Powerful Context for Life

I got some questions from readers about what I mean with 'context' regarding Transformation.

Let me make it simple, it is simple. Because it is really practicable and applicable.

Most people start a relationship or marriage to try to get some satisfaction out of it. In other words, we hope that the marriage will work out so that you and I will be satisfied. This kind of marriage is going to fail, it may last for years or decades, but in the end it’s not going to work. But if you could create a context of satisfaction for your marriage and then not trying to get satisfaction out of it - because you already got it, that’s the context of the marriage - , but what can I contribute to the marriage, then the marriage will work under all circumstances.

There’s not much you can do about the circumstances, your partner is the way he or she is, they can change their haircut or suite, and it’s still them. So there’s no control in the circumstances of your life. But the one thing you have absolute control over is the context of your life. If you create a context of well-being for your life, then the circumstances will reflect that well-being, even the negative circumstances will reflect to that well-being as a part of the well-being.

We are really good in feeling with the concepts of an event. We have a lot of skills in dealing with the process of an event, but we have almost no awareness about the context of an event. You see, it’s not about what you think that will improve the quality of your life, but it’s the space in which you think. It’s about what you could think that will improve the quality of your life.

What everybody thinks: “If I think a little bit different, then my life would be better”. Or, “Thinking positive will improve my life”. Thinking differently is not going to change someone’s life or is going to open up someone’s life. Because there’s no shift in context. You’re still in the same box!

So what really alters your life isn’t starting with thinking, it’s about being. So be happy, be successful, be fulfilled, be joyful, be creative, no matter the circumstances! You are your life!

Go out and play!
