The challenge – make your life an exciting journey of discovery. Welcome to a new day, new rules, new leadership, and new challenges. Perhaps you could say that the challenge today is greater than ever. Perhaps it is. But what is before us and has always been before us, is how to make peace in an uncertain world.
Or more fundamentally how to make peace with uncertainty itself. The uncertainty that is present in almost all facets of our lives—our safety, our finances, our health, and our sense of wellbeing. The rapid technological changes contribute to this uncertainty. but in the process we lose our sense of self.
The challenge is to develop a trust that if we live totally in the present that the uncertainty we have about the future will unfold the way it should. It doesn’t mean to be in denial of some of the problems that we experience individually and collectively. But when we approach these concerns with 100% focus and effort, then we begin to discover solutions to problems that previously were thought to be unsolvable.
I don’t have to tell you that the world is changing faster than it has ever before. It’s challenging to keep up with the latest. Our greater dependency on technology fuels this trend. We know what the advantages of technology are. We have more opportunities and greater conveniences than we ever have had before. The advances in health care are enormous and the promise of the future is encouraging, but the challenges are increasing. In the process not only have we lost our sense of self, we have also lost our ability to connect with others, which leads to a greater sense of isolation. Even when we want to connect face-to-face we’re not exactly sure how to go about doing it. Communication is an art form and, like other art forms, needs to be practiced. We get better the more we do it. There is nothing better than connecting with another and at times seems magical.
Here’s a suggestion. For one precious moment, learn to trust it’s all going to work out. For that one moment just be. Then try it for five minutes, and then ten. Just be and give your concerns a holiday. They don’t need you all of the time. That holiday includes taking a vacation from your smart phone—plan your digital detox now.
Living in the moment and being present is an art form that can be cultivated. The ones that have mastered it have a presence about them. They are connected to the source of their personal power and to all that is and has always been. There are more and more articles in the main stream about the practical and spiritual benefits of having a mindfulness practice. Meditation in the morning is an essential practice to cultivate in this rapidly changing world.
To dream – again. To dare – again.
To feel enjoyment and happiness – again,
or for the first time.
To realize – Ah, this is living
Make your life an exciting journey of discovery.
