Death Changes Perspective of Living

A change in perspective

We live and we die

We live and we die. But while living, most of us don’t keep the thought of death in mind. A person suffering from an incurable disease may keep it in his/her mind, but not a normal person suffering from ordinary ailments.

For a very big population on the earth, life is perpetual. That is how they think and live. Is this a right attitude? To a certain extent this is a right attitude and at times, wrong. Let us analyze further.

We not only live our life thinking that we will not die, but we also behave with others as if they will also not die.

A story

Let me give you an example. Let us talk about a friend. He/she does something or speaks something. We are deeply hurt and feel bad, and we begin blaming the other person for many things.

We don’t think of forgiving and carrying on. Why? Suppose that friend of ours meets his/her death after a week. What will be our reaction? We will go in a remorseful mood and blame ourselves.

The bad feelings that we had for that person loses all the meaning. That person is no more and no critical analysis or one-upmanship will help now. The situation has changed totally.

Accidents occur everyday

Anyone of us may die at any moment. No one knows about the time of his/her death. We all believe that we will live to a ripe old age and will die only after that. Sometimes, we don’t even think of that.

How about changing our perspective? How about keeping the thought in our mind at all times that – the person I am hating so much now, or I am arguing with so much now, may even die after an hour by meeting with some freak accident.

This may change our perspective about all our relationships. Is this not true? It will change our thoughts about ourselves also. We will all begin thinking more of today and worry less about tomorrow.

Life is precious

Every life is very precious. Every heart is precious. Why hurt anyone including your own self? Forgive everyone. Begin with yourself. Let death change our perspective.

Live Abundantly (Part 2 of 2)

Do not dare to miss the first part.

 

Continuation:

 

Resentment, jealousy, envy and self-pity interfere with the free-flow of abundance

If you are jealous or envious of someone, it implies that what they have is not available for you to have also.

If you find it difficult to let go of these feelings, Bach flower remedies may help. Try the remedy ‘willow’ to counteract resentment and self-pity, or try ‘holly’ for envy, jealousy and greed.

Forgiving those that have wronged you is part of living abundantly

Holding on to your anger, justifiable it may seem, keeps you stuck in the past. I prevents you going forward into a better future.

If it’s difficult to let go of your negative feelings, try writing a letter expressing all your anger, hurt or envy. Write until you can write no more, and then burn it.

Being able to receive from other people

Being able to receive is healthy, but many people find it difficult. You may need to practice receiving. Think of the pleasure you get in giving. By not receiving generously you are denying other people the pleasure of giving.

Realize that in general ‘good luck’ plays a very small part in people’s life

If you put your faith in good luck, then you have to accept the possibility of bad luck too. People who put their faith in ‘good luck’ often spend their lives waiting for things to happen. People who don’t believe in luck go out and make things happen.

Believing that there is enough money, food, love, etc.

The world is enough to meet everyone’s needs to live abundantly. It can be very hard to believe when faced with war and starvation in the news.

The truth is, a lot of this anger and need is because people who have do not believe they have enough.  They substitute money and food for all the other abundance of life.

Do your part to correct that imbalance and start living a life that recognizes there are inequalities and shortages. Rather, we can correct that so we all have what we need.

Live Abundantly (Part 1 of 2)

Many of us are bowed down by life – stressed, short of time, tired, on a treadmill. We know that this isn’t the way to live, but not knowing how to free ourselves up to live more fully, more abundantly. There are simple things we can do. They don’t take time or money, but they take a change of attitude.

Below are the things we can do

Be totally financially honest

If you are not, this implies that there is not enough for you to have everything you need without dishonesty.

Create a vacuum so that more good things can flow into it

Don’t fill your life up with things you don’t really want. Ask yourself if you want each thing before you buy it. Don’t have abundant rubbish. Live abundantly by seeking out the things and experiences that work for you in your core being.

Tithing is often associated with religion, but it is also possible to tithe in a non-religious context

This seems a really important aspect of living abundantly. Every time you freely give money away, you are implying that you are confident that more will come. This is a BIG positive affirmation with a lot of power behind it.

The traditional amount is 10% of your income. I’ve recommended this to lots of people. Then they’ve told me that when they do this, magically, they seem to have more.

I started with 10% but now I’ve increased it. I’ve discovered that the more I give away the more I get back. It then results to a happier and more abundantly I live.

Being grateful for what you already have

Focusing on the good that is already in your life. It’s easy to think about what you don’t have. But spend some time each day thinking about what you do have. Start each day by thinking of 5 things that you are grateful for – and express this out loud.

Secrets For Stress-Free Living (Part 3 of 4)

Do not miss out the first and second part.

 

Continuation:

 

Being in the present moment is the only way you can make an emotional connection to what it is that you want. Therefore begin the process of it becoming attracted to you in future present moments.

This type of emotional alignment cannot be achieved when your thoughts are in the future or past. “But how much do I need to be in the present moment? I have all this stuff to do.”

You must be in the present moment to have enough fully-loaded, pleasurable, positive full body feelings. Being present will begin the process of its automatic attraction to you. Living with your thoughts at a future or past moment in time, is entirely redundant in the process of being free of stress, and attracting what you want into your life.

You can never be enough to

You can never be sorry enough to change this problem situation. It is only when you love yourself that you have that love to radiate to others. When you are allowing the abundance to flow to you, then have the ability to gift it to others.

Giving your energy in any form to others, is the fastest route to the emotional poorhouse. Whether it is love, forgiveness, agreement, or any energy, when your cup is not already brimming over. If you want to help others, you must first help yourself.

Others easily see through empty gestures, compliments, or favors; and, such gestures only hide you from your own emotional impoverishment/malnutrition. They are not useful, and serve no purpose in enhancing your life or others’.

Be selfish enough to line up with your intentions

This is important because it is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer others. If your own energy tank is not full, you have no business looking after the tanks of others.

Secrets For Stress-Free Living (Part 2 of 4)

Please read the wonderful first part.

 

Continuation:

Happiness is your meta-experience when thinking about something that brings you such pleasure. Happiness cannot be experienced by the senses directly, only pleasure can.

Focus your life on having more now-moment pleasure experiences, rather than accumulating reasons or things to be happy about.

Stay connected to source

Find your own personal way to stay connected to your higher consciousness (the feeling you). For many this is meditation, music, song, etc. Why are we so attracted to parks? water? nature? wildlife and animals? We have awareness on some level that we are part of a much greater collected consciousness, something else, something higher than us.

Some people may be partially disconnected from it, but you can never fully disconnect from it. Notice that the word emotion is e + motion. Notice the connections of levels even on a linguistic level. Did you know that elephants are one of the very few creatures other than humans who cry tears of emotion? And when was the last time you saw an elephant running?

They adapt or has the ability to release emotions from tears in the same way humans do. People are attracted to source because we recognize that’s where we want to be. We want to have those feelings, we want to experience that energy. Energy, just by being in its presence, makes us feel better about ourselves.

Live in the moment

We only have access to our full personal power in the present moment. This is practicing the art; it’s a habit to be developed, a life-skill. The extent, to which you are connecting, on some unconscious level, either into the past or into the future, is the extent to which you rob yourself of your present power.

You are not going to be experiencing what it is that you want; therefore you are moving your emotional point of attraction, into negative territory.
