Our mind craves for: what’s next, all the time. As a result, we end up looking for the next big thing.
Also, our brain keeps a safe locker of all our past experiences, which serves us best during fight or flight scenarios.
Our present get the least attention, which should ideally be the most important part of our living.
The duality results in our brain getting confused where one part tells us what not to do because of previous experiences. The other part keeps asking us: what’s next?
We end up being in a miserable state. As a result, we seek outside help and counseling. But in most cases, being self-aware, knowing oneself helps.
