We know the value of rising above something. We love the mountains, we love looking down at the order in things. It's humanly natural to want to see life from a lofty height. But this is not just a mental or physical experience. It's spiritual as well.
When we see order in chaos, we are totally in control. It's about predictability, safety, comfort and control of the future. Order in chaos means, helicopter mindset.
There are many ways of detaching yourself from something, many of which involve some sort of emotional or physical separation. An "I don't care" attitude, or "I'm over it" headspace. But this isn't really the experience of rising above something, it's more akin to an imprisonment of hiding from it.
The helicopter mindset puts you in the driver's seat. It gives you complete control of a situation both personal and professional. It certainly changed my life, being able to see the order in the chaos made living in the real world a totally conscious experience.
I used to meditate on a cushion, but now, life is my meditation. Now I see order in life, rather than have to escape it to an old, somewhat outdated Eastern practice. Try it. I think you'll find, like me, that it can make the process of living in the moment a beautiful one. Totally inspired and, it can make your moods much smoother, given that you're more likely to act rather than react.
