Good day, fellow Alchemist:
Negative thought patterns have a nasty habit of taking over our minds while hiding in statements like:
What’s the point of anything? Why should I try to reach my dreams when they’re so far away? No one really cares if I achieve them or not.
That is why it's important to see the bigger picture and reach beyond our limited perspective.
When it comes down to it, our nihilistic view on life can sometimes overrun our emotions, leaving us to spiral down to our Earthly fate, long before we ever reach our goals.
Why am I bothering? How will my actions change anything? This is too hard; it’ll never work.
In addition to negativity, all of these thought patterns have one thing in common:
A lack of perspective.
The human perspective on life, in general, tends to be narrow-minded and lacks the proper objectivity.
We fail to see the grand design while refusing to acknowledge our role in everything taking place around us.
Those of us with very high goals and low action tend to think that if no purpose is sophisticated enough to challenge us, then we may as well resign ourselves to a life of discontent and boredom.
If we risk continuously giving in to this mentality, even a simple move like getting out of bed may eventually become a daunting task.
This may occur while seeking motivation for small tasks, as well as large ones.
If we refuse to fulfill our basic duties as active members of society and continue to convince ourselves that there is no purpose in taking action, we may be risking everything.
Anything can be thought of as pointless when we don’t have the ability to see beyond our daily lives.
Here's an amazing and virtually unbelievable thought for you to wrap your head around:
We are spirits inhabiting physical bodies in order to explore the third-dimension.
Our purpose is to put ourselves into this chaotic reality and express to the world that which is unique to us.
Anything you can imagine can come to fruition, as long as you are willing to make it happen.
Take Elon Musk as an example. He is deeply inspired by the future and wishes to make his most far-reaching dreams come true, but he claims that his main goal is to evade boredom.
In this wacky unexplainable game of life, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.
We are incredibly lucky just to be here.
In light of these facts, the question What's the point of pursuing my dreams? and Why should I even get out of bed in the morning? should begin to appear unnecessary and almost ridiculous.
After all, your life is happening regardless of whether or not you decide to take action.
With or without you, the world will move on to newer and greater things.
In the words of Elon Musk: I could either watch it happen or be a part of it.
The choice is yours and yours alone.
With love and sincerity,
