When I began my journey on awakening to the truth of this Universe, I can say that expanding was not always what it was cracked up to be. I read lots of self-help and spiritual and even new age books. Yet, when I began, it only felt like my life was falling apart even more than what I had believed it to be.
I am a person who is in great joy when new understandings of myself surface. I love it when I meet new people of the same mind-set. When I have an opportunity to share the internal joy of growing and sharing, sometimes, as a dear friend has reminded me, those who I am playing with may not have the ability to tell me the truth of how my exuberance is putting pressures on them that they cannot stand up to.
I have had the most profound experience of understanding who I am. I have opened up a door that I will never walk back through in whom and what I am. I, like everyone, have a voice that had such a hold on me. Mine was one that as I walked into my life of teacher,actually held such a tight hold on me I almost made the choice not go any farther.
Okay, I have been working with my class and we have been discovering how to stand in the selflessness of self. In this discovery we have seen how when we think we are doing something for someone else, we should be getting a good feel and outcome. Yet this does not seem to be the case so much of the time. Why is that do you think?
I have had a very interesting conversation with a woman today. She had commented that she had consciously put up walls, so that someone would come and tear it down. I commented back that the power actually is in our own hands. We should not expect someone else to come and prove that they are listening to us. Her answer was she was listening but…….
I think another of the hard things about communication is when one person is communicating and the other person is slinging stuff to get out of talking altogether. This is where choices on our part have to come in. We must start asking ourselves, how important is this person in our lives?
I think the hardest thing about having true communications with others is not getting lost in questioning what are facts and what is fiction with our stories and other peoples stories.
Have you ever been trying to express your feelings with someone, and they keep trying to throw other issues into the mix? Do you maintain the expressing of your feelings? Or do you get caught up in the side issues?
If we could see this world in a different light would we be willing to live differently? When we are caught in our everyday lives, do we believe that we can start over and change everything about ourselves? Well that is the very thing that I have spent the last 25 years working on with my clients.
