When you feel like giving up, and there is nothing left to live for.. just think of all the possibilities that you may be missing because you never gave them a chance. When you decide to keep using because you don’t see a reason to quit, think outside the box.. outside of love, acceptance, materialistic possessions.. the “American dream..” There is more to your world than meets the average humans eye, and it’s time you open up to what you’ve been missing.
Everyone has issues. You are not alone. Everyone struggles with something in their life. You just have to remember when you think you’ve hit rock bottom, there are worse things that could happen, and even though it may seem there is no way out.. there is always light at the end of a tunnel. Some tunnels may be longer than others, but using your knowledge and the right tools, you will always find your way out. It may take time, but you have to be patient. Good things come to those who wait.
Life is a mystery, the goal is to figure it out. You have to search for your purpose. It’s not just going to fall into your lap. A carrier pigeon is not going to fly over you and drop off a letter stating your purpose. Whatever it may be that you wish to do, you have to have hope, compassion, and determination. In today’s society it is not easy to get to where you want to be. You really have to fight for what you want. It’s a struggle. But if you believe you can do it, you can. The only thing holding you back is yourself. Even when it seems like there’s no hope, and your whole world falls apart right in front of your eyes, that’s when life is testing you. That’s when you fight back and try even harder. You have to remain strong and prove that you’re worthy. If you do this, you will succeed. Don’t let mindless activities keep you from reaching your true potential. Everyone has potential, but it’s up to YOU to figure it out and make use of it. No one is going to help you. It’s everyone for themselves in reality, and it’s your job to make sure your life is being lived to it’s fullest. You have to take responsibility and take your own life into your own hands. No one is going to do it for you. That is the harsh reality everywhere.
If you feel like there is nothing you are passionate about, no purpose to your life.. dig deeper. You just aren’t asking the right questions. Stop looking at the surface, stop thinking about material possessions. Start thinking: what is ‘life’? Is there a God? If not, how did we get here and what is our purpose? If so, again how did we get here, and what is our purpose? I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that we just live and die. I think it is much more complex than that. In the simplest way, I believe there is a divine source, or a ‘higher power’. I believe this divine source is something I can’t even put into words. Not a man in the sky. For in the Bible, when Moses heard God, he asked “who are you?” God replied “I am what I am.” I believe that everything in the universe is connected. That we were created in order to experience the physical universe. We have consciousness in order for the universe to learn about itself. After all, if God did create everything, then everything is part of God. All for one and one for all. But I could be wrong. In other words, at this point in my life I follow more of a Gnostic and Esoteric belief system than anything. I am still trying to figure things out. Right now I am on a spiritual journey, and I’m happier than ever.
Anyway, don’t just look to other people for answers. Figure it out for yourself. Have your own opinion. Do your own research! You will begin to find that not everything you have been told if you’ve ever gone to school (elementary, junior high, or high school) is meant to be taken literally- even the bible. You will find there are deeper meanings to the stories we are told, to the symbolism we see around us daily. There is truth hidden within the truth. Our ancient ancestors knew this. It’s up to you to dig in and find out what you’re not being told.
Part of the truth is, everyone has a purpose. Everyone has a job to do, and I’m not talking about being a functional member of society, or even serving God. What I’m saying is much deeper than that. You must find yourself, connect with your spirit and the world around you. Try to reach your highest well-being. You have consciousness and intelligence for a reason, use it. Self-realization is all up to you. If you can figure out what your purpose is, you will likely live a much happier, and healthier life. You will be hopeful. You will not be afraid of death, but accept and welcome it when the time is right. Let nature run it’s course. You never know what the future holds. Most likely, if you keep a positive outlook on your life, you will generally attract more positivity into your life and your future will be brighter. You will understand that everything on this earth has a purpose, and you play a huge part in the equation. So go ahead.. step out of your comfort zone, do the things you love and be happy. Just try to remember, there are boundaries and there are consequences. But if you open your eyes even just a little bit, the world will become more beautiful, life will start looking clearer, and you will start to prosper. So go ahead.. it’s time to wake up.
