Do you believe in order for you to have a sense of purpose you have to do things that light you up?
Do you think in order for you to live authentically you need to do things that light you up?
This whole concept of doing that which “lights us up” immediately draws us to the mind where this concept is stored.
In order for us to do that which light us up we have to...
1) identify ourselves as the likes and dislikes of our minds.
2) have a perception/ filter over what neutrally is.
Life simply is the way that it is. Void of a feeling, perception, filter or belief... life just is. It just exists. Just like you and me. We’re all just pieces of Life existing.
So long as we continue to unconsciously identify with and live in the confines of our minds, we will always have a perception on what neutrally is.
Meaning, we will always project an illusory experience on what neutrally is.
Creating space between us and our minds by allowing awareness to arise is what creates transformation and enables the natural process of expansion.
I’m not saying we need to stop doing things that light us up but I am encouraging a revolutionary act for us to see where this whole jargon has gone awry in our lives.
So long as we are believing we are our minds, concepts like “doing that which lights us up” is an unrealistic expectation that can never truly be achieved.
Because the dualistic nature of the mind will always have an equal intense perception/filter on “what doesn’t light us up.” Thus, conjuring that experience up in our bodies when presented with said “unlikeable” activity.
Consider what your experience might be like if you stopped identifying ~completely neutral activities~ as lighting you up or not, authentic or not, good or not.
How might the world around you shift?
How might you shift?
Who would you be?
A piece of Life existing.
Would that be enough for you?
Or does your mind need more?
