All human beings are spiritual creatures who are living on this earth to fulfill a higher purpose. We are all here to make mistakes from the day we are born until the day we die. We are here to learn lessons that are necessary for our own personal/spiritual growth. There is not one human being living on this planet that is 'more important than' anyone else. I don't care who you are, how many college degrees you have, how religious you are, how professional you are, or how many problems you have in your life. This message is for ALL OF US humans living on planet earth...
We all have a past that has many doors we would rather not open. None of us want any of our skeleton's throwing a surprise party in front of anyone. We fear that if we expose our vulnerabilities, we will be rejected by those we care about. We experience fear of rejection because we WANT these people in our life. They hold a special place in our heart, and the loss of these relationships would be devastating to us, personally. We DON'T WANT to experience emotional pain, or any of the negative emotions that come along with it.
All humans are living on free will. That means, we all have the freedom to make our own choices (good or bad). We CHOOSE to discuss things about our "self" that we perceive as positive, and we CHOOSE to sugar coat our authentic spirit. We CHOOSE to express our strengths, not our weaknesses. Whether we want to admit it or not, most of us do care what others think, and we all want the same thing. To be accepted for who we truly are...
Listen to Understand
We all WANT to be heard. We all WANT to express our thoughts and our feelings. Lack of understanding is the primary cause of rejection. People don't want to accept things they cannot understand, and the ego can often take over the conversation resulting in a verbal battle of belief imbalances. The battlefield is quite bloody, and it's always a lose/lose situation. Instead of opening our mind to new possibilities, we are closing doors and limiting our own beliefs. Life is full of opportunities that we miss out on when our ego is in control. We learn by listening, questioning, and observing. Speaking is how we 'teach'. We CHOOSE whether or not we WANT to learn new things.
We become wise by listening to people. If we could only mute the trigger emotions that arise when sensitive topics are discussed, and if we could only tolerate listening to words we would normally tune out as "nonsense". If we focused on visualizing the individual's situation, and placing ourselves in their shoes - we just might begin to understand WHY the situation IS the way it IS. And THAT is the moment we can begin to find acceptance for what IS and what shall BE. Empathy before ego.
Life has its ups and downs. It doesn't matter where you came from, you can always hit rock bottom. Remember, this is God's plan. God doesn't care about your fancy house and your fabulous car. God doesn't care what your hair looks like, what kind of clothes you are wearing, or if your nails are done. If God sees that your actions do not align with your intentions, he can take everything from you before you even realize what happened. Life is not about 'things'. Life is about 'lives'. How are you serving your life, and the lives of those around you?
Hit the Reset Button
You have the power to hit the reset button on your life anytime you desire. You have the power to change your thoughts, your attitude, your perspective, and your life. Everything happens for a reason, and there is a reason why this article has landed on your lap today. This is your opportunity to make a difference in the world we all live in. If we are going to pursue happiness, we need to start looking within ourselves and stop looking for OUR happiness in other people or 'cause(s)'. When we are truly happy with our "self", we focus on pursuing things in life that we WANT. When we are truly happy with our "self", we spread LOVE, not hate. When we are truly happy with our "self", we don't WANT to be the cause of manifesting toxic energy. One action, one comment, is all it takes to complete the circle of cause and effect. Are you satisfied with your results? Be honest with yourself, no one is judging you.
Forgiveness and Gratitude
We all make mistakes, again, that is why we are living on this earth. We must forgive our "self" for our own mistakes. We must know that we did the best we could with what we had to work with in that moment, and identify the valuable lessons we learned from these errors. All our mistakes have made us better people than we were yesterday. Forgiveness is the process of releasing blame, and gratitude is the quality of being thankful. Could you imagine what this world would be like if we all spent as much time focusing on reasons to be grateful for one another rather than finding reasons to hate each other?
IT ALL BEGINS WITHIN YOU. We must focus on healing (internally), not bleeding (externally).
