When we sit in solitude sometimes we reflect on things, people, and situations that took place in our lives. In and during those times, we often wonder how or why things go wrong and sadly sometimes we may; and hopefully realize, we are own our own worst enemy. It is important to recognize that there are things that are out of our control; things imposed upon us. However, there are many things and events that we do have a say in and instead of being proactive, we are instead reactive; thus, causing us to be the architect of your own destruction. We sometimes absorb situations instead of filtering through them to see what’s worth our heightened emotional state and by doing this, we create a shade of grey in our lives that cause us to continually be on shaky ground. When in this state, everything becomes an issue, we find ourselves in combat not just with others, but ourselves, which only perpetuates, the weakness. When we are more rational, we are more able to discern the cause and effect of a situation and be less likely to be reactive and maintain our emotional alignment. That is why it’s so important to build foundations that are on firm ground in order to endure the many tests life will through at you. And on this ground, it’s easier to withstand the chaos than succumb to it.
Life is an ebb and flow and how we receive and deliver can be the major difference to how we go with the current. Yes, it’s sometimes very necessary to be the salmon swimming upstream and there are times where it’s not and we’re simply just being dramatic. Mastering our environment may sound like a laborious task, but it’s not. It’s essential for ones well-being and something that can be handled simply by weighing what’s important against who and what isn’t. The Biblical proverb of building ones house on solid ground is equal to the fable of the Three Pigs simply said somewhat differently.
No trade-true architect would recommend any structure build on unstable ground, so why would you build your life, which is considered a Temple on such?
