There comes a point in a man or woman’s life that they are faced with the impending doom of mortality which faces them down the road. And it is as if death himself meets us halfway, or even comes to the very spot where we are to introduce us to the fears subconsciously hidden away in us.
We don’t have to put any conscious efforts toward thinking about death or contemplating the end of our life to still have the embedded fear of abandonment which rings true in our core. Perhaps, it is ancestral and their fears to the unknown are compiled within our soul which each new generation/member will walk through just as the generations before had done.
No cultural traditions and no religion/belief system will ever be able to separate the individual from the experience which is Life, through Death. The human experience here on Earth, as we know it to be today, can be broken down into the root purpose of the experience being in the facing of the idea of death. The idea that you could possibly cease to exist after the passing of your body and that you are not an eternal immortal essence or energy which has been present since the beginning of beginnings.
The ultimate humbling of a perspective that otherwise has no contrast to the existence of the eternal, immortal, and limitlessness that is abundant in an energy so powerful as that in the consciousness of humanity - the imagination that creates and the wonder that seeks to philosophize its own existence.
The state of being which is not attainable or achievable, for it is the true state of all things in existence - this is the great conundrum of the human experience. An intelligent mind and a pure heart of spirit will bring many men and women to chase the understanding of the meanings which are impossible to understand. The comprehension of the existence is not in the understanding of its laws, rather in the state of being during the existence. The state of existing which an individual holds during the present moment is the opening to which their own harmony and peace with not knowing can be found.
Is the current state of existence you hold in constant rotations of various points of focus which your attention finds itself directed towards? Or do you have a steady focus on the present moment simplicities? Simplicities during such things as; doing the dishes - are you able to be present during the task of washing the dishes without a mind that runs aimlessly through things like this weeks to-do’s, past memories, or future worries? Walking from your car into the building or place of work; do you find yourself being present with the walk and the sights and scents of nature around you - or are you thinking of the day’s tasks that lay in wait for you through those doors?
It all sounds very simple, and it is - yet, the unaware state will continue to participate in the very factors contributing the suffering and imbalances of perspectives in an individual. Become aware of your simple moments in life and don’t ever neglect an opportunity to evolve into your highest expression - its probably the reason you came to experience life here. The pains of pitfalls and the needless suffering caused by our mind’s repetitive recall of those past experiences, bringing them fully into the present for us to re-create and re-experience.
Focus on the desired outcomes, not the possible shortcomings or obstacles. You never fail if you don’t draw a line in the sand to call it quits at - ever hurdle is the opportunity for growth and evolution in your belief in yourself. For YOUR belief, is the only thing that exists on the way to YOUR truth. And you must believe in your self before your truth sets you free.
