Every morning, we get a chance to be different. A chance to change. A chance to be better. Your past is your past. Leave it there. Get on with the future part.

The body that you can see and touch cannot take you into Being. But that visible and tangible body is only an outer shell, or rather a limited and distorted perception of a deeper reality. In your natural state of connectedness with Being, this deeper reality can be felt every moment as the invisible inner body, the animating presence within you. So to “inhabit the body” is to feel the body from within, to feel the life inside the body and thereby come to know that you are beyond the outer form.
But that is only the beginning of an inward journey that will take you ever more deeply into a realm of great stillness and peace, yet also of great power and vibrant life. At first, you may only get fleeting glimpses of it, but through them you will begin to realize that you are not just a meaningless fragment in an alien universe, briefly suspended between birth and death, allowed a few short-lived pleasures followed by pain and ultimate annihilation. Underneath your outer form, you are connected with something so vast, so immeasurable and sacred, that it cannot be conceived or spoken of — yet I am speaking of it now. I am speaking of it not to give you something to believe in but to show you how you can know it for yourself.
You are cut off from Being as long as your mind takes up all your attention. When this happens — and it happens continuously for most people — you are not in your body. The mind absorbs all your consciousness and transforms it into mind stuff. You cannot stop thinking. Compulsive thinking has become a collective disease. Your whole sense of who you are is then derived from mind activity. Your identity, as it is no longer rooted in Being, becomes a vulnerable and ever-needy mental construct, which creates fear as the predominant underlying emotion. The one thing that truly matters is then missing from your life: awareness of your deeper self — your invisible and indestructible reality.
— Eckhart Tolle

After awakening, one can spend many months, or even years, grieving the loss of the sense of value one once placed on the things of life, and even life itself.

Improving the tenor of your inner voice begins by listening to what it is saying. When you experience a distressing thought, identify its true nature and give yourself the choice to think or feel differently. In the process, negative thought pathways will wane from disuse and you will begin to forge new self-enhancing neural pathways. When you are feeling joyful and calm, reflect on your accompanying thoughts at that moment. Cherish these thoughts and relish them frequently knowing that these pathways become stronger with each repetition. Over time, you will transform the infrastructure of your brain.

Eating, laughing, and talking together with people you love or share affection with.. that’s all one needs to be happy. Isn’t it ?
Such a simple way of life, and yet we lose most of our years chasing careers or things that don’t last, or even matter in the end.
The years slip away, and we lose them in pain - from regret, anger, grudges, our own expectations. And with them we lose all the love and affection we could have shared. Those unable to love are angry and sad all the time, since the love that remains in our hearts and is never given away turns into bitterness. The love you hold back, wasn’t meant to be kept, but given away. Love given away freely, keeps our hearts tender.

Just because the days are repetitive at the moment, it does not mean you are not still making progress. You are not wasting your life. You still have time.

What do you need to be playful about right now?
Laughter is medicine.
Humor is medicine.
Playfulness and lightheartedness are medicine.
Biochemically and energetically what is catalyzed or released in your nervous system and energy field when you laugh and when you're playful are life-enhancing and life-enriching currents.
Laugh more. Play more.
Deliberately find reasons to experience playfulness and laughter in your day. If you've noticed that days have gone by and you haven't had a good laugh, find the means to move yourself into that state. Whether it’s videos of kittens or corny dad jokes, give yourself the avenues you can to experience heart-centered enjoyment regularly.

Hi! Can you do something for me?
Relax your shoulders. Let them fall down. Now tense them up for a moment really hard. And relax again. Use your hand to massage them gently
Relax your jaw. Open your mouth, stick out your toungue. Let your mouth hang open for a bit. Now puff your cheeks. Relax your jaw again
Relax your neck. Move your head side to side slightly. Stretch your neck muscles a little
Relax your arms. Let them fall by your sides. Wiggle them! Now stretch them a little
Take a deep breath. Hold it for a moment. Breathe out
Straighten your back. Tense it up for a little. Relax
OKAY THANK YOU AND BYEEE

You’re most powerful when you honor your own rhythm. If your circadian rhythm is nocturnal, don’t follow those “waking up at 4 am changed my life” routines because they’re not for you. If you function best when you focus on a single task, single job, single goal, then working half a dozen sidehustles may not be for you. Honor your own rhythm, work with it instead of against it, and you will achieve so much more than if you blindly follow what’s considered “correct” by social conventions of the time.
