Spend Less Energy On The Naming Of Things, And More Time On The Experience Of Them

As human beings, our minds are driven to categorize all things. From grocery lists, race, sexual preference, or how you tie your shoelaces, it's a process we all spend energy doing.

Often we become so engrossed in creating these categories or differentiating between everything that we forgo the awareness for the very things that they are. 

Experience Gives Us Energy

The further we let things be as they may, and accept them for how they are, the burden of categorizing depletes itself. All that spent energy is now reinvigorated into our mind and body. With more time to devote to what's important, we reach our goals without haste.

Defining What Something Is Distracts Us

Whether a relationship or debate with a friend, honing down to the essential crisis only seperates us from experiencing it first hand. By taking it away and figuring it out, we in effect project ourselves, as if trying to place a square into a triangle. It's limiting. Also taking us out of the moment, we lose the inherent value in all things.

Missing out on what's before us riddles us a mystery of our existence.  To not exist is not left up to defining what is or isn't, for it is to be interacted with during our time here. We live it, experience it, and embrace it, or whatever it may be. It doesn't have to fit anything.

Experience Is Openminded

There is no black and white; this or that.  Everything is open for interpretation, and there is a lot to interpret. We expand our minds, seeing where things naturally go, rather than forcing it down an awkward path just to meet our expectations. 

Instead of "What Am I Doing?", ask:  Am I doing? Being something that we are, we can let go of surplus entanglements.

We Try To Match Naming Conventions

Always trying to live up to titles and other values, we miss out on who we are. Almost like being programmed to expect an outcome, we sacrifice our own values to reach another. It goes unnoticed, even when paying attention, for it lurks beneath our motives by being a base knowledge. We must relearn what we know, and plant a new field to harvest.

Alas, The Art Of Doing 

Just be. See, do, hear and feel. Let things come, then go, as all things are in a flux of change. What more need there to be?

 

 

 

Keep in Mind, The Sun of Time: 4 Ways to Reclaim your Desires

Forget not, the light in the sky

There you are, awaiting the closure of the day as the sun settles along the horizon. As it sputters away you're left in the darkness, alone. Thoughts begin rolling into mind on the reflection of your day. The day is of course, the only meaningful measurement of our lives. We rise to the sun, and lay to its absence. It's the time we may invest our intentions. Let us signify the radiance of the sun as our entry into effort as we reclaim its energy.

Awareness begets action

The day is anew, and in its waking, we are left to another thought: how to make the most of the day. By sunset, what is it that you wish to have accomplished? Did you leave the day behind knowing you've done everything within your power?

Often, we don't. Take this day for instance, if you could repeat the same day again, what would be the most important task you could have accomplished? Not reaching targets doesn't mean you've lost your journey, because the day doesn't mark the end. You are the ends maker. This isn't the time to cut back, but to instead rise to your own claims of desire. Don't reduce, increase actions!

Generate the impression of your most esteemed desire, and convert it into reality. Give attention, and concentrate. Acclaim your lost awareness by feeling the sun's breath, and far reaches of its warmth. As a new armor, wear it to give presence to the core motivations that lurk beneath. These new ways of thinking shall give rise to a new north star.

Go out with a bang

Awareness of death is the true motivator for living in fullness. In knowing our lives are limited in time, one must pursue the true motives that stir within us. Instill these impressions inside and use this new power to fuel the oncoming battle of wits as you're fighting yourself, and no one else. 

All problems are internal to the chaos of polarization. No matter what path you take, you'll hit the fork in the road where your values diverge one way or another. This is another aid to awareness. To reflect on the path you've taken presents the very thing you seek. It lines up your every move, till you come to a spot you're standing now. Every action, task, and hindrance in your life is the key to your next destination.

A Result in Time  

Become obsessed with the reality you wish to make, and it will be so. You're developing the aptitude for opportunities. Some may be now, and others later. You'll be presented with compounding choices if you have the will to do so.

If you're not preoccupied with where you're going, you'll never get there; nor become the person you want to become. Reshuffle the cards and reshape your being. If you're not afraid then you aren't on the right path. Disregard everything that will burden your journey for the long run, and devote zero further energy to it. Take the leap to get out there, and wet your feet. Now set sail for the new world.
