Some would say that we are born into a life of struggle, and it’s how we get out of this and live from the centre of our being that matters. But what is this struggle that we must escape from? Well, it can take many forms, like belonging to a family with little income, having too much money (believe it or not, an over-privileged childhood has been known to lead to stagnancy later in life, though this is not always the case), having a physical disability, being put into foster care, being shy, being over or underweight, having abusive parents etc. In fact, the list can go on forever, because at some point in our lives, we must face situations in which we are forced to overcome fears and learn new skills like reading, knowing how to communicate effectively, basic arithmetic, riding a bike and swimming. Even phobias such as a fear of spiders or heights are seen as a personal struggle.
But stop for a second and breathe. Is life really an up hill struggle?
As a race, we have come so far, yet certain things have remained the same since the beginning, such as the desire to be more, the frantic search for appreciation and the hectic race to be the best. Will we ever evolve to a state where we can find true peace instead of constantly searching outside of ourselves for validation? Will we ever set up systems which treat each person as an individual instead of turning us into a robotic herd? Will we ever see life as a beautiful journey full of possibilities and joy?
My forthcoming eBook puts forward, among other things, the notion that we are already great by nature, and that we no longer have to compete with those around us. Could it be true?
