Who and what drives your life?
And let me continue with question: Do you have a vision for your life? If we ourselves do not choose by which script we live and create our own life with, we become unconscious replicators of our own past experiences and environment. Once we reach a certain point of adulthood: majority of what and how we think, feel and behave are run unconsciously by conditioning. Unconscious thinking and behaviour models adobted from our environment. Habits. Unconscious reactions. Beliefs, perceptions and opinions that are not actually consciously chosen by ourselves but something we have just been conditioned to. This of course does not mean that we ourselves have stopped being the interface through which we experience and create our own life with AND through which we affect the lives of others. It simply means that we are not aware of this and we just do it without any truly conscious thought and choice that what do we really want. Yet that too is a choice we ourselves make. Being ignorant is a choice. Living your life with auto-run by learned unconscious patterns without pausing and questioning IS a choice we ourselves make.
By creating a vision for your life and life in general, YOU draw the picture instead of those unconscious automatic patterns. YOU create a roadmap for yourself to a future YOU have chosen consciously and purposefully yourself. YOU create the script with which you navigate life with. It is so much easier to be present, enjoy life and make choices when you know who you are, when you know in which direction you are going, when you know what you are creating and why. It is so much easier then to make choices what beliefs and thought-emotion-behaviour-patterns you want to hold on to and what to let go and “blow up” so to speak from your own consciousness. It is so much easier to know what kind of conversations you want to engage in and what kind perception you want to bring there. It is so much easier to know what kind of relationships you want to foster and what kind of relationships you want to let go of. It is so much easier to know what kind of environment you want to immerse yourself in and what kind of environment you want to leave behind. It is so much easier to know what you want to read or study, what kind of music you want to listen to, what kind of movies you want to watch and what kinds of not. Of course it requires some effort and some determination that can be also called as “mental balls” if you choose to put your foot down and start going to a different direction than the people around you. Yet at the end of the day, it is just making a choice after choice in a moment that we do anyway. So why on Earth you would NOT make choices that actually serve you and life?
So as a creative being of Life why not go and create a vision for your life? From my Facebook-page you can find parts of my own and trust me I will be sharing more and more of them to the world. If you feel inspired by any of them go ahead and take parts or all of them to help you create a vision for your life, or if not, create totally your own. It can be something that have never ever been seen before! What ever feels right within your own being follow that. Just be decisive enough to learn to discern what comes from your inner being and what from conditioned programs of the mind and make choice after choice after choice to follow the guidance of your inner being. And you know what, if you take a detour, you are just one step closer knowing what you truly want as you have learned what you don’t. I have a secret for you: We don’t have to take life so seriously. It is actually very playful in it’s true nature as we can see from the children and animals who have not been conditioned to all that seriousness that adult-humans have been.
