When one walks forward and it feels as though the path you have chosen is lonely, how do you know you are walking for your own good? Well, that is how. I know, that sounds silly. Yet think about it. You have created a mathematical equation; in that equation you have mapped out certain experiences so your soul could grow in it’s understandings. You did not map it out for your friends and family. See where this is going?
How do you find yourself if you only know how to stand in your intellect and think you are standing in your feelings? This is a question that is not asked of me but I see is clearly the case as I work with a person.
One of the hardest parts of learning to have the truth that ‘Self is Necessary’ work in your life, is knowing how to let go of the guilt and obligation that the whole world wants to put at your doorstep. At least that is how it is perceived by each of us in the very beginning. That does change once you take a look at why your internal emotions allow that to be your story.
When one chooses to truly walk the path of Universal truth one would assume there are many things in our physical life that we would have to give up. That was my understanding as a small girl going to parochial school learning about all the stories in the old testament.
This is a question that not only have I asked myself, but many others have asked me as well. What seems to be happening, at least it did with me, was that I was trying to get myself to move out of an emotional scenario that was really doing harm to my soul.
Self gratification is different from filling your own needs. The first has an outcome that depends on others to have it done for you, where truly filling your needs is an internal process first; Which then allows the internal guidance to lead us to take the steps which will have the fulfillment of our need created. It is done in such a way that each of us knows just how we had our needs fulfillment brought to us… for us… by us.
I do a lot of work with my students and clients with this concept of mind chatter, and with so many it is quite difficult to begin to realize how disruptive mind chatter is to our functioning in our world.
So now I have begun to show you how we have ourselves really tied up, then let’s add the ‘New Age’ things of being peaceful and quiet. I have looked at this ‘New Age’ concept. It is another way of tying ourselves up in another neat little bow. I know there is just really one way to do this. That is to begin to be the guardian for ourselves. “How is that done?” you ask, well let me begin to explain.
The only way we can make any lasting change is from the inside out. It is the only way anything will stick, the way change will change your life. So, we know from previous blogs that mind chatter is those voices from our past that parented us into walking all over our right of solace from our internal God. Yes, the right we were born with. To have internal solace always . No matter where we are , or who we are with. Continue reading
Cheating on one’s self. Let me see. This has been a long time coming. I have spent much time contemplating what this means. I have come to the conclusion that we cannot cheat on each other in our relationships. We can only cheat on ourselves. Why did I come to this conclusion? Well, this is why.
