These are not just empty words. I know uncertainty, fear, and worry. I know confusion. If I think that having a direction means I will never be confused, unhappy, or uncertain, I will suffer. If I then look at how happy other people are, and compare my internal to their external, I will suffer. Having a direction in life is having an internal image that you feel matches external reality. In fact, without a direction, life becomes an adventure. But how you think life should be is created within you. It is not an absolute.
Meaning, everyone has their own interpretation. And this interpretation often comes from the outside. You listen to friends and family. You watch movies. You take in the world, and the world molds you. But when I take one step, I see a little bit farther. So movement is the key. I notice what is interesting to me, and I follow that to the best of my ability. Below is a video on not having a direction.
How do you define what having a direction means? Answering these questions will begin to reveal the internal image you hold up as the standard to which life should conform. Today, I live a directionless life. I do my best. I follow my enthusiasm. I see where life takes me. Notice your mind judging. Take care of your practical needs, but allow yourself to play, to explore where your inner being is drawn. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. As you follow your interests, you will meet fear , uncertainty, and doubt.
This is not another achievement that you need to yearn for. In the beginning, your mind will insist that you search for a direction, and you will fall for it. You can live and experience life directly. You begin to take your mind less seriously. You live more in the moment. This enjoyment is not dependent on how external life goes. Instead, it comes from within. Nothing is wrong if you experience confusion. Would you like to learn more about following what resonates?
