The POWER of Solitude
FULL PODCAST EPISODE 049
Today is the eighth day of our master life lesson series, and we’ll be going over the power of solitude. Whatever your journey, there will be struggle, in fact the deeper you go into personal development the more struggle you’ll face. You’re not in control of your external circumstances, but you do control your attitude, and when your attitude is low you need to retreat into solitude. This may seem counter intuitive in today’s fast-paced society, but there isn’t enough emphasis on sitting in silence as one of life’s greatest teachers is silence.
I challenge you for the next few days to spend 30 minutes a day just doing nothing and sitting by yourself. It’ll feel like agony because you want to be productive, but you’ll actually get more done once you get back to work as it refreshes your mind and motivates you. Tell yourself the truth about how you feel right now, don’t be scared of stepping into your darkness. Who are you without your material possessions and titles? You are a divine instrument of love and you are here to experience your own unique journey.
A lot of people that suffer become cynical about life, so silence is a much safer way to grow without that potential side-effect. Are you close to burning out? Are you tired more than usual? Are you demonstrating self-compassion? You need to tap into your inner child and live in the moment. I recommend you read the book The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Imagine being your own best friend, how would you make yourself feel better? What advice would you give? It’s okay to stay in the hallway of confusion for a while, as uncertainty is necessary to get to a place of certainty.
To your continued evolution, live it up with POWER, PURPOSE & PASSION!
