Did you ever think about how you live your life?
Are you surviving?
Or truly embracing life and living it?
So today I suggest we think about three things.
Number one ... are you just surviving?
Are you living from hand to mouth? Are you just struggling to get by?
Do you love what you do for a living?
Do you love your life as a whole?
Do you feel nurtured by the people around you - friends and family?
Are you happy with your job and income?
How do you feel about your home?
Do you just struggle to get by and survive without free time, and without freedom in general?
Ask yourself these questions, and know that
It may seem weird that our inner game creates our external circumstances, but it's true.
Our thoughts create our reality, and the more we know ourselves and own our emotions, the more authentic our lives will be - the more our lives will mirror our highest potential and most beautiful parts of our inner world.
The second thing I invite you to think about is if you're pretending to love your life.
I know it's a tough one, but hang in there. Sometimes we do this on autopilot. We don't realize we're pretending to love something we actually don't.
I'm not saying we should not appreciate our lives and be grateful for what we have. What I mean is we'll be much happier and fulfilled when we're honest with ourselves and take time to observe what pleases and enriches our lives, and what doesn't.
Sometimes we pretend to have a wonderful life, when deep inside what we've conquered or achieved, what we have built for ourselves in our paths, is not necessarily what our heart wants, and not what the core of our being wishes.
Sometimes we're living our lives to please others, or parts of our lives, anyway. As an example, we may choose a profession or job that makes our parents proud, or even our spouse proud, but not us.
There could be many other areas of life in which we're not really happy, but we pretend to be. A lot of people I see at Ranova are not even aware that they're leading a life to please others, and deep down they're not feeling as wonderful as they could be if they were living from the core of their being.
Some my third question today is ... are you actually living?
It's a kind of passion, a vibrant state of being in which everything makes sense for you.
Your efforts have a purpose, and you're not lazy about anything.
Do you often feel that way, or just sometimes? Or rarely?
And that's wonderful. If you feel that passionate, everyone around you feels it too. It's contagious and ripple effects on others, and you're probably inspiring people, whether you realize it or not.
And the prior cases of surviving or pretending are your case in the present moment, you can start changing now.
Start connecting to the truth of your being, and learning tools and ways to get out of "survival mode" or "pretend mode" so that you can live in life-connection.
