IS THIS HOW YOU FEEL?
You're out in the world.
You're out in the world, living your life. You're there, walking around, reading, looking at the sky and wondering if you should go out. You've felt better, but then you probably also felt much worse. You're not doing so bad, it's just that there's always something rumbling like thunder on the horizon.
Are you lost?
There is an emptiness, a hollow feeling. You can think it is you, or let it be whatever it is, let it be the way you feel. But then, what is 'the way you feel'? Who is the 'you' that feels something, or observes the person feeling? There is someone living inside the body that is your body; and because you are your body, therefore you're a body that generates feelings and thoughts, but is that really 'you'? Anyone can get lost in the business of living as though we're all merely fragments of an 'I' floating through an unknowable Universe of 'you'. We are a mystery unto ourselves. What is there of substance to hold on to?
When you think of yourself as a single individual amongst strangers, even the sunniest places are forever cold and lonely, so you shouldn't let yourself be numbed by these beliefs of a man-made world. We feel welcomed into the world only through connection. A connection to the reality of the Gods. Inside of you, you carry a fragment of the Divine - now is the time to realise this. We can connect to the Mystery of the Gods. It is through the Gods that we are connected to the inner workings of the life that surrounds us.
You got to have faith.
If you feel above you there is nothing but an empty sky and below your feet there is only the hungry earth, then what are you?
Now that the future we've been promised doesn't seem so attractive anymore, what will happen to us? If all you believe in is work and capital, it’s hard to go through the days. If you can’t believe in anything, you are lost.
You are a messenger to the Gods. Your actions are messages. What you think, changes how you act. The Faith of Eleima shows you how to communicate with the Gods. This will make your life better - not tomorrow or next week, but right now.
You need to have Faith.
The world of people is a hungry world. Here today, gone tomorrow.
The world where the Gods live is eternal, but this world is a mystery to us.
We need to connect to this world of mystery. Through this connection we find our destiny.
We live in anxious times. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy $1tn a year, with a 50% increase in the number of people with depression or anxiety between 1990 and 2013. In the US, general anxiety disorder affects 6.8 million adults and sales of books on anxiety are up 25% year on year at Barnes & Noble.
Also, there are good reasons to feel depressed. Our planet is in tatters, and as a species we need to change our behaviour. Read this article on plummeting insect numbers - then think of what needs to be done, what you can do; and go out and do it.
However, anxiety and fear are not inevitable companions to life. See how you may change your life for the better through the Faith of Eleima.
