Do you need to create a new “context” in your life?
Or do you need more content, to finally experience the life you want?
Studying “context” in US children
Psychology Today magazine did a study of kids from different parts of the country whose “Contexts” for their lives were very different.
They blindfolded them and put them in a classroom. The test was to watch their reaction to a car backfiring from a busted muffler in the parking lot below.
Children from industrial towns simply flinched, because they were used to hearing those kinds of sounds. For those who came from bustling urban settings, they flinched and quickly turned in the direction of the sound. However, kids from high crime, gang infested neighborhoods with nightly drive by shootings pulled off the blindfold and dove to the floor looking for cover.
Do you see how they processed the same content completely differently based on their context?
Switch Your Context To Transform Your Life
If you are tired of waiting for the life you have always wanted to show up, NOW is the time to take action.
To change your life into the one you always wanted, you don’t need more content like knowledge, experience, or details. You need to focus on the context of your life.
Context is the “lens” through which you perceive, judge, and react to your life. It’s all your paradigms, meanings, and interpretations through which you see the content of your life. You don’t create a new mind, a new self, a new life, or a new reality by focusing on the content of your life.
Imagine how your entire life would be transformed by simply switching your context from always trying to get satisfied and have satisfaction to one of “being satisfied”. If you took a stand for that as a possibility, everything would shift! That’s how powerful the contexts are of our life.
When we stop looking “out there” and start looking at how we’re being “in here” as the determining factor, then everything changes.
In his recent book, “The Most Important Thing…Discovering Truth at the Heart of Life”, Adyashanti describes context as the space, consciousness, or awareness in which thoughts and feelings arise. The context is not itself a thought or a feeling.
When you create a clear context in which your life appears:
- You can experience ways of being that get you where you want to go.
- You can make decisions that support the life you want to see.
- You develop feelings that build you up rather than sabotage you.
- You create thoughts that drive you forward, and internalize words that manifest what you’re standing for based on the future you’re creating today.
You have the power to invent a new context from which to live, giving you the ability to have the life you want!
