When I think about what’s most important in life, the conclusion that always comes to mind is giving all of yourself. It doesn’t matter what that consists of, as it can be giving all of yourself to your family, co-workers, or friends, all that matters is that you make a firm commitment to play an objective role and keep your word.
Whether or not you truly make a difference in the grand scheme of things is always too abstract of an argument to even consider, and while we can clearly identify some concrete examples, like if a fireman saves a child from a burning building, we can easily say, “Yeah, that’s definitely an important contribution to society,” but how often is life that clear-cut?
Most of the time we’re performing mundane tasks that seemingly do not make a big impact in the world, so the only way we can really keep things in perspective is by remembering it doesn’t matter what you’re doing, only the perspective that you do it in.
It is in maintaining this unity consciousness mentality that allows us to be fully satisfied and connected with Source, and not allowing external distractions to knock us out of that state of being is the major challenge. This is where self-discipline comes into play, and through practices such as meditation, we can learn to master our thoughts and remain in control of our minds regardless of the circumstances.
