There is a terrible affliction that eats away at our lives, slow but deadly, like rust: inactivity. We try to spice up the utter tedium of our inactive lives with cheap entertainments and idle pastimes, like extra sauce on bland, chemical-based food, in an attempt to mask its foul taste.
It is widely recognised that everything depends on energy. Our vitality and ability to act and think clearly is all made possible by our level of free energy. So how can we influence this level?
The fact is the body develops habits. It is used to experiencing certain feelings. It is used to vibrating at the frequency of negative emotions, be it irritation, anxiety, chronic stress, apathy or melancholy.
Let’s get one thing straight: knowing the tools for transformation and actually using them are very different things. Many people are unable to bridge this gap. They “know everything and have read everything”, but in reality they can’t even get the ball rolling, never mind make major changes in their lives. This phenomenon has always surprised me and encouraged me to investigate, both through examples from my own life and from friends with very different stories. You will find the results below.
Sorting out your apartment and getting rid of everything you don’t need is a prerequisite for general order in your life. Now it’s time to reach for the shovel and head to the runway; it needs to be cleared of mountains of – primarily mental – debris. And it needs to be cleared by hand. This is no quick or easy task.
Lately I’ve been getting more and more stories along the lines of “I know what causes my apathy, but there’s nothing I can do about it.” What’s surprising is that I don’t sense any bitterness in these messages, nor any kind of real effort to figure out how to change. It sounds more like issuing a challenge. An assertion of their uniqueness, because obviously no one else understands the reasons for their suffering (yeah, right), whereas they understand their own problems perfectly.
We experience suffering or dissatisfaction when we lack something that we feel entitled to.
“How can I be happy without love? Or without children?”, a girl might say to herself, justifying the internal chaos she feels in her relentless pursuit of a man.
“How can I be satisfied without material things, such as a car or a house?” wonders the man who saves every penny as his credit card bills go up.
How do we go about creating ourselves when it comes to relationships? Starting over yet again? Today´s article is on the topic of romantic relationships.
The way to make friends with yourself, to get into good physical shape, and to make money doing what you love is no secret. In the words of Richard Branson:
Screw it, let´s do it!
When I say “people intent on change”, I mean people who are genuinely willing to take matters into their own hands. People who are willing to make conscious changes in their lives and take control of the changing process, rather than becoming overwhelmed, then surprised when they find that they lack the necessary strength or energy.
