You Need to Do This More in Your Life – Personal Growth – Medium
personal reflection ... often

...

I knew, deep down, that rock bands and parties would not get me where I needed to go. So, I left the rock band and began reading more. I focused intently on my education. As a result, I graduated with distinction, and went on to graduate school.

second time > leaving police to be a cartoonist

“Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.” — Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

...

third ... fear of flying ... to learn to paint

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” — Nelson Mandela

...

busyness vs balance

When we ask friends and associates how they are, they usually say, “Busy. I’ve got a lot going on.” We view “busy” as a sign of success or importance. Except it’s not. It’s more a sign that we’ve lost some balance.

...

...

Wherever you are in your life, take the time to slow down and reflect. Take stock of where you are in your life, where you’ve been and where you want to go.

...

You need to do this more in your life. You need to find quiet places. Turn off your devices. Breathe deeply. And then spend some time reflecting.

The Most Important Question of Your Life | Mark Manson
If I ask you, “What do you want out of life?” and you say something like, “I want to be happy and have a great family and a job I like,” it’s so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even mean anything.

A more interesting question, a question that perhaps you’ve never considered before, is what pain do you want in your life? What are you willing to struggle for? Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.

Achieve This. And You Will Become God - Siddha Performance
It is like the cartoon of the man who has destroyed his entire house after numerous failed attempts at swatting a fly.

...

Why do those who achieve it, achieve it?

...

I will Not enter down the road of modeling the behaviors of successful people. For success is a product of non-negotiable visions more than it is a product of behaviors.

...

Thought-Freedom is not freedom of thought. It is the freedom to think only when you want to think. And the ability to have Silence of Mind when you are not thinking.

Thought-Freedom is to have Silence as your default state. And thinking as a voluntary and utilitarian act.

...

When you need the car, you drive it. When you don’t need it, it doesn’t drive keep driving around the block. It sits quiet and still in the garage.

If you were to live in Thought-Freedom, you would have thoughts Only when you wanted to have them. Thought would become utilitarian. It would be a tool. And thus you would only Think when you needed to think. Thus you would have all the great thoughts and ideas, without the noise.

...

There are great ideas coming at you every minute. But you only hear them once in a blue moon. And this is because they are drowned out by the mental chatter. The noise. The constant stream of involuntary thought. The tape-recorder.

...

It has been said, “All of man’s ills arise from his inability to be still.”

But what has not been said is, “The inability to sit still is the result of the greatest disease of mankind: Involuntary Thought.”

...

Put succinctly, if you train yourself to achieve Thought-Freedom, you become a living, breathing God.

...

What I’ve given you in this discourse is the actual fine print underlying Enlightenment, Moksha, Nirvana, Samadhi, Freedom, Peace, Bliss, and Liberation.

Become trained to do this, and you get all of the above for free.

Simply put . . . This is the only thing we must achieve. For upon achieving this one thing, all needs, desires, pains, and miseries vanish.

And one becomes a living god.

Namaste.
