Life is an experiment we cannot run away from. Living in this gigantic lab called “Earth” demands attention and wisdom of us to navigate through the variants that it presents. Since childhood each one of us, according to the upbringing we had and to the subsequent beliefs generated in our minds, have shouldered a burden which has a bearing on the reality we project. With eyes wide open on this topic, I intend to share my views and opinions so that you can draw your own conclusions.
As soon as we basically understand the principles of life, the view of things becomes so frugal. What proves this is the conception of good and bad we internalize. It’s always laden with baseless misjudgements that more have to do with a parrot fashion way of living. The traditional view of reality is the result of a social conditioning based on self-interest. It’s scary as it puts in evidence ideas that decentralise the self-perception of the abilities we have.
Compared to an inverted golden rule, its theory is extremely simplistic and cruel. It shows us in a rough way that life is a sequence of adverse disturbances. Problems never cease to exist and life is more like something tortuous and unpredictable. It might be due to the illusion of the self along with the limitations created by man. All of this builds a huge bubble of distrust and hesitation towards the unfolding of life.
Life Is An Experiment, So Do Your Own Laboratory Research
This is exactly what words and whole sentences full of alert and discouragement do. When we neglect to use the inner filter to administrate the course of our lives, the frame of mind we develop becomes an easy target, which is a magnet for trouble. Thus, our spiritual defense mechanism gets prone to attack. Horrendous stories and fallacious arguments take hostage of us without we even check the authenticity of them.
Shocking news, astounding images and manipulative narratives make inroads into our lives, leading us to obsessive behavior and shallowness.
Life is an experiment! If you take as an example the statement “Wear masks, otherwise you’re gonna get the flu! ” In taking these words seriously, this sentence will work like a jingle in your head. And literally, words will definitely hurt you. As it turns out, the quoted sentence above sounds like an absolute truth. Firstly, it contains an authoritative tone inside. Secondly, it intends to cause fear. Thirdly, it alters human behavior and metabolism.
In a deeper analysis, we can say that you can protect yourself with your own daily schedule. That involves a nutrient-rich diet, physical activities and self-empowering book readings. In having a relaxed mind and taking care of yourself through different approaches, life becomes easier. In that case, threatening news talking about a specific disease is just a piece of information that won’t affect your peace of mind.
Life Is An Experiment, An Opportunity For Ascension!
Now, suppose that you hear the phrase “Life is pain”. Such statement has been passed from generation to generation more as a general belief. However, it’s your personal belief that counts. It dictates how you handle your feelings in the face of adversity. There is no denying the fact that we are not immune from life negative circumstances, but it’s up to us to learn, extract positive lessons and grow. So, you can see a breakdown as an opportunity to rebuild your life. With a different mindset, you will conclude that pain is not synonym of suffering. As a co-creator, you must understand that you are responsible for your inner dialog and that it influences the outer world.
To the best of my knowledge, life is not a bed of roses. In spite of that, one thing I’ve learnt in my journey is that we can plant a beautiful rose garden along the way.
The first image that comes to my mind right now is life as a movie set in which we, as authors, arrange the things around, the script and the characters to give it a better finishing. Therefore, things are not exactly what they first seem. Aiming at neutralising your skills, they introduce themselves to you as a teasing.
Behind a gaze, a reaction and even a specific decision there may be a meaning that can bring really serious consequences. Thoughts cannot be left behind from the examples above. When I was younger, I used to say that life would open itself up to me only and exclusively if I got a good job. The opportunity came to me and I would keep on being broke, miserable and unhappy with my life. The image of the world in my mind was packet full of injustice and unfair duality. Now my mindset is different. Every single day I tell myself “throw yourself in the game or else the game will throw you off from it “. What I mean is that life needs people with stamina and perseverance.
Move Through Life Like Water!
Life is an experiment, so it’s never too late to go for your dreams by taking action even if things don’t work the way you expect. It’s you who walk towards your goals not the other way round. It’s your reality with passion, commitment and focus that transforms your life. Similarly, forget about expectations otherwise you take a chance of getting frustrated. Do it for the sake of the experience itself, leaving aside the results you aspire for. In doing so, you will experience life more, being more open for synchronicities. In addition, you won’t be objectifying yourself the same way as the system does with you, and then you will be demystifying paradigms that no longer can control your reality under construction.
With all this energy floating around, you will have time to invest thoughts and feelings in things that matter to you, rather than savouring only the bitter side of life. In building this dynamic within, there will be more room for appreciation and gratitude. Thus, instead of being happy only when finishing unbearable daily tasks, you will have an ace in the sleeve, a reason to unconditionally smile and shine.
