A mantra is a word or phrase repeated frequently to aid concentration and meditation. Be it a familiar quote, lyric, or word of wisdom from a fresh mind, it is what pulls you through your emotions and brings you to a rational and accepting mind. A great deal of our lives are learning to understand and cope with the environments and experiences that we face. Sometimes we need a bit of inspiration to pull us through the tough moments, and then we’re set.
I’m all for affirmations, tidbits of wisdom, or any knowledge passed along from someone who has experienced and been through what I am going through presently. I receive daily emails from a website called www.tut.com They’re daily emails from “the Universe” (really, a man named Mike Dooley who is an author and motivational speaker and has done this for the past 10 years). These notes from “the Universe” are delivered to remind us that we’re part of something bigger than ourselves, that our dreams are as real as we imagine and allow them to be.
From academic stresses, to overwhelming expectations at work, growing into a better self mentally and physically all alongside the toll of maintaining a relaxing yet interactive social life; we all have moments where we lose control. What we have to realize through all of this is that losing control is perfectly normal and acceptable. Why? Because you cannot control everything. Actually, you cannot fully control anything besides yourself, your actions and your reactions.
At the end of the day, that is all that should really matter. In the most unselfish sense, you are all you should be worrying about controlling. Once we all realize that we are in full control of only ourselves, we will become well-oiled functioning separate parts that could work together to create the most impressive machine of all. It could be that simple if you let it be.
If you’re interested in the daily emails from “the Universe” head over to http://www.tut.com/account/register and sign up. They’re worth the smile and boost of inspiration you’ll acquire each morning, I promise.
