You are here: / / Are you Masterminding or Celebrating Your Life?
One of our greatest challenges as humans is dealing with the fear of the unknown – the question that’s always in our mind about every situation we get into, and in every moment of our existence – “What’s going to happen to me?”
Somehow, we’re always in and out of our existential stress, dealing with the anxiety of the unknown. When you start noticing you see that you’ve had a life time of creative ways of dealing with the unknown, trying to control it, pretending it’s not there, explaining it, being well informed and above all understanding it. “Somehow, if I will be prepared enough, get informed, understand, then I’ll be OK. “You can control your fate and the future by taking clever measures now. If you think hard enough and work hard, you’ll figure it out, and the unknown will become known.
Look at the snow storm this week. It seems like there is a whole industry engaged in masterminding how we should feel about the weather, mostly how we should mistrust nature and be afraid of life. Fear sells. While you may not like it, it keeps you engaged and you come back for more. So in the 21st century, you can easily end up having a virtual experience of life in your head, but not really experience and live it. The closest metaphor to living is breathing, as opposed to thinking. The breath in all languages is connected to being, soul, heart and spirit. Inspire expire, spiritus. Breathing is what’s closest to being. A Human being as opposed to a human doing. Perhaps, taking care of yourself is not only mani-paid, but taking care of our being by breathing. Accepting, Embracing & Celebrating the Unknown, rather than Fearing, Struggling & Controlling It. Meditation is the creative courage to celebrate the unknown & dance with your fears now rather than perpetuating the victim story of why we are who we are. It’s the difference between sitting at home glued to to the TV, and watching the weather report, rather than getting dressed well, going out breathing the air, smelling it, taking it in celebrating it, and maybe even playing with it….
