Life isn’t about working day in and day out to please someone else just so we can ‘earn our keep’ and stay financially secure. There’s an underlying theme to life that most people have forgotten, and if we want to understand this theme, we have to open the mind and consider concepts that most of society wouldn’t yet accept.
One of those concepts is that love is the driving force of our existence, and another is that there are higher states of consciousness we can access with meditation and other inner tools that connect us with a reality that’s much realer and more refined than our own.
To explore this greater reality, which exists beyond our surface awareness, all we really have to do is open up to it and let our higher consciousness take the wheel and steer. Our higher consciousness has always guided us, and for the most part, we’ve been unaware of its existence.
One of the most important things we learn as we traverse the spiritual path is that most people have been living life wrong. While survival is an important part of life, we’ve become so enamored with survival that we’ve forgotten why we’re trying to survive in the first place.
The point of survival is to allow ourselves to live, and most people have forgotten how to truly live. Most people stop themselves from having a life that’s worth living, because they’re so caught up with trying to survive every day that they’ve forgotten what it’s like to stop striving and simply exist.
We need to return to simple, unconditional existence. We need to return to a way of life that integrates love and an understanding of the deeper spirituality that reveals itself to those who can open up and consciously receive its presence, and in my opinion, the world will continue to struggle until we can each create this kind of life for ourselves.
We need to create a life that’s worth living, and the best way to do this is to pursue things we enjoy. Pursuing our passions is arguably one of the best ways to get the most out of life, and everything starts to flow when we find our passions and embrace them.
Our love for life grows when we can enjoy our work, but if we stick with some uninspiring job just so we can survive, we’ll miss out on one of the most essential aspects of life: working hard at something we actually want to do.
Our work is meant to help us feel whole, as opposed to providing an income and nothing else. Our work is meant to inspire us and the people it reaches – not turn us into braindead zombies who repeat the same mechanical tasks day in and day out for a paycheck.
Money is the reason so many people work dull, uninspiring jobs, and we have to change our perception of money if we want to liberate ourselves. It isn’t something we’re meant to earn by slaving away, and it can come as a natural result of our passionate work.
While the archetypical ‘starving artist’ is alive and well, I’m comfortable saying that if we find something we truly enjoy and we decide to stick with it, any survival concerns will work themselves out.
Once we decide to pursue our passions, we have to live up to that decision by working hard while remembering to enjoy life. If we find something we really enjoy, we should work as hard as we feel inspired to – even if it means we work ourselves to the bone.
The difference between that work and the kind of work we’d do at a nine-to-five is that we’re actually enjoying ourselves instead of doing something out of a sense of obligation.
Our work will flow like never before when we’re passionate about it, but the key is that we have to wholeheartedly pursue it without looking back. We have to apply ourselves, which can be a lot more challenging than doing whatever mechanical work a traditional job requires.
Most of the ‘jobs’ in this day and age have been designed to keep people intellectually and spiritually numb, and lower class jobs are the worst.
The ruling elite don’t want a society of informed, motivated people who are willing to find their passions and work hard – they want a society of conformist ‘individuals’ who’ll do whatever monkey-minded job is given to them.
This is why our education system is broken, and this is why the vast majority of television we watch seems designed to dumb us down.
It is designed to keep us trapped in a spiritual and intellectual box that keeps us from stepping outside of our boundaries and actually questioning reality, and we have to break this matrix if we want any hope of changing this clearly lost, broken world.
The first step to creating external change is to create change from within, and therefore, the first step to changing the world is changing everything about our lives that no longer works for us, whether it’s related to our work, our relationships or anything else.
We have to make these essential internal changes before we can change anything about the world, and we can only make a positive change by following our dreams and passions. With the power of our higher consciousness, which some people call the ‘higher self’, shifting our lives to match our growing awareness should be relatively simple.
As long as we work hard and remember to have fun, we’ll uplift the rest of the world, which is just starting to awaken to the higher vibes that are permeating everyone (whether they know it or not).
It requires the willingness to find what we want in life and wholeheartedly pursue it, and if we’re willing to contribute to this massive spiritual revolution in whatever way we see fit, the world around us will eventually reflect our dedicated inner changes.
I’m a twenty-one year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
