... And Chances Are You Are Experiencing It!
It's very easy to define pollution as something that affects the air, the water, and the soil.
When we look at polluted soil, it's very easy to determine where the pollution begins and where it ends. Usually, you look for discoloration, of foul smell, or any other kind of indication that you can readily pick up with your five senses.
We normally view pollution as something that we can see, hear, touch, taste, smell, and otherwise perceive. But as practical as this guideline may be in determining pollution, we really can't apply it to where it matters most. You see, physical pollution, caused by chemicals or whatnot, is actually very easy to avoid. You can see it a mile away. You can definitely smell the scent. You can hear it, in the case of noise pollution. You can touch it.
In other words, you can perceive it. Since you can perceive it, you can walk around it or avoid it altogether. In many cases, these physical pollutants and toxic elements are brought towards our attention by warning signs. There are biohazard signs, there are radioactive signs, there are danger signs. There are so many signs.
The problem is your biggest worry shouldn't be physical pollution. They're part of the big picture, don't get me wrong, but they're just a small part, and in fact, if you are paying attention and you have your wits about you, you can easily avoid them. You can do things in such a way that they never become problem.
The bigger issue that you need to keep your eye on is life pollution. These are the things that poison your life and they take the form of thoughts. When somebody says something to you, and it really sticks with you, the more you think about it, the more you blow it out of proportion. Start reading your worst fears and insecurities into the membrane, and guess what happens? It gets worse and worse, and whatever conclusions you may have make you feel miserable. It upsets you and it prevents you from living the kind of life you should otherwise be living.
You start thinking of yourself as some sort of victim. You start thinking that there is this unresolved issue from the past and you feel that you have to keep thinking about it for you to finally make it go away. Well, it's not going to go away because you are polluting your mind over and over again. And the more you do this, the more spiritually polluted and toxic you become.
One things leads to the other, and it's no surprise that a lot people are feeling stuck, frustrated and desperate in their lives. You don't have to be one of those people. You can live your life in such a way that you can function at your fullest potential.
Seriously, this is possible, but just because a lot of people are running around like chickens with their heads cut off, doesn't mean that you have to join them. Just how effective do you think they are? Do you think they've got their acts together? Do you think that they are making things happen? Well, think again.
When you allow life pollution to overtake your life, you basically give up on your life. That's the bottom line. You have to understand you are the most powerful person in your life because you could always choose what to remember, what to focus on, and how to interpret the world around you.
All of these are choices; they don't flow automatically. You don't behave and think this way right out of the gate. Somebody has must have taught you, and you must have willingly taken their lessons. That's how it works, and it all comes down to choices. The good news is just because there is life pollution, and just because it truly is a real thing, you can choose to do something about it.
You can choose to first become aware of just how polluted your life has become. And once you are able to do that, you can then start turning your back o
