Lack of Enthusiasm

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

How is one to deal with lack of enthusiasm? When the point is not that "I do not know what I want", but that "I do not want anything, I do not find joy in activities, dreams, projects".


Response:

Lack of enthusiasm and interest in life, indicates that something is amiss. There is joy, love, beauty, power and knowledge in every moment of life experience. Young children naturally live life with interest and enthusiasm. When boredom, joylessness and jadedness begin to overtake life it usually means that it is masking a history of disappointment, rejection and fear. The mask of disinterest is there to protect one from risking further disappointment and pain. The idea is that if you to want anything and don’t try for anything, then you can’t fail or be hurt. Of course it doesn’t work that way in practice. In actually, such people only burying their pain, not healing it, so they are living a life of inner pain while feigning disinterest. My advice is to ask yourself what you are afraid of. Then ask what would be fun and interesting for you to do if you weren’t afraid of anything bad happening. From that you will discover what your joy in life is as well as what fears you need to release.

Love,
Deepak

  • well, helping ppl heal. part time. and then drawing and painting a lot- knitting is really relaxing for me and lately i have fun learning different techniques on you tube : ) I love sleeping a lot- in fact i must sleep a lot to feel well. i read that if a person concentrates on getting better at a talent rather than focusing on themselves so much that helps...whatever that research means... maybe it`s one of those "fake it till you make it" things

As well, what may be taken for granted is the essential requirement of some fundamental basics like eating a healthy well rounded diet created with nutrition dense foods that you like, getting your blood flowing with exercise even if you think you don't like it, awakening your senses with positive stimulants like scents, music, touch therapy and visuals, getting enough sleep and most certainly by turning attention to the essence of spiritual consciousness beginning with gratitude. These things are sure to enliven every soul that seeks fulfillment in their lives.

  • I have been Living in my parents basement for the last 4 years, trying to get out. I`m working for a trimmer/carpenter but very unsatisfied with it, not making enough money to move out and pay the child support payments. My self reflection is not balanced with my physical reality(body) I am aware of this but cannot step out of this shell I have created. Tolle was very helpful to me when my marriage ended 9 years ago. I am able to meditate with ease, can even make my toes and fingers tingle thanks to Tolle. I am a business illiterate, and need assistance. I have 3 boys that I need to take care of, they are in need of opportunities in life that I have been neglecting.

  • Mr Chopra, I have a list of things I would like to do and share, but I become discouraged when I try to reach out and my hand is being pushed aside. I trust that the reason I have been drawn to you and all the extremely talented and brilliant people is because this is where I belong. The first step is a difficult one, I think I need a hand rail.

    Pete // 2013-03-25 12:32:37 // //

  • Apathy and indifference = low on the emotional tone scale and in the space of "no place". What has dampened the spirit? What has stolen the pure joy of living? Can a person be helped to let that go? Can a person move past the chains, thoughts and constraints that others have placed on them?

  • Deborah Riley for you Still I Rise You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? 'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I'll rise. Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops. Weakened by my soulful cries. Does my haughtiness offend you? Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines Diggin' in my own back yard. You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise. Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I've got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs? Out of the huts of history's shame I rise Up from a past that's rooted in pain I rise I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise. Maya Angelou

  • How many times does life have to beat the crap out of us before we learn to give up? I'd much rather die than go through the pain I have already experienced again and again and again. My path shows me only misery. Way beyond fear, I am exhausted, burned out, empty, alone, broke, unhealthy, miserable. Not always this way, but now I am too old to get up again and face the beatings that get worse with every tick tick tick of the clock.

  • Not that easy. Sometimes we are blocked at every turn by people who are dark in thought and heart. It is usually about being spurned, jealousy, loss or revenge. Notice these people are usually ugly, inside and out. They eat junk, treat other people like junk all the time and would never do anything for anybody else unless they gain something in return.

  • Beautiful feedback! I've been there, and it's numbing to suppress, hide who you are, and/or not know who you are. I learned life is too short and wonderful to play somebody else's song!

  • Biochemical imbalance is a curse. Waking up with the world heavy on your shoulders for absolutely no reason seen it's no different from yesterday. Your wisdom reminds those who suffer from depression that it's just that a chemical imbalance. Thank you

    Maria Pagan // 2013-03-19 23:18:04 // //
