In our lives we get bombarded with problems and issues on a daily basis. There is not a moment that we do not have to deal with a problem or worry about it. This is the experience of everybody’s life.
The ongoing struggle of dealing with never ending problems in our minds moves us away from the ability of being peaceful and happy inside. We work very hard to reach happiness through different means, but the more we seek it less we find. The problems of life surround us in a way that sometimes we feel suffocating under their pressure. Life becomes hard to take under this pressure and many fall into deep anxiety and depression, many may think of suicide under this immense pressure.
How would it feel if when we are under this immense pressure, we could suddenly enter into the same life without any problems and worries? How light would we feel when the weight of all those problems are lifted from our shoulders? Obviously we would feel much lighter. We would be able to move away from sadness and worry for the first time.
The fact is that we are designed to be happy by nature. It is all the things we learn since birth time that may lead us seeking happiness in many things that would in turn become problems we worry about. In almost all cases it is not the actual problem that is stealing our happiness away, it’s the thinking about it that brings on the cascade of negative emotions and unpleasant body sensations.
Our mind is trained by habit to have this ongoing thinking about problems as a background noise. This becomes an automatic process over time and the worry goes on and on. This process has harmful biological effects due to outflow of stress hormones into our system in long term. Now if by practice we could stop the process of negative thinking and imagine our life without these problems, all of a sudden the harmful process stops and our natural default state of inner happiness can be restarted. This is a very powerful mental exercise that takes a lot of practice to master. Each time we do this exercise, it feels like we switch into a SECOND LIFE while still being ourselves, but without the problems. Lighter and much happier. It may be hard to believe, but we actually start to feel lighter and happier for longer duration over time. Because of the flexibility in our biological system, after a regular series of exercises, our system gets used to the SECOND LIFE biological state. A more resting, calmer and happier self emerges.
We get A SECOND CHANCE TO A BETTER LIFE, the life we were supposed to live.
Ultimately with practice the second life and the first life become one and we get the chance to live like the way our nature was designed to live. Everything changes, but yet nothing has changed, we would be able to live the same life, love the same people and fight the same battles, but this time with a higher level of inner peace and happiness.
The reality is that this is not going to be easy, but it is certainly worth the effort. After all, inner peace is the most precious product in this universe.
