Once, my dear young and beautiful Ameena was in such a plot of her life — where she suffered from her own thoughts — that she had become a great burden to herself and to her own family. Whom she thought were the only roots to her future success, were also failed to recognize her warm heart.
None perceived the assets she captured beneath her mysterious breast. Soon, the hopes, beliefs and faith began to disappear; even her dreams vaporized along with her tears. She felt the whole world was on her shoulders. Nothing around her fits in her inner world. she was all alone with a twisted fate waiting for some miracle to happen.
Sure, it did come in the form of her grandmother to solace her.
One night her grandmother’s heart was consumed by the pain; which she witnessed in the eyes of her youthful grandchild; who was weeping inside the closed room with eyes open.
Without a sound grandma approached and hugged from behind, kissed from front on forehead and gave a life advice to the vulnerable Ameena — who lost in the uncertainty of life: “If it’s difficult for you to create a better future, slow down to your “Instinctual pace.””
Grandmother explained, “The problem of being fast is — you miss the opportunity to bide the beauty of life to its utmost. And the uttermost life lies in the least possible things in its simplest existence. – Naked, pure, gentle and still.”
Ameena wiped her river of tears from her curved cheeks, came to her actual sense after hearing the words of her favourite human and asked “Instinctual pace?”
“Yes, If you wonder what it is!” grandma continued. “Instinctual pace (Instinct – unconscious state) is the innate processing rate of one’s ability to think.
By active attention to one’s own thoughts and surroundings, it helps you to acquire your unique intuition (Intuition – subconscious state) to develop awareness.
And give insights radically (Insight – conscious state) about any event happening within your limited consciousness.
With that intelligence and realization you become fully aware of what to do at which time, how to act at what pace and so on.
In such a way, it creates patterns for reference and helps to organize the thinking process methodically or holistically based on one’s personality.
Nonetheless, the best solutions come from the most important questions that matter in all aspects of life and apply universally. And It is only possible by free-thinking that gives rise to think better.
At some point in your experience – You will ask yourself many questions that truly value your core.”
“Can I ask you one important question, I always ask myself.”
“Yes, my child. Go on.”
“How to think?”
“Haha! Such a grasp; I am going to question the same.” Grandma replied “Well! if you are asking this question to yourself
Always remember, No one can teach anyone how to think, especially how to think better? It is entirely subjected to one’s own psychological and external experiences – which made them who they are today.
‘Everyone thinks’ because it is inherited and unconscious process. However, not many know how to think. That is why we often prone to suffer.
That’s a major challenge almost all of your generation is facing today. You fail in how to master thinking. Because, you are successful in ignoring the things that matter the most.
The truth is, you can’t avoid life. It just happens without your interference. If you notice clearly, everything that is happening to you right now – Only in the aim to make us think, learn, evolve in awareness and continue in consciousness.
Therefore, “At first, try to seek how to think. The latter will follow the owner of its fate.”
That is the best life advice I could ever give to you my young soul. However, that’s not the end of it. Anyone can change for better, think to improve and become best at anything, only if they are determined to act so.
Perhaps, no one can teach anyone how to think or act. But one can teach to oneself and change his situation, when he is aware of what’s happening in and out.
One reaches that conscious state, knows how to think and becomes better at thinking only by “self-realization.”
And It requires your complete life and attention and work to develop that self-realization or establish that amount of self-awareness.”
“Are you following me?”
“Yes, yes! But, but!”
“I mean, I mean grandma! What is the benefit of achieving self-awareness or self-realization?”
“Good question my child.”
“When you achieve self-realization, you achieve clarity and you recognize one basic phenomenon; all these years your own intuition guiding you to solve the most unanswered questions or difficulties. And helps you to improve your life. However, lack of awareness and with full of ignorance, you mislead yourself with an unproductive chaos”
“Well! Something is making sense now. ” said Ameena. “ I have one more important question in life.”
“How to improve one’s life?
“There is no particular way, but all the ways intersect with a common thought. The moment one improves the perception of one’s own life, the world begins to change for the better. Life appears better by thinking better. By developing a great vision and with the aim of how to create a better future that elevates one’s and other’s standard of living with full-fledged efforts.”
“How to make a better future that changes one’s own life, others and the world?”
“By making better life choices and good decisions.”
“How to make better decisions and better life choices?”
“By understanding the difference between making a choice and a decision. And acting as per the goals of that particular situation as well as to meet the specified expectations of any dream or vision.
However, to improve our life, as It demands our entire energies to sync with life itself. But we often tend to ignore the reciprocity of the universal connection. Instead, shift our pivotal senses to seek universal validation.
That’s where the whole perception misleading the purpose of our time and its timing, creating a noise and becoming the source for the unproductive chaos.
Fundamentally, we were created to discover the life out of us. And recreate the definitions of each entity to improve the status of existed calamities for better and exhibit more creativity.
Nonetheless, any aimless fear compels us to create endless fallacies inside our heads. Due to which we tend to withdraw ourselves from taking the right decisions. And find the safety to be secured inside our little world.
Therefore, end up imitating nature and put hold on the possibility.
The problem with our minds is – we seek comfort in the easy things. And the reason for such otiosity is, we fail to acknowledge that –
“Everything becomes simple, when we know how to organize the complexity within us.” And understand how to make use of the resources in the most efficient way as possible.
Despite all the ignorance and diffidence, more often you need to remind yourself – How tough the situation might be! You should not betray your goals. Never be afraid to make mistakes, realize your dream. Your life is your making.
If you think you have already lost your way to the best life, It is never too late to reach your destiny. Do not rush. Be slow, move at your own pace by considering the consequences. Think less, but feel and act more. Be conscious with healthy habits.
Healthy routines help you to be productive and make you better at any profession for long term.
Even if no one supports you, never give up, any way you will succeed. Because you know yourself. When you know yourself well, nothing matters anymore.
The level of involvement we keep in, makes us become better and best at what we do.
If you were involved with life, you wouldn’t even realize how far you have reached within the less span. Because when you focus on improving your life, you wouldn’t bother to compare or judge anyone.
Even if you believed that you started with a slow pace. Over time, you would create your own life race for yourself. And you wouldn’t even mind the duration.
Because the experiences and the personal achievements makes your journey memorable. And these are the true signs of improved life, a matured life.
Therefore, The best life advice ever from me is, if you genuinely want to create the life of your dreams, the most powerful secret and a simple truth to live in that dream of peaceful, joyous and harmonious life is to balance your existence spiritually, emotionally and intellectually.
Embrace each second, minute, hour and each significant moment of your beautiful journey.
If you feel, you do not have time in your life for yourself, borrow it from nature. But do not put yourself down. Feel good from your depths. “After all, it is life. We all need to feel good.”
Set a mindset that suits your pace. Do not skip any page from the book of life. Mount every height, mark each substance, run in the lows, walk in the plains. Hold when you feel tired, listen to the echoes of the hearts and calculate the function of your biology. And reset your life whenever you think and feel it is necessary.
Don’t force anything, be still, be calm and occupied. Let your silence scream and flow with the content of life. Let your fears betray and demons leave you alone.
Find your comfort, watch the flowers bloom and water your soul. Be with yourself and with the person who makes you feel that he is home and build an empire.
Watch your children grow old and foresee yourself in your desired destiny and act period. Every breath is a novel opportunity to create a better’ better. And eventually, “You become what you make use of yourself.”
