“What you focus on expands”
Have you ever heard that phrase? And why do many personal growth coaches and self-development gurus repeat it all the time?
Because it’s a simple equation to a complicated life.
What do you mean by simple equation! There is no such thing as simple! Life is freakin complicated! That’s the argument I will get from most of you reading this article. I might also get this from my own self at this moment.
But the important question is… why do we have a complicated outlook on life? and why is this considered the default setting of the human brain?
Well, let me burst your bubble and tell you frankly that it is not! This is not the default setting of any human brain. And this all goes back to the point of birth, we were all born happy babies with simple minds.
However, sadly a simple mind is now looked down on, a simple mind is labeled and categorized as unfit and unworthy to survive in this wildlife we live in.
On the other hand, my dear fellow readers, a simple mind is a mind that understands life, a mind that understands the natural flow of things, the infinite love we all have inside and the eternal peace we are literally made of.
Why are babies and children always happy? And when they’re not, how come they snap out it in a couple of minutes? How come laughter and love are the most two dominant characteristics in any child?
It’s because this is the default setting of the human brain, that is why we simply function better when well rested, why we get the most creative ideas when we have an empty mind, and why we become more ourselves when we’re on vacation.
It’s because in these moments we snap out of the storm of life we’re living, of being reactive creatures tending to the needs of others, of spending energy without actually giving ourselves the space to receive more.
It’s because, in these moments of thought silence and soul freedom, we actually focus on the true meaning of life, on who we truly are, what we truly desire and where we truly want to go.
So, slow down, take a deep breath, and let go.
