Are you following your path… or are you faking?

2 years, 5 months ago

How do you know you are following your path? How do you know you’re just convincing yourself you are following your path?

I am pro- non resistance and pro- being happy and no complaing over things that can’t be changed… Can that be a way of faking? How do you know the difference between being happy and faking happy?

If a friend doesn’t help you when needed, but you don’t get mad because you understeand them… Are you a real friend yourself? Is your friend a real friend? Should you dump them?

If you are living the life you want (you like your job, your lover, your city… and feel great on your own skin), does it make sense to want something else… or that just means you’re not really where you want to be?

Have you ever asked yourself these questions? How do you answer them?

Life has absolutely no purpose, there is no path, there is nothing but nowhere. Why are you asking questions with absolutely obvious answers?

@shaidita, funny, a few nights ago, i found myself asking myself these same questions and i guess the truth is, we dont know, and we will never know. i suppose we just have to be in pure acceptance of all things and trust that with intention, the universe, or god, will bring us what we desire and need when the time is right and should enjoy the moment and the path to getting there.

@kellah, @seeker, Thank you both for sharing your opinions!

Everytime you are managing/controlling your emotions and actually CHANGING them, there is a chance that you might be adding frustration to your subconscious. I want to avoid that!

We create our own path, so the question becomes twofold. Am I doing what I feel I should be doing and are my feelings independent of cultural biases.
In a broad sense I think we are all out of touch unless we are actively promoting sustainability, because otherwise we are the agents of our own destruction and that can’t be the right path.
