1. Lighten up.
First, and foremost, you have to lighten up. You must have a sense of humor. There are studies which show that those who lack a sense of humor have a very weak immune system. Laughter is very alkalizing. Stress is acidic. Seriousness, too much of it, causes inflammation in the body. When you get upset your blood pressure gets high and your eyes turn red. It’s not healthy, which leads us to the next point.
2. Live healthily.
Drink a lot of water. Get a lot of sun. Go outside often, have fun, visit nature. Meditate, breathe, exercise, dance, smile, laugh – play! Make love. Love life, love yourself, love others, love unconditionally. Give. These are all very simple, natural things.
3. Be clear.
Be clear on why you are here. What is your passion? A lot of us don’t know what our passion is. Most people are unclear and have only a vague idea of what they are here to do, if any at all. What I’ve learned, from my experience, is that it’s very easy. It doesn’t take much effort. You don’t have to sit down and stress over it,
“What is my passion?! What is it?!”
All you have to do is weigh out your options.
At every moment, you have choices, options to choose from. Choose which one is most exciting to you and do it. Choose which one feels best and do it. Take action, move toward it. Every step you take is a step closer. The more you do what excites you the most, at any given moment, the closer you are to realizing what your passion is, what your individual purpose is in this life. It’s that simple.
It’s important. If you want to feel good, if you want to offer anything to this world, if you want to be of service, it’s very important to follow your excitement and allow it to lead you into discovering your passion.
4. Take it easy.
Although it’s very important, there’s no rush to find out what your passion is. There’s no need to fret, there’s no hurry to return “home,” or to reach an enlightened state, it’s here now. Where are you going? There’s no need to get anywhere. You’re here. Be here.
5. Pursue your passion.
Doing what you love and pursuing your passion are two entirely different things. You can do what you love all the time, but are you pursuing it? Are you making it your living? Is it allowing you to live comfortably? If not, pursue it.
6. Know thyself.
We all have one thing in common, and that is we all want to awaken, we want to come into realization of who we truly are. That’s the whole point. That’s why we’re here. We’re here to experience life and experience ourselves and experience the process of awakening, of realizing what we truly are, which is infinite, endless, ever unfolding, ever expanding potential.
We are God, but not the type of God most people believe in. Not just one guy. We’re more than that. We’re infinite. There’s no limit! We are boundless. We are limitless!
Seek no more. Your search is over. I’ve given you the answer:
You are God.
7. Enjoy your life.
So, now there’s no need to seek. Now, all you’ve got to do is live your life. You’ve got to enjoy the process of becoming. It’s not about reaching enlightenment, it’s about becoming enlightened. So, lighten up. The process is what we’re here for. We’re not here to arrive at a destination, we are already enlightened. It’s that simple, maybe too simple, for some.
Life’s motion picture is in motion and we are at play, right now. Enjoy the play and act, because that’s the point.
