Today people are so caught up in getting ‘likes’ and ‘views’ online that they neglected the elderly and the environment? Would it be that people had a deep sense of void because there were no social norms that promoted altruism and integrity?
In any of these cases, we can reflect on one main point: our level of happiness and satisfaction with life is not as high as it could be. I have felt that sense of disconnect I just couldn’t figure how to fix it. When we blindly chase an ideal of happiness for ourselves, our society and our own happiness can become depleted as we pursue an image of happiness that society has decided for us. (river of dreams)
But the truth is, we will never feel truly satisfied by fulfilling these prescribed images of happiness fed to us by popular media and social media. If we want to find a sustained feeling of deep joy and meaning in our lives, we must change our lifestyles, even if they don’t reflect the values of those around us.
If everyone started to live with the intention to connect to their soul instead of their ego, levels of joy, peace, and love would begin to increase. The good news is, when we disconnect from our egos and reconnect with our souls, we begin the ripple effect of a larger change.
People will begin to feel your intention and trust you more as you work on this – and you’ll be able to trust yourself more as you base your actions and decisions upon a soul foundation rather than allow your ego to drive you. This can greatly improve your success because you’ll be able to make better decisions quicker and thus you’ll be entrusted with more. When others feel you have everyone’s best interest at heart, they will see you as a leader who inspires others to work with the same ethic. You can become a person who positively impacts other lives through a warm hug, a good discussion, or a meaningful statement.
When we speak from our souls, it means we’ll speak with kindness, acceptance, and curiosity without judgement. We don’t need to seek external validation by allowing our egos to puff up our chests. Instead of using your energy trying to impress or defend yourself, use words that uplift everyone to feel welcome and loved. You’ll find that there is more energy between you and the people around you and it feels safer to open up. When we speak from the soul, we can communicate intuitively with the souls of others, rather than ego-to-ego. This deepens our ability to enjoy the moment and have more meaningful relationships. Move slowly, breathe slowly, and you’ll find your words will also be more measured and meaningful.
Assess Your Major Life Goals
If your goals are ego-based, you’ll only create more distance between the ego and the soul because your actions will only feed your ego.
Many happy people live rather unnoticed lives because they are focused on kindness and being a good person instead of recognition and prestige.
You can start by asking two things,
What does the world need?
What are my natural strengths and interests?
Our time is finite and we might as well live in love and not in fear.
When you’re more of your soul and less of your ego you’ll find you start smiling uncontrollably and people genuinely enjoy your company – you’ll enjoy your own company more, too. When you connect with your soul, especially if you haven’t taken time to do this before, you’ll find an unbreakable positivity and strength that no one, not even yourself, can take from you.
