The art of living is one of the most important skills to master in life. We are hitting the wall like never before. It feels like things are collapsing left and right and centre in politics, economics, relationships and health.
A lot of people are starting to feel life doesn’t make sense, but this is because we don’t understand how to live. We have fallen into the trap of looking for security in super funds, real estate, or material goods, but what happens if that collapses? What is left? Who are we?
I often ask my clients how much they remember from their 12 years at school? And most people take about 1 minute to sum it up. What they remember or mention might be their first kiss, or sex, their first joint, friends and enemies rather than anything academic that they actually learned.
People don’t remember complex maths combinations, they remember life experiences.
What we don’t learn at school is the art of living, and this is the most important thing for happiness.
When you go to Ikea and buy a bookshelf it comes with instructions telling you exactly how to put it all together. Before you buy a car, you have to get a license so you know how to drive and understand the road rules, but when you incarnate in a physical form on earth it seems that there’s no instructions!
We humans are the most complex thing in existence undertaking a life that is also complex beyond belief and to get through this, stay sane and be happy we need to know how to live. Random just doesn’t cut it any more.
We will not become happy just by going to school, getting a job, having a family, a mortgage and a life in the suburbs. That is not enough any more if it was, we therapists would be out of a job! Instead all parts of the health business are booming, more people are medicated, or taking recreational drugs or suffering from lifestyle diseases
This comes down to not knowing how to live, but we do actually come with instructions, we just forgot. The universe is so intelligent, so compassionate, so loving it has everything sorted. Everything we need to be happy, strong and healthy is there for us, each 2 hours of the day has a specific intelligence and we just need to tap into it.
If you start living in a certain way, you naturally start getting happy.
If we follow this principle and live in harmony with the powerful natural forces, we naturally become happy.
This is known as the Chi Cycle Lifestyle
It’s all about a routine. All natural life follows routine except us, we live randomly. If this happened in nature it would be complete chaos. If tides flowed when they felt like it, plants flowered when it suited each individual plant, or rain fell when it wanted to, it would spell disaster for all life on earth.
We are part of this and we need to get aligned, we need to get up a certain time and apply some cosmic intelligence to the day. Eat breakfast at a certain time, but know what to eat and then what to do after breakfast. We need to know when to work, when to stop work, when to have sex, when and how to sleep, and so on. All of this is connected to natural cosmic cycles.
The whole of daily life, is actually beautifully outlined for us. The Chinese call it aligning with Dao. It is something eternal and once you surrender to it, and follow the guidelines you will see your life changing.
Because people feel lost and confused these days, they look for ways to make sense of life by external means, but this worsens the gap between their external life and their soul. As people drift further and further from themselves the need for medication in order to keep it all together increases. But this creates a separated and increasingly psychotic society.
But the beautiful thing about the future is that the solution is simple. The solution is to return to a natural routine, to a life where we get up early, embrace the sun, do some meditation and chi practice, so we become one with our the cosmic intelligence. We will experience God within ourselves and the beauty and love of creation. This is the time to let go of the things that we don’t want and transform some things that we don’t like into something we love.
We are ready for the day. That means we are ready to embrace others. Then have a beautiful happy breakfast, sit back and be one with our soul before engaging with work. That means we are in sync, we are integrated. Then focus on progress. Lunch time meet friends or work colleagues to celebrate the peak of the day. For the rest of the day, align and feel the support of the universe. After 5 o’clock celebrate the achievements of the day, go home and be happy to be with family, feel inner security and at one with ourself.
By ten pm, go back to bed and to the start of who we are, a soul open to teachings from the higher spiritual realms so that when we wake up and return to the physical early in the morning we are ready to start the whole cycle again.
We are souls having human experience in order to expand this physical universe in accord with the great cosmic plan. Making this universe a paradise is our job and we do this by following natural cycles. This is why we need the art of living. This is our destiny. This is who we are. Get in synch and it’s just a matter of time before this will happen!
