If you feel at times that you are leading a double life, acting as one person and wanting to be another, you are not alone. So often the person we really are, and the person the world sees are two different people. We fantasize about having jobs such as a painter, instead we choose the traditional jobs such as teaching or medicine.
We think about what others may say if we choose to follow our dreams. More than outsiders, our own negative thoughts sabotage our dreams before it is given a chance to take flight.
Man is by nature complex, he is capable of moulding his life the way he wants to. Unlike animals, whose only mission is to survive, man has been blessed with the ability to live beyond mere survival. Man has been given emotions, intuitions and feelings all to be used and nurtured.
We are afraid to choose our own happiness for the fear of causing others pain. If you are happy, you can only cause more happiness to others. Fear not where the money will come from to support your family, because when you follow your passion, the money shall and must follow. People often thrive beyond expectation once they pay heed to their souls calling.
As Mahatma Gandhi said “ To believe in something and not to live it, is dishonest”. I believe there is good in the world. We want our partners and children to be honest with us and yet we live our entire lives being dishonest with ourselves.
When what we do and what we believe in is in disunion, a number of evils set in, in our health, relationships and even our finances. When our mind, body and soul are all in sync, we enjoy good health, brilliant relationships and an abundance in every sphere of our lives.
If you are still living a dualistic life, still looking for meaning and trying to find your passion and it seems like the hardship will never end, do not despair. Suffering and hardship is necessary for it is only through own experiences that we grow. We cannot appreciate success until we’ve known failure. Embrace those challenges, learn from them and move on. When you move on from being who the world thinks you are, to being who you really are, then only will you know true happiness and peace. Read More Articles like this at http://www.mysuccessfocus.co.za
