The Earth is spinning around our Sun at a phenomenal speed. 1467 miles per second to be precise. No wonder most of us are so dizzy and can’t figure out our lives, let alone feel happy about it! Actually, this is not the reason you or I am dizzy at all. You know that, but along with all our challenging life experiences, conditioning and other cultural and social factors we get confused and disillusioned about life. Somehow we find ourselves in a rut and can’t figure out a solution.
We all like to feel as if we have free will and that destiny is something we can engineer for ourselves. Your own experience however proves that this is not the case and that finding happiness is not as easy as you think. If you were to look at your desires, your plans and diary over the past 20 years and honestly ask yourself whether you have arrived at the place you desired to be in your life, would you say “yes this is precisely what I wanted from life and I am exactly where I want to be”? Most likely not! The good news is that there are simple and proven methods for curing your life confusion.
Many years ago when I was growing up used to recall my relatives and family members talking about how fast time was moving. I often heard them complain “Oh dear, doesn’t time fly”. Well now that I’m grown up everyone still says the same thing. Life is too hectic, time seems to be in short supply and age is not only creeping up on us but racing madly towards us like a Mack truck and there’s nothing we can do about it.
This lack of time is one of the major contributing factors to the amount of confusion in our lives. If only we had more time to sit down and work through these issues we might get somewhere and be able to redefine ourselves. If you’re an average person on this spinning planet, life can be puzzling and time is indeed difficult to manage. Later on in the book we will look at ways of handling time more effectively and rather than fighting the fact that we are getting older, more quickly, let’s discuss positive methods of diving into the slipstream of time, moving into the zone and flowing with life rather than beating your head against the brick wall of resistance and inevitability.
It’s amazing the number of people who seem to be ‘lost’ in life. Many seem to think that think being born is an accident and that the stork randomly dropped them off at a location where their parents happened to be at that very moment. Not so!! This is what you might call the ‘No co-incidences department upstairs’ or as Eastern philosophers say – Life’s Merry Go Round of Karma. We’re all here for a reason but is it your experience like most others that you haven’t got a clue why you’re here and what you’re supposed to be doing? And if you are one of the “lucky” people seem to wake up day after day with a smile on their face ready to enjoy their lives because they intuitively understand what they have why would you even be reading this book?
Generally, most of us routinely get up and live the same old same old without any meaningful understanding. Now that is going to stop. Now, you’re ready to really engage with your true purpose and actively seek an understanding of why you are here and what your talents are. You can and will begin to appreciate yourself and fall in love with your life. This will lead to you to a destiny that is in keeping with your true personality and God-given gifts. It’s not hard. You just have to know how to do this. Once you’ve been shown how the process is fun and unfailing. That’s right, it cannot fail!
Most of us live reactively rather than proactively in seeking some worthwhile goal. Running here, there and everywhere becomes a tedious mind numbing routine without any end in sight. Paying bills, meeting family and professional obligations, trying to squeeze in a sliver of pleasure when and where possible is all part of this endless wheel of karma.
Seeking pleasure and avoiding pain is the dual principle of existence. This has also been echoed in all of the major religions. And overindulgence, trying to numb the pain of Monday to Friday robotic lifestyles only creates further frustration and eventually disease. “Dizziness” becomes the norm as our world spins on its axis and human life follows this non-stop path of happiness versus sorrow.
We seek advice and wisdom through psychiatrists, psychologists, astrologers, soothsayers and gurus. We consult well-informed friends who tell us they will show us a technique for stepping off this merry-go-round. Usually, they are just as confused and dizzy as us. Perhaps they have taken up their professions to solve their own problems and don’t really know how to help us. There must be some way to stop all this. And there is.
Actually, before we go any further please, would you mind stepping off the wheel for just one moment? I’m getting dizzy myself watching you go round and round! Before you do anything else, prior to taking another step, wouldn’t it be a good idea to take a minute to step off the wheel, sit down, take a deep breath and quietly re-evaluate who you are, what you truly want and where you’re going?
The job you perform, your friends, your lover or spouse, and even you yourself need to be carefully analysed, honestly, even brutally so, to see whether or not they are in keeping with your true inner needs and life path. The destination of your life should never be an accident. In fact, it isn’t, it’s just that you haven’t acquainted yourself with YOU and the fact that most of your life doesn’t reflect who you are. How can you be in love with a life that is devoid of passion and connectedness to your spirit and your heart’s deeper desires?
Before you embark on any journey whether it be a car, rail or plane trip, don’t you establish first where you’re going? Life is no less a journey and also requires you to figure out where you’ll finally end up. As with most people, you are already on some plane or train travelling to some destination. Is this a mystery trip or what? If possible, get off at the first possible stop and reorient yourself. This is what you must do in the first stage of falling in love with your life. The first two most important actions for a passionate and fulfilling existence are-
1. Consider who and where you are. If you’re happy with who you are and where you’re headed keep going
2. If this is not the direction you feel will ultimately lead you to the goal you cherish, stop. Get off the spinning wheel and re-evaluate your life.
Once you stop seeing stars and your head and the world stop spinning from “life vertigo” as I call it, for even just a moment, you will finally be able to collect your thoughts and systematically begin planning your new destiny. This is the only way you can create a life which you are worthy of. Now, stop complaining and let’s get to work. You have a date with your destiny and it’s time to rediscover the magic of being alive and feeling true love. – Dadhichi Toth
