“From the way most people live, one would never guess that humans are beings of free will. Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn’t. The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal. The unending repetition is a conscious choice in the pursuit of a life dream. But what about the sameness of most lives? Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink, the Sunday football game or religious service–how many of those people are consciously following their dream, training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition? And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day out of habit and boredom?” ~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie; philosopher and self-awareness author.
Do you have a goal that makes waking up every morning worthwhile…?? Do you plan mentally your day or you just mindlessly behave like a robot…?? Do you envision a future and work intelligently towards it or you just work and hope for the best…??
You know, most people really believe that in life all that is necessary to achieve all your goals and experience life to the fullest is just being a good person, so they read this and that, they pray and behave kindly, they wish and keep the word ‘love’ in their mouths all day.
Physical life is a chance to develop your human values and create yourself, embrace self-love and expand it through your talents and skills, to be the hero of your own life, to conquer your negative mind (to conquer your villain) and to spread that inspiration onto the world.
Only you can do this, not your parents, not your friends, not your religion, not the dead people you pray to, but ONLY YOU. And the secret to all is in your mind, the hero and the villain dwell in your own mind.
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” ~ Buddha.
