Life is about making better decisions.
Learning decision making is life transforming experience. It’s in all life decisions, from the foods you eat to the activities you do.
Decisions have far reaching consequences. Even more so than we can understand. Both in “good” and in “bad.”
It’s not like all of our decision and choices automatically become better and we do not ever make any mistakes again. It’s more about over time making better choices, which lead to better results.
None of us is perfect.
In the end there is no “bad” or “good”, yet there is the process of becoming wiser if not for anyone else but ourselves. In the end the greatest good comes when we serve both ourselves and the world through the best decisions we are capable of doing.
Last days and weeks have been age of hysteria and mass panic due to the COVID-19. It’s amazing how fear shifts authority and decision making away from traditional authorities. In hysteria we want to react and the reaction time is long so then someone else steps up to fill that void.
Fear based decision making and fear based life is not what I would like to witness.
Mind is powerful. Equipped with fear it can produce the results of that fear even though the actual physical thing is far away.
If you read about mass hysteria and panic in Wikipedia you can for examples of this effects. 2001 Antrax reports and reports of symptoms just because people believed in them. Or another example is resignation syndrome where the refugee children falling into coma like states after learning their families will be deported (read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_psychogenic_illness).
We are not perfect beings.
We have to live imperfect lives.
It’s either excitement of living or fear of dying. Let’s not let the fear of dying take away the excitement of the living.
Let’s work to contribute today what we can.
Let’s enjoy the contribution what we are doing.
Some days it might be more.
Some days it might be less.
As long as we are breathing, we are sufficient and thus there is hope.
We all are going to die, there is no question about that. Because life is so amazing, we should not be limited by the fear of the death.
There is nothing to fear in death. Death is part of life. Just as life is part of death. Be now more considered with living your life with all your breaths.
Take a deep breath.
Remember your every breath connects you to the whole spiral of life. Upward spiral of life.
We cannot remember where we are going, we are all part of that amazing journey.
It’s our privilege to take as many breaths as we can.
‘Fear is excitement without the breath.’ – Fritz Perls, MD, the psychiatrist and founder of Gestalt Therapy
Breath is excitement. Lack of breath is fear.
Remember to breathe and remind your loved ones to breath as well.
There is no room for fear or worry, when we breathe fully and are present.
