Crisis, Trauma and Loss Move Us Forward

Amazing how we as humans operate our mind and body in this life.  For all of our advancements and human ingenuity, it seems like we fall short when it comes to the evolution and awareness of our consciousness.  All too often we participate in life, without really being actively involved in our life.  We go through our days as if there is no purpose or reason to be here while thinking we have plenty of time to worry about these things at a later time.

In addition, we often know what we need to be doing in life, but we sit on the sidelines thinking about it, rather than doing it.  We wait for some miraculous sign or some loud voice to boom down from the heavens and share with us the insight that is already within us.  We constantly look for signs, beg for assistance, and look to others to give us that fulfilling prophecy of our existence.  

When we don't get the answers we need for our life, we keep running down the highway hoping to find something that will give us meaning, purpose, and desire.  Sometimes we crawl into our own corners and hide from life, because we have just had enough of the searching for the answers we need.  Sometimes, we just say you know what, I am going to chase the pretty lights of this world only to find they are an illusion.


There are those of us that just sit back and believe our days are made up of waking up in the morning, going to work, surviving a day with the boss, and then going home.  We think that life is supporting our self by doing the mundane, and we fail to realize that there is a greater purpose for us being here.  We go through much of our life with blinders on, only seeing what is right before us.

We wait for something to happen before we begin to look into our life and see what it is that is there to give us a big kick in the pants forward towards our purpose.  As Joe Dispenza said in his book, Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself, "we wait for crisis, trauma, loss, disease, and tragedy before we get down to looking at who we are, what we are doing, how we are living, what we are feeling, and what we believe or know, in order to embrace true change."

It may be part of our journey to experience these difficult moments so that they wake us up.  There might be another way as well, if we just begin to question our existence and ask the difficult questions.  Often we want to avoid the difficult part of life, but in the end it is the part that brings us closer to who we are.  It is through these adversities that we begin to really get to know our inner mind and body.  Our journey on this earth is about evolving our consciousness through awareness.  The more we become aware and the more conscious we become, the more life opens up with so much to offer.
