You have planned your life. Everything is under absolute control. The future is decided and your success path has been chalked-out carefully. Back home, you share soulful relationships and are happy about how things are working.
Something erratic occurs. Totally out of the blue; the unexpected; and your life is shredded into tiny bits of chaos. The chaos is ready to shatter you and make you feel like you will never overcome it. Things are going beyond your control and you are absolutely clueless about the next step, praying desperately for everything to fall back in order; just like you had planned.
What is Chaos?
Chaos is the transition from the known to the unknown. It is the destruction of the old for construction of something better, mightier. Chaos is an indication that creation is about to begin. It is a positive sign for change.
A sudden change in life’s plan usually disrupts our mindset. Uncertaintiescompel us to shift our energies. We feel stressed, anxious, tensed and do not know what to do. Eventually, we begin to focus on the problem area and start finding appropriate solution. In many situations we are also required to adjust to the new situation. In both cases, we are shifting our energies and vibration; shifting from an old vibration to a new one. The space in between these two vibrations is unusual and makes us uncomfortable. This space is chaos. It is a state of mind, a fear of the unknown. And it is absolutely okay.
It is a process that occurs every time you have stirred your vibration and energy patterns to reorder something or sail through a challenge or change. Remember, chaos will last only till you have not made a complete shift to the new vibration and made it the new normal. If you linger on and refuse to overcome the uncertainty by staying stuck, chaos will never get over. Thus, keep stirring till you attain the new order and chaos will eventually fade away.
Chaos – The opportune time to grow
Just when you feel that the chaos will wreck you within, take a pause and think – Does life really has a perfect plan? When was the last time you heard a person saying that the whole life worked in sync with his plan? NEVER! Right?
Life is uncertain and chaotic. That is how it is meant to be. And it is right when things do not happen as planned that we realize how resilient we are and grow the most. It is during that phase of utter chaos that we discover our inner strengths and regain our ability to adapt to change. Chaos helps us discover out true potential. Only when you are knee deep in trouble and in a chaotic state,you overcome your deepest fear and bring to surface your biggest power. Also, the moments of confusions that accompany chaos, help you analyze what is more important and what is not, what can be left behind and what do you ache for. This gives you a clear view of your life’s mantra and helps you ideate on your actual needs.
So, stop thinking and over-analyzing your troubles; stop resisting the chaos. Instead, keep moving forward and exploring new possibilities that awaits you at the end of the tunnel. Invest in new relationships, take up a new career, plan a new roadmap to success and believe in it more than ever. Make bold choices, do what you always wanted to but feared the outcome, as things can only improve here on.
Chaos can be best compared to a volcano. The heated lava flowing from the volcano destroys everything along its path only to cool down later to transpire into rocks and fertile land creating space for new animals and scope for fresh vegetation. Similarly, chaos makes way for new chances and bigger changes.
Accept Chaos – Embrace it
We are surrounded by deep uncertainties of life. We don’t know how long will we live, how long will our career last, when will a relationship turn sour, when will our business stop performing, how much will we earn, what will we lose, when, how, where, what….. Nothing is certain.
The only thing that is certain is this moment, now. Then, why not make the most of it? This is the only time that we have control on. Why not perform our best today and live to the fullest now?Why not keep all our worries about the uncertainties aside and give life its best shot? Let us create magical moments today, a time that are ours, a situation that we can currently control. Our actions today will put the following pieces of life in motion. The best way to escape chaos is to accept it. Embrace the chaos and move forward.
Why move ahead of Chaos?
Life is imperfect. The sooner we understand it, easier it will become for us to move ahead of chaos. If we do not and try to fight the chaos, we will stay stuck forever. We must aim for a goal, take charge of our thoughts and actions and move towards a higher purpose in life. Pursuing our passion will stimulate an adrenaline rush; keep us motivated, energetic, happy and alive.
Is chaos important?
Think of it this way – construction cannot happen on an existing structure. The space has to be first cleared to pave way for something better to be created. This means that destruction is an important step before construction. Unless you destroy the old building, one that you now envision cannot be created. Also, it is a known fact that the universe begins to manifest situations in accordance to what you strongly desire.So, if you have x earnings and aspire for 2x, the universe will start to take its own course and prepare you for the next jump. In order to make you capable of 2x earnings and help you gain the required expertise, it will disrupt the existing set-up and make your life chaotic. This is universe’s way to make space for the new creation that will help you achieve your dreams. Though it may appear destructive to you, chaos is the only way you of the universe to bring you head-on amidst various challenges so that you emerge stronger and better prepared for the impending success. When the brain muscle tries to resist the challenges associated with chaos, the synapses are stimulated and new synapses get fired to create new learning and development. This temporary unrest will make you future ready and sharpen your abilities. Unless chaos occurs, the new-set up is impossible. Success is impossible. Happiness is impossible.
