Playing tug of war, this constant struggle isn’t what’s meant for each and every one of us. It’s really not. Somehow, somewhere possibly through many sources maybe 20 years ago or 20 minutes ago you have interpreted opinions about anything and everything. Molding those opinions into your now belief system. This belief system, in terms of how you should act, what you should say, how you should look, wear, live, you name it. We are bombarded daily with thousands and thousands of things to coerce us into a belief system. But what you’re desiring, is it truly yours? Does it come from he deepest part of you that is untouched by any circumstance or condition? Does it feel good when you think, say, or do? Is it coming from the your heart or coming from your mind? Not sure, well then that’s where you must begin. Seeking clarity within yourself. Because after all no one knows what you feel, desire, and think better than yourself. The only person that can bring forth that purity is within you. No matter how hard you try to distract yourself with others, material things, and such, the question ALWAYS is answered within.
Tapping into that is first a matter of your redesigning your unique beliefs, do you know yourself? You are the author, the creator, you’re the star of your own show. No one to blame, so go inside and listen to the whispering, your intuition. Meditation is the way to silence all of the noise and to hear the soft, kind, gentle whispering.
After, discovering your desire(s) with clarity, fully knowing that what you desire is from a “feel good” place, Without any doubt then comes the courage to align with the desire. When I mention courage, it truly is a courageous movement. Because rules, laws, expectations, etc. have been created by others, this intuition, is now your truth. I’m not saying to go out and break the law or become an anarchist necessarily but find a way to make it work for you. It takes a lot of courage when listening and following your internal GPS(aka intuition, gut feeling, instinct) as it may cause great shifts and possibly judgement from others.
So take a very simple example; when you decide to go to the grocery store, there are many paths to choose from you can go the long way, the short way, the one with less or more traffic, you may want to drive or bike, choose a different time of day, etc. but you know you are going to the grocery store that’s the same it’s how you choose to get there is up to you. Take this simple scenario and now apply it to different areas of your life; self image, self expectations, and the expectations you have of others. No need to judge the past(because that doesn’t feel good, right?). Remember we are searching for “feel good” moments. Release this game of tug of war, no more struggling.
Right now you can pave your own way, unique to you, honored by you, and that feels good to you. Can you imagine if we all did this? So much less resistance, more peace, more compassion, trust, better health, more energy, more fun in life overall. Wow, that’s tempting.
