Hello and welcome to a piece of peace, your weekly dose of inspiration and motivation. This week I would like to share on the topic “UNPLUGGED”.
We live in a world of illusion. So many of the concerns that occupy the mind and the tasks that fill the calendar arise from planted impulses to become someone or something that we are not. This is no accident. As we develop from a young age, there are sets of predefined instructions that have been indoctrinated into our psyche, which means that we naturally operate according to a status quo.
Our every action and life goals are molded on a template of somebody’s failed dreams or aspirations and that first template is usually from our parents. As we proceed in life, we come to a realization that, the set of predefined dreams and goals that we have taken do not actually match our innate default settings. UNHAPPINESS SETS IN and we begin the “coasting” process. Many of us are “coasting” through life.
A situation where one is not happy or depressed but exists in a neutral frame of mind. Most often, they convince themselves that they are content and do not need anything else, but in reality they are living a life of no meaning or purpose.
Coasting is actually one of the most dangerous places to be. It is a point were you no longer care about what happens to your career, dreams or life. You just grin and bear whatever your situation is and find enough excuses to justify why you do not need to be rich, successful or hungry anymore. Coasting is the first realization that we are plugged into the system. For most of us that system could mean the authoritarian-corporate-consumer culture that now dominates the human race. We are trained that particular ways of being and behaving are preferred. For others that system could mean failures and set backs that have relegated us to adopt certain self-destructive behaviors like drug abuse, gambling, prostitution etc. The antithesis of this is to be UNPLUGGED. You see, you alone are in control of the barriers that hinder you from achieving your fullest potential.
From the time you wake up, you determine every single thing you choose to do. This means that you can choose to continue coasting or to get unplugged. Being unplugged means accepting that you are by no means a finished article. It means you are imperfect and you will fail and make mistakes sometimes. You will miss the mark sometimes but no matter what, you are now enlightened and determined to achieve that version of yourself that has been hidden from you thus far. You are much too valuable to the world to just coast. You have been destined for something far greater than you can imagine. That purpose is however not freely given and each day you must earn your right to have access to that purpose by exhibiting exemplary principles. This means you cannot give up no matter how much life throws at you. You have what it takes to overcome and after all is said and done, it will surprise you what you discover at the end of this journey. Make the decision to get unplugged today and connect to your purpose. Please remember in everything you do, be yourself, because everyone else is taken.
