I ask these questions because of limitations people place on themselves. Limitations that
Maybe this is my answer to the above questions. So a new question comes to the surface. Do people lack the courage, discipline and faith to make changes and face the paralyzing fears that have prevented them from living a life that is true to their core? If so, how do we get these key ingredients? I can tell you it is not from external elements. Although having someone in your corner who believes in you is most helpful. It takes real honesty with your inner core you and not the superficial honesty. You know what I mean, not the honesty that glazes over the truth and partially blames others or the circumstances. Take a good hard look at everything that has brought you to the point of auto pilot. Take a hard look at the environment surrounding you currently, the shame you may feel, the fear of others finding out your skeletons, etc. This process takes time, patience and most importantly practice. You have developed your self defense mechanisms and way of operating for how many years now? You have judged yourself and others for how long?
Personally, I had had enough. I was a prisoner of my fears and limiting beliefs. This post comes from my living on the other side. I know where I came from and what I went through to break free. I continue to practice living and believing in my life's purpose according to my inner core. It is so much easier than how I used to live. Please know, on the outside looking in, my life appeared to be perfect. All of my physical and materialistic needs were met. I was provided opportunities to have a "good life." I had everything and anything I could possibly imagine available to me. Access to great schools and affluent families and activities were abundant. So what was the problem? I was taught not to trust in my own instincts, how to give someone else authority over my life, resulting in a feeling of unworthiness. This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg and something for another post. Suffice it to say that I reconnected with who I am which is very similar to who you are I bet. I am going out on a limb here, but I believe we all want acceptance, love, respect, to live a happy, healthy and uncomplicated lives. I believe we not only want these things, but that we are born with the divine right to have them. Our human traits, such as, greed, fear, desire for control and power have taken us so far off course. We have lost our way so deeply. It is time to get back to basics. It is time to realign ourselves with our inner core. It is time to be free of the old way of doing things. So where do we begin?
- How do I know that?
- Is this true?
