We’re all seeking
Check out these deep thoughts about life that will make you think and look at your path from a new perspective:
1. We’re all creative.
There’s no such thing as not being a creative person. All human beings are.
If you can build a world of your own, with all those expectations, ideals, fantasies, dreams, goals, plans, regrets, memories, opinions, values, visions, questions and answers, then you can also build anything else. You just haven’t decided to bring it to the physical world yet.
2. Boredom is a choice.
I can never be bored as in each moment I discover something new about myself, a deeper layer of my own universe. And to find another person that interesting, who has such deep content, would be an awfully big adventure.
3. The meaning is in front of us.
We’re all secretly searching for meaning, seeking it in every outer source, until one day we realize it’s always been right in front of our eyes – on the inside.
4. It’s not what it looks like.
Some things just sound good.
Traveling the world can make you the loneliest person, money can make you lose your soul, being brave, confident and admired as the person you look up to may turn your life into a constant battle with yourself. Keep that in mind.
5. The deepest sorrow can become your most valuable lesson.
It can also turn out to be the best thing that has ever happened to you. Just give it a chance.
6. Passion can last forever.
I should never say never, I know. But there’s something I’m sure about – there’s never going to be a day in my life when I’ll have nothing to write about.
7. Our weaknesses are opportunities for progress.
Having a weakness and the chance to do something about it and improve yourself is another thing that gives our lives meaning and makes us feel like we’re doing something.
8. Stop asking for opinion.
Whatever they tell you and however good and objective they’re trying to be, what they say has nothing to do with your own world and who you are.
The only opinion that matters is yours. So start asking yourself about all the stuff you need and try to be as honest as you can.
9. Where you’re headed might be of no importance.
It doesn’t matter where you come from. But lately, I’ve come up to the conclusion that it also doesn’t matter where you go.
Too many people focus on these two destinations and ignore the only one that’s essential – where you are. So look around, be awake and feel alive.
10. Change is already happening.
You may say that you don’t like change and are not really good at it, but let me tell you a secret. You already changed a few times since the beginning of this sentence. As in every moment we are different from who we were in the previous one. And it’s neither good nor bad. It’s just life.
11. Asking questions distracts you from finding the answers.
Who are we?’ and ‘Why are we here?‘ will always be the 2 questions that interest people the most.
But what fascinates me
All the answers you’ll ever need are already here – inside of you and in the present moment. And when you let go of the struggle and anxiety caused by the questions, you may find yourself having all the answers.
12. Love the cards you’ve been
One of the best things I taught myself is never to wish to
I know that we can never know what the others person is going through, whether he’s happy or not, even if he looks like he is.
I’ve understood it so deeply that I don’t even think ‘wish I was like that‘ when I see someone win the lottery, become successful, a person with great manners, with a sense of
13. What you ignore might be someone else’s whole world.
It’s interesting how something we don’t care about can make someone else’s world collapse in a second.
14. Freedom is a matter of choice.
Freedom lies not in wanting to impress anyone, but in just doing what you think is right and not having any expectations about it.
15. Everything we have is fleeting.
After every moment, comes the next one. And that’s comforting.
But one day there may be no next one. Keep that in mind.
16. Mindfulness is the healthiest escape.
The best therapy in the world is quite cheap – you just need to sit quietly in your room, ignore everything else, breathe deeply, and be brutally honest with yourself about how you feel, what makes you do the things you do, what you want and what to do to get it.
Even if you take no action after this exercise, you’ll be a changed man.
17. You can become your own boss.
If I was to give advice, I’d encourage everyone to become self-employed.
18. The beauty is in the little things in daily life.
Being easily impressed is a trait of happy people who live simply and peacefully, have found contentment and appreciation. Even though they may look naive and foolish.
19. We’re all writers in our heads.
20. Others cannot be pleased.
Some time ago I realized it’s too time- and energy-consuming to wait for others to be proud of you. It requires expectations, waiting, looking for approval, living by someone else’s standards, doing things you don’t really wanna do.
That’s why I started doing what I like and what I think is right, and became proud of myself. That’s more than enough and makes me happier.
