The “More, More, More” Mindset Leads To Broken And Empty Lives?

Wholeness Guide

If you are at a campsite and if you want your barbecue pit to heat up very quickly, the last thing you'd probably think of doing is to pump a huge amount of flammable liquid on it. If you're a responsible camper and know your way around your barbecue pit, you would use a mindset of layering on small twigs, other larger twigs and finally branches and logs on top. That's how you manage the fire.

Unfortunately, such long-term thinking is not rewarded by the modern world. We want the best the world has to offer right here, right now. That's how much of a rush we're in, not surprisingly, we believe in a mindset that the more we have, the more valuable our lives become.

We have completely erased the wall between value and price. We size each other up based on how much stuff or rights to stuff we have. We create this mental hierarchy and people with the most things are at the top. In the Western Hemisphere, a significant amount of people kill themselves every single year because of this mindset.

This is quite shocking because they are all provided for, they are not starving in the streets, and they have more than enough to eat. People are eating and living better now than ever in history, yet people are still killing themselves. This is not only about official suicides. There are other ways to measure suicide.

Other ways people kill themselves are through drunk driving, drug abuse, and accidental overdose. The mindset of the more stuff you have, doesn't necessarily mean the more you've become. These are two totally different things and two totally different tracts of thought. Sadly, modern society teaches us that they are one in the same.

You are worth more than the sum of the stuff that you consume. You are worth more than the status people accord you. It is also a surprise that people live broken and empty lives because they are trapped in this endless mindset spiral of more, more and more.

The more they eat, the hungrier they become. The more they drink, the thirstier they become. The more money they have, the poorer they feel. This applies across the board. Thankfully, there is a way out.

The possible solution

What is the way out? Well, instead of more, more, more; why not focus on a mindset of less, less, less. Learn to let go. Focus on what you already have and learn to love what you already possess instead of beating yourself up desiring stuff you don't currently have. The old Zen Buddhist Maxim quote "less is more", is more relevant now than ever, at least to those of us living in the Western world.

If you believe that your life is missing something or you're living an empty life, you might want to rediscover the concept of wholeness. You are more than just a consumption machine. You are more than just a demographic statistic that is supposed to be marketed to. You are more than your ability to make money. You are more than the status people accord you.

By looking at yourself as a self-enclosed whole organism with its own sense, own desire for purpose and meaning, your life and your perception of life starts to change. To get the inside scoop on an alternative path to personal meaning and reality, click here.

What’s The Big Deal With Emotional Wholeness, Anyway?

Wholeness Guide

Have you ever sat down and just chilled out for a whole day? I'm not talking about playing a video game or watching stuff on Youtube, but just completely chilling out: possibly outdoors checking out some natural landscape or natural features, sitting down on a bench, watching the sunset. Have you ever done that? If not you are missing out on one aspect of being complete - emotional wholeness.

If you had, and you're completely honest with yourself, don't be surprised if you come to the conclusion that there's something off your life, something doesn't feel right. You can't quite point what it is but you think that there's something missing.

You may be doing well enough at work, bills are getting paid, your mortgage is covered month after month, the kids are doing well enough from school, you can buy whatever you want, your debts are manageable, you rarely freak out when you get your credit card balance at the end of the month, but regardless of these, something seems missing.

You might want to consider emotional wholeness. You have to understand that the sense of contentment is an art. A lot of people think that contentment is some sort of product that can be bought. When we buy stuff that's worth a lot of money, that item is more valuable. If you are able to afford something that other people desire, you must be important enough.

We got so caught up in the outer indicators of value that we have lost sight of value itself. We are so caught up in buying contentment through getting more and more stuff that we confused value with price; possessions with being. Not surprisingly, many of us find ourselves in a situation where the more we buy, the less complete we feel.

It's not suppose to work this way. Wholeness enables you to occupy the moment. There's no need to explain; there's no need to be somebody that you're not; there's no need to make excuses; there's nothing to worry about. The past is the past, the future is yet to happen and here you are, in the moment, enjoying it and being in it.

The problem is we have lost sight of the concept of wholeness, we are so bombarded with so many different signals that throw us off the whole concept of wholeness. We've reached the point where most of us have forgotten the whole idea of wholeness.

Maybe, if we buy enough stuff, contentment and wholeness will come in. Maybe if we live in a big enough place, this will kick in. Again, this is just in the back section of your mind. this is real. This is the kind of emotional treadmill we find ourselves in. The more we buy, the more we consume, the more we burn out.

Invest in the way out

Instead of running yourself ragged on a treadmill, has it occurred to you that maybe, you can make things easier on yourself by just getting off the treadmill? Yes, you're supposed to level up until you breakthrough and get the prize. That's how it's marketed, at least.

You might want to reconsider the power of stopping and the power of the infinite now. Click the image below to learn more about emotional wholeness and how you can achieve it using practical steps.

The Connection Between Mindfulness and Healthy Eating

When you hear the word mindfulness, most of us think about meditation and yoga. We don’t necessarily think about eating well and the connection between the body and the mind. When we are feeling stressed out and agitated at the world, most of us assume that it is because we have a problem with our mental state rather than turning to examine the effects of the foods that we are eating.

Truth be told, many people who claim to have insomnia in actuality have a caffeine addiction or something similar. We become very cut off from our minds and our bodies both, and we stop realizing how it is that the foods we eat and the drinks that we consume have an impact on our bodies and our state of mind. When we are grumpy and agitated, sometimes it isn’t because we simply woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Sometimes it is an indication that we have a food intolerance or have had too much sugar, or maybe we drank too much coffee or too many energy drinks or soda for our bodies to feel content.

Eating More to Lose Weight

Healthy Meal
Sample of a Healthy Meal

Many people would be shocked to realize that eating more frequently is actually one of the greatest and most effective ways to lose weight.

When we are stuck in a routine where we only eat food once or twice a day, our bodies begin to feel starved and they slow down the metabolism. That makes it far more difficult for us to burn calories and lose fat.

But when we are not following a structured routine that gives our bodies predictable sources of nutrients, they have a tendency to try to hold on to the little nourishment they receive in order to keep us alive ... called the Starvation Mode.

Not only that, but eating regularly is beneficial to the metabolism. It keeps it fired up and ready to burn off any of the excessive fat we may have stored in our bodies. It is very important that we never skip eating breakfast, because breakfast truly is one of the most important meals of the day. Yes ... your Mom was right!

It is what kick starts our metabolism and provides us with the energy that we need to make it through the rest of the day.
