Life is a constant battle between pain and pleasure. With trying to reach something and getting rest in the meantime. It is a matter of balance. Where everything is ideally measured in a way that does not overwhelm or bore us. That is the sweet spot we are looking for.
To search for meaning is to find it. To fail to search for meaning is to be left without it.
Turn you’re searching mode on to enable you’re searching tools. We all have those superpowers that make luck happen for us. But it somehow occurs to happen only when we have put the work for it beforehand. Proactive search is the key.
Searching is an Art Form
Doesn’t matter what your quest is it requires a lot of sacrifices and time. Be patient to achieve results. And even more, patient to be in balance. To find the way that will take to your destination. And most importantly your goal, your more profound mission for life. Goal setting is essential for acknowledging your current location and identifying where you want to go. However, we often are getting on a crossroad, during that process of execution. Then we discover something else that we want to focus on. We dwell on it, but it feels even more congruent. That is why our first goal is never our true quest. Imagine it like an onion’s head, which layers you peel each time you set a deeper goal. That is actually how you reach to the core. With action towards every single step of the process.
The structure, we set ourselves, is limiting us and it is self-sabotaging, although it sometimes help us. Searching is a flexible process. Keep your eyes open. Like the famous eastern philosophy teaches us “Everything you have ever searched for is here, inside you”, but you never took a closer look. However, I think changing your context is the trigger to let those hidden locks crack. Constantly exposing yourself to those challenging environments and diving into them.
On the flip side, it is crucial to lay back, reflect and relax. Time is everything you have, that’s why it matters to do those in the right moment. And here is where art comes into play. In my opinion, it derives its creative nature from intuition, “six sense” whatever you want to call it. It is a necessity to stop before you burn out, but not if you are just fearful. At that is what a true seeker gets right. Experience helps to get into the right moment.
Winners tend to win, and losers tend to lose.
Get more confidence if you don’t have enough by managing your goals. Set smaller steps to achieve them quickly. Or if you are confident get a little bit optimistic and set goals that are beyond your current reach. Those two strategies will help you to get on the right train.
What Do You Get Out of It?
Balance is the ultimate spot where we imagine ourselves to be, isn’t it? We have those idealistic pictures painted for the future. In which we have all figured it out and we just sit and do nothing. Instead, peace comes from accepting the fact we are soldiers of our fortune. And fortune is to get created, thus creation requires action. My philosophical self imagine it like this. If you interpret “action” for pain and “non-action” for a pleasure.
Balance is in between.
And that is for life. If you change the process, balance changes too.
Reaching that sweet spot is committing yourself to the single thing you are willing to burn for. While managing other areas of your life simultaneously. Which is the most healing you while pursuing it?
That is my approach to seek balance. Find yours. And don’t forget to share.
