Why am I alive: Is there some grand purpose to my life?

Why am I alive: Is there some grand purpose to my life?

Why are we here on this beautiful Earth at this time in history? Is there a purpose to my life? And what should I be doing with my time? Such big questions. However, have you ever considered that maybe, just maybe, life is not meant to be understood? Maybe we can just experience life for what it is- a series of events that continue to occur. Stuff is happening, has always been happening and will continue to happen, whether you and I are here to witness it, participate in it, or not! Do you know what that means for you

Are you living the life you want? Or are your beliefs limiting you to a second-rate life experience?

Are you living the life you want? Or are your beliefs limiting you to a second-rate life experience?

The reality, that we as individuals see, is a very small portion of all that is happening around us. It is shaped by our own personal experiences, perceptual habits, and memories. In a complete scene of any moment in time, anywhere, we will choose to perceive and retain a limited amount of information which will be different from others standing right next to us. And what we perceive actually amounts to us making guesses about it- and our mind filling in the blanks to create a story around it. Our story will be different to everyone else’s story but there

What is the path to true happiness? Buying everything I want is not making me happy. Am I missing the real secret to happiness?

What is the path to true happiness? Buying everything I want is not making me happy. Am I missing the real secret to happiness?

To briefly recap some of the content of my previous posts so that this one makes more sense: We enter this world with nothing, and we will leave it with nothing. Most people as they grow take on the beliefs of those closest to them and end up living similar lives unless they are able to change their subconscious beliefs. Life does not need to be this way! More empowering choices have always been, and are still available to every one of us. If we seek out information and experiences that will empower us, we will create a better future

Are you ‘hurting’ enough to want to change? Change can be scary and it is often fear of the unknown that holds us back.

Are you ‘hurting’ enough to want to change? Change can be scary and it is often fear of the unknown that holds us back.

Everything that happens outside of ourselves, (our external environment,) that solicits a reaction from us is an opportunity for us to learn more about ourselves. We are able to learn so much just by becoming more aware of how we react to different situations, different people and the different environments that we interact with. So how is life working out for you? Are you currently having a wonderful experience? Do people, locations, and situations where you spend most of your time make you feel uplifted or drain you of vital energy? In other words, is the lifestyle you are currently

How can I feel good about myself: I want to have a better life experience!

How can I feel good about myself: I want to have a better life experience!

Previous lifetimes of energy are what we come into this life with. An accumulation of energy in this lifetime, up to the present, is what we add to it. This is where we are- here and now- with this energy score. Many people refer to this as our ‘karma.’ If you don’t understand this term, go here for a definition of karma. From now on, imagine if every thought and every action you take is with the purpose of raising your energy or creating a better karma score. Do you think this simple act would contribute to improving your quality

What is the consensus view of reality: And how does accepting it limit our potential?

What is the consensus view of reality: And how does accepting it limit our potential?

The collective consensus reality of ‘how the world is’ is a collection of ideas that have been established, built upon, refined, and subsequently enforced by those in power for thousands of years. This does not mean that their view of reality is correct, however, it is the current view that most of us accept and live by. How has this consensus reality been maintained? Current political systems continue to push ideas that reinforce the status quo. The main idea being that, as individuals, we are unable to look after ourselves and need continued ‘guidance’ from those who are wiser than

Do you want a better life? Then seek transformation instead of information

Do you want a better life? Then seek transformation instead of information

Do you really want a different life than the one you have now? I’m assuming that you want to make it ‘better’ in some ways than the life experience you are currently living. Do you realize that this means you will have to change things about yourself, not other people? Other people are not responsible for creating our lives. Our life experience is our responsibility and if you are blaming other people or other events/circumstances for your reality then you are playing at being a victim of circumstances. The benefits of being a ‘victim’ is that you do not accept

Am I doing something wrong? Life is not fair!

Am I doing something wrong? Life is not fair!

I grew up with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Resources were sometimes scarce, so we were always taught to ‘be fair.’ This meant sharing what we had and trying to get along the best we could with what we had. When commenting to an older and wiser acquaintance one day about some current situation in the world that I thought was not fair, he simply said, ‘Who said that life was meant to be fair?’ It was like a light being switched on in my brain as I realized that what he said was absolutely true! Why hadn’t I known
