I personally always try to strike a balance in my life.
Random Fact: I am a Gemini, and yes I do believe in zodiac signs, so I have a lot of personalities to me- and each of them want some time!
Though I enjoy all the materialistic aspects of life, I do also like to ensure my mind and soul are catered to as well.
Hence, I am going to talk to you about some insights of Buddhism that have really stuck to me over the years of my readings about energy and spirituality.
Let’s begin with the first 2 Noble Truths…
Dukkha or pain, is a natural part of all of our every day lives. Despite the magnitude of this emotion, it is rarely experienced simultaneously with positivity.
Over the years, the one way I cope with this is through understanding Samudaya, or the origin of the cause of suffering. This is usually always attachment for me, and once I understand that, handling my emotions becomes a somewhat easier task.
I am an emotional person, I love a lot and soon become extremely comfortable and used to those people that I give my heart to. When there is ever any change in these relationships, I find it extremely difficult to adjust and accept it, which makes me terribly sad.
Over the recent years, I have noticed that I am growing out of people,I am craving new adventures, different energies, and am wanting to learn different things. This is not because there is anything wrong with those people, this does not mean I want to cut them off or love them any less.
However, I just need to find people who are also heading towards the same path of life as me.
This has caused me a great deal of stress and confusion. I didn’t really these feelings understand for the longest time, because this are new feelings for me.
However, one day, during my reflections whilst writing in my diary, I started to understand everything I am writing to you today, and once that concept because clear to me, I felt much more at ease.
This is because I realized where my discomfort was coming from, I realized what I needed to do to for things to get better, and that clarity itself helped me focus on how to make that happen.
So whenever you are down, take a moment to understand where that is coming from, once you do- your next steps genuinely become a lot clearer. It is easy to be impulsive and act on what you are feeling, without truly understanding it- but don’t. You will regret it.
On another note, I love the blue and white tones in this look. I rarely wear this colour for some reason, but I think I am going to change that.
