Before I use to have this belief, if you keep your outside world clean, then the inside will come together. I spent all this time cleaning, organizing and getting things done, but on the inside nothing seemed to change. It took me a really long time to understand I was doing everything backwards. First you have to start cleaning your mind, and then the outside world will come together. The only way to restore balance is to start within.
So many people are always in a rush to get things done, and are always trying to stay busy as much as possible. I began to understand this notion as an escapism from one self. The more you are trying to keep your self busy, the more you escape but then more trapped and frustrated you become.
In that type of cycle we are always looking for answers, why am I here, what should I do next, what is my purpose in life and so on and so fourth. Things are not clear, because we are keeping our mind clustered by trying to over accomplish our life.
I’ve learned that the best thing one can do, is to focus on one thing at a time and get it done with 150 percent effort, instead of 10 things with only 50 percent effort. This way we are aware of every single moment in our life and it’s much easier to balance out your energy.
I came to this conclusion while in meditation - ” The journey of our existence is the same for every soul, to enjoy the physical experience, to be in a complete awareness of your mind, and to effect others in a positive way “.
I stopped holding a belief in such thing as destiny, or a physical purpose. The reason being, is that I began to understand that our physical purpose comes from not what we are meant to do, but from what we love to do.
What we love to do, is what we are suppose do in our physical life. Terms such as destiny or purpose are just words that bring comfort, because it feels familiar, because everyone else says so.
But in reality we are all striving for the same thing, a higher existence, higher level of growth – progress. Then destiny becomes something you create on your own, as long as you progress and grow, everything is in your own hands.
We are all going to the same place, there is no need to rush. Relax, look around, open your eyes, learn, find your passion – this is what you meant to do to achieve progress.
The answers are always there. Don’t keep your self busy with things that are useless expenditure of energy. Think More, observe more.
