Getting Back to Basics
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
It isn't about being particularly shrewd or savvy, it is more about being honest and in truth with yourself.Getting back to the basics means finding your true sense of being in its simplest form.But please it is not about the basics of survival in its purest sense but more about the basics of taking back responsibility of one's own self.
Once you have allowed the basic fundamentals of life to enter into your essence, you are ready to go to the next step discovering contentment and joy not to be confused with pleasure.
We have been caught up, for the last 40 years, with a new way of living Fast food restaurants, fast and easy frozen dinners which are more chemically based than nutritional balanced foods; then there are fast paced cars and the express lane highways.We contend with our addictions to entertainment that is tantalizing and then again our lifestyles gravitating around watching our neighbor's lives played out on the television together with the social media apps that got everyone and every company saying come and get it!All of this is letting everyone know what we are doing every minute of every day.Instant gratification is what most people are seeking and as a result, they are also discovering that with all the stimuli and rewards that they are surrounded by, they are also feeling a strong sense of lack.Could it be a lack of fulfillment, contentment or a desire to return to the simpler way of living where we had the time to sit down and actually smell the fresh air and the flowers without being pushed or brainwashed into believing that we need to keep up with everyone else's purpose?
How much time do you devote each day to developing your inner knowingness which is your psyche or your intuitive talents?We all possess them, but unfortunately, most of us ignore them and then miss out on their beautiful messages and gifts.When we are in touch with our instincts, magic happens because we are better prepared to understand the right direction to follow.Our emotions are held in check and our minds become sharper as we gravitate towards a life worth living instead of a life that is running in the express lane.My question is:Are we being manipulated into performing in a way that's pleasing Madison Avenue and the marketing guru's?
Are we strong enough to resist the temptation of what everyone else is doing and can we overcome all that hype and say:"I need to get back to basics because that is fundamental to my experiencing joy."
Information and solutions is key to our survival.We need to seek the right information that will enable us to live a life that benefits us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. When we are able to take that information and not only process it but allow it to work on our behalf, we are able to find the right solutions that will allow each and every one of us to enjoy our reason for being.That process already requires us to get back to the basics.For it is only through returning to our authentic reason for being that we actually have control over our life and discover its true meaning.
