ROAD

 

There was a time when I looked at the world with a little hope, my future was unknown because I didn't know what I wanted to do.  I felt like I was a player in a chaotic game. By luck, I stumbled onto new ideas and practices that helped me reconnect to myself , to my heart and my interests, and then clarity emerged into my life.

The problem wasn’t that I didnt really know what I wanted to do, but it was thinking about what I should do. I put pressure on myself and felt stressed out, I felt like I was no longer of any use. But when I accepted the present moment as it was, it freed up the amount of negative energy inside of me. And when I stopped resisting, I felt very weak.

When I look back at the hardest moments in my life, not only do I see their purpose, but I also see that deep down, I always knew what step to take next. But at that time I couldn’t see this because my vision was clouded by my fears.

The solution maybe was to see through what held me back from connecting to my heart and to my desires. My fears dictate my life, but I began to deliberately challenge my fears by taking actions.

So I started listening to my heart as best as I could. I said to myself , " What would happen if I take a step forward ? ". By doing this action, I discovered that most of my fears were not real. 

With time, I was able to sense what was right for me. And now I navigate freely through my feelings, and my desires can never be put down.

Well, I’m not going to tell you what to do, because there’s no same formula, and I’m not expert in that domain.You know the way you can pick what resonates with you and apply it to your life.

Whenever I feel confused and don’t know what to do, I calm down during while my mind is speeding along, trying to figure everything out. I often lay down on the sofa and just breathe, and sometimes I take a walk, or watch a movie.

When I listen to my heart, I notice what I feel pulled to do. I trust my inner wisdom to know what is right for me at that moment.  I become quiet and focus my attention on my heart's area.  I ask my heart questions and wait. I don’t always get a great answer quickly, but I try to listen every day.

Whenever I’m stressed, it’s not because life is stressful but because I’m entertaining stressful thoughts, becoming quiet and reconnecting to my heart, helps me to know what to do to go forward.

Of course I don’t have resolutions to my life, but I live it day by day and always hope for something better.

I clear my mind by writing my thoughts on a paper, this seems to give me better access to my heart. So I begin by writing what’s on my mind and end up writing what’s in my heart. After writing for ten to twenty minutes, I get all the craziness from my mind on the paper, and clarity emerges. I can feel my heart becoming warmer.

I sometimes talk to my heart  and  feel like I’m connecting to an intelligence greater than me.Then I begin asking myself what a tiny step that was able to reconnect me with my desires. So I relax because I did the best that I could, and life becomes better and my thoughts brighter.

  12. Feliz 2021, com saúde, para si e todos os seus, Nassah!
    Uma belíssima e sábia forma de lutar contra os medos e vencê-los ... a escrita realmente pode servir de catarse!... E é um ótimo instrumento de auto-análise!... Quando paramos para pensar em tanto que nos aflige, realmente uma grande parte, quase nunca ocorre... a vida, de alguma forma, é muito mais criativa do que todas as situações que pensamos prever...
    Um grande abraço! Bom Ano!

  14. I also belive that the best advices are inside us and when we need help, when we feel lost, the best thing is to look inside us, listen to our feelings, listen to our fears too in order to find the right answer.
    Stay strong and stay safe and have a Happy New Year!

  15. Bela a opção quando dizes: "[...] comecei a ouvir meu coração o melhor que pude. Eu disse a mim mesmo: 'O que aconteceria se eu desse um passo à frente? '. Ao fazer essa ação, descobri que a maioria dos meus medos não era real.[...]".
    Verdadeiramente a maioria dos medos não são reais, mas servem-nos de "aviso" e despertam-nos para o que realmente vale.
    Que o presente ano nos seja por presente.

    Por aqui, e em toda a Europa, os contágios estão a disparar assustadoramente, com a nova variante do vírus de origem britânica, segundo se consta...

  26. Hello, Hassan!

    How are you? Tu es malade? Quelque problème particulier?
    Dis-moi quelque chose, s'il te plaît.
    La Pandemie au Maroc, comment est-elle? Au Portugal, les choses sont plus au moins.

    Baisers et bonne journée.
