Countless numbers of persons become submerged under their daily pressures and consequently, misplace their sense of wonderment about life. We can attribute the imbalance between body and soul to the unreasonable demands made upon us by our work and the people and situations we devote ourselves to.
Over time if we are not careful the submersion of our lively spirit breaks down making us victims of commonality. None of us are permanent heroes, saints or sages – not even to ourselves. Sometimes we let the sameness of our existence prevail even under the most oppressive circumstances because to change our world would require alterations in our ideology and force us to go beyond the reach of today and well into the foreign world of tomorrow.
When we engage in the art of re-discovery we find a simple way in which we can face life cheerfully once again. We begin to revisit what is best in us once more. We release ourselves from the prison of our negative past affairs and their effects on us. We let go of the things that we fear and we boldly face our truth which has always been right before us from the very beginning.
When we practice the art of rediscovery we find that for everything that has been taken something has been given. Our spirit is suddenly known to us again. We can be in the midst of a crowd and still feel the sweetness of solitude and freedom. Life is no longer a mad, frantic search for power. It starts to take on a sense of novelty and renewed re-freshness. Everyone and every object we come in contact with becomes part of our contemplation, reason and imagination. Our eyes are opened once again and inner-comfort is returned. Things associated with sensation, we determine, have little or, in fact, no deep meaning to us. What was – is not now, nor, need it be our refuge in the future because we no longer carry any dependence on it.
The art of re-discovery affects our appetite for living in all aspects. It lures us in, rekindling our enthusiasm and excitement for life. We begin to have reverence for all that comes to mind and into our view. We start to see each day as a separate life. We escape the shackles of encapsulating captivity – allowing nothing to intervene with the moment in which everything is consistent and meaningful, beautiful and good. Our hyper-awareness of the ordinary makes life extraordinary. The path of re-discovery allows for a fullness of the human experience and the possibility of many attractive prospects and new opportunities.
