Amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life, do we ever stop to remember how good we have it? Do we ever stop to think about how lucky we are to live relatively normal lives in places that, at the surface at least, seem stable enough to support our work to create a new paradigm?
We’re all in a great position to create the inner and outer changes that need made, and we could go about our work with a sense of gratitude for our existence if we could see that, in a sense, everything is exactly the way it’s meant to be.
We have life, and every day we’re given on this Earth is a blessing that we should not only appreciate, but utilize to the fullest extent.
Only when we can learn to love life can we share our love with the rest of the world, and until we repair everything in our life that keeps us from enjoying or appreciating it, we’ll have trouble creating change in the world.
There are a lot of bad things to be said about this planet, but there are a lot of good things too. There are things here that most people don’t even realize are around, because they never get out and expand their horizons.
Similarly, there are things we can find within that most people have failed to grasp or understand, much less explore with any kind of enthusiasm, and by accepting the opportunity we’ve been given, we can join the ranks of people throughout history who’ve pioneered the exploration of a greater reality.
When we can appreciate this existence, which is a blessing whether we realize it or not, we can open the inner doorway to higher vibrations, mystical wonders and an enhanced understanding of the oneness of all of creation.
We’ll understand that we’ve been taking life way too seriously, and all the pressure we’ve put on ourselves is completely unnecessary.
Yes, survival is a serious matter and we’re right to be concerned with sustaining ourselves, but beyond all of that, we’re spiritual beings who’ve been put here to enjoy this world as we climb the spiral back into a higher existence.
The last thing we should be doing is running around like chickens with our heads cut off to support the very system that’s keeping us enslaved.
We aren’t here to try so hard, and we aren’t here to be so stressed out. We’re here to live. We’re here to love, laugh, find joy in the simple things, help people when they need it the most, and use our gifts to make some kind of positive impact in the world, however small or humble.
We’re here to enjoy everything life throws our way, and the great secret to life is that it doesn’t have to be so mean, intimidating or unnecessarily difficult. It doesn’t have to be a constant struggle to survive, and we don’t have to bounce around from dramatic moment to dramatic moment.
When we find peace in our soul and we appreciate our existence, our entire outlook changes and we stop trying so hard to find the things that, as we’re learning, require us to open our minds and ease up on the tension to find. We won’t find anything within if we’re tense or we try too hard, and this includes happiness.
In my view, happiness is a spiritual quality that we have to be in touch with ourselves to find, and it’ll be harder to find if we’re disconnected from ourselves or our higher consciousness.
When we are connected, we’ll learn that self-care is as important as helping others and we aren’t excluded from the people who deserve help. We can help ourselves while we help others, and giving ourselves the freedom to have fun will help us appreciate life even more.
The key is to stay open and let life become our teacher, because our creator is in everything and he/she is constantly trying to communicate with us. We need only to open up and listen to our intuitive guidance, and everything will make sense as we joyfully reconnect with a part of ourselves we gave up long ago.
Our appreciation will really increase once this connection is strong, and somewhere along the way, we’ll teach others to appreciate life too. Eventually, the world will be full of world changers who appreciate their existence and are willing to work together to create a fairer, more sustainable way of life.
I’m a twenty-one year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
