Every so often the world may be treated to a YouTube announcement or an occasional billboard update on when the world is supposed to end, and with every missed date comes a disappointment for some. Now, don’t misunderstand, The love of life is everything, but let’s be honest. The world as we know it is not sustainable. Either we end the world ourselves, shifting gradually and gracefully into newer and better ways of thinking, or we let the world collapse and be forced to make the necessary changes to survive.
Fear is often associated with the world ending, but when we understand the differences between “world” and “life” then we would find that most of the fearful thoughts that we have about the world ending are unwarranted. When we realize how this current “world” concept thrives on our fear to stay a powerful reality, we’ll begin to see how flimsy this conceptual reality really is.
The world is a concept. It’s filled with an abundance of physical experiences, yes, but how we interpret those experiences is only a mutual, collective concept. Together we make the world by the belief(s) we all share about it. So, how in the world did we make such a mess? Well, it certainly didn’t happen overnight. Most belief systems we share today began way before any of us were even born. Yet it continues to be passed on successfully from one generation to the next. Changing the current world concept won’t happen overnight, either. But the sooner we all get started changing some of our collective beliefs, the better off we’ll all be.
Many of these beliefs, however, are necessary to adhere to. For example, it is necessary for the collective to believe that eating a healthy diet and frequent exercise helps the body to perform optimally. And taking care of our Earth will not only benefit its inhabitants today but will benefit future generations.
On the other hand, there are a lot of unnecessary beliefs that do impact the collective negatively. For instance, we believe that money is the ultimate goal, even at the expense of never knowing who one really is. We believe that time in exchange for money is fair instead of time in exchange for real, self-expanding knowledge. But one man’s hell can also be another man’s heaven, right?
We’ve all heard the saying, “No one really knows what tomorrow will bring.” We’d like to add, “…especially when it’s believed that it’s perfectly natural to allow complete strangers to have control over it.
How much control does each individual really have over their tomorrow? With natural and man-made disasters, the news coverage of every event of every moment, and the idea that a God can snuff out your life at any time, it’s no wonder anxiety is an increasing pandemic among Earth’s population. Constantly living in “survival mode” is not a sustainable lifestyle. Eventually, one of the fears is going to appear in its natural form. It has to because emotion is energy, and a natural flow of energy that has become slowed or even stopped do eventually form (external and internal) into a physical blockage or mass.
But despite all of what seems to be against us, we do have more control over our tomorrow than we think. It is understanding that once we control what we choose to believe and not to believe then we’ll begin to regain more of the power to change each of our own stories which will in turn, ultimately change the world concept. It is this belief in the world concept that disempowers us, and the world’s basic premise is this:
“Our world must be feared.”
Fear can cause an individual to manipulate and be manipulated. Under Mr. Fear’s control, a person can be persuaded to think, say, do, believe, whatever he wanted. So, to conquer Mr. Fear, we must begin to reduce our focus upon him and his magic tricks.
Mr. Fear is everywhere, so it is going to be difficult at first to avoid him. But over time individuals will become wiser and will begin figuring out how to get around his magic props for survival. Using some “thing” on occasion is one thing, but when a person becomes dependent upon this “thing” then this “thing” or tool becomes a crutch. This is what the smartphone has become. We have become dependent upon it, so it is no longer a tool. The smartphone has become a crutch.
Getting around these magic props will take a lot of skill and patience. Now, again, one man’s hell can also be another man’s heaven. So, if you’re okay with being dependent on this device or any other, please feel free to ignore this article completely. But one of the skills needed to get around these magic props will be the ability to become extremely resourceful. We must learn how to use technology for what it is, a tool only, and not find ourselves solely dependent upon its existence.
If all of the technology on this planet were rendered inactive for a 24-hour period, how much of our lives do you actually think would be affected? A small portion of our lives? Or, all of it? What if this disruption of service lasted for more than a week or even months? Would you be able to work? What about being able to make transactions to purchase essentials? Most stores would resort to accepting cash only as a means of operation, but what if you could only withdraw a certain amount of money from your bank account(s) per day, or even month? How would you plan for your everyday survival?
Questions proposed like these aren’t asked to create an environment of fear, they are asked, in fact, to help create the opposite. By allowing complete strangers’ control over every aspect of our lives, we have become more like “sitting ducks”. If you want to reduce the stress and anxiety of not knowing what tomorrow will bring, continue reading to see how you can gradually regain control over your life while preparing for a “most-welcomed” end of our current world structure.
So, that we are completely understood, Flower of Life Coach is not suggesting the preparation of the end of anyone’s life, nor the end of all of creation itself. Remember, “world” and “life” are not the same. The world is a system of various. beliefs and ideas. Life is consciousness partaking in these various beliefs and ideas. And again, this world’s basic premise is fear. So, it is the end of this basic underlying energy of fear that is suggested we need to prepare for, which is absolutely nothing to fear at all.
But old habits are hard to break, right? Plus, we keep hearing about the soon-to-be-imposed forced vaccinations, and martial law. Everything that we don’t want. There’s an old expression that states this, “if you want something to really happen just keep talking about it. Since “life” is a probability game, and there are many possible outcomes in any given situation. Why not see this current, drastic shifting of events as something that is needed to bring about something beautiful? Or, are we too far gone in this present belief system to think so optimistically?
What is it that you want to experience? Instead of getting caught up in other people’s fear frenzy, think of how these sudden changes of events could actually benefit you and your loved ones. The trick, however, is while everything is shifting, you too need to gradually begin shifting your way from dependency to independent thinking and self-sustainable living.
What Is A Sustainable Lifestyle?
A sustainable lifestyle is one that is conscious of how Earth’s natural resources are being used. An individual who lives a sustainable lifestyle attempts to reduce their carbon footprint by either driving less and walking more or riding a bicycle, drive an electric vehicle, use less energy in their home, or use alternative energy sources such as wind, water, and sun. Sustainable living is also being able to sustain your lifestyle without any or very little assistance from outside sources such as grocery stores, utility companies, and other giant corporations that have a monopoly on the buying and selling of basic life essentials.
Here are 10 questions to ask to find out if you are on your way to a sustainable lifestyle:
- Do I recycle properly and regularly?
- Do I shop using reusable cloth bags?
- Do I turn off lights when not in use?
- Do I unplug devices when not in use?
- Do I have the skills to supply my own essentials without the use of a corporation?
- Do I have the means to keep myself and my family safe and warm during a power outage?
- Do I walk or ride my bike to places that are close and carpool as much as I can for distance driving?
- Do I think of ways to minimize purchases that are packaged in plastic wrapping?
- Do I have the skills to make my own clothing?
- Do I have the skills to grow my own food?
Getting started can seem quite overwhelming, but implementing changes a little at a time will help with positioning you closer to a more sustainable lifestyle and more control over your tomorrow.
How are you planning to use these current world changes to improve your life and the lives of those who depend on you? Are you stuck in fear-mode? If so, here are other ways that you can overcome anxiety and fear. Let us know by commenting below how you are making the necessary changes to prepare for the end of the world.
