A Realization About Life
Life is about living in the moment, simple as that...
(STORY THEME: 'Meaning of Life')
...My journey started when I was 16 and I discovered lucid dreaming by watching the tv-series Ed. In that specific episode he was experimenting with lucid dreaming and I was intruiged by it. I didn't even knew it existed!
That lead me to explore all sorts of different things which several years later has lead me to greater awareness and appreciation for life. I still do have some problems to appreciate life as it is but I am getting better.
Sometimes when I get bogged down in a problem in my life my mind can snap out of it and say "this is what life is about". And I agree with my mind! Life is about enjoying the ride, through the joys and through the hardships.
This is what I am beginning to realize more and more as each day passes. A pretty funny story... I was living in Spain a few years back and was involved in a car crash (not serious, strained my neck mildly) and as we were taken to the hospital I kept laughing at the whole thing.
It all seemed so interesting that I would be in a car crash. These are things you only hear about. So I was intruiged and at the same time relieved that everyone was okay and nothing serious happened. It was just one experience in my life. That can sound weird but that's what happened, that was my reaction.
My realization about life basically comes down to this... enjoy what you have and live in the now. There's always going to be something for you to get or some problem that your mind will worry about. You'll never be able to get rid of your mind but you can calm it by meditation and something I've started using is the Sedona Method which I like a lot.
I still have trouble with worrying but I am getting better. Even if problems happen, so what? We'll get through them and we'll grow from them. That's what life is about!
