Life Is A Chain Of Ups And Downs

Life can feel like a roller coaster ride, and I want you to climb into the front seat, throw your arms in the air and enjoy the ride! There’s no getting away from the fact that life is full of ups and downs, as well as twists and turns… but success depends on how you choose to approach the ride. 

Life is unpredictable. One day we can be sitting on top of the world and the next day we can be hit with a major problem that we do not know how to deal with. Dealing with life’s ups and downs is like being on one big ride on the roller coaster… it can make you dizzy.

If you can adjust yourself to the unpredictability of life, you can sail through life. The mind cannot stop imagining things for the future. But when it comes to reality, it always differs from the imagination of the mind. The mind imagines something else, while life happens out of its process. No matter what you try to achieve in your life, you are bound to experience twists and turns. There is no straight path to success. You have to go through all the different phases of life before you reach a stage, where you can call yourself successful.  

Whenever you try a new path, you will experience the twist and turn on the path. The problem is not with the path, but the problem is your unfamiliarity with the path. Once you get familiar with the path, the same path becomes a road routine and you move to explore some other path. Many times life follows its natural process, but when it doesn’t follow the plan of our mind, we experience the same situations as a challenging one. The challenges don’t lie in the situation, but the real challenge lies with our perception. It’s our idea that separates us from the present reality of life. Life is uncertain at every step. You just cannot predict your life based on what’s happening outside. The life that you experience outside, a similar life also exists inside. Both the inside as well as outside life hold the power to influence each other.  

 We assume life to be a physical reality, but that’s not the actual truth. Physical reality is only the consequence of subtle reality. The subtle reality happens within the physical reality. If you figure out the truth of your subtle world, you can also unlock the truth behind every creation.”All the twists and turns in life make life interesting. If life would have been predictable, then it would have been boring, but it’s not. No matter how much experience you accumulate or you have unlocked the wisdom of life when it comes to life, life always has something different to offer you in terms of experience.  No matter how much experience you accumulate or unlock your deepest wisdom, life as a whole still holds the power to offer you something different which is yet not part of your experience.   This is how life behaves. To become one with the twists and turns of life, we have to learn to drop our ideas of life and stay open to the ways of life. Goals or destination is not the problem, but staying rigid to the path is a problem. If you want life to happen in a certain way, then you experience the problem.  Take your steps forward, but don’t hold any idea of life. Embrace life at the moment and look for ways to take things forward. Even if the midst of all the ups and downs of life, you will always find a way to move forward.
