9 to 5:
I am working girl, who is catering studies and job, simultaneously, and my life goes around 9 to 5. All my planning, attention, focus, time management revolves around the period from 9am to 5:30pm, because, this is the time I take off from office. Nonetheless, this “off” is only apparent in nature because, often I need to bring work at home in case of task in completion or low productivity. Most of the days, I wake up by five to fulfill those household tasks which I couldn’t do previous day, due to extensive load of tiredness.
Due to this tough schedule and consuming routine, I started repelling people who love me most by rude attitude. I reply them harshly or ignore them, just because I constantly go through with ZOMBIE like feeing due to physical and mental exhaustion. You must have seen a scene in certain movies, in which a character is sitting in middle of road, where vehicles, people, and carts pass him by, but he just stays there motionless and silent regardless of surrounding environment.
Now, I began to feel like such a character in which my family, friends, studies, food, workout, and every other thing is passing me by and I am sitting there in the middle of road motionless, thoughtless, and feeling-less. Due to my so-called 9-to-5 job, I lost ME in all this circumvention, which I used to be few months ago. I MISS myself dearly and passionately, I lost my peace of mind and mostly get engaged in MIND and AGFLAP. I am losing concentration in prayers, I haven’t done proper meditation since months, my physical workout is in quite disastrous condition, I am not able to recite certain Ayah’s and Durud Sharif, which I used to before getting EMPLOYED.
In spite of all the efforts, I am not able to justify with my personal studies because, every time the Jinni of low productivity at work haunts me down.
But why am I telling you all this?
What have you to do with my personal routine?
An average human INTENDS to get involved in such hectic routine because, it is his BELIEF that if he will not work in such manner, he would be unable to survive. This BELIEF becomes fuel of his life and drives him throughout life. He not only nurtures it but also adore it passionately. Consequently, UNIVERSE respond accordingly and give him/her 9-to-5 job, which earned him the living but cost him his BEING. In order to live outstanding life, it is not necessary to bound oneself into such job pattern. There are certain people in the world, who disengaged themselves from this notion and experienced an outstanding rewards of UNIVERSE.
The first example is of Bill Gates. He is the person, who challenged the societal BELIEF that education can only acquire in an institute. And I don’t to illustrate his achievement. The second example of Steve Job, his life was an open diary to everyone that he allowed himself to synchronize with the UNIVERSE and enhanced his creativity. These people shows that all you have to do is to have courage and positive BELIEF about yourself that “Yes, I CAN do it”.
After that you will not need to earn through 9-to-5 job pattern. Once, someone advised me not to BOUND myself in 9-to-5 pattern, rather open myself to infinite Universe of opportunities. Nonetheless, as a part of this society, I ignored this SUGGESTION and compelled to pursue my BELIEF about the benefits of 9-to-5.
Finally, I got the job but lost ME.
This universe is infinite in nature and similarly, it carries the infinite opportunities of livelihood. The pattern of 9-to-5 is considerably new and western origination and we follow it blindly. One of the most significant negative outcomes of this job pattern is that we interact with NON- AWARE people who destroys our personal experience, which we are constantly acquiring on this earth as an ALIEN. This bad experience pushes us into AGFLAP, activates the software of MIND and we fall into alpha-state of mind. This alpha-state not only keeps human in AGFLAP but also cancels the arrival of new opportunities and benefits brought by UNIVERSE itself to us.
I am not intended to say that those who are working in 9-to-5 pattern leave their jobs, nor will I. However, the point to understand is that livelihood is NOT bound to this pattern. As a human, we need to open-up ourselves, check our beliefs, run filter on them and adopt RICH Attitude, then Universe automatically rewards in millions and billions of dollars. The doors and windows start opening automatically and human begin to have REAL EXPERIENCE of being on earth.
