The balance between analyzing and experiencing life


One of the main principles of the Centered Life Model is that, as soon as you have thoroughly set up your objectives in life, you can leave the planning and analytical phase, so to focus your energy on making your life plan real.

This means to move your focus from “the plan” to “what you are experiencing in any next instants of your life”, avoiding rethinking again and again on why you are doing your actions. Indeed, to think continuously about why you are doing what you are doing, distracts you from living here and now with all your senses, so it moves you away from your direct experience of life.

So let’s recap the following two opposite principles:

  • If you simply live in the moment through your senses, without any clear idea of who you are and what you want to achieve in your life, you may end up floating like a leaf in the storm.
  • If you over-analyse each instant of your life, to give it an explanation and a meaning, you will miss the actual experience of living here and now through your senses, becoming a sort of “artificial brain”.

The best approach is in the middle of these two extremes, which represents the point of merge of Eastern and Western philosophies.

Even for me, it would be a paradox to spend most of my time analyzing and describing the Centered Life Model from thousands of different perspectives, producing one post after the other: because I would spend my life analyzing and not living.

So, please take care of learning all the tools you need in order to make the changes you want to see in your life, using this blog and the life-transforming book “Brilliant well-being”; then, be ready to move to the next phase, which is to experience life during any instants, supported by the deep awareness that, through your actions, you are nurturing your being, expressing your potential and becoming your best-self.

  1. Good article, short and to-the-point! It could be so easy to spend life in permanent self-analysis and lose sight of the beauty and joy to be experienced every day! Thanks for the timely reminder, I’ve shared this with my friends on Facebook.

    I resonate with this philosophy however I think it’s a challenge to define one’s objectives in life without being in touch with one’s true self first.

      Thanks for your comment. This is the reason why the model is based on seven phases which repeat circularly, without necessarily a beginning or an end. You start setting your objectives, then you live your life through your senses, then you refine your objectives taking into account your experience and maturity, and on and on. Dimi
