Grief, sadness, anger, and disappointment—all these negative emotions are a part of basic human life. These are essential emotions that help people develop their emotional wellbeing and strength. Without grief or sadness, people wouldn’t know how to appreciate happiness when they feel it.
The emotions that make you feel uncomfortable are the emotions that help you grow. Perhaps, the only thing that you need to teach yourself is to not stew with these emotions. You should never let them take control of your life.
Sometimes, feeling the emotions and recognizing how they affect you is enough. From there, you need to learn to let go and let the good emotions prosper. When you sit with the negative emotions and not let them go, they could eat up all the positivity in you.
Nobody can tell you what would happen to you. It’s like there are never enough good days to prepare you for the bad ones. When...

Every single human being has asked the question at least once in their lives, "What is my purpose?" In my experience, the answer that people or religions have given me is less than comforting, to say the least. When I started my inner work path, the answer became obvious to me, and what had seemed like religious riddles also started to become more apparent. For example, in Buddhism, the Buddha says the mind is everything we think we become, pointing to the mind as the creator of reality for the material plane. So in more relative terms, our thoughts are projections, and those projections are what we see, think, and feel. This means we ultimately have control of how we want to see the world around us. This concept is also strongly used in Zen.
Jesus said in the Bible, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you." If you are not doing the required inner work, then this message might not find you....
How resilient are you? Resilient strength is your ability to bounce back from the challenges and difficulties that life throws your way. It spells the difference between handling pressure and losing your cool.
The road to resilience is never easy, but it is a path you will want to take. Because resilient people maintain a positive outlook in life, they can cope with the challenges of life more effectively.
It is not about not having stress and negativity in life. Instead, resilience teaches you the value of standing up even when everyone else wishes you to fall.
Perhaps the first thing you have thought of was how people learn to become resilient. Is it something that can be taught and learned? Or is it innate in some people and not found in others?
If you feel like you are not resilient enough, you may begin to wonder if it is something that can be learned. You wish it is, and you are lucky. Resilience may be...
How much time do you spend at work on a weekly basis? If you spend more than 40 hours doing the job that you do, then you probably have less time to do all the other things in your life. Your mornings are always rushed, and so is the rest of your day.
Do you have the time to stop and reconnect with your spiritual self? As much as you would like to submit yourself to spiritual meditation, you just can't find the time to do it. Sometimes, it can feel like there is just so much going on in your life; there's no more time left to think about how you feel or what you think.
You are too focused on getting things done that it has become quite hard to just sit down, be quiet, and meditate.
No matter how successful you become, there will always be a part of you that will yearn for spiritual growth. This is the part of your human self that will remind you of the importance of spirituality in order to survive...

Everyone has asked themselves at least once throughout their lives, “why am I here?” With the philosophy of Nihilism increasing in popularity, the modern approach to this question is that there is no such thing as a pre-defined purpose. In fact, Nihilists would say that there is no purpose at all. This point of view would have you think that the Universe just happened by accident, and the way things work perfectly in sync with one another is a mere product of chance. Whether this point of view is accurate or not—like all other philosophies—is uncertain. Still, one thing is sure: this philosophy does not help us navigate the adventures we find ourselves in throughout our lives, especially when we are stuck and need a bit of external help to guide us toward the path of least resistance. Astrology, on the other hand, has been a tool that helped humanity understand the concepts of Fate, Purpose, and...

Who doesn’t feel tired after a long day at work? Does it feel like all the energy is drained out of you at the end of every week? Everyone has felt like this once in a while, and sadly, some feel like this almost every day.
Some people who work in an office have side hustles they want to put their hearts and souls into. They are the ones who struggle with low energy and frustration, and so they often end up not being able to finish anything at the end of their working day.
Or, if they do, they do not entirely feel confident in what they were able to produce. These people tend to repeat the same thing, hoping for better results, but they only end up feeling even more tired than when they started.
Why do you...
