Eudaimonia // The Greeks coined this term in effort to enlighten us on the nature of certain states of mind that are conducive to nurturing well-being and a deep sense of serenity and fulfillment—we could also see this as our ability to flourish. The experience that translates everything is within the mind. We know to be true, that when facing the most challenging of situations we are often exposing a very vulnerable part of ourselves. The basic human struggle with fear and vulnerability, our tendencies for attachment, and desire to control our outer world which is limited and often illusory, are what create burdens within us and fades our ability to really flourish and love. Whether it is conscious or not, whatever we do, hope and dream in our lives, is bound to a profound desire to find meaning, well-being, peace of mind and happiness. If we want to reach this state of mind we need to be willing to let go of who we think we should be in order for us to be whom we really are. We need to embrace these moments of struggle, appreciate them and let them help us recognize our fullest potential of what we are capable of doing, of feeling, of how deeply we are by nature, meant to love. When we embark on this realization and learn to detach from what is holding us back, eudaimonia becomes enduring rather than transitory, we become more humble, and we open our eyes, our ears, our minds to all that is around us. By the fundamental fabric of our consciousness and cognitive abilities, we are more than capable of flourishing, of experiencing well-being and of becoming ever more grateful of our capability of recognizing that the sweetest nectar is within.
