We Can Deal With Stimulus In A Conscious Aware Manner

  • Reading time:4 mins read

Fear is a natural response of the body to any outside invasion or outside stimulus. We might be sitting there in peace, happy and ecstatic to be alive. The world might seem to be right where it’s supposed to be. Everything is exactly right. And then all of a sudden, disaster strikes.

Or at least we think that disaster has struck.

Everything is exactly the same in our outer world. Nothing has really changed. Every stone, every molecule, every breath is exactly the same. But we have changed on the inside.

Hundreds of chemical reactions are going on in the brain, to change who we are, and where we are going. We are having an almost automatic reaction, based on fear, to the stimulus, whatever it might be.

It Is Your Aversion To Suffering That Hurts More (Love Suffering)

When I am out in the world, I feel like a sophisticated, adult, mature, and generally well-rounded person. I feel good. Awesome. Exceptional at times, even. But, as soon as I visit my parents, through no fault of their own, but all because of the ideas and prejudices that I have cultivated in my mind palace, I feel like I am a child again, who doesn’t know what she’s doing, and has no clue where she’s going in life. I will go in, knowing my goals, and aspirations, and having everything set up perfectly in my head. And then I’ll come out feeling like the biggest failure ever. Of course, this has all to do with the fact that my parents (thankfully) have really high aspirations and standards for me, standards that perhaps, I shall never ever reach in my life. But, that means, that I always keep on working hard, pushing myself, and my boundaries to get higher and higher. This…

‘Why Are You Living A Shitty Mediocre Life?’ Everyone Else Around Me Is Doing The Same.

  • Reading time:12 mins read

Now that I have been living my ideal life for the past few months, I have been thinking a lot about why I didn’t do this earlier.

Was I not aware that it was possible to live my ideal life? Did I not know that the possibility existed? Or was I just content living a shitty, mediocre life because everyone else around me was living a shitty, mediocre life as well?

In my humble opinion, no matter what excuse I come up with for being ignorant for the first 33 years of life, they all do not suffice. I always knew lots of people who were living amazing awesome lives that I was extremely jealous of. I knew people were doing it.

But in my head for some bizarre reason, this amazing life was possible for everyone else but not for me.

Is that a thought that goes through your head as well?

Do not fear my friend. I’m here to let you know, not only that this debilitating thought exists in everyone’s head, but I am going to tell you, that your IDEAL life is just over on the other side of this miserable thought.

So let’s do this thing. Let’s break down this thought to its essence and see that the monster that it portrays is just a tiny little adorable Tasmanian Devil who can’t really do anything to us. (more…)

Surrender To The Universe And All Will Come

  • Reading time:10 mins read

In the past few months, I have been practicing mindfulness in a big way. I have been able to stay present in the moment because I have been enjoying building my business and all the other things I have been up to so very much. The absolute perfect side-effect of being mindful is surrendering to the goodness of the universe. It wasn’t something I expected to happen, as I was an absolute control freak in my past life. But meditation, mindfulness, and creative risks have all caused me to become more open to the universe, and its plan for me.

The Universe Loves Us All

Surrendering to the perfectness of the universe isn’t easy. But it starts off with a simple belief. ‘The Universe loves me, and wants to take care of me.’ This simple thought is hard for most people to comprehend. Most people walk around with the perception that this is a hard world to live in, that the world is out to get them, and if they want to survive, they need to fight this world. We go into life everyday thinking it is a battlefield, when in actuality it is a beautiful dance.

The mindset shift that is required is crucial in this case. You cannot think that the universe hates you and is out to get you, and still believe that the universe’s plan for you is going to work. I hope this makes sense to you. Let’s expand further.

Control Freaks Beware

The trend of controlling behaviour is quite alarming. OCD and its parallel behaviours are becoming quite common among people nowadays. This world increasingly feels out of control and scary. In order to deal with these feelings, we try to control ourselves and our environments as much as possible. We try to plan, analyze, attack, and accumulate to the max. Every little thing has to be controlled. (more…)
