Obstacles are anything you identify as an obstruction to what you want to achieve. In life, there is always confusion. Why the hell can we not ever achieve what we want? We always ask ourselves ‘Why doesn’t anything go right for me?’ Well, let’s put it straight, it never will. Yesterday, I had an eye-opening conversation.

I realised that sometimes we can complicate our own lives with the decisions we make, with the things we say and certainly with the things we do. What we may do on the surface isn’t truly what we want to convey. I was once asked ‘Why are you arrogant?’ and my reply was ‘Because people won’t let this ‘you’ go!’ Obviously, certain responses need intelligence or a little bit of common sense to understand. Most of the things I write or say, need to be carefully analysed. I am the words and the only truth is that everything I write is all about me. That is the point of me writing this. I have to accept my individuality. Back to my reply, that person went back and said to everyone that I am arrogant and I laugh at that. I am not going to say I am arrogant, in fact I kind of confirmed it to him that I am. However, under the surface there is something else. I was on about my individuality. I was telling him that he should concentrate on himself and not at me. He needs to look in the mirror and ask the question ‘Why are you arrogant?’ Then he will realise that his question showcased his ignorance.

Our main obstacle is our own ego, the ego complicates things for us. If you find yourself in a complication then somewhere, somehow some form of an ego has infected your situation. It could be your own ego or it could be somebody else’s ego. So remember, you can only be sure it is someone else’s ego if you are able to put yourself under a harsh examination by your own self. It requires meditation. It requires looking at your soul in the mirror and criticising it to the core. This is when you can get rid of the ego. It requires a lot of prayer towards the Infinite.

Yes, we have our own philosophers, philosophies, religions, prophets, gurus and sacred texts but by watching, learning, listening or reading them will not get you anywhere. They are telling you to commit to the life they are living or have lived. Their only message is of love and peace. Once you have embraced that love can you understand what religion really wants. Otherwise, go and happily waste your life in meaningless rituals. I am not saying rituals are meaningless but they are meaningless if you do not know love. To know love, you have to strip your ego, you need to peel it away from your core. It is in the core where love exists, it is in the core where love prevails and that is the truth. So to remove all complications, we must be able to realise and become love. It is not easy, but it can be done.

Anyway, let’s put a smile on your faces. Here is a video of one of my favourite philosophers – Osho. This gentleman really knows how to bring the word ‘FUCK’ to another level. Enjoy!

Lots of love and God bless
