This question has been on my mind lately, the more awakened i have become over the years, the more i realise my life is not being lived the way i feel
the spirit is intented... i also observe people who are not 'awake' yet, and am able to feel their vibes/emotions and they seem to be the most
unhappy, most unsatisfied and most frustrated, let me elaborate..
The majority of people i know live in this 'routine' that in reality we have no choice to follow, people seem 'stuck' and thats exactly what i
believe is happening to our spirits - we are stuck, stuck in the same routine, the same daily chores, the same daily stresses, alot of people spend
their whole lives spiritually in the same place, without ever achieving real happiness.
Lets assume our spirits are here to evolve, which i believe they are.. lets assume in order to find true happiness and contentment, that we have to
spend our time here enduring different emotions and experiences, learning and finding our own state of happiness, for one person it may be the smell
of a certain flower or another person it may be the sound of waves, happiness should be the feeling of being free to explore ourselves and the world,
and to have time to 'find ourselves'.
We are simply not living how we are meant to live, thats why i believe so many people are unhappy, so many people are 'happy' on the outside, but
crying on the inside, so many people are confused and frustrated without knowing why, we can not evolve spiritually when we have to get up at 6am for
work, go home and complete mundane chores, cater to family members, and then spend the remainder of time worrying about bills, money, the future
etc..... we cannot afford to 'live in the moment' anymore, we are essentially, not being ourselves. Whether we want to accept it or not, we live to
earn money, we are a slave to the one thing that consumes most of our worrying thoughts, and people who have all the money they could ever wish for,
are probably even more unhappy, they believe they have achieved the ultimate goal, but still feel empty and unsatisfied, once again, i believe that is
because we are not evolving, or progressing spiritually.
How many of us wake up with the feeling of excitement and wonder as to what the new day will bring, how many of us can spend an hour or so in our
gardens when we wake up and listen to bird song and maybe meditate? how many of us can spend a day gathering and preparing a meal for all those we
love from scratch and together, using fresh foods.. how many of us can just decide to go on an adventure for a few weeks, exploring new ground and
places? how many of us have a aching to get back to nature and the basics of life, but know it is seemingly impossible in this day and age? imagine
the satisfaction of building your own home and communities and grow food, to sit round a warm fire under the stars with our loved ones without any
worries of bills/money/stress..... to me that would be bliss..
I believe thats how life should be, we should be actually 'living' and working with nature, i cant be the only one who feels like this? feeling like
im living my life the complete opposite as to what i should, feeling trapped and stuck, feeling like a slave to a reality that was forced upon us, and
not feeling deeply truly happy with my life, on the outside, im an outgoing, 'happy' 27 year old, but internally im longing to be 'free' and at
one with the universe, i am longing to break free from this draining routine and structure we call life...
We are living artificially and thats how i feel, artificially happy...
