Don’t fight the cycles of life-flow with them instead

“Don’t fight the cycles of life-flow with them instead” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.

I barely wrote anything new the last couple of weeks and it has felt amazing. But it wasn’t that I didn’t want to write, it was that I felt it was time to take a break from writing, and it felt good to pay attention to that and give myself a break.

And now as I am back writing again, it wasn’t me that chose to start writing again, it was that I felt deep down within myself that it was time to start writing again.

But when I felt that it was time to take a break, something inside me fought that and still wanted to continue to write. But something inside me also knew that if I forced the writing, I wouldn’t be enjoying myself while doing it; and the enjoyment of what we are doing is always more important than any destination that we may want to get to from what we are doing.

I’ve been fortunate to learn that there are cycles in life and this has freed me from so many worries and struggles. But I’ve also been fortunate to learn that I don’t have to cheat or violate the cycles of life to be successful in life.

I’ve been fortunate to learn that by aligning myself with the cycles of life, I live life in the most natural and enjoyable way. And I’ve also been fortunate to learn that when it is time to rest and take a nap in the afternoon, then it is time to make sure that I close the blinds and curtains so that the room is dark enough for me to get my beauty rest.

Blessings, Babajide

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi.  I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19.  In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search.  I read voraciously.  After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now.  And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.  The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are – and

    OOOOH I looove this. Ive been learning this too; not mastered it by any means but for sure being less hard on myself and trusting my alignment with things. I’m trying to become less hard on myself and more understanding which is very much more self serving than self loathing about what I didnt do.

    Thanks for sharing and I am so glad you are back to writing <3

    Yes, going easy on ourselves in downtimes is a lesson many of us take awhile to master isn’t it, Bobby?

    Truly an applicable theory, but i’ve been trying to complete my masters in finance and been sort of caught there..either i’ve prepared less, lack of concentration, lack of motivation or something the other is been there…when i am at work i’ve a very strong feeling that i should complete my masters and make all the efforts that it takes. But the moment i get back home I post-pone things or have very minimal concentration. How do i deal with this?

    Thank you!

    I think it helps to become mindful of when your work is inspired. Here is an article that explains more on doing the “right thing” at the “right time.” It can be very helpful to apply these techniques to getting work done in any arena.
