Life doesnt need to be a “good story”

We (or more correctly out ego/ our self-image) likes to take every experience we have to help build a story that tells you how you life is going.

The story can be good, bad, boring, drama-filled etc etc. If the story is good, the ego/ self-image is satisfied, and if it is not good (eg compared to others’ stories), you (your ego really,) feel bad.

But what if you had no story?

This would make life much simpler and more natural.

You would have no self-image to defend.
You would have no fear of tomorrow because with nothing at stake about how your story is going you could accept any experience and let it go.
In that state, both freedom and bliss reside.

– Deepak Chopra
