There are certain times in your life when you might feel like you are not able to blossom into something. You see everyone around you doing things and becoming something. You think to yourself, what am I not doing? What are they doing that I cannot see? There is a time and a place for everyone. When you look at the examples from the past, you see that there were people who moved far away from the rest of the world to find themselves. However, you do not have to move far away from the world to find yourself. You have everything around you. There is no need to isolate yourself to find yourself. You can do that, sitting in your room or in your office. The first step to doing so is to look for reasons to fall in love with yourself and your abilities.
Blossom into Something
Your aim in life is not just to be present here. You want to do things, succeed at things you do and use your abilities. Everyone has a fear of failure because of the thought instilled in our heads that failure means the end. Failure does not mean that it is the end. You can always blossom into something, when the time is right for you. What you need to do is to find yourself and your abilities. Even though what someone else is doing might seem interesting or fruit-bearing but it might not be your calling.
Look at the universe around you. Look at the people and the different elements of nature. You will find your calling somewhere in these things. Learn to love yourself. Do not forget yourself when you are busy looking for things to love in the whole universe. Include yourself in the list of things that you love. Once you find reasons to love yourself and you set on a journey to explore your inner self, you will be able to blossom. Just like flowers blossom in spring, you can blossom into a new person or better version of yourself at any time of your life.
Wise words for Those who want to Blossom
“This perception that consciousness is the universe allows us to be both infinite and present to all the little details of life. That is, totally immersed in reality. We do not need to move into a cave or a monastery, because we already contain all that we are looking for outside of ourselves. This is truly the meaning of practice: to enter into this creative dynamic where we let go completely in relation to the guilt of being, of doing, of doing too little, of succeeding or failing, of not being this or that, of having certain abilities and not others. We see little by little that all of these abilities and all these limits are illusory in relation to our absolute essence, our original nature. Once we consider the whole of our functioning with love, there is a blossoming.”
