We are on this journey we call life and it's not always roses, there are thorns thrown into the mix. How do we navigate it all. There are so many unknowns. We have never been here before. The whole world seems to be a mess.
I believe we're in a time where everything has to change and it starts with each one of us. We are responsible for our lives the way they are. The thing is though, we really don't know what to do or how to do it.
We used to go shopping, go for coffee with a friend, make a phone call, work - anything to keep busy and distract ourselves from taking a look at our self and our life. We blamed others for how we were feeling, pointed the finger at those who didn't think or act like us. If someone disagreed with our point of view we got into arguments with them trying to prove we were right.
We have a need to be loved, accepted and valued and if those needs aren't met we unconsciously lash out and point the finger.
What if we stopped that! You are not responsible for anyone but yourself. How you feel, the things you like and don't, the perception you have for something is all relative to your experience. They are your truth in the moment. If you aren't happy and don't have peace within you stop blaming others. Instead, go within yourself and start asking those hard questions. Question the beliefs you have. Are they yours or did you pick them up from parents, friends, or the news. Having a reaction of any kind should be an indicator to you that something needs to be looked at and healed within you. If, on the other hand, you can respond to something or someone you know you're in a good place. Reaction comes from hurt and mistrust. Responding comes from knowing who you are.
Find out who you are inside. You are mind, body and spirit and you cannot separate one from the other. If you try to figure it all out in your head you're negating most of who you are. Your mind is such a small part of you and it only wants to protect you, to keep you where you are, because that's what it knows. Bring your awareness to your body and soul. Feel your body, your breath and allow your soul to speak to you.
When you do things begin to change from the inside which is where transformation happens. You may not even know what's happening but you will be able to trust the journey.
