in school can mean that love must be earned. When a computer crashes, you can press Control + Alt + Delete. The task manager pops up and you can see which processes are currently running on the computer. We can do the same when we have the feeling our lives crash. With which beliefs have we programmed ourselves that keep us from living a more happy and freer life?
True freedom is cleaning up the old programs and forgive ourselves for the falsehoods we believed were true. An interesting fact is that the famous Windows XP background with the green pastures is called ‘bliss’. When we clean out the mess, bliss remains.
