The power of awakening is strong. People are in a habitual state of life in ordinary times. Your brain is a genius, who tells you the most labor-saving way of life. People live in unspoken rules they do not recognize or realize without knowing. For example, there are always closer convenience stores and better restaurants. None of these hurts, but if you look at your phone before bed every day or think it is easier to lie on the couch than to take a walk, you're stuck unconsciously, stuck in a restriction you don't even notice.
None of these is your fault, not even your brain's fault. This way of life had a great protective effect in ancient times, it is an evolutionary mechanism that humans naturally formed. Our ancestors lived in nature where dangers may be encountered at any time. Taking the customary path and making repeated choices is relatively safe for life. For instance, conformity behavior, it's right to follow everyone, because this is one of the strategies to survive.
But for modern people, we don't have to face such environmental threats every day. Rather than trying to survive, we should try to "live better". So, living by habit is never enough, what we need is a little adventure that involves cognitive awakening and behavioral change. Have you ever thought that What you really want? Or what should you do to live a better life? Having this kind of awareness means that you are different from most people, that changes have begun to gradually occur in you, and that the power of awakening has burst out from your heart!
What benefits can awakening bring us? And why is living by habit not good enough? A popular phrase ''I suck'' has been circulating recently. Besides, in the old days, people used to say ''As long as I like it, why not?''. And of course, you can. But it is a pity that you can only live in your comfort zone, and you can't look beyond the limited vision to see the vast world. Awakening also means stepping out of your comfort zone, which is another kind of adventure.
Choose one or two challenges that you don't usually do but are good for your body and mind. For example, try to say hello to strangers and give your colleagues more positive feedback if you are shy; If you don't like to exercise, when taking public transportation, you can get off two stops early and walk to your destination, or climb a mountain or go for a walk on a holiday. You will find that you will not only have a little more fun in your life, but you will also be able to see things that are impossible to see at ordinary times, which will become the nutrients of your life in the future, and then discover new things.
This is the benefit of awakening. Is it amazing? Not at all, not even a natural thing. Awakening can happen at any time, anywhere, and it's never too late! It can be casual and serious at the same time. Because changes can be small, or big enough to change your life. It depends on how you awaken. Always ask yourself what is the thing you really like? And what is the most meaningful thing for you? Awakening is always after deep thinking, but don't forget to practice, in order to make changes.
Want to break through yourself? Start with awakening. Let yourself shine! Your passion for life comes from your inner small universe. When the small universe shouts and calls loudly to pray, the big universe will devote all its strength to help you realize it. The moment of awakening is like the big bang of the universe, and a new possibility is fully activated at this time!
