Straight roads can’t make you a good driver

Growing up we have to face different roads and more than once, need to make difficult choices which direction to take. That’s not always easy and sometimes we come to know much too late we took the wrong road.

Our path of life may be very bumpy and with a lot of difficult and even dangerous corners. Handling our own driving wheel we must learn from our experiences, but may never forget we can learn also from the experiences of others. Therefore, it is always also very important to have ear and eyes open for what others felt and did and to look back at historical facts.

Let us not only learn from own experiences but let us also from everything we can hear and see around us.

To remember

  • Life =/=  so easy >Every day facing new challenges + hardships => rarely a smooth + problem-free life.
  • always hurdles and difficulties in life +> making us stronger.
  • Life = challenge every passing day teaches us a new lesson.
  • Bumps in life, the problems, and challenges of life make us stronger to face every kind of situations.
  • Without these little hurdles, life would be meaningless for us.
  • Need to get out of your comfort zone + select a good milestone for your life.
  • Success requires to conquer many fields of difficulties.
  • For every problem in life, there is a solution
  • Difficulties in life make us learn that how much we are capable of facing those hard times in life.
  • After facing all challenges > feel proud of ourselves
  • Thoughts + fear in our mind > to tackle
  • Every day a new challenge to learn something new => will learn to live a life in a meaningful way.
  • Accept the challenges of life.
  • Always a positive + negative aspect of everything.
  • Negative parts of our lives teach us so many things that make us more sensible.
  • Hardships make us more mature to deal with the problems.

Life is not so easy. Every day we face new challenges and hardships. A person rarely has a smooth and problem-free life. There are always hurdles and difficulties in life, which makes us stronger. And that is the real picture of life. If we always face easiness in life, we can never know the reality and pain of life. Life is like a challenge every passing day teaches us a new lesson. So if we don’t find any hardships, then we can’t get any real experience from life. Straight roads can’t make you a great driver. The bumps in life, the problems, and challenges of life make us stronger to face every kind of situations. Without these little hurdles, life would be meaningless for us.     

You need to get out of your comfort zone and select a good milestone for your life. Success doesn’t comes over night. We are required…

What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

What would you do if you knew you only had a year to live?
What would be on your list?
Whom would you like to see again?
What would you like to spend time on?
Which dream would you want to realise?
What would you like to leave behind in this world ?
How would you like to be remembered?
Whom would you want to have been and how?

Read the list out to yourself.
What really matters to you?
What are you waiting for ?

Get up.
Take a small step.
Do something.

In the turbulence of life, listen and wait.

  • Present-moment awareness = being attuned to Unity of Life + being attuned to unique individual that is “you” + feeling expansion of the possible while accepting the contraction of limitation + accepting the unknown of the infinite and eternal while moving through concrete, tangible experiences
  • resonance that reaches to all life, interacting, interweaving, enfolding, unfolding.
  • boundaries (us/them/other) fade + soften allowing recognition + familiarity
  • practice present-moment awareness: listening, focusing, meditation, prayer, sports, or garden, or drive very fast, taking action = expression of our inner life through our outer life > remaining in center between mind, heart, + actions through listening + waiting.

  • waiting = important = allowing space for movement of the heart to direct our action, rather than the mind = unnerving
  • if taking actions because we have been listening to movement of the heart => each action becomes an expression of a higher unity.

What is present-moment awareness?   It is being attuned to the Unity of Life while also being attuned to the unique individual that is “you”.  It is feeling the expansion of the possible while accepting the contraction of limitation.  It is accepting the unknown of the infinite and eternal while moving through concrete, tangible experiences (—do we ever really know what our actions mean?).   Present- moment awareness requires that we be open to what might be while living in what is.  That which is before us—the person we interact with, the food we eat, the keyboard on which we type—all of the little actions we take comprise each present moment and link us to the Unity of Life, the infinite, the eternal; every action, every word, every thought carries with it a resonance that reaches to all life, interacting, interweaving, enfolding, unfolding.

Why should we care about present-moment awareness?  We…

Thoughts and reflections taking only a few minutes

How many minutes a day do we not spend on useless things? How many minutes a day are we willing to spend to ourselves and how many minutes are we willing to spend to our Creator?

Many years ago Carl Jung said already

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” {Carl Jung}

Today many people are afraid to look into their own heart. Though we should do that more often. Looking at ourselves we also should reflect how we behave in this universe and how we want to relate to others.

Hermann Hesse said

“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat any time.” {Hermann Hesse}

Not enough people do take time to retreat and to take some time to look at things, wondering how everything is going good or bad and why certain things evolve a certain way.

The master teacher rabbi Jeshua reminded people how they had to look at life and how also king Solomon was aware that we always had to live as if it is the last day of our life. Every act of our life should be done as though it were our last.

We should

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really taste your food when you eat, and when you sleep, really sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will dead soon enough.” {Ernest Hemingway}

and

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We only have this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.” {Sir Francis Bacon}

Therefore let us take every moment of the day to make the best out of it.

“You have a treasure within you that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.” {Eckhart Tolle}

“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they bloom like flowers.” {Thich Nhat Hanh}

Helping each other is also made possible by sharing ideas, thoughts of ourselves and others. On “Our World” you may find regularly some thoughts to carry you away or to let your reason or meditate.

From 2016 June 14 some “thoughts“, “meditations” and/or “reflections” shall be published under the tag “reflection text“. With pleasure we recommend you to have regularly a look at those texts.

As such you may find articles like:

  1. Don’t let anyone move you off the foundation of your faith
  2. Light within
  3. Keep positive
  4. A cheerful heart filled of hope good medicine
  5. Love envieth not
  6. Invitation to all who believe

and many others
