What is reality to you? Is it the dramas you face when you are out there in the world or is it what you find when you go within during moments of stillness (when you are with your heart rather than your head)? To me, reality is who we are deep down inside: spiritual beings having a human experience.

It can be a challenging one, which is why it’s so important to find ways to detach from our perceived “reality” (the outside world). When we completely identify with the problems, dramas and stress that surround us, we create anxiety for ourselves.

When we believe that life is a struggle and that we are simply meant to survive it, we are not aligned with who we truly are. In all my spiritual readings and even in this morning’s meditation, I am reminded that joy is our highest purpose.

We are meant to be happy and at peace. We are meant to strive and not just survive.

We must find ways to reconnect with our bliss. Make the time in our busy schedule for what we love doing the most. When we do what we love (for me that’s writing, creating, spending time in nature, traveling, doing yoga, being with my family and friends), we can’t help but want to share this joy with others.

As Deepak Chopra says in the 21 day meditation experience: “when we are happy, we are delighted to use all that we have to serve the world.” That is our true purpose and our veritable reality. It’s what we are meant to do so it shouldn’t come as a struggle.

If you think your “reality” is a difficult one, find ways to transform your mindset and realign your life so that there are more moments of bliss. Start today: take a moment or two to do something that makes you smile and feel just a little lighter. And if you would like to dive deeper into the topic of defining what reality truly is, I highly recommend A New Earth By Eckhart Tolle:

A new earth, Eckhart Tolle, present moment, consciousness, awareness, spirituality, personal growth, personal development,
