Redifining what is essential

11/28/17

Have we lost track of what is truly essential? Are we disoriented in the maze of our fears and desires? 

Today’s life offers tremendous opportunities and newness. Without a mindful presence, constant exterior stimulus creates feelings of lack and desire of a different experience than the one we are having. 

Used as a direction and not an absolute, desires and intents are engines of progress. However, we lose our way when they are considered as a source of happiness. The craving they create for newness and perpetual excitement causes, in the long-term, dissatisfaction and suffering. The more we engage in this endless game of newness to give a sense to our days, the less we obtain it. An uprooted tree is no-longer nurtured by life energy. That’s what happens to us. 

Redefining what is essential and creating a list of values, provide a sense of purpose and direction in our lives. It gives a different weight to what we chose to do and how we do it. Things most valuable to us are often unnoticed and taken for granted. Only when lost we realise their importance. Thanks to mindfulness exercises, we can define our essentials and take care of them now. Lets consider our health for example. 

Our body is the vehicle through which we can experience life. Taking care of toxic thoughts and emotions, exercise and thoughtful nourishment we become consciously active in preservation of one of the “essentials” on our list. 

We create a better quality of life by defining our list and evaluating daily how much we have honoured it. Our choices become wiser and give a deeper sense to our life. 

With my heart,
