The other day I had an interesting experience. I saw how little my own opinions mattered.
Now this may not sound like something big or even desirable, but bear with me.
When I saw how little my own opinions mattered, a deep feeling of freedom surrounded me. I saw with a deeper understanding how what I truly wanted in life was never found through my own ideas and beliefs.
I saw in a deeper level how my desires and dreams would never be the source of my fulfillment. But how the fulfillment, happiness and love we are looking for are always there beneath our personal ideas.
Our feelings of contentment and fulfillment always come from letting go of the personal and going to the impersonal.
I used to be afraid of not wanting to go after my dreams. What if I would find that absolute fulfillment here and now, would that mean that I needed to be satisfied with what I already had?
I didn’t want that.
I wasn’t even aware of that I was still carrying some of these fears with me, before this recent insight of mine.
However what I experienced was something different — An incredible feeling of freedom, contentment and peace.
And the feeling came with a knowing. Knowing that my desires and dreams, not even when fulfilled, were never the source of my wellbeing. And knowing that the fulfillment would always be guaranteed, no matter where life took me and whether or not I’d end up with those things that I wanted to reach in life.
This understanding allowed me to let go of the stress that I wasn’t even fully aware I had been still been carrying with me, and relax more into the now.
It allowed me to lose some of my ideas and goals for my future and become more interested in what life had for me. It allowed me to become more curios about where would love lead me.
When our fears subside we always become led by love.
Those fears of ours are only our own ideas about the future, what if we are not able to go where we want to go in life.
But when we recognize in a deeper level that all the fulfillment and love we want to experience are already here, for everyone of us to experience, life becomes a different playing field.
We become more content in our everyday life and curios about what life has for us, instead of what we can make out of life.
We become less fearful and more led by these beautiful feelings of love and wellbeing within us. These deeper feelings that always take us somewhere beautiful and beyond our imagination.
We move more from the personal to the impersonal and beautiful things are ahead of us. Beautiful things that are already here.
And the feelings of freedom that follow from seeing how this is true are beyond what we can imagine. I hope that you can get a feel of that through my words.
Behind our fears and unfulfillment there are always these beautiful feelings of love and contentment guiding us if we wish, towards life beyond our dreams.
Follow the feeling and the road will be revealed for you when you least expect it.
