When you were very young you already knew the meaning of life. You were born with this knowledge and over time you may have forgotten. One way to help you remember who you really are and why you're here, is contemplation.
“Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.”
~ Viktor E. Frankl
Contemplation is not the same as overthinking. Contemplative thinking has a meditative quality with a purpose. It usually begins with a deep question i.e.: What is the meaning of life? As you listen for the answer and observe your thoughts, simply allow your awareness to rise above your ego's mental chatter so that you can hear the calming voice of your soul.
Contemplation combined with journaling will help you capture your soul's guidance through the written word. You can write your question and simply allow whatever comes through to be transferred to the page. This will help you get clear, and you may be pleasantly surprised when you read what you wrote.
Your soul chose to come here as a way to grow and evolve through the human experience, and that choice determines the meaning of your life. For example, if your soul chose to learn about unconditional love, then that's the meaning of your life. If it chose to overcome fear, then that would give meaning to your challenges. Look at your life and contemplate what you've learned so far.
You can give any life experience meaning if you choose to look at it from a spiritual perspective. From injury, illness and disease to stress, suffering and pain, there is always something to learn that will help you grow. When you discover the lesson and learn from it, your soul naturally evolves.
Everything is energy, including you. When you're conscious of the energy that flows through your body, mind, heart, and spirit, you will experience the joy of a meaningful life. It's up to you to allow energy to flow to you and through you. Think of love as an acronym for living on vital energy and it will inspire you to love yourself and others as a natural expression of who you really are.
Every morning when you wake up you get another opportunity to choose to be here. Make a conscious choice to show up fully and shine your light and it will transform your life. Choose to be present in each moment, accept yourself and others, contemplate your existence, and you'll experience the true joy of living.
Memorial Day is a good day for contemplating the meaning of life. As we honor the men and women who fought and died for our freedom we can respect their sacrifice by using our freedom wisely. Freedom of choice is what we're celebrating today so it's important that we make good choices.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY
