Productive Use Of Time & Energy

I just read an article concerning the lead singer of the successful band called Imagine Dragons, lamenting how bands often criticize one another. He couldn’t comprehend why people do such things. Although I am not really a big fan of this group, I am aware that cristicisms and crude sarcasms are so prevalent these days and it’s not just in the entertainment industry but also in the political arena. The lead singer, Dan Reynolds said “We have a finite amount of time while we are here to create change and to do great things, to do big things. It’s just to me, counterproductive to all of us as artistes to engage in menial, self-indulgent conversation..”.

Dan added that he attended a seminar whereby Oprah Winfrey described how she got to where she is today. Apparently Oprah expressed that it was all about our intention i.e. “Where do we spend our time?” , “How do we spend our words?” and “What are we going to do with our finite time on Earth?” . In my opinion many people don’t use their time and energy productively. Interestingly, this ties in with the messages channeled from the Other Side by Mr. Lee Carroll which described the general population as little kids in a playground making a lot of noises. Sometime ago, an Archangel described to me the Soul Age (not human age) of most humans here and it seems that the majority of people are just Young Souls, with lower levels of wisdom. Hence many humans are immature and their behavior tends to be self-serving. Lee Carroll’s channeled messages suggested that the more mature souls ought not force these inexperienced Young Souls to change as compulsion often does not lead to desired results. Instead, such people are asked to lead by example – by being tolerant, compassionate and peaceful. As one maintains calmness in the midst of chaos, it is going to cause others to wonder how such a person could achieve that. At some point in time, these younger souls may want to seek advice or help in developing these traits in themselves.

However, one needs to remember that a change in Consciousness takes time. For the moment, I believe it is better for us to do a Life Review of ourselves by asking ourselves questions like the following:

“AM I living to my fullest potential?” and if not, “How can I be the best version of myself?” Such contemplation may lead us to action that utilizes our personal time and energy more productively.

The Divine Needs Nothing, The Human Wants Something.

Those who had undergone deep soul searching would have realized …

They actually need nothing from this physical world.

The reason is … ALL that they will ever need lies within themselves.

The source of happiness, courage, compassion, love, etc. is truly found inside every individual.

Wanting on the other hand is an act of a human being who is not fully aware of his own existence and divinity.

Due to the belief of lack by one’s ego , the human being tries to attain “desired states of emotion” via purchasing material objects, accumulating titles, acquiring memberships,etc.

Such acts only create temporary states of fulfillment but in the end, the wanting surfaces again -causing endless cycles of searching for something that could help compensate the imagined lack in oneself.

One of the greatest truths of life, is that our soul is adequate on all counts. The conditioning of society is the chief reason as to why one chooses the passive self of insufficiency. Advertisements usually project a sense of inadequacy with it’s viewers causing them to want what the vendors are selling. Governments too, inject fear into the masses, deceiving them to continuously vote for them.

Now, more than ever, people should start to obtain answers away from external sources. The path to enlightenment is … the road leading inward.

In truth, we are more magnificent than we could ever imagine.

Spending moments of silence each day, reflecting on the inner self helps us to re-connect with our powerful Source of energy.

Only then, do we realize, we are perfect beings of light – needing nothing but only wanting something when we shift our consciousness back to being just a human.

So, ultimately the following question begs to be answered:

Who do we choose to be?
