Finding Balance Between Your Dreams And Your Daily Life
Take a look at our physical bodies, and you will find hundreds of delicate equilibriums – the sodium-potassium balance, for example. The body needs water, but will release any excess which it has.
Physical imbalances cause diseases. Emotional and mental imbalances affect the wellbeing of your mind and spirit.
We often find disequilibrium between the way we lead our daily lives – in other words, our everyday task behaviors and habits, and the “ideal state” which we see our lives to be. We all have a dream, perhaps buried deep in our subconscious, which contains a fabulously fulfilling life we lead.
Such an imbalance is not always obvious to the individual involved. At times, it could just make its presence felt via a soft voice within you, whispering to you about something not quite being right. And it will continue to poke at you until you address the imbalance.
Are you frustrated with your present lifestyle? Do you feel like you are going through the motions, not sure where you are headed? Do you feel a sense of dissatisfaction gnawing at you? Do you find yourself coming up with excuses to explain away certain inadequacies in your life?
One important thing you need to do is to realign your thoughts. Thoughts are energy. The Law of Attraction tells us that we will attract into our lives what we think about. What this means is that when you allow yourself to get steeped in frustration, to think angry, bitter and frustrated thoughts such as how you are cornered, there’s no way out, etc, you are actually attracting more of such circumstances into your life. “Being trapped” thus becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts.
The first thing you need to do is to take responsibility. Wayne Dyer tells us that “you and you alone are responsible for the imbalance between what you dream your life is meant to be, and the daily habits that drain life from that dream.”
Virtually all success and spiritual teachers emphasize this point first and foremost, that we have a choice, and we can influence how our life pans out. It’s no coincidence that the most successful and happiest people in life think this way, while people on the other end of the spectrum tend to be those who think they are subsumed by bad luck and have no control over what’s happening to them.
Think about what your dreams in life are. What energizes you? What fills you with life and enthusiasm? What brings that shimmer of hope and zest into your eyes? It doesn’t matter how ridiculous these dreams seem, to you or to others. What you need to do is to make sure that your thinking patterns are in line with your dreams.
Wayne Dyer again gives us an excellent snippet: “You get what you think about, whether you want it or not.”
