With the ever changing times we’re living right now, that line of communication opened to all mythologies, all ancestors, all governments, and to everyone else, literally.
With this information overload we are experiencing right now, information coming from everywhere, there is a very strong sense of confusion that sometimes leads people to not take action or to take the wrong action. No wonder we’re living in record times of confusion, powerlessness, depression and anxiety.
Everyone wants your attention
But looking at the big picture of all of this noise from everyone, it’s actually good. It is good because in the process of hearing everyone, we will not want to hear anyone, we will learn to discern what we hear, and we will be responsible of what we hear.
In time we will no longer go following someone so blindly that in the process of paying attention to them we lose ourselves. In time, and I hope it’s soon for you; you’ll begin paying more attention to yourself.
Pay attention to your own voice
This does not mean you’re not going to follow ideas you resonate with. Yes, follow them, but follow them on your own terms. It’s fundamental you understand this since you’re the only one in control of your life.
I said above that the only and true way to be happy is to listen to you. You do this by going inward and truly listening yourself. This is very important. Your truths, your desires, your joys are all already inside of you. So, don’t try to evade this is step; there’s no other way around it but to go inward.
You can begin by taking 1 minute a day to be in silence with your eyes closed and ask yourself the following (in this order):
- What is the main thing that’s occupying my mind right now?
- How does that make me feel?
- How do I want to feel with respect to this thing?
- What action can I take right now to begin feeling this (better) way?
- How does thinking about taking this action make me feel?
Once you know your most pressing thoughts, how they make you feel, how you want to feel and what good feeling action to take, you’ll begin to feel better. Try it now, it only takes 1 minute.
Other questions you can ask yourself are: Does this thought or action empower me? Does it make my life easier? Does it feel natural or does it feel like I’m fighting with the Universe? Does it feel like it’s the next step I should take? Depending on your answers and how they feel to you, you will know what to do next.
It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” –Jiddu Krishnamurti
By the way, the "Should" in the title of this post is a pun intended... hope you got it because you "should" only do whatever the heck you want ;)
