There are times in my life where I tend to be more quiet, observational, and contemplative, and the past few months, this has been the case for me. These times always help me see things from a different perspective. They help me arrive at a new awareness that can be a bit surprising for me, but these are the moments that are so important, and I’m learning to embrace them.
My message to you will always be the same – that each of us is unequivocally uniquely different and yet the same. For example, one person will experience emotions much differently than another, and you are the only one who knows how that feels for you in your body. No one, and I mean no one, can tell you how that feels for you. Not society, not your family, not your partner; you get my point. It’s your experience, but how you choose to react to it is your responsibility. I’ve come to realize that our reactions to life are made up of many different facets, aspects, and conditioning of how each of us sees and views the world consciously and unconsciously. This is how uniquely different we are.
Now, I want to focus on the word ‘life.’ This has been my contemplation for the past few months. Not so much the meaning of life, but more about mastering life in the mundane world. 2020 forced most of us to slow down and assess things. 2021 is helping us take a good look at things we put value in and choose to innovate from. Either way, whatever the year’s background frequency theme is, I’ve come to realize that each of us is here to experience and master life, simply what it means to be human and to be alive in a physical form experiencing life in the mundane world. I’m not saying life doesn’t come with its own set of challenges, but we chose those before reincarnating, so there needs to be a sense of acceptance with that. But my contemplation is on the mundane world and how we are mastering this part of life.
So, what do I mean by the ‘mundane world?’ Well, the world we’re experiencing doing mundane tasks such as grocery shopping, laundry, dishes, cooking, even gardening, for that matter. I believe these tasks are something that we’ve been conditioned to think of as just something we have to do or not. There’s always a duality here. But whatever tasks we choose to put into our mundane world, could you think about those tasks? How did you start out doing them, and how do you do them now? I bet you don’t do them the same way. This experience, practice, and repetitiveness create the expansion to question if there is a better way, a more effective, and efficient way of completing these tasks.
For me, this is the definition of mastering life in our own mundane world. I believe we start with this mastery to expand this same concept and apply it to other areas of our life. However, with the instant gratification and the fear of not being good enough that our society perpetuates, we’ve lost sight of allowing for patience with the process, so we don’t even try. And here’s where we can give our power, freedom, and control over to others, all while blaming, shaming, and wishing for something better for ourselves. We give up on ourselves, thinking we have nothing of value to offer because we’re not trusting in the process of mastering our own lives in our own mundane world. It’s just easier.
So, my question to you is, what other areas of your life would you like to apply this same process of mastery all while allowing for the patience within yourself and the process with no expectation of anything more than just the experience?
