Life can be a celebration, but many of us don’t realize it, and don’t seem to savor the beautiful moments existence is offering us as a gift each and every moment. Instead, we are wasting most of our time doing things that we don’t enjoy doing, and our way of living is having tremendous negative effects on our well-being.
My experiences have taught me that life doesn’t have to be lived like this. Life can be lived in a much more beautiful way — a way that brings us love, peace and joy. But how can one learn to live this way?
Here are some powerful tips that, if properly understood and put to practice, can help you to turn your life into an awesome journey:
1. Treat your body as sacred
The body is the temple of the soul, and the better we treat it, the more we will be able to make enjoy life.
The body is intimately connected with our mind, and so the healthier it is, the sharper our mind is going to be. In order to be physically healthy, be sure to eliminate cancer-causing foods such as meat and processed products, and choose to eat organic, nutritious, plant-based foods instead. In addition, remember to keep your body active on a regular basis, and be sure to take plenty of rest when it needs to relax and heal itself.
Most importantly, re-connect with your body by paying attention to it, and once you start getting in touch with its wisdom, I assure you that it will guide you to much greater health.
2. Do what your heart is beating for
Due to they way they are raised, many people waste their entire lives doing things they don’t care about doing, and when they grow older their heart is filled with regrets because they never lived they way they deep down wanted to live.
Stop for a moment and think how most adults live: they force themselves to wake up, they go to work, they come back home, they watch television for a few hours to relax themselves, and then they sleep, only to repeat the same things the very next day. What is the point of living like this?
Of course, in our sick society, it is immensely difficult to pursue your dreams and offer you gifts to the world, but it is definitely worth trying to, because without doing so your life will be empty and meaningless.
3. Surround yourself with uplifting souls
They say that our friends show a lot about kind of people we are.
Our friends shape ourselves and our lives, so we’d better keep close to us those who uplift us, who care for us, who pay loving attention to us and wish us well. Those who want to see us grow, relieve ourselves from our psychological burdens and wear a big smile on our face.
From now on, make sure to stay away from those who bring conflict into your life, and remember that some times you need to let go of certain people who don’t vibe with you anymore, regardless of how much time you might have already spent with them.
4. Break free from the illusion of separateness
All beings on our planet are interconnected.
However, in our culture we feel separated from one another and the rest of the world. We feel lonely and insecure in a cold world that is external to us and which is indifferent, or even hostile to us. And the more separated we feel, the more stressed we become, as well as afraid — afraid to open our hearts and trust people, which results in the war mentality that prevails in our society.
Our worldview of separation is also contributing to the destruction of Earth. If the world is separate from us, why not control it, dominate it, and exploit it for our own personal gain? This is how we think, forgetting that we are destroying the very planet that we inhabit and sustains us.
Only once we realize that we are all one, will we be able to live at peace with ourselves and our fellow human beings, as well as in harmony with the natural world.
