The more mechanical and routine life one lives, the more uninspiring, dull, and sluggish the quality of life becomes.
There is really no fun in living a pre-defined and secure life.
Sure, there is comfort and steady money, but the fire to live totally and door to newness takes a back seat.
Hence, people are drawn towards drug abuse, titillating entertainments, gratifying junk foods, revenge travel to beat the normal sparkless life, shallow flings, finding ways to rekindle sex life in married life, workaholic, ways to get quick rich, excessive social networking, partying too much, etc. to get temporary fire in life.
Despite the temporary kicks, most people live a passionless life as they choose to live a non-understanding pleasure-centric life.
Superficial Living and Mental Health Disorders:
Nelson Mandela quotes, ‘ there is no passion for being found playing small in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.’
Everybody is born to achieve great potential in life, live a higher life with an elevated psyche that is light-hearted, healthy, and welcomes newness.
But we quickly settle in the smallness, mirrored by heavy social conditioning and current trends of market influences.
The fancy assumptions of a happy life, which most people strive for, make us take decisions in haste. Be it choosing a career, a partner or starting a family, or anything. All choices are made from a shallow mind heavily conditioned by the environment one is accustomed to living in.
The result, a well-adjusted and compromised pleasurable life with little to no aliveness to it.
The common mental illness they receive psychiatric treatments are GAD (Generalised anxiety disorder), PD (Panic disorder), SAD (social anxiety disorder), OCD (Obsessive-compulsive disorder), PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), major depressive disorder (MDD), and lastly, PDD (persistent depressive disorder).
Now, can we connect how a superficial life with no real understanding of our deepest desires leads to a plethora of mental disorders?
How to Live an Inspiring Life?
We human beings fail to realize that material wealth, relationships, love, sex, career advancement, fame, glossy and overconsumption lifestyle won’t give what our minds really crave.
All that the mind ever wants at its core are peace, freeness, inner contentment, a silent psyche, a certain lightness, a sense of feeling relaxed and feel alright.
But it craves for all these desperately through material consumption (people, events, and situations) in the outside world.
But more and more consumption had made people realize the inner void is increasing more and more.
One feels more lonely, empty, meaningless, and purposeless in daily living. Since we are not entirely machines, the thirst inside us to live a free and peaceful life forces us towards anxiety and depression issues or temporary pleasures.
But treating the brain or satiating the body will hardly give any result.
We need to look at our restless mind, turn within, and question why my life is so uninspiring, passionless.
Maybe the honest questioning of ‘who the mind is’ and ‘why it never feels alright’ despite consuming endless things and adding more wealth is a key to an elevated way of living.
Maybe the answer lies in understanding the mind and what it deeply wants.
Ralph Waldo Emerson powerfully quotes, ‘ the only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.’
Decide not to live a shallow life and choose mental peace over material comfort. All mental slavery happens because we choose comfort over peace.
For that to happen, we need to understand the actor ( the mind of you and me) and concentrate less on the action that proceeds later.
Work relentless in understanding who we are, as the ‘ I’ is the prime most identity from which all our life endeavors emerge.
Throw light on the mind and bring clarity on that. A beautiful and empowering life emerges from it.
We hope our highly motivational and uplifting uninspiring quotes and sayings help you come out of your comfort zone and reclaim your inner freedom.
