Where are you going with your life? What is your purpose? - -It revolves around reframing your thinking to break out of a boring, grumpy existence where you're living your life everyday with the same thoughts and feelings. - -Many people become disconnected from the real experience of life because they're just stuck busy and worrying. They feel stuck, have compulsive thoughts and feelings, they feel like life is meaningless or they're living on autopilot and that they are powerless to change things. We can get stuck in a patten of thought referred to as the Hedonic Loop where we fixate on what we don't have or acquiring what we believe will make us happy, but when we get those things we don't turn out to be any happier than before so we keep seeking the next thing. The whole of modern society is based on scarcity and focusing on what we don't have, making goals, and achieving notable things. - -Change from the inside-out is often how one can break this cycle. We often find that changing our outside circumstances (e.g. moving to a different neighbourhood, switching jobs, etc.) doesn't change our feelings or thoughts. Mindfulness can allow you to escape this noise, and escape thinking about what you don't have by being more present in the world around you. Reconsider what would truly make you happy in life. What story are you telling yourself about what will make you happy? - -Groundhog day shows us that: - -* we can learn through experience what works for us and what doesn't by trying something new each day and learning through small, incremental changes; -* the way to happiness is through being present, helping others, being grateful and kind, and finding a real meaning in the world; -* time is a gift not an annoyance: it is something you have to do things with, not something to get through to the next thing; -* the quality of your moment-to-moment life is more important than whatever perceived destination you're heading towards; -* your personality is fluid, not fixed, and it is not your identity; -* not everything is going to have a goal or an end state, but what matters is the act of doing it; - -Journaling helps to reflect on the day. You can use it to record what has changed and what you want to change next. It can help to declutter the brain, help you remember what happened in a given day, can help you realize if you're in a pessimistic or negative loop, and it can help you not lose sight of your feelings and experiences. - -Being in the present is a peak state where you feel most calm, most present, most alive, "in the flow state of life". One of the goals is to connect to this state or reconnect to it. It's possible that we had it in our childhood—a time before education, where we spent most of our time being instead of ruminating. It's also a state when you realize what you do doesn't matter, yet it does at the same time. For example, making life more comfortable for someone you can't save (e.g. Groundhog Day protagonist being kind to a homeless man who is doomed to die each loop). Instead of fretting over the stuff you truly cannot change, you do good where you can. diff --git a/content/garden/greenhouse/ b/content/garden/greenhouse/ @@ -22,9 +22,6 @@ The Greenhouse is the place where new things are incorporated into the garden.
