Death and rebirth
Three years ago, I lost someone that I loved which was very difficult. It was painful. I touched rock bottom; I was depressed and with no energy to do anything in life.
I have imagined a marathon runner losing his legs, a writer losing his eyes and a basketball player losing his arms. These people have lost part of their life, as I did, and I needed to open my eyes to different perspectives. Nevertheless, it is painful to accept the reality.RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
Finding happiness in everything you do
After such event, I understood that material things come and go, but when a love is gone, he or she can’t ever be replaced. Since then, I take my time to enjoy the small events around me, such as watching my dogs play, contemplating my brother’s reading, watching birds bathing in the river… Even the air that I inhale I enjoy.
You may ask yourself, “Why is the reason that Sandro is telling me his life?” Because I want to share something that made my life more fulfilling, less stressful and happier, with greater knowledge and imagination.
Learn to focus on yourself
Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” I will touch on this later in this article.
I have read the same concept that I’m about to share over and over again from different authors, such as recognized psychologists, ancient philosophers, mathematicians, and even the Bible talks about it. And I have applied it in my life.
However this concept is not superficial. The need for inner change needs to be applied to be able to perform it.
To begin with, I comprehend that we need to control our mind, not the other way around – letting our mind control us. Once we can control our thoughts and get rid of the desires that society has make us crave, we can begin our journey.
Practice makes the master
It requires a lot of practice to master the mind and it can be very difficult, but not impossible, for people who drag their past issues around with them. There are many books and therapies that can help with past issues.
Once past issues are taken care of, mastering the mind will be our priority. By the way, to achieve anything worthy in life, effort and persistence is a requirement. Now back to the concept.
Here is how an author put it to me, “Everything is always created twice, first in the mind and then in reality”
In other words, whatever it is that we want, we need to take time to think about how we see ourselves in the future. We need to see ourselves doing the steps required for us to be where we want to be.
As an example – if you want a healthy body, shut your phone off, be in a quiet place, close your eyes, take two deep breaths and think about you with a healthy body as you want it.
Think about your workouts, about the weights that you are lifting, about the food that you are eating (healthy food of course), about your hiking, etc. Soon enough you will be operating at your desire thoughts.
This works in all aspects of your life, monetary, relationships and others.
One more thing that makes my life happier is my purpose
I do not have to think about work anymore. To me, I play every day. There is not a single day that I do not want to be in my studio or waking up. I’m looking forward to continue my day, my week, my month and my year.
The reason is because I have found my purpose.
Like I always say, all the amazing brains such, such as Albert Einstein, Mother Teresa, Buddha, Gandhi, Jesus, Socrates and those who left a positive mark in life, recommend that we need to find our purpose. And such purpose needs to be “worthy,” worthy meaning that our purpose needs to help others and make this world a better place.
There is magic in all the knowledge that these transcendent people left for us, & there are benefits of introspection. Let’s take advantage of it and be happy. It that not what we all are looking for?
