Everyone searches for a purpose to their lives. Some people are more focused on just surviving, but in the end humans are wired for more than simply existing.
Different people see their purpose differently. Time and age can change where you focus your energy.
Some people focus more on others than themselves and feel more fullfilled if they are serving others. Some people look to invent something that will improve the lives of others.
We need all different kinds people, with different skills and interests in order to tap into multiple kinds of brains and different kinds of intelligence.
I believe that each of us is happier when we feel like we are able to use and develop our best gifts, and what we feel drawn to do.
It is easy to get off track because others think they know what we should be doing. And some people only want to guide us in a certain direction because it serves their agenda.
We are all unique and have an inner guide that wants to lead us. When we really listen to our feelings, we can tap into that guidance. We should be careful not to get so busy that we ignore our feelings and intution.
Ctitical thinking has its purpose and can serve us in many situations. It can also talk us out of doing what we love because it can rationalize our behaviors.
If you feel miserable in a situation, there is something wrong and your emotions have their own intelligence.
We exist in multiple realities. There is the thought reality that we tend to rely on. There is our emotional reality, which is just as important. Our spiritual and intuitive reality can guide us to a higher vibration of consciousness.
There is our physical reality, which is made of pleasure and pain. The reptilian brain drives us by primal urges, and warns us about danger.
The thoughtful mind is the conscious mind. It is the critical factor that tends to make us ignore our other realities. The primal drives react and override our critical thinking.
We need to live in harmony with all the aspects of ourselves. We need to be physically comfortable and safe. But we cannot ignore our emotional reality. It lets us know when something is wrong with the direction we are going, or how we are going about it.
Make time, also, for your spiritual self and explore the meaning of that to you. Let your realities all have a voice.
Balance in everything is important for health and to move closer to enlightenment and peace of mind.
Blessings and peace,
