Have you ever asked that question when faced with the vicissitudes of life? If we live in a corrupt society that is run by big business, pharmaceutical companies, and the one world government agenda... then what is the narrative that brings us back to our comfort zone?
Perhaps it is clinging to the past, the rear view mirror, with the unsolicited quiet meadow we sit in (in our mind) that brings a peaceful mantra to mind. We can escape to places we've never been to bring about changes we've never expected. If we can get back to "What's really Important" perhaps in some small way we just made the world a better place... one human stepping stone at a time.
Here are a few inspirational quotes from Deepok Chopra that illustrate that very point:
"Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future."
"You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible."
"Look at the world as a reflection of your inner state."
The bandwidth on experience takes us from those events that have shaped our lives, to the moment we live in, and finally the vision we dream of for our future. As we expand our awareness, seemingly random events will be seen to fit into a larger purpose. That purpose is a path we choose every moment of every day that winds around obstacles which in many instances we can't predict. Those obstacles can strengthen our resolve or momentarily defeat our purpose as we connect with the soul within that guides us towards our destiny.
A song, a conversation, a book, a poem, anything that places us on a track to accomplish a greater goal is a connection with humanity. That connection puts into perspective the importance of the decisions we make in the moment that reflects whom we are.
To make those important decisions is like a chessboard filled with multiple choices that can move us towards our goals or farther away. Each piece we move involves a myriad of intellectual and emotional caveats that brings into light the definition of the path we choose. Every step is a calculated risk that brings us the joy we seek or the pain which makes us stronger. In either case it is a classic win win. Why? Because from the abyss of failure we learn a valuable lesson which can eventually guide us through dangerous, uncharted territory.
For many the joy in life is the regiment of repetition. Go to work, come home, rinse and repeat until you are granted two days off. Then, do it all over again until retirement. In between there are birthdays, holidays, and other celebrations. When we are young there are many weddings... as you grow old those gatherings center around "Celebrations of Life." In both cases you are surrounded by friends and family that are a remembrance of times and places associated with each face so important in the evolution of our own life.
Each stage in life reflects the act of a play. The introduction, the opening act, act one, etc. Then we can view this play that unfolds before us to understand the decisions that have helped create the happiness, sadness, and hopefully personal growth that mentors us towards our final curtain call.
When we drill past the minutiae of unimportant events, circumstances, and trivialities, we are left with "What's really Important." "You ask, "What is that?" To love, and be loved in return.
