How often have we told ourselves that we should do more in life? How often have we thought about changing our life circumstances and never acted upon that impulse? Or maybe we’ve thought about all the reasons why we can’t do better for ourselves. When you really start to think of it, there certainly seems to be a mountain of difficulties stacked up against us. From poor wages to poor relationships or bad financial situations we are certainly good at doing one thing, making excuses!
This mindset is so troubling that it has been the constant driving force for why our civilization and planet are in distress. We bare an immense weight as humans. You may think your life is insignificant but the truth is that you carry the same purpose that everyone carries.
Our purpose, although vast in definition is ultimately the same. This is why we all have a sense of belonging to something larger than oneself. When we can begin to identify this oneness and learn to appreciate our fellow humans without judgment, we can evolve into the beings we are intended to be. We are spiritual in nature. We influence our reality at the level of our oneness. Through conscious focus and attention to your mind you can discover how your mind works. When we listen to our thoughts we are the observer and as the observer we are then free to either accept or reject the thoughts we are having. Consciously choosing our moment by moment thoughts is the path to a life that only dreams are made of.
When we tell ourselves that we should do more in life or we ridicule ourselves because of all the difficult situations facing us, why don’t we simply choose not to have those thoughts? It really is a choice we can each make. It’s not even hard to do. Try listening to your thoughts asking yourself “why am I having these thoughts” and then simply dismiss or accept the thoughts.
