What Is The Cause Of Your Discontent?

Discover The Cause of Your Inner Chaos

And What To Do About It!

As children we have have been taught to use the five senses and our cognitive intellect to navigate through life.  Skills very necessary for survival.   Before we knew it, we become so entwined with this method of thinking we didn’t even notice that we had become slaves to events and actions of others.  In the process, we lost our true selves. We begin to look forward to special events, vacations, praise from others, as well as the rush of attraction from others until it became our mode of functioning and getting through each day.

But we began to rely on these events to determine our happiness.  So many elements began to toy with our lives…..our emotions were like yo-yos.

Today we live monitoring all of our ability to be happy on  a crazy pendulum of daily ups and downs. Get a compliment – feel wonderful.  New shoes – so excited.  Get demoted at work – feel awful.  Have a great meal – feel content.  Your mate is cranky – feel anxious.  On and on it goes.

Is it any wonder the pharmaceutical companies are thriving?

Eventually our systems are wired to crave this drive through drives, thrills, and physical sensations. Some become slaves to the chase and acquisition of thrills, even though they lead to an unsatisfying and unstable life.

Caution:  The greater you are enslaved to thrills, the more you  will unhappy.

 

Test it out yourself!

How do you know this is true?

Try this test!

 

Are you often uncomfortable when there is nothing to look forwards to?___________

Do you feel that there is something more to life?__________

 Is there a longing within you but unsure what is it or how to get it?________

Do you hope tomorrow will be different but it never is?____________

Most answer Yes….but they are afraid there is nothing else so they decide this is just life and continue down the road of the frightened wanderer so were keep the mind and body running.

The short term  results for this tragic thinking:  costly financial mistakes, loss of valued relationships,  career mistakes, and over all self-loathing.

Anxiety is just the beginning of this illusion until eventual physical death.The end result for these tragic thinking.  Eventually we arrive at a point when we realize this chase is like a bottomless pit that can never be filled. Occasional disappointment sinks into despair lost aimlessly in search. for lasting fulfillment.

What can ‘You’ do to get off this rollercoaster you call ‘life’?

Caution:  The greater you are enslaved to thrills, the more you  will unhappy.

The only way out is to think from a spiritual viewpoint. It is finding your soul’s essence and realizing that although exciting events will come, they will go, and that the only thing you need is you.

This is  the Real YOU?

Your are a king or a queen through conscious awareness of your true identity.  You need not do anything.

You have entered a realm of spirituality which transcends all of the illusions that have held you captive.

You ask, “Won’t I be bored if I don’t look forward to things?”  Absolutely not. Boredom is a by-product of the crash after the rush.

Practice sessions:

Refuse to accept emotional attachment as happiness.  It is not.  

Imagine having no fear in a situation that once drove you off the hook?  Feel like that.

How would you behave with others if you knew no one could hurt you?  Feel like that.

How would you react to misfortune if you knew it wouldn’t bother you?  Feel like that.

A king or queen becomes the ruler of his destiny by living like a king or queen.

Measurement of Growth:  When you find yourself alone, nothing good on tv, nothing coming up this weekend, no drama….and you realize, “Wow, I’m not depressed.”

Wonderful News:  Exciting things will still come about but like clouds passing by; you will enjoy them but your day will not be governed by them.

Warnings: Sometimes a shock or tragedy when met with awareness can make the changes needed but, if possible.  Seriously, there’s no need unless that’s the path you choose.

Mantra:  Today I will pay attention t awakening my intuitive self, therein is lasting happiness.  So it is!
