4 Ways to Reveal the Secret of Life

What’s the secret of life? What’s its purpose? Who are we? Where are we heading?

Those questions have different answers for everyone, different explanation and factors that influence it. We can all find them and reveal the meaning of everything. I use the word ‘find’ simply because all we need to know is inside us, we just have to refind it and learn how to use the information.

We are magical beings and have all the power inside us – power to change, understand, achieve, help and live. It’s not hidden, it has just been there all the time – in our mind, in our consciousness and in every single cell in our body- and waits for us to get to that moment of our development when we will be ready to accept the knowledge, to live with it and to spread it.

This may not be an easy task because it requires a lot of contemplating, believing, accepting, understanding, thinking and doing. But there are a few things we can do to quicken the process of self-improvement and self-understanding, the result of which is learning everything about our life.

Meditation

“Meditation will bring you sensitivity, a great sense of belonging to the world. It is our world – the stars are ours, and we are not foreigners here. We are part of it, we are the heart of it.”
Osho

Meditation itself is just a practice, a technique, a method. But what it does to our mind if done right is tremendous. It helps us discover new worlds, understand new feelings, see new things. It is a way to close our consciousness to some things and open it to others.

All you need is solitude – a quiet place, and a desire to get to know yourself better. Try to eliminate all the negative thoughts and if you can just stop thinking at all for some time. This may sound difficult and ridiculous, but I assure you it’s not.

To stop thinking is hard in nowadays daily round when so many things are happening, so many tasks, ideas and thoughts just pop up in our head all the time. We have lost the ability to just turn off the button and relax. Meditation is a way to achieve that.

So clear your mind and just contemplate. You may be lying in your bed, sitting, or be close to nature. Wherever you are, try to see – even if your eyes are closed. Try to hear the silence, to feel yourself breathing, to relax, accept one thought at a time and try to understand it.

Do this every morning and evening for as long as you can and soon you will feel the change. It can’t be described exactly but by meditating you will find answers and often questions you haven’t asked before.

New experiences

“Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Try new things, go to new places, meet new people. Each of these things can spontaneously give you an answer to your questions, ideas, new feelings and emotions.

Conquer your fears by doing what you are scared of and challenge yourself constantly in order to reach another level of living – where you will be connected to life and will really experience moments, enjoy every day and feel like you belong here.

Have a go at every sport and game, read all kinds of literature, speak with people from different cultures and eventually you will find that one thing that will give meaning to everything else. Just never stop searching, experiencing and discovering.

Love

“Love is the strongest force the world possesses and yet it is the humblest imaginable.”
Mahatma Gandhi

True love is another way to find what you are looking for. You may feel love towards your family, friends, pet, yourself, nature or anything. It doesn’t matter as long as it’s in its pure form, where you would do everything to help the one you love.

This feeling opens new doors for you, your mind experiences other emotions as well and gets you closer to revealing the secret of life.

Writing

“I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering.”
Robert Frost

Some may think it is irrelevant to compare writing to love, but I would say that he hasn’t really experienced this process. They are different ways of finding similar things.

By writing we speak on behalf of our imagination, we travel the world through words. For some it’s therapy, for others – something that keeps them alive, but however you feel about writing, you still haven’t revealed all it has to give us.

Give it a chance. Sit down in a quiet place and try to write – write down everything you think, the things that happened to you lately, your dreams and plans, or just write without purpose. Eventually you will realize that your words are starting to make sense and you may even feel the effect of meditation – understanding new things about yourself and your life.

These are just 4 ways that can help you connect with your inner self and reveal the secret of life. It’s not an exact science and there aren’t any rules. Try them and if they are not your ways continue exploring other methods. If you look inside yourself, one way or another you will find something. And it will be astonishing…

What are your ways of finding the secret of life and answers to all the existential questions?

  1. Thank you so much, this really helped me, I’m into writing a lot, it’s kinda hard though, sometimes I have a lot of thoughts stuck in my head it’s hard for me to focus.
    I really enjoyed the quotes, made me feel happy and calm. My week didn’t start quite well that I just wanted to go away and forget the rest. I’m gonna try to meditate, I just need to find a quiet place, wish me luck and motivation 🙂

    1. Thank you for commenting!
      You don’t need luck. I’m sure you can do it! Just try to keep in mind what you really want and be willing to work for it.
      It’s awful when our week starts bad… but we can compensate that by being peaceful and happy no matter how bad the situation is – just remember all the things you have, all the people in you live, your good qualities, etc. Focus on the positive side of things and eventually everything will be in balance.
      As for the writing, it’s great that you’re into it. It’s a wonderful hobby. Just write down all of those thoughts in your head and you will feel relaxed.
      Have a great day

  2. While I appreciate the sharing of others’ wisdom, what I like most about your posts is that they are succinct and poignant. I’m a fan of crisp and clear and you do both well.

    1. Thank you so much! It means a lot to me that you find my writing style interesting. Compliments like this give me confidence to continue my blog adventure.

  3. It is so cool to come across like minded positive people. We seem to have a lot of common views and you must love quotes as much as I do. Meditation is something on my plate to try for sure. My greatest Ideas come when i first awake in the morning, When I am in my car, or when I listen to any variety of wordless music. Writing my thoughts down is something of a challenge sometimes. They seem so deeply profound that I just don’t know how to put them down to words. Awesome blog, have a great day.

    1. Thank you for commenting and sharing your opinion.
      It’s the same with my ideas. Even if I think too much and try to concentrate on something, the idea pops up later in my head when I least expect it.

  4. Thank you for your honest words. You make good points, especially with regard to where we as human beings have to go for our answers. Inside. The silence you suggest is also very good advice as that silent time is where we do go inside. Thank you.

  5. Believing miracles ain’t a funny thing for living things on earth I guess! But what actually does matter for the better output of such miracles is a sort of self belief and faith in ourselves. This is where most among us lacks confidence. All the above mentioned factors will definitely do initiate confidence level in us and thanks a ton for sharing the real meanings of these magical words to us. 🙂
    Gratitude can be also included in it, right? 🙂

    Rahul

    1. Of course! I’m living by being grateful every day and it is one of the most important things for every person to realize.
      Actually a lot more can be added here simply because everyone has a different way of understanding himself, others and the world. I just wrote down a few of them that have been tested through time. And eventually it all comes down to believing in yourself, being aware of your purpose, power and abilities, expressing love, gratitude…

      1. Yeah!! It’s me who have to decide about the things in which I’m interested in and work it out in a most vivid manner. I’m so much impressed to read your insights, Gal.
        PS: Don’t feel or think that Rahul Ashok has been flattering you!! I’m simply telling what I feel about ya within the limits via this blog. 🙂 🙂

        Rahul

        1. I know that. And I enjoy exchanging ideas and advice with another creative person, interested in writing, improving himself and who enjoys my posts and writes adequate comments that make me think. 😀

  6. Reblogged this on oldienewbies and commented:
    It’s great to know that younger generations know where to find the Secret of Life. Live for today. Think about the future. The past is gone.

  7. All these examples are possible for everyone – thanks for the encouragement. Meditation is on my mind right now. I’ve got out of the routine or habit but am seeing reminders everyday. Thanks again.
