Break the vicious cycle of busyness and delayed joy.
Hey it’s Rand,
It can take months, even years to reinvent yourself.
The journey usually starts with a sense of the collapse of your ego structure.
Something much deeper within you seeks to voice itself. Think of this as your soul voice.
At this point you begin to recalibrate the structures that surround you. To align with your soul voice.
You may need to change:
- your workplace
- your community
- your activities.
The catalyst for starting this journey may be a profound feeling of apathy; it may be a feeling of anger or even isolation.
Whatever it is that signals the breaking of the vicious cycle of busyness and delayed joy for you, you should welcome it with open arms.
My near death experience broke my vicious cycle: I still get goose bumps thinking about it; I was able to still my busy mind and focus inward; I peeled back layer upon layer, until all that remained was my inner voice; with constant exercise it became stronger, and as it did I became calmer and more attuned to the universe. For the first time, pure joy entered my life.
Be aware that the journey of reinvention can be a painful time, filled with confusion and fear; repressed feelings can flood into your consciousness; moments of uncertainty about the path forward can hinder your progress.
But it is such a worthwhile journey. Instead of being filled with your own joyless noise, you will begin to listen at a deeper level. And you will start to hear what the people around you are really saying.
Invest the time to determine what excites you; invest the time to determine what delivers you real meaning; work on that the rest of your life.
This work’s true value is fulfilment and inner joy. This work is priceless.
