“We can either decide now to full embrace everything, or we can attempt to plan every detail and dismay when it all goes wrong”.
The Social construct
The society we live is pretty much made up for us to work on auto-pilot. We go to work (usually from 9-5) and then we come back, eat, do an activity, watch TV and sleep. Then the weekends come and we blow it all away in a state of intoxication and before you know it… Monday is back on our doorstep and the morose begins again.
We are living a life of routine.
The life where everything is to plan and we carefully allow ourselves to have designated periods of pleasure. But the problem is, these pleasures are so few and far between that we are often left feeling worse than when we undertook them.
In our depression when then plan a course back to the top. We execute each step to precision to reach a designated goal, and then… it all comes tumbling down, even if we did achieve what we wanted, still that same feeling… emptiness.
Allowing Things To Be
So it’s very clear here that when we try and plan our lives it just doesn’t go the way we want it. It appears there is a force at large which is governing things (call it God, Universe, Nature etc.). Life is divinely planned and yes we do have a free will, it is like deciding which road to take on your journey. But… do not expect to turn up in London if you take the road leading to Manchester.
I believe the first thing one should do to combat the extremities of life is to accept it. Now accepting doesn’t mean falling into your desires and all those things which lead you further down the road of disappointment; but actively embracing life, connecting to our true selves and allowing life to govern us.
Instead of asking what the meaning of life is rather we should ask something else; what is life asking of us?
We should aim to dig deep down back into our childhood, find what we truly love to do, and accept the call to adventure.
Translate life’s gift into your actions, after all it is not you who is in control.
