Live Your Life Because There Is No Timeline of Where You Have to Be or What You Should Be Doing at Any Specific Time/Age

Published

‘What use is this pride of appearance, of which so much is risked, and so much is suffered. It cannot promote hate or ease pain.’ – Benjamin Franklin, The Way to Wealth

Today, we think we must do what the society expects us to do during a particular time, or when we reach a particular age. We believe we have to own particular things or behave in a specific way for the society to accept us.

However, this belief is foolish and it can prevent you from reaching your full potential.

I wish people knew that they don’t have to be anything at any particular time. The society must not dictate what you should do or have. Whatever you have or do is your business since it mainly affects you.

For example, if you get married because people expected you to marry, the marriage problems will only affect you, and the funny thing is that all those who expected you to marry might be unwilling to help you tackle your marriage problems. Also, you might raise your child alone if you get pregnant because of society’s pressure.

That being said, if you want to do your thing, do it. Never avoid following your ambitions because you want to do what the society expects. Many people, in their deathbeds, regret ignoring their ambitions because they wanted to conform to the society. They feared to curve their own path because the society expected them to get a job, marry, get children, and die.

For this reason, no one should ever tell you that you should marry because you have reached a certain age, or that you have to get a job because you just graduated.

If you want to be happy, just do what you want to do at your own time and pace without trying to conform to the society. No one should tell you what you must do. We are all unique in our own way. As well, we come from different backgrounds, and we have different paths to follow. Do what you feel is right for you at your own time, as long as you don’t harm anyone, because you are the only one who knows what makes you happy, and you are the only one who will suffer from your actions.

You came into this world to enjoy life and have an impact on people’s lives. You didn’t come to sacrifice your happiness for the sake of other people’s opinions and ideas of what you should be doing. Feel free and do whatever makes you happy whatever time you want. There is no universal rule that requires YOU TO BE AT A PARTICULAR PLACE OR TO DO A PARTICULAR THING AT ANY PARTICULAR TIME.

We stifle our doubts and follow the flock because we do not believe that we can be the directors of our lives – Alain De Botton, The Consolations of Philosophy

What is popular is not necessarily what is right – Alain De Botton, The Consolations of Philosophy

Top 24 Deep Truths Every Spiritual Seeker Must Know

In my article, 20 Powerful Spiritual Truths You Must Know Right Now, I discussed amazing spiritual truths that most of you loved. Here, I’ll share with you deep truths that all spiritual seekers must know.

Most of the truths I’ll share here are known by every spiritual seeker, but others are facts only known by seekers who read hard and think deep.

Enjoy:

  1. Envy is a mixture of pessimism, hate, and fear.
  2. Anyone, including the wicked, can manipulate spiritual powers. This is the reason why ancient secret societies never exposed their secret spiritual knowledge to everybody.
  3. If you fear ghosts, you are either closed-minded or you don’t know that the divine dwells in you.
  4. If you stop caring about non-sense, you’ll have more energy to work on spiritual development.
  5. Life becomes better when you stop trying to control it.
  6. Your most reliable sources of knowledge are your intuition and reason.
  7. The body does not know the difference between reality and imagination. It will tremble when you imagine yourself in a frozen forest, and it can sweat when you imagine yourself in a hot desert.
  8. Words are powerful: they evoke feelings, emotions, and trigger action.
  9. We came from a powerful, intelligent, and mysterious source.
  10. A life of service leads to harmony.
  11. You’ll find inner peace when you stop attaching emotions and feelings to your thoughts.
  12. We are gods in a lower state of consciousness.
  13. You are both earthly and godly. Your body makes you one with the earth, and your spirit makes you one with God.
  14. Many spiritual masters agree that you can feel the presence of the Divine if you choose one virtue and conduct it uncompromisingly.
  15. Loving everybody unconditionally and being thankful for what you have are silent methods of prayer.
  16. You easily attain inner peace when you surrender to the flow of life.
  17. Ghosts exist, I saw one after saying a moon prayer.
  18. According to the Law of Divine Manifestation, the universe will provide you with everything you need to grow in all aspects of your life.
  19. According to the Law of Prosperity, you prosper easily and quickly when you hold images, feelings, and emotions that align with beauty, prosperity, and love.
  20. The universe will only give you more spiritual powers when you effectively use the powers you have.
  21. Psychedelic drugs induce higher states of consciousness.
  22. All living things are The Creator expressing itself in different states of consciousness.
  23. Knowing or thinking about the Creator is not enough; as spiritual seekers, we must strive to feel the Creator’s presence.
  24. Invoking spirits with an impure heart is dangerous as you might end up invoking evil entities.

THE END

The Truth About Following Your Dreams

The Truth About Following Your Dreams

Motivational speakers love advising us to follow our dreams. They usually claim that dream chasing is easy since achieving our dreams only requires us to think positively, find what we love, visualize living the life of our dreams, and work hard. As well, they claim dream chasing is fun and adventurous.

I used to believe these ideas. However, I discarded them after chasing my blogging dreams for about two years and realizing that dream chasing is boring as I always force myself to work, and things seldom work out as I expect. Furthermore, I doubted these ideas after a large percentage of my blogger friends gave up on their blogging dream.

I started blogging in 2018 January, and I made friends with many aspiring bloggers. A year later, 98% of these folks gave up on blogging after experiencing the writer’s block and slow-traffic growth. 

These folks also gave up because they found the journey boring, tough, and scary, although they believed the idea that dream chasing is fun and adventurous. This is a shocking truth many people realize when chasing their dreams. I was also shocked after realizing that the journey isn’t easy, but I decided to keep working and see what will happen. However, sometimes, I feel like deleting my blog.

As well, I usually become extremely anxious when I think about failing to achieve my blogging dreams despite working hard, and I often ask myself whether I’ll continue working on my blog in case I don’t achieve my blogging dream after ten years.

Chasing my blogging dream has thus enlightened me about the shocking truths of dream chasing. After blogging for a while, I noticed that following dreams doesn’t guarantee success, and I discovered that anxiety and doubt are part of the journey.

Anyway, besides these truths, you’ll realize more sad truths when you start following your dreams. For instance, you’ll discover that several people, including your closest folks, will doubt your ability to achieve your dreams.

Another sad truth you’ll realize is that you’ll have to be your own motivator because most people will encourage you to give up. The people who love you will encourage you to get a safe and secure job, and they’ll tell you that dream chasing is for the extraordinary.

The chances of achieving our dreams increase if we know such facts about dream chasing because we’ll prepare ourselves for them, and we won’t be shocked when we encounter them. However, the chances are slim when we think it’s easy to chase and achieve dreams because we’ll expect the journey to be fun and adventurous, and we’ll quit after realizing its toughness.

In conclusion, never ever follow your dreams if you think dream chasing is easy because you’ll give up, and you’ll end up being depressed. Only follow them when you are ready to endure obstacles, discouragement, and work persistently despite not seeing progress.

I wish you the best.
