“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind – you are the one who hears it.”– Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul
What are the things you really want in life? What are the things you have always yearned for? A relationship? A family? A career or a big house? Everyone has a different list based on life experiences. Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, presents a special teaching on understanding what you really want in your life.
But what happens when you get these things but you still are left unfulfilled. What if what was true that you just wanted to feel good inside? You really yearned things such as a family or successful career gave you excitement and meaning. What you really want is a total sense of well-being and to feel “okay” inside. Does the outside really determine how you feel on the inside?
Sometimes the conditioning of the mind “mindset” determine how you feel about things but is often based on experiences from the past. Singer believes that there are many choices we make in life, but in the end, it all boils down to one basic, underlying decision: Do you want to be happy, or not? It’s that simple. Once you make the decision to commit to your own happiness, your path through life becomes clear.
We have beliefs and rules about the way life “should” be. We think that when this happens, and as long as that doesn’t happen, then we’re willing to be happy. But what happens when we release our expectations and let go of our resistance to reality? Watch this video to learn more.
