We all want a successful life, and most of our lives will go figuring out the formula for ourselves. In this process we will try what others are using, what they’re suggesting, what we may want to work for ourselves, until one day, we will have the epiphany and strike that perfect balance and know it, once and for all.
I have been in the phase of exploration since what feel like forever. And I have found something that brings me calm now. There was always a clash between the world that I live in, ( we all live in) and the spiritual side of things. The real life is the one after death, and while we are here for a split second, our lives on earth seem to be the most important to us. Anyway, sometimes we don’t know what’s bothering us, and what is causing us to be in a state of unrest, until we somehow come across a solution or experience that makes it all clear.
What I have also observed is that the more we dwell on figuring this out, the sooner we are able to formulate our way of life which will bring us eternal satisfaction. So if you start this process in your teenage, you may figure out life by early twenties, and I know people who have done that. At times I feel it’s a whole scam of science that makes teenagers this helpless, hormone driven, and irresponsible breed. The world should be patient with them, no doubt, because its a time of major change, but it’s also a great time to explore oneself the right way. At 29, I feel stupid to have lost such a long period of my life and only now realize about myself, things I could’ve easily figured out earlier. You can only feel bad, at a point like such.
As a parent, I am not going to give the gift of pondering, to my children. Mindful pondering, and exploration of ones personality, skills, potential. And not just academic, but spiritual. A soul that is pure, will find it’s meaning faster than one contaminated by sins, worldly desires, and rubbish. In such situations experience may not hold a positive place.
I guess the point of this post was; that there IS a formula and the sooner we figure it out, the more calm and focused we will be. And no matter how shitty we may be feeling, there is always a way out, and there’s always a solution. Having a formula will help us be calm, and check ourselves if and when we are feeling anxious, and resolve our problems quickly.
