An Awakened World

Hyper-consumerism is no longer the only way to live, as millions of people around the world prefer a different life where they buy new experiences instead of products.

Experiences may be better than mindless consumerism, but experiences are still desires, and reality is beyond the pursuit of all kinds of desire.

Every Experience Is Worth Having - Darius Foroux

Michael Singer

“You have to understand that it is your attempt to get special experiences from life that makes you miss the actual experience of life. Life is not something you get; it’s something you experience.”

Stoics practiced ‘The Last Time’ meditation to experience life to the fullest. It is a mindset that makes us enjoy our experiences more.

  • At random times during the day, imagine that the experience you are having is for the last time.
  • If you are having coffee, pretend that it is the last time you will be able to taste coffee. If you are having dinner with your parents, imagine that this is the last time you will ever meet them.
  • Imagining that the experience will never occur again is a way to be more appreciative and to enjoy it at a different level.

The pursuit of change is ingrained in us, as most of us want to change our clothes, car, house etc., just to attain something better. 

We can have an alternative view about our present life, believing that change is optional and we are good and happy with how life is right now. 

It is a good way to live in contentment with things we cannot change.
