We spend our days racing through life as if we are running around in a cloud of illusion.
What does this mean?
We are working so hard, missing time with our family and friends, just to have the latest of everything. Material possessions have become so important that we have forgotten the true value of life. We are no longer grateful for the small things (having a meaningful chat with a stranger, going out of our way to make someones day, sunshine, a smile, kindness).
It appears most people are searching for happiness by looking outward rather than within. How can we understand that the excitement of purchasing a material possession is not long lived therefore we need to keep buying more to keep that feeling.
It seems like a lifetime ago but I was in that rat race of wanting more and thankfully I suffered financially which meant I would learn the greatest lesson of all and I’m so grateful. When I purchased something new, I would feel great at that moment but it was so short lived, by the following day the feeling was gone.
We are chasing that rush, the adrenaline, the excitement a false reality. If we simply looked within for happiness we would certainly reduce the need to buy the latest technology, must have the latest clothes, buying fancy cars and that new home with all the latest furniture.
I live with my wonderful Husband in our humble home, drive a simple car and buy second hand clothes and I’m probably the happiest I have been in all my life.
And lets not forget the health and beauty industry make alot money from people needing health supplements, joining the latest gyms, cosmetic treatments, makeup, weightloss trends, visits to the beautician etc.
I could touch on the topic of self esteem but will probably write about that in another post…stay tuned.
There are many ways to learn how to stay within and not look outward for happiness but regression and hypnosis therapy are a very useful tools and I would highly recommend.
Take the time to connect and spend some time on your own.
