I find balance in my life difficult including spirituality and not being so negative when it seems like that's what I struggle with daily.
Someone sent me a wonderful picture the other day – a huge picture of the galaxy and the cosmos and across the picture was an arrow pointing to this little speck of dust that was the earth with the words “you are here.” This my friend is the essence of spirituality, it is understanding and accepting your place in the universe. We all allow the unimportant to occupy far too much time in our heads. But occasionally you have to pull right back out of the here and now and see those trivial arguments, unpaid bills, day to day worries for what they actually are. And in the grand scheme of things they are pretty unimportant. In 100 years you will be gone from this earth, in 1000 years nobody will ever have heard of you, in 1 million years the earth itself will be uninhabitable…In millions of years from now the universe will likely implode and everything that ever was and ever will be will become nothing. That huge gas bill doesn’t look so important now, does it?
Take the time to step outside your life on a daily basis. (Yes, you do have time, you will make time) Ask yourself – will this matter in three weeks time? Three months? Take the time to ask questions that lie beyond the confines of your own life and experience. As you start to understand that your worries have little impact either on the wider world or for your future self, you will start to feel the pressure of all that negativity start to relax. And it’s a virtuous circle, the more you relax, the easier you will find it to be objective about your problems, the less you will worry, the more positive you will feel, you will feel more inclined to meditate and explore your own spirituality. You will have spiralled out of the negativity trap. That first step is all about changing the way you think, getting some perspective. Once you have done that, the negativity will start to fade and a new, happier you will have the confidence to take control of your life.
