"The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing."
— Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
The importance of adapting to the demands of our work on this planet is the simplest way to conquer yourself.
Fundamentally, you must find time to properly retreat from the world and those around you, to recharge and find inner peace. Either through praying, meditating, or reading — it is probably the most critical action you can take for your protection and overall grit.
Undoubtedly others will attack your emotional vulnerabilities in many different scenarios, even if they are unaware of it.
I promise you that scrolling through social media you won't find it. Microdosing on dopamine brings ephemeral release, at a lower energy field.
The collective is already interconnected.
The only way you can have true inner peace is when you can respond towards injustices or any egotistical energy that might be around you.
Peacefully respond to what makes you angry.
Real authority comes with proper command and control, out of a place of intellectual respect in which you are the example by action.
Your inner-peace should not be dependable on anybody.
Irrespective of external events, or even how people treat you, find a way to be a fortress of rational calm and tranquility — build up the correct direction towards the light.
The fast track to inner peace is to meditate and treat others with love and empathy.
Do the necessary work.
“In order to cooperate in the material worlds as agents of a divine power, the spirits temporarily have a material body. By the work required in their corporeal lives, the spirits improve their intelligence and, by observing God's law, they acquire the merits which will lead them to eternal happiness.”
— Allan Kardec, The Spirits' Book
The holiday season is one of my favorites as it brings everything out. A time to reflect upon your year, do deep work, catch up on sleep, exercise more, etc.
Your ability to find inner peace and tranquility is paramount. You only evolve when you can find it, irrespective of your circumstances.
