What is sustainability?, I am sure we would all have our own opinions and that is great, everyone needs there own opinions. This is what I got from Wikipedia. “Sustainability is the process of people maintaining change in a balanced environment, in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are all in harmony and enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations”. So now you add mind body and soul to that and it translates to a place or a state where we can exist peacefully maintaining an equilibrium of a solid state of mind body and soul with the pressures of modern society.
So where does that leave us and how do we achieve it. Well unfortunately I believe that is a different answer for everyone, we are all different and all seek different beliefs and dreams that we believe would make us or put us in that sustainable place. For most of us getting away to a retreat or even a holiday for a week will lift us to a place where we believe we operate the best, but how do we maintain that sometimes euphoric state of mind.
As I mentioned it is different for all of us but the process is similar, we have to weigh up our lives current and future and decide what we really want from it. Then decide what we do not want as that is just as important and sometimes the hardest to decide on. What habits can you do without?. Once these have been decided on we have to then go through the process of changing our belief systems removing any negative beliefs and replacing them with positive feelings.
A belief can be well set in your subconscious and could have been a part of your decision making since your early childhood. We cannot change or delete our memories but we can change way we feel about them and reactions we get, making a negative a positive as well as letting you understand and know what it feels like to have a positive memory instead of a negative one.
This is the first real step in finding a sustainable mind body and soul. Are you interested to know what it feels like to have a sustainable mind body and soul?.
