Life seems more complex now than ever, don’t you think!
Why is it that we still feel so isolated in a time that the world is so advanced, we tend to shy away from the world ever so often. Taking shelter in our rooms just to over submerge ourselves with work, to make the days seem effortless and inexistent. It seems that any free time we are granted is wasted by escaping reality to stare at a square on the wall. Even when we are presented the opportunity to go out to social events, we tend to sit down and give our full attention towards our cell phones for the entire sitting! Living a so called virtual reality opposed to enjoying each and every moment in the company of our loved ones.
Did we simply just miss the mark on this one or have we just adapted so well towards a continuous routine of emotionless happiness. We have so many choices now than ever before, that we tend to become self-hypnotized and continually agonize ourselves over analyzing everything, instead of accepting what we have and being grateful for it!
Our children go to school, just to notice that other children have better things than they do, as a result they learn jealousy, “why do they have that and we don’t”. Others start participating in the art of approval seeking and egotistic behaviors. Bullying others trying to supplement a false sense of superiority and acceptance. Measuring up to a social norm that is consistently being fed to them via a negatively influenced misconception of empowerment. We pay less attention to our families and children, caught up in the rat race we call society. Living up to false standards of happiness and achieving wealth. We become so focused and develop a so called tunnel vision towards achieving our goals, that we lose sight on the basic necessities of life… Love.
We tend to complain when our children start their mischief behavior. Mixing with wrong crowds as a direct result of our negligence, a desperate cry for help in hope to acquire our attention and approval. We continue to expose the world of illusion onto them, being the television or social media in hope that it will keep them occupied until we complete our days’ work, which never seems to end. They learn directly from this world of illusion, accepting all the negative behaviors exposed towards them tailored for entertainment, opposed to real life lessons and experiences. And who can blame them, how are they to know the difference!
Instead of us embracing our children, to teach them lessons of the past, right from wrong, have them contribute to the household and work together. We substitute our ever so limited schedules and leave it up to the world of entertainment to mold their minds and life lessons that will carry them throughout their entire lives! A crucial learning cycle we have all gone through!
Our marriages start to fall apart, due to a lack of communication, affection and quality time. Have we really forgotten to communicate, or have we just chosen the easiest route of escape in this exact moment of time.
We continue to hold on to all the little things and let them build up, simply because it would take too much time explaining, not to mention the predicament we would be left dealing with. But Little by little they fill to the brim, until we cannot contain them no more. And like a disease it starts to spreads and infects our perception on the other person. We forget to show our gratitude towards our significant others, and express how we truly feel towards them. We become so distant and cold towards emotions, believing that they are nothing more than a liability and serve no purpose within the world we are now living in. Eventually we adapt a “me against the world” attitude, which will eventually leave us lonely and questioning our ways in time to come! Always leaving the important things till tomorrow, forgetting that tomorrow never comes. However in time these egotistic behaviors eventually take the throne of our perception that mold our realities and suppress any behaviors that threaten its position.
We revert to our cell phones for a quick dopamine fix, with any spare time we get. Just to escape from reality, but even that world is over rated. Children seeking acceptance and validation through social media platforms, continuously checking for likes and followers trying to fit into a world that has been off the rails from the very beginning. No wonder depression has inclined dramatically over the past decade! We have all become addicted, slaves of our egos.
Our children take favor towards idols presented on the screen, and story lines that has been written entitled to trigger certain emotions that leaves us intrigued and wanting more. That we choose to accept this over annualized plot as real life, and learn these so called “life lessons” from the screen of illusion until we subconsciously reinforce the truth, and as a result those are the emotions we feed off!
We shy away from the world, when it becomes too hard and confusing, escaping reality in hope that it will all be forgotten. However in time, this will just reinforce the satisfaction of running away in a time of need. What lessons are we teaching the young, we must never forget, that we are the role models of the future!
We have been submerged within this reality of social validation from the second we are born, and many of us fear to question the norm, as we may be criticized over it! We as humans fall victim ever so often to what is expected of us, but can I ask, what is normal?
That normal is a common belief a specific social circle share, it reinforces your connection towards the pack! Many of us don’t even question the behaviors we adapt on a social network. That we suppress our statements and leave our voices un heard, in fear that we will be criticized or labelled weird or even delusional. But are you the one that is delusional or is it the society we are living in! That what is normal to you is not what is normal for me, and it is extremely visible throughout world cultures and traditions.
What we must remember is, what are the reasons that are driving us to achieve our greatness within the first place? Is it to provide a better future for your family, or to be financially independent? Is it for love and acceptance, or is it for happiness! We should always revisit our motivations and justify our commitments. Some of us are too so focused on achieving our goals that we tend to make the very thing we wanted to strengthen worse. It is always a good reminder to revisit our initial motives and make sure we are still on track, that it is so easy to lose sight of them.
A practice that serves me wonders is to keep a reminder close by, if it’s a picture of your family on your desk at work to remind you that you may be working too much. It will serve as a gentle reminder that it may be time to go home and spend some quality time with the family that is well over due. If your goal is it to be financially free then it may serve you wonders to spend a weekend treating yourself to an enjoyable experience. It may just reinforce a stronger desire of motivation within you, and further remind you why you are doing all this in the first place.
Also make sure you keeping on track with your health, ever so often, life becomes so hectic, we forget about ourselves. Because at the end of the day, what are all the riches in the world worth, if we can’t enjoy them!
Make sure to spend your time wisely and in the company of the people that matter the most, doing the things you love. Because after all life is not forever, hence why we should make the most of it every single moment we have! It’s a privilege to live let’s all embrace our gift, one moment at a time.
That life is amazing, but don’t let it catch you by surprise at the finish line.
Please feel free to leave your comment, I wish you all a wonderful day.
Until next time, Take Care for Now!
Throughout history millions have undertaken their own personal endeavors of self-realization, and even after three million years of existence the human makeup is something that still remains a complete mystery.
This phenomenon of self-discovery has taken form in many trails from personal journeys, religion to science and philosophy. And still, we haven’t even started to scratch the surface of understanding. If we only knew what powers we actually possessed, and how to properly use them, one could only imagine Endless opportunities that are instantly presented.
The Human race possesses the world most elite technologies and systems within its creation. It has been witnessed throughout evolution, that the human race continuously becomes more aware and advanced. Adapting and cultivating such innovation to suit an ever changing world, with the exact same resources our ancestors had. We already possess everything we need, within!
Ancient scriptures throughout the world describe of the enlightenment many have experienced. The possibilities and the flaws it can bring, due to an abundant or limited understanding. But like all divine understandings and power, when in the wrong hands of knowing, can be catastrophic far beyond measure! Let’s face it, it’s not like we were given an instruction manual on how to be human!
Many individuals have expressed their struggles towards anxiety to me, seeking advice and guidance towards the matter. Anxiety affects 1 in 13 humans worldwide. It is a common experience, so please do not feel as if you are any different because of it. I personally believe that anxiety is created due to a limiting understanding of our internal functions and human instincts.
See all humans are created with a default state of survival. A default state that is naturally programed within us upon birth. This is not learnt, this is our creation! Without thought, we are born too subconsciously see, breathe, and have our hearts beat. Our body’s respond subconsciously to all we need and all that is required to survive.
We are programed with subconscious reminders of discomfort that remind us to take action. When we experience a feeling of hunger, we know we need food. When we experience thirst, we know we are dehydrated and when we become tired, we know we need sleep and rest etc. As for anxiety, we experience a discomfort, reminding us there is a misalignment somewhere within.
Humans are the complete package, with no flaws. The human race is so unique that it can even self-heal itself. When one get cut or weakens a muscle, our bodies subconsciously heal themselves. This is how advance we all are, mind-blowing right! However with so many elements and internal systems, it is easy to see how one can become confused and even mislead.
We tend to change our entire understanding and practices so easily, via mere misunderstandings! A minor disconnect can send our worlds down a spiral of confusion and misalignment. A minor disconnect from our default state that is!
Anxiety is a great example, generalized by a limited understanding and association to the human survival system – The fight or flight response.
The fight or flight response is a part of our survival system, our human instincts. A default state within our makeup. This magnificent system, is here to support us in a time of danger.
The fight or flight response is activated subconsciously, when we are exposed to a life threatening situation, or when our lives are in danger. When this response is activated, the brain sends out an SOS message. Which activates our sympathetic nervous system (The stress system) and releases a range of hormones and neurochemicals, adrenaline being one of them. The body simply goes into survival mode.
The body actively resynchronizes the amount of energy being displaced to other systems within our bodies that may not be of assistance in a time of threat. It disengages many systems that won’t be required on a short term basis, such as the digestion system and redirects the energy towards more promising survival systems, such as increasing the amount of blood flow being transited throughout our body’s and muscles. This is all to get us ready to either fight or flight (Flee)
Our bodies are made to survive. All our natural internal systems and elements are made to support our survival, not to sabotage it!
I like to understand the fight or flight response in a simpler and less scientific way. I feel that the fight or flight response is engaged, due an unexpected surge of energy trying to be processed all at once. An unexpected shock to the body, via an event that was not intended. This then causes our brain to go into an overdrive, which causes us to overheat. Hence why our hearts start to rise, palm sweat and all that fun stuff. That when we experience an intense and unexpected situation, it causes an overload of emotions and thoughts to be processed at the same time. And before you can think of a solution to decipher the situation, we go into a panic mode. It’s basically a surge of power getting sent to the brain, and because it cannot process it all at once it reverts such a response. A response of survival, to fight or flee the situation.
However with that said, the fight or flight response can be activated prematurely. We can short circuit this response, by an over load of negative thoughts and intense emotions. A false belief that is reinforced internally, having us believe it is real. Generally when we make false assumptions to believe our lives are in danger. “Huston we have a problem, Mayday, Mayday initiate the Fight or Flight!”
There is so much energy trying to be processed at one time, that our circuit gives up and crash. We become so invested within the feelings of fear and future projection, which cause us to hone in on all those negative feelings, to further reinforce this illusion of pain and imprisonment.
We continue to focus on all the elements of discomfort within us such as; loss of breathe, overdrive of adrenaline, constriction in the throat region, etc. And because we focus on it so intensely, we feel the full affects even if there not present. We self-manifest these feelings within to subconsciously activate its responses.
We tend to stop exercising, distance ourselves from loved ones, subconsciously tense the body, avoid sleeping and even stop eating. All these elements then start to take a spiraling effect.
We focus so much on the effects, we lose sight of the cause. And many of us start to adjust our lives in fear of the next episode, further reinforcing its truth. However when we obsess over the affects, instead of the cause, we are just adding to this viscous cycle, that all revert their own negative reactions!
Let’s break a range symptom down and see the underlying causes, and how they are all interweaved together!
Firstly it is important to always remember that all commands are initiated through the brain, and influenced by thought. Initially, one becomes influenced by a train of negative thoughts and amplified emotions attached towards them. Generally via a horrible experience that reverted the fight or flight response previously. We short circuit a response in the brain.
We attach many senses towards the negative thoughts, and divert all our focus towards our discomfort until the feelings become present. Now the slightest feeling, is amplified due to our intense focus.
This fear spirals our hearts to beat, and our adrenaline to activate. Now we have an intense feeling we are trying to decipher within our minds. We start to take short gasps of air, adding to the discomfort, caused by our internal fear and now our bodies are in overdrive.
Further, as we are not eating correctly, the body try’s to scavenge all the excess energy remaining within this deficiency we have caused, in order to deal with this disconnect. However our bodies are so tired due to a lack of sleep, and all the previous energy we have invested in worrying and tensing our bodies throughout the day, which it goes into a state of shock and panic, activating such a response. Well done, you have now manipulated your brain in believing you are in a life threatening situation.
See when one stops eating, due to a false belief of chocking, they are causing a deficiency of nutrients and energy throughout the body. And without food, how the body is expected to function properly and feel healthy. Further add a lack of sleep and weary muscles caused from an ongoing internal strain to the muscles. And as if that wasn’t enough, continue to add the discomfort of feeling tired and worn down caused from a lack of sleep. See how the body is now feeding from a feast of negativity and fear, to activate the fight or flight!
It is most important to understand that our internal make-up is made for survival. For one to regain control and focus of their thoughts and emotion is the key. Our internal system will do the rest, to self-heal itself. Remember that all commands are initiated through the brain and influenced upon your thoughts and emotions.
For one to list the process and understand the steps that are initiated and influenced is crucial, it will set you free.
A very common teaching to relieve anxiety, is for one to become present and pay attention to their breathing. As our bodies are processing so many thoughts and emotions at once, it causes our whole system is running in overdrive, we need to bring it down to optimum working level, and redirect our focus onto something else. The rest will take care of itself. Understand that we are in no harm, and that it’s caused by a daydream of false beliefs. Do not invest within the feelings, instead focus on the cause to understand its illusion.
I have come to find, that the easiest way to escape from the illusion of anxiety, is to realign ones focus.
Focus is the kryptonite, to anxiety!
That our current environment and situations shape us, we become all that we are exposed to. Hence why when one feels as though their living within a hell, the only reassurance they are receiving from the world is negative. Understand that your entire focus is on this misalignment, so we must refocus our energy on our hearts desires and positivity.
If that is falling in love, deciding to move into foreign territories, getting a new job, etc. Find something you love to do or start something new that will take your focus away from the darkness and into the light.
When we redirect our focus to a situation that will impact us and offered more of an emotional and physical impact toward that we are currently focusing on. It will dilute the effect of anxiety. See if I put you in a plane and made you skydive, your entire focus will be in the experience of free falling, it is a completely new experience. It impacts you on a direct emotional level yet physical level, and as we know that which affects us and uses more senses is where our focus goes. And if you focus on positivity, that is what will grow.
Don’t give value to the false beliefs that you are different or ill, believe that your body will self-heal itself as it was created to do. Surrender to the thoughts and false beliefs and know that they cannot harm you. As one dreams to wake up safe and normal, once we realize we are living in a self-manifested day dream, we too will wake up safe and normal.
I hope I have given you more insight towards this topic, and thank you all for reaching out. Please feel free to leave your comments, Stay safe and always well.
Until Next Time, Take Care.
There are times in our lives that are wondrous and times of disappointment. That life is like a battle of tides, highs and lows. It is only when we start to acknowledge the discomfort, do we then become sea sick.
When times get me down, I always reflect on the teaching of free will. See our creator has blessed us all with this divine gift of free will. A gift for us all to choose and act upon any circumstance without distrains, and only truly questionable by us.
That you and I have both received this divine gift, all for our own use and judgement. Second to none, and nobody else in this world has the right to question it!
However there are times in our lives that creep up on us to flip the blanket of comfort from beneath our feet, causing us to fall head first. Usually a time of emotional confession and an overdrive of thought patterns. A time we are left questioning ourselves and the individuals we are, due to a false or over annualized representation, and perception from external eyes.
We are left believing the harsh words and rationalized content expressed about us, during a highly confusing and negatively fuelled situation we are dealt with from the outside world. A false and bias belief that affects us on an emotional level, amplifying the leverage of negative emotions, manipulating our state and then justifying its truth via the bombardons of energy we attach to these false belief systems.
We all have those individuals that we have emotionally connected ourselves to and interpreted them as our own. Those we consistently revolve our lives around, to the point we have infused them within our own personal journeys. Which is not a bad thing as such, but a lot of times we can become delusional and create a false perception of the circumstances and feelings at hand. Even though we consciously know that these certain individual serve us no good, we continue to manipulate these false beliefs and only take the good out of it, Ignoring the negativity even when the scales have tipped 10 to 1.
I have many individuals that written into me expressing their heartache towards loved ones distancing away, to only leave us with such a regret and false beliefs, that we are the solitary cause of their own personal dilemmas.
This is where this teaching of free will is so powerful to understand. See when these significant individuals make the decision to distance themselves, they actively choose to do it for themselves. They have made a conscious decision, not to invest anymore of their time within trying to amend and secure the relationships at hand. This is something we do not have the right to control nor change. This is their free will in action.
But to remember, that we must always express ourselves and put our hearts on the line, is all that we can do within these moments. To know that the choice is there for them to consider and make, Nice and Clear. It’s simply out of our hands.
See, for one to truly express their internal feelings, to the point that they are satisfied with their efforts, sets us free and enables us to let go of the burning coal of regret and anger that will be hold deep within us. We must stay true to ourselves.
A teaching I have incorporated, throughout my path in life and that truly holds a special meaning to me, as I hope that all the amazing individuals who are reading can also find its significance within it, is;
Don’t waste your time explaining yourself to others, because at the end of the day, you are the only one left explaining yourself to YOU!
Express yourself, within the situation, but do not go on explaining yourself for your actions as you are the only one at fault, and the one left to pick up the pieces.
Understand that we all play apart in a partnership, this is why communication is so important. But it always takes two individuals, to make it work, Not just one.
See when we embrace this saying, we can really eliminate all future regrets “I could have done this or I could have said that” See a regret is only created when we are not satisfied with our efforts.
Let me repeat this again, Regret Is Only Created When One Is Not Satisfied With Their Efforts.
To know we could have done or said more, will leave us explaining the situation and our action to no one but ourselves in time to come. Remember to express yourself fully, and you will be sure to release the burden of any future regrets.
Acknowledge that living unhappily and continue to do so, is not always healthy for us. Like a disease it will continue to consume us the more we hold onto it.
Keep in mind that, to try and change a person or their decision based on your own personal judgement, is an act of selfishness. Would we like it if somebody took our free will away from us and imprisoned us in a world of control! To think we are here, not for our own preference but for the sorrow of another, is not right and it will eventually take its toll on us in the future.
We are all great, we can do anything we set our minds to, that our life is a magical gift and we shouldn’t waste a minute of it in denial nor regret. After all our time on this earth is not forever, Hence why we should embrace each and every moment of it.
That the more we focus on the problems, the more we will start to see flaws, even if they are not there.
As humans, we tend to look for the missing pieces in others, not understanding that we have to find them within ourselves. That people only guide us to the place where we can discover it from within, not the other way around.
It is only natural we reflect the cause of such a situation on us, when really everyone lives there own experiences from within their own beliefs.
Don’t corrupt your self-image from others infected thoughts or interpretation of you. They do not have that right, yet don’t hold the power to do so.
We don’t have to dilute our own self morals for other because they are misled or have a limited understanding. We keep our stance and keep the posture of goodness within us.
Know that you create your own love within yourself. We are all truly amazing people and we all obtain that special spark of uniqueness deep within.
If someone is an honest friend or holds a significance to us, they will always be back. This is not our burden to keep, it is a burning coal that they must learn to release.
So remember to always express yourself and your intentions, This is important.
To always show others how we feel. But most importantly, do not lose sight of the fact that if we consistently keep on persuade someone to forgive us, is not the honest approach either. It is something they should feel and understand the value within. That’s how we can filter the true honest individuals within our lives, and let the others fly free. We could have 100 friends, but remember the ones that come back are the golden eggs worth hatching.
We all deserve the best in our existence because were all amazing. I wish you a world of happiness and love.
Please feel free to leave your comments.
Until next time, Take care.
Apple, One of the world’s largest multinational technology corporations, originally operated out of a basic home garage. That’s right, and look at them now!
Steve Jobs, expressed a very insightful truth, when he stated ““Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you”.”
Take a minute to let this statement sink in, and whist you’re doing so, start to look around your environment and really appreciate everything in your sight.
From the simple; Pens, Cutlery, Clothing, even the bracelets you’re wearing. To the complex; Medicine, science, technology, mechanics. This was all created by the human race. Someone just like you and I.
Think of your idols, from super athletes to superstars, they were once children. And yes, they are somebody’s relatives and siblings as well. We are all faced with the same struggles on a daily basis, because at the end of the day, were all humans.
Explain to me, how these specific individuals can do something amazing and you can’t?
When we start to embrace Steve jobs teaching, it begins to ignite a spark of hope and intrigue within us. That we are all made from the same fabric, see we all have a mind, body and soul, we all feel emotions and process thoughts, don’t we. No one is truly smarter or better than another. It is how we choose to use our time that really come to show!
See we are not born with talent, talent is created once one becomes aware and intrigued by a certain skill. Then by continuous understanding, practice and willingness to learn. The skill is then developed into talent. Talent is what a skill becomes after its mastered!
There is such a misconception around talent. Many of us tend to use it as an excuse, instead of trying to understand what it’s all about, and recognize how to utilize its power. It’s easier to disregard something, when it seems hard and confusing. But if we only knew it was this easy all along!
We cultivate our own skills to create talent, by becoming aware and honing in on all its minuet skills and elements that are generally not noticed so evidently. It’s only when one starts to consciously notice and actively pays attention to it, do the patterns start to surface.
With continuous practice, we generally start to create our own unique style towards that skill, and that’s when things start to become fun. When we really start to focus and put all our energy into our desires, do we reach to achieve greatness! After all, the effort is always put in, behind the curtains, the presentation that is revealed to all, is only the celebration of our achievements.
One may say, if we can master talents, then there must be a way to advantage this resource we possess? And this absolutely correct, Let me explain.
When one want to learn a desired skill, we must understand the knowledge and basis of it first. That there is never one way to skin a cat, as they say! You must simply understand what suits you.
Many times, you can take the time to seek an understanding from others, to help you recognize their process. However there will be times that you don’t agree with them, which is fine. If something doesn’t work for you, don’t be discouraged, this is only their process that works for them, not you.
Remember, that you know yourself better than anyone else. Trust me!
One way to utilize your prior knowledge, is to think of a skill you have already mastered in the past and see how it had served you. This will give you a head start.
See when one earns a degree, they did not just learn the knowledge of that subject, No! They learnt a range of useful skills within its process. They learnt, Patience, how effort pays off, being on time and the consequence. They learnt sacrifice, talking in front of large crowds during presentations, being social, etc. These elements are all important within our success. There is never one element that creates success, there a many! And how you choose to integrate them, is all up to you. We create our own flawless approach, all on our own.
Once you understand this, you can continue to advantage your situations. That there is never lost time, only time used poorly and time used efficiently.
We learn something every moment of our existence, how much we learn and obtain, is up to us!
Let’s say you are a mother and you want to work in the corporate world, now that your children are grown up. You can use your skills that you learnt during motherhood, to advantage your position within the organization, by altering your learning style to suit yourself.
It’s the way we choose to process and retain the information that can serve real benefit to us. You can process the information in a way you have already mastered in the past, by relating it towards an already acquired skills.
See during motherhood, you would have learnt a wide range of skills that you can incorporate into your corporate position. Such as; scheduling re-occurring activities for the kids, bed times, keeping the house hold clean, managing young kids and tutoring. All these skills can be transitioned into the corporate world as well, such as scheduling meetings, managing activity’s, introducing processes to keep the workplace safe and neat, etc.
Now let’s take it to another extreme, say you were an auto mechanic learning to become a doctor. You could relate certain parts of the body to an engine. This may help you remember the concept of how the body works. “Humans drink water to keep hydrated, as a car requires water to avoid overheating.” See how we can integrate our past skills to advantage us in the now, in all we do. And see how you made your own style of it.
If you relate a complex subject into something you have already mastered you are sure to have it remembered easier. Remember, It’s not the smartest individuals that change the world, it’s the most Driven and persistent. Or as Charles Darwin said, the most adaptable.
So always remember that the odds are truly in our favour 1 to over 7 billion, the evidence is right in front of us all, and it always has been.
Use these teachings as a constant reminder of truth. That we are all connected through, the six degrees of separation, or should I say the 3 degrees of separation, all we have to do is Ask, Seek and Knock, because, Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you.
Please feel free, to leave any comments you may have, Take care for now.
If we never ask, we will never know!
Jesus, left us with the Golden Fleece to success, a teaching so simple, yet often over looked.
We seem to take a lot of teachings for granted, simply because we don’t take the time to acknowledge them, and honestly understand them. We don’t ask for others opinions, we don’t seek for explanations and we sure do not knock for help.
We can avoid a lot of un-necessary heartaches with minimal effort.
Stress can be reduced, mistakes can be avoided, and not to mention how much time we could potentially save (Time that we can never get back) just by asking a simple question.
The thought alone, not to ask, and live with a regret of never knowing, far out ways the disappointments, we experience within that very moment.
Now that’s a huge consequence, is it not!
But to make sure, before we ask another, we must ask ourselves and acknowledge, what it is we wish to obtain. To be clear with our intent, eliminate all confusion and possibility’s for errors. Remember that silly questions, will receive silly answers!
How is one supposed to support you, if you do not know what you want in the first place?
You just open the door of headache and disappointment onto yourself. As we said before, that every equal action, will result in a greater reaction of the same thing!
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”
This lesson is so accurately structured, it is basically stepped out for us in the exact sequence it was intended to be undertaken. It amazes me, every time I think of it!
Let get straight into it.
When you’re thirsty, you actively Ask, Seek and Knock to find water. Your life depends on it, a matter of Life or death. Silly question really!
Understanding the Sequence of how this lesson was written, is so beneficial to us, that once we grasp it, we will be left questioning ourselves, “how was I ever so blind.”
There is a reason why knocking is not listed first within the lesson.
Let me explain, by asking for water first, you are expressing your intent for what you want, you’re acknowledging and accepting it within yourself, and further informing another being on your intent. Nice and clear you engage yourself and others for their help and support. Appreciate the fact, that other have a resource of knowledge within their experience of life, they may already know where you could find water. And as a result, your chances of survival are dramatically increased, and for that complete. They have simply shortcut the process for you. See how the lesson, teaches us the shortest path to success, from the very beginning.
Amazing, Coincidence I think not!
But let’s say, they cannot help, you will start to engage the second step in the teaching, which is seek, You will start to seek for either more people to ask (Shortest path) or go in search for it yourself, for all you know it may be closer that you thought.
However if you do not succeed in seeking, you will then start to engage the last step of the teaching, which is knock, in other words, expand and seek outside your comfort zone to open opportunity’s to obtain your desire.
Ask people close to you, Family, friends, colleagues, people you’re comfortable around.
Seek, Actively Seek for it, around your current environment, search for clues in hope it’s closer than you think, seek for more people to ask, and Knock, expand your resources, open opportunities, ask someone you don’t know for help, engage various resources, such as technology and knock on the door of new experiences, get outside of your comfort zone, new experiences expose you to new circumstances and new people.
Realise that by asking a question, seeking an answer and even knocking on the door, are all forms of acting upon our desires intentions, a conscious decision, you are making within yourself, to act upon your desired intentions.
But don’t be fooled, Remember that making a choice to act (Actively Ask, Seek and Knock) and making a choice, not to act are both choices we are making. If you choose not to do anything at all, you’re still choosing to stay stagnant within the circumstances you’re currently experiencing. You accept your current fate. And time will eventually reveal the same outcomes.
When you’re thirsty you actively Ask, Knock and seek to find water, your life depends on it, and the consequence of not acting on it, is suicide. So when we choose to stay stagnant, when our lives are in a time of need, be a need of love, happiness or achieving you hearts dreams and desires. We are simply playing Russian roulette with them, waiting for all your opportunity’s to soon come to an end.
Remember to not make a choice is the choice of accepting our current circumstances.
Is our happiness really that priceless, when it’s comes free of charge, Change is free.
Really look into how special this teaching is, and the wealth of resource we open upon us, we don’t have to travel far from home to see the truth in it, let’s reflect in within ourselves for a minute.
We all have been living in this world for a substantial amount of time already,
Let’s say you are 45 years old, you have 45 years of life experience, how many people have you met during that time, how many experiences have you been through, how many skills have you learnt. Countless right!
See every single person in this world have their own story to be told. Their own world within them.
Their own sets of doors and opportunities behind them. Picture one as a door, and once you enter that door you have a number of other doors awaiting within the first entrance, Be family, close friends, skills, opportunity’s, and the cycle keeps continuing.
You can explore your options, by opening the other doors behind you, and getting a glimpse of what opportunities may await. You don’t have to enter the doors, but to know your options, gives you an insight of the opportunities at hand. This is real power!
Understand that every door, holds a new experience and a new set of doors within them, be smart, do not burn your bridges, by locking the doors behind you and throwing away the key, you can always return to the starting point as you desire.
That if you ask, seek and knock hard enough, a road will be found. Even if you’re still in the process of understanding what you truly want, there is no harm in seeing your options and opportunity’s that are possible.
There is an abundance of opportunity within each and every person and situation you choose to take. So start exploring your options and opening the doors, to discover more doors of opportunities.
Engage with others and be invited to experience a glimpse within their opportunities. This cycle is never ending, we really do have an abundance of opportunities all around us.
This leads me to another famous teaching, The Law of Averages, Which is automatically engaged as default, once we start to Ask, Seek and Knock.
The Law of averages.
This teaching explains that by increasing your odds, you are maximizing your chances of winning.
That the more people you approach, and the more experiences you engage in, the more chances you have of finding what you want.
Let’s have a look at American Roulette, there are 38 numbers to choose out of, the more numbers you bet on, the more chances you have to win, your odds of winning are higher. Life works the same way, there are a number of opportunities awaiting to be found, the more people you ask, the harder you seek and the more persistent you knock, the higher your odds are for success. So instead of going all in, with one number, why not bet on the whole table, and instead of gambling your life savings, why not invest with your actions, by asking, seeking and knocking, it won’t cost you a thing, It’s totally free.
Now that’s an investment for life, A Royal Flush!
So don’t forget, the more you Ask, Seek and Knock, the higher your chances are for success, spread yourself through many avenues, through social networks, meeting people, doing new things and increase your chances today. There waiting for you to discover them.
