Live untamed and unafraid is a recipe for really living life to the full – for really feeling alive day in, day out. It’s about being true to yourself, pushing through your doubts and fears to go after what you really want in life, and living an inspired life that not only has you feel truly alive, but also inspires those around you to really ‘live life’.
But then if it one of the way to living a fulfilling life, then why don’t we follow it? This is because of our untamed mind and then when we fuel it by talking about it. Of the human urges, a great one is the urge to talk. It is believed that all living beings communicate in their respective languages. Humans, however, due to developed intellect and conditioned self, have developed the system of holding elaborate conversations. If you look around you will find most people talking most of the time. A lot that is being talked is not heard. The urge to talk arises directly from the restless mind. Whether such talk is useful or useless, positive or negative is subject to individual interpretation.
You can tame your mind by exerting some mental discipline. Make it a daily morning routine to be still by yourself for a few minutes and experience who you are. Raise your awareness to your inner process and feel your feelings – it won’t KILL you. In fact you will be surprised to notice that the emotional pain is not “unbearable”, unless you try to make it go away easily. Take some time to explore the thoughts behind your feelings.
