As you realize that you are alive now, you also realize that it is better to be alive than to be dead.
'Alive' is not just about being, it's about doing, having and becoming what you desire of.
'Dead' means not being able to do, be, achieve or enjoy anything out of life.
Now that you are alive, are you doing what the 'alive' are supposed to be doing?
Or are you playing 'dead'?
Different people have different ideas of the things to do that is fun for them.
You have your own ideas and preference as well.
You could identify it yourself what it is and do it.
Or, you could just experiment by playing along with what world is offering you and discover it yourself.
Everything happens only in your mind.
Any thought that occurs in your mind doesn't necessarily has to be true. It may just be a thought. You don't have to respond or do anything about it because it's just a thought that you have.
We live in a world of thought but we think we live in a world of experience. You are not what you are, you just think you are. Your mind project the thought to your conscious mind which makes it real or seem to be real. Then you feel it as real as your mind project it to be.
“A thing is a thing” is what your mind says. When actually there is no thing. No something. And no anything. It is just a creation of the mind.
Again, just because a thought is happening in your head, it doesn't meant that it has to be true. It could mean that you are not afraid of the things you thought you are afraid of.
In other words, we are afraid of what we think, not the thing itself.
Because you are distracted!
Even right now as you're reading this, your mind is wandering. And you are not sure why you are reading this in the first place.
Perhaps you are supposed to do something else. Something that you need to do in order to be productive, but you just don't do it.
You lose your focus because you are distracted. Distracted by the small things, the unnecessary, the unimportant and the unknown.
In order to be productive, you need to get your focus back.
Where exactly you should be right now?
Here, where you.
Everyone has preference on how to live their own lives.
You can either live by following other people's path, or you can live by your own path.
It is definitely your choice.
You have to make up your mind and be committed upon which path to choose.
Because if you don't, you are automatically following others.
