The mind is a powerful tool, one in which we can be in control of or allow to control us. With the advances in technology we are exposed to more information then ever in the history of man/woman. Although this is great in relation to stretching humanity beyond the usage of 5% of our brain, it also brings on a whole new challenge to the mental mind.
Stability and balance are shattered when we take in too much information. If a person is not stable in their sense of self; the ability to discern, manage stress, and stand in their own power, the “noise” can be deafening.
How many times a day do you question the choices you make?
How often do you listen to someone else’s message while your gut is telling you something different?
When you speak up and share your thoughts, does your heart race or do you speak with strength?
Are your persuasive skills based on control or positive guidance for optimal results?
Is it a challenge to be around difficult people?
Do you feel empowered when leaving a conversation, or do you wish you had done/said something different?
Does your mind go in circles and focuses on the past?
How often do you go into the would have, could have, should have cycle?
These are just some questions to ponder when considering how the mind can be our best friend or our worst enemy.
Thinking for ourselves gives us the power to be in control. The world is an open book of opportunity, to explore and gain wisdom of what we have created as a collective. To rise above the noise is a gift you can give to yourself. Clarity of the mind leads to creativity. This evolves into a confidence that is rooted in the depths of your being.
To find your passion…..
To discover your life purpose…..
To engage in a meaningful and fulfilling life…..
All lead to joy and happiness, a mind that is seeking the good in the world. Through the quieting of the mental chatter and building on what is true for you, the external does not have as much pull to take you where you may have resistance.
Life is short, these days even more important to value each moment as if it is your last. Tame the mind to be conscious, aware and knowledgeable. Understanding your life experiences from the perspective of “what’s next?”, you will be looking towards the future with excitement and wondering about the possibilities of what is yet to come.
Living life to the fullest takes practice in being part of the world, as an observer, then as a participator. Celebrate your successes, learn from your failures and embrace every experience as an opportunity to learn something new.
To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders
