Ahhh, the Internet…a vast, chaotic black hole of gurus and advice givers and life suckers. Yet, at some point each one of us must become quiet and listen to our own inner voice and no one else’s. The Daily Om for today, in part, says this:
Spending time in quietude, you may find, could give you much required space to look at your life without distractions, ideas, or opinions from other people who may wish to help you but may not know what you truly want.
Having time to ourselves allows us to place our attention on what the deeper aspects of our self really craves. So much of our lives are spent with other people around us telling us what we should and shouldn’t do. While their intentions may be well meant, it is only when we are able to surround ourselves with stillness that we can fully listen to and comprehend the innermost yearnings of our spirit. Retreating from the world today will let you connect with the deeper levels of your self and make it easier for you to heed the desires of your soul today.
Ahhh. Time to ourselves. Introspection. Self-listening, Self-care. All the things we need to find out what we truly believe, IF believing in anything is necessary at all. I’m beginning to see that believing in something is not really living. Believing is pasting over our own lives with other people’s “truths.” Believing is not acting but sitting and mulling what others have told us and then trying to push our lives into that mold. No, living is action, regardless of belief. It is NOW not “in the future, then…”
I don’t want to “believe” any longer. I only want to act…. as I did when I was younger and more confident that life was here to be experienced, learned from, and experienced again, only with more caution or more exuberance. Beliefs are for people who are afraid to live life to the fullest. I don’t want to be one of those people.
