Sometimes we feel tied up in the knots of demands and expectations of others. We lose our own desires and vision in the hope of gaining acceptance by others. The whole idea of “fitting in” can be so exhausting and is equal to a life imprisonment. Certain behaviors are expected from us, and even our success and failure is defined by others, how pitiful is that?! By suppressing our natural energy, we are forced to live a certain life. Our heart already knows what it wants, but the fear of becoming an outlier is stronger than our desires.
We see human machines walking around us looking at their watches constantly because they cannot afford to spend their own time luxuriously. We are running around, working so hard to gather resources so that we can afford materialistic luxuries, how about affording our own time?!
The real danger to our mind is a suppressing our vitality, a volcano which is ready to erupt inside us and now is cracking our vision. The most ignored and disregarded essence in our world is our sub-conscious mind. We have dreams that were too high and then we decided to dump them in the corner of our mind. There is a pile of them which influence our behavior from a dark side. Directly we might feel nothing, but indirectly, we are accumulating sources of stress, anger, and disappointments. Think about a failed romantic relationship which has an influence on our behavior; we start building higher walls around our heart and guarding it with caution. If one experience can influence our behavior to this extent, what about our continuous denial and suppression of our natural energy.
All that stress and anger we feel are coming from that dark corner of our suppressed thoughts. Suppressing your thoughts is dangerous, it is dangerous to keep all those inhibitions in our mind. The longer we suppress, a possibility of catastrophe becomes higher. This suppression of thoughts can drive us to the point of insanity where we cannot control them, but they control us.
Do not give up on your thoughts, face them and then let them fly like a free bird. Give your time to yourself to better understand your mind. Do not ignore yourself, find a healing outlet for your mind, meditate and let your energy flow freely without any blocks. Make a promise to your heart that you will always be available to listen when he speaks.
