Don’t lose the adventure!
When as children we are full of energy and excitement and full of adventure with the things around us. Why is that we lose this? We lose it because we are constantly told don’t do that, don’t do it like that, be careful, take care, you cant do that, you wont be able to do that.
We listen to this many times as a child from parents, guardians & perhaps teachers and we simply take on board the don’t do’s as something we take as a given and abide by. In doing so we lose the sense of adventure that we are born with.
A child will think nothing of jumping off a chair say and have absolutely no concept of gravity, fear or danger. The fear is something that we are not born with at all. It becomes part of us through the experience of life. It is a fact that as infants, humans are born with only two fears. The fear of falling and loud noises. Everything else is a learned behaviour and self imposed.
Humans are very often creatures of habit and conformity. Compliance with others will often mean an individual conforming with their friends and are very much influenced in their thinking, certainly in their formative years by parents, social groups and peers. As such, this is a natural formation and evolving of the individual growing into an adult. Whether these are correct for the young mind to absorb and act on is of course subjective. Our sense of adventure often departs us as we grow into adulthood, because we take some knocks along the way and we begin to conform.
Once we begin down the road of conformity we lose the sense of adventure and the comfort of conformity will take hold.
The individual person’s thinking is responsible for progressing mankind since the beginning and since human beings have the in-built ability to think for themselves their unique individuality is something that should be encouraged in our education systems.
The adventure of life and all that it brings; with the falling into depths of despair in the valleys and the exhilaration of the mountain tops we climb, it is truly a tapestry. A tapestry filled with emotions that make up the human experience. It is this experience that gives us our uniqueness as individuals since all of the events that make up the experience are our own attitudinal approach to the events and steer the outcome.
Our conformity in matters arising in life are not necessarily the correct path to follow.
Emerson said Conformity is the enemy of prosperity. This statement is as true today as when first uttered.
The philosophies of the great thinkers throughout history can be connected with the laws of science which have direct correlation with the natural laws of life and the Universe. The power of natural law is inescapable and binding. This is a wonder of the universe that cannot be ignored and should simply be embraced.
Science has shown and proven that human beings are a form of energy; that our thoughts and emotions are real living things that have life and power within them. They speak a Language that the Universe understands. It surely follows that every human soul that has the faculty to think, should indeed at the very least be made aware of such laws and make their choice of implementation or not.
The laws that govern the universe cannot be broken; unlike the laws made by mankind. Our world is made up of natural wonders and each one is a testament to the law of the nature and the overriding supreme power of the universe.
It follows then that if any person that is in synchronicity with their own power of awareness and uses the natural laws to flow with the interactions with others , harmony will ensue.
The tapestry of life is made up of every action and interaction that we have. This is truly magnificent. Do not allow that sense of adventure to dissipate. Ever!
