Finding the Secret to Life.
( In my view) There is no ‘secret’ to life per se, as ultimately “life” is what we choose to make of it.
All of us that come into the world to experience living in this dimension eventually have to pass from it as well. Death is the inevitable conclusion to our life’s journey so why bother? Well, I believe our concept of death is wrong. To die in the real sense of the word is to choose restriction and to never allow yourself to fully experience the miracle of being alive in a body.
Death is not the end of life, but only the end of the physical experience of existing in a physical container. Consciousness is not extinguished by act of physical death it only changes form and focus. I believe the deepest human fear is the fear of death and this primal fear is the root of all other fears. This root fear is what lurks in the dark corners of our collective psyche and it is what prevents us from rising to our true potentials in life….
The World as it is now, is an increasingly chaotic, confused, and unhappy place. It is under the grip of a materialist, collective mindset that holds up rampant consumerism as the new holy grail and key to happiness when in reality all it does is temporarily mollify our fear of death. This materialist path is a dead-end. It will deliver no lasting inner peace and no future that will be worth living in the Human sense of the term. This sterile version of life will be empty, fruitless, and joyless. That is it’s promise, for the price of living in such a materialist society will be your sovereignty, imagination, and your birthright to be a free thinking independent entity.
To avoid this future scenario we must remember that as Humans we are inherently gifted with free will, imagination, and creativity. This is why it is paramount that we wake up and reclaim our birthright as fluid beings and our destiny as a species. If there is any ‘secret’ to life it is this; we have the power to change the future by changing the present. The point of power is now. Therefore every present moment is a fresh opportunity to start again.
Wake up to the magnificence of yourself by developing your imagination and creativity in whatever way moves you. Unplug from the manufactured reality being foisted upon you and turn inward to the reality of your eternal consciousness. You are both the jailer and the prisoner of your fears and as such hold the keys to your own liberation and happiness.
There are many ways to increase your ability to be a master of your own inner self. Find self empowerment methods that work for you and then take the time and make the effort to get really good at it. This will give you the tools to face your shadow self and unearth old programs running in your subconscious that inhibit and confound your efforts. Work your way through the labyrinth of your fears and uncertainties. Self determination allows you the opportunity to clean out your inner cupboard and free yourself from all that does not serve you. Finding the joy in just being on the path of inner discovery and creativity is an end in itself. Enjoy the ride.
