Want to Change Your Life
When do you change your life?
When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your
tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out “ENOUGH!
fighting and crying or struggling to hold on.” And, like a child quieting
down after a blind tantrum,your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once
or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes
you begin to look at the world from a new perspective. You begin to realize no one is going to take care of you and your interests like you will. Self pity will get you no where.
You realize that it is time to stop hoping and waiting for something
or someone to change,or for safety and security to
come galloping over the next horizon. Forget about retiring or taking the easy way out, there is no easy way out. You come to terms with the fact that
there aren’t always fairytale endings (or beginnings for that matter) and
that any guarantee of “happily ever after” must begin with you.Then a sense of serenity is born of acceptance. Get busy, there is plenty of time for resting after we pass from this reality.
you begin making your way through the”reality of today” rather than
holding out for the “promise of tomorrow.”You realize that much of who
you are and the way you navigate through life is, in a great part, a result
of all the social conditioning you’ve received over the course of a
lifetime,and you begin to sift through all the nonsense you were taught. Often times our dreams seem impossible, but after beginning the journey they only seem improbably and then suddenly they are inevitable.
Only then can you change your future and or your destiny. You finally decide it is up to you, no one, the government, your family and friends, no one can make your life change , but you. You are the only one who really knows what you want in life, you are the only one who knows what your dreams really are.
You can’t expect others to be in control of your happiness and success. You can’t expect obstacles to fall by the wayside, that is a part of success, overcoming obstacles. Of course as you progress along your path the obstacles will eventually fall away and the path will become clear.
That is the main crux of reaching enlightenment is learning that the obstacles to our success are only created by our self, no one else. By knowing what you want in life , and realizing it may not be the easiest path or the one we think we most desire, when your true path is found , the gate will open and you will enter inside your future. Be prepared, it may be challenging, but rewarding and well worth the effort spent in reaching your final destination.
If you are undecided about which path to take , look back over your life so far ,and see the general trend and theme you have been pursuing, not only in a career sense, but a spiritual sense as well. What are your passions? Many times this can be a clue as to what to do next. Look for deeper meaning other than earning a living.
The trials and tribulations in our life are sent to us for a reason, to make us strong and learn valuable lessons about life. Learn them wisely, feeling sorry for yourself does no one any good. One needs to be thankful for the learning experience and realize how much stronger they are for having survived that event.
Only then can we achieve our goals and reach happiness in life.
