Beyond Overwhelm, There is Possibility

We call this the knowledge era but what we have created is overwhelm and burnout. And yet, natural intelligence is everywhere.

“I’ll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything.”Alan Watts

The classroom model of the person at the front of the room, even without the microphone, is the one to be trusted. Just like the experts instructing us on how to be successful with best practices to follow.

However, we are not dough to be transformed into delicious healthy bread or cookies made with natural ingredients. There is no universal recipe to follow. Maybe what is so challenging is that we were taught there was one way. But what if that way no longer suits us or what our hearts are asking us to explore.

The debates of who is right overwhelm us, like the news around us, rage on and on with expression of opinions, advice and so called knowledge.

Yet, on the horizon, a new era whispers promises of healthy existence. In this era, the focus shifts from proving our intelligence to others to trusting in ourselves. It values solitude, allowing us to breathe, question, and reflect away from the insanity of the mainstream.

No Overwhelm Required

In some regions, the concept of hiking does not exist; people naturally walk in nature or busy streets and carry heavy loads. There’s no need to go to the gym. Movement is a core element of existence.

When we appreciate living in a beautiful place, we may not need an escape. Just opportunities to explore at our own pace.

Consequently, rest and pauses emerge as integral parts of life. What if movement and rest effortlessly blend into our life’s rhythm. What if there is magic in the not knowing.

When we pause, our thoughts and questions emerge. There is nothing to say. The pressure to always have the answers fades away.

Imagine actively embracing silence. This silence could reveal insights worth sharing, leading us to craft a world that treasures the natural rhythm of inner harmony. By being our true selves, we open the door to a world beyond imposter syndrome where the need to impress, be superior or special no longer exists.

“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”Alan Watts
