The Perpetual Distraction Of This Reality

 

study-distractions

We live in a society with seemingly endless things to do. We begin to do one thing earnestly and make progress towards completing this thing. However, we then suddenly jump ship to something else and leave what we have done as an unfinished article. We then continue this pattern, until we get to a stage where we still have so much to do yet hardly anything done. The issues just keep mounting up. We are doing so much yet we are doing so little. What is going on?

Perpetual Faller

It appears what is going here is that we giving into to every turn of the tide. As soon as something new comes across our path, we latch onto it like a rag doll. We are now at the mercy of these distractions, which, I might add are actually entirely off our own making. They are the results of the repression off internal energies and thoughts. Repression always lead to things coming back ten-fold, and more often than not, this is the reason why we are constantly being dragged into things.

Another part of it procrastination. Things in life are meant to be challenging, and this is what teaches us to grow. However, what happens for a lot of people, is when faced with this difficulty, they switch off. The talents inherent within are shunned and one quickly looks for a route to do something else. This is a real shame, because if we had truly and diligently poured our heart into this difficulty, we would have found the solution.

So what happens when we don’t find the solution?

Well its quite clear we end up with a lot of things half done. Our life appears to be a series of fits and farts. Despite starting many ventures, we just never complete them. To make matters worse, things keep piling up and we become overwhelmed. This is when we throw in the towel and the cycle starts all over again.

Something has got to give.

How to be a perpetual WINNER

 

The first step to changing anything, is understanding that there is a problem in the first place. We have to acknowledge that we are stuck in a cycle in life, and make the conscious intention to break it. It won’t be easy, but I guarantee you that it will be worth it.

Step 1 – Remove all sources of distraction

The first thing we need to do is completely cut ourselves away from distractions. Would-be recovering alcoholics, often make it a practice to eliminate all sources of alcohol from the house. Dieters also do something similar, by removing all garbage food from the cupboards and replacing with healthy options.

Simply put, you need to get away to the forest to recover, and allow yourself the time away from these painful distractions

Step 2 – Observe the distraction

Re-introduce yourself to being around these distractions, as the period of cutting away should not be too long, lest you commit escapism. Observe the distractions as they arise, and fully accept it. Do not act on them, just breathe and observe. You will eventually come to realise that you actually have the power to decide over these things, and it is your choice. Completely surrender to it, without acting. Here you will realise your true power.

Step 3 – Realise that this will help you learn

The final stage will be to understand and comprehend the distraction in such a manner, that you can actually use it to aid you. Here the master will love when he encounters a distraction. Although he may fall, he will learn many valuable lessons from this and eventually see distraction for what it is. Neither good nor bad, simply a tool to help with the development of one’s loftier pursuits.

The Present Oppurtunity

“Some days I just don’t know what to write about, heck some days I don’t even know what to think about. Its as if my brain has been lulled and induced to be some sort of way. This feels like fog, brain fog”  

Unknown – 2017

 

Lets face it guys, life can be tough. It has been for me the last few months, and there doesn’t seem to be a feasible way out of this. When life gets like this for people, it can be very easy to give up and throw in the towel.

It’s as life has forgotten about us and whistled by, like missing the last bus ride home.

Surely there must be some way to deal with this, running away has made it worse!

Why this is happening

Our lives are intertwined with everyone else’s life, and whether you like it or not these people exist! Life on this planet is like spirals and change is a permanent feature in our evanescent time here in this physical reality.

Everything happens for a reason and with free-will we can decide what paths to take, There are always consequences, karma does not play favourite.

What we know of karma anyway, in regards to the definition, is… ‘dislodged’ to say the least. (Read here)

What has happened, was meant to happen, and what is to happen is meant to happen…However, this does not mean that we cannot do something about it. We can. Everything which is past or future, was/is made here right in the present. Live in the now and reclaim your true self.

You are still alive

A famous movie once said that ‘every passing second is another chance to turn it all around’. 

Nothing could be closer to the truth than this powerful statement. Often this is also backed up by another famous question…

‘If you were to relive your life again, what would you do differently?’

Many people will answer this question by outlining their inner truest hopes for life. many of these have been now dashed as people have come to accept the life the way it is. But like I said above it is not over!

Parting Worlds

Everything going on in your life now is exactly how you would want it. You have decided to go this way for such a long time now, that you know nothing better.

The new path is opening up for you in the form of your greatest fears. Continue to shut this out, and eventually this will shut you down.

But if one was to explore this path and enter a new world, what great treasures may truly await thee?

Accept the call to adventure, and don’t be afraid to look back in absolute awe at what you have achieved.
