Open The Door To Meaningful Life
What is a meaningful life for you? What characteristic you would attribute to the meaningful life?
Material wealth, love life, travel, brand name clothes, shoes, handbags, a sport car, an expensive watch, an extreme sport, a new technological gizmo or inner spiritual abundance and peace that always live within you? Just stop for a moment here and contemplate inwardly.
I am not condemning any material wealth here because everything what you own and experience in the physical life is your own essence, your own creation that you have chosen, yes – you always choose consciously or unconsciously. So how you could not love your material possessions which are reflections of inner you? Let’s establish this premise from the start. However, do not get attached to the material realm, do not cling and enjoy whatever life has on offer for you. And remember, all material things and phenomena are transient. You are powerful being and able to create anything and everything you want. In order to do so successfully you need to expand your perception on life and up level your consciousness from which you currently operate.
We all search for meaning in our lives trying to find what is this life about and we do so based on what we have learned from our parents, teachers and all of people who had some influence on us when we grew up. They were our post-signs pointing us to what was meaningful for them, or what they thought was meaningful in general, based on what society considered important in given generation. And from where they derived their sense of meaning in their life? Well, from their parents, teachers, priests and other influencers, and this connection goes back for as long as human mind can remember. This is how our societies were built in the past and still today, they function based on the exact same principle, so in vast majority, people live lives of other people’s meaning. This is so called a societal or collective conditioning where social dos and don’ts, as well as beliefs of our parents and family, friends with whom we grew up were imprinted in our psyche. These are foundations of the meaning you give to your life as an adult along with your own observations made along the way. There is no good or wrong here, it is as it is, you live your own personal truth seen through the veil of all accumulated beliefs that are now reflected back to you in the physical world.
Most of believes that are the basis of our perception dwell in subconscious mind, hence people are not even aware of their subconsciously held believe system. This can create many unwanted situations manifesting themselves in one’s life which may look like the whole world is against and one is a victim of circumstances.
Well, nope, it can certainly look like this but it is not so. We are all responsible for what we live since our outer world mirrors back to us our inner world. There is no other way around it, so stop looking outside of self and holding others responsible.
Everything what surrounds you is there to show you who you really are at this very moment. To identify your core believes held unconsciously just look at your relationships with your spouse, partner, kids, friends, co-workers, your boss, relationship with your own body – is it healthy or not so healthy, your relationship with money – are you tight about money or you are generous or greedy, worrying not having enough. How about your job, your relationship with your personal interests and hobbies – do you enjoy yourself, do you have a sense of fulfillment and joy when you submerge yourself in those activities that make your soul sing? Do you actually have in your life activities or hobby that make your soul sing, or is there an unoccupied empty space which makes you feel lonely and miserable? Question your every own idea and stream of thoughts that follow this reading and you start seeing an emerging pattern. All answers are within you and only you can uncover them. Listen to your inner voice that always speaks to you, tough first you have to unplug those earphones always pumping some noise in your ears, get off those smartphones and tablets which you mindlessly sweep on and on with your fingertips, staring at pretty much meaningless, unimportant trivia and chats. Get still and listen to your soul speaking to you, if you really want to know who or what is this being living inside your body. Get acquainted with your own self.
Check in with yourself what emerges within you, feelings, sudden emotions, thoughts passing by or insistently repeating themselves, and how this is showing in your life, do you always re-live certain situation with various people again and again, do you get agitated about the same thing with different people, are there any repeating patterns which you consider annoying regardless where you are at in terms of location, do you get stack often with your various projects, or in the traffic, a checkout counter closing just when you were about to pay, your wi-fi continuously suspending and dropping off … these are just few examples seemingly unrelated on the outside which are fueled by subconsciously held believe system. And please take note the list is not exhausted here. We live in many interwoven energy fields and we are energy ourselves, and so everything is interconnected, even if doesn’t look so from the human physical eye. Whatever occurrences you encounter in your life, remember that everything is always relevant.
What if I suggest here that you stop blaming outside circumstances and especially other people for all that you do not like in your life? What if you knew for sure, that the first step to a successful shift in your life is to start seeing what is not working and taking full ownership of it, without blaming another or self? Only then you re-gain self-empowerment for the simple reason that whatever you created that you are not happy with, you have the power to un-create it by making new choices from different level of consciousness and elevated perspective. This is only possible if you take back your personal power and own your impact on your life. Then things begin shifting, new patterns will emerge and new people will come your way. You are able to create what you really want by owning your full responsibility for self and detaching from whatever society or even your close circle is thinking what is right or wrong. Give your own personal meaning to your life. Drop the whole judgment of self and everything and everyone at once. Focus on how you in-vision your life to be at your best ability to imagine it. Imagination means a faculty of forming and holding a mental image or concept, which is the base for change in the energetical world we live in. The universe is the energy in motion. A little warning – do not get yourself into another trap here and start thinking ‘Universe will deliver to you your dream’ as many New Age teachings suggest. Nope, nothing won’t happen until you start cooperating with yourself and take actions. Be clear where you want to go from here so you uphold your end result in your inner vision of the heart, the final product of who you want to be. Do not force things or be untruth to yourself, let the vision take you in and the voice within you will guide you. The knowing will arise within you that you are on the path that you want to be.
The road will be bumpy at first, but before the smooth glide, the release of all what is not serving you must happen, otherwise there will be no space in your life for new circumstances to unfold.
There are many techniques and teachings how to get to your own inner wisdom from the soul and the one that I recommend to start with is really very simplistic. Lead your life from the heart, always check in with yourself what your heart is telling, sensing or feeling. Once you start listening and paying attention to your inner language, you will realize that you have whole new world within you, your intuitive guidance of your soul always readily available to you, waiting patiently hundreds or thousands of lifetimes till you awaken in this or in one of thousands to come new lifetimes. The higher dimensions of consciousness where your soul resides operate in no time reality, there is no time as human mind understands, so your soul is not in hurry to get where it is going in order to experience and express itself. The one who is loosing out is you in this embodiment living a miserable life and blaming the world for it. So change your focus from outside to inside, be persistent in your inner listening, make meditation your regular daily practice, and you will experience an opening in your life like never before (well, not that you remember from past lifetimes). Dare to soar in this life so don’t take my word for it and end your inspiration with ending of this article. Jump of the cliff and let your soul carry you.
Give yourself permission to fly high and enjoy life you deserve it!
