That moment that we breathe life into our self. That we choose to breathe life into our hopes and our dreams, no matter what might be happening around us, is that moment that we observe a true shift within our being.
You deserve love, acceptance, happiness, and fulfillment. It is time to stop pushing against it and stop looking to others to create it within you, but instead consciously choose it within your very being. You have the power to create change within yourself today – that is nobody else’s job, but yours. Choose it, or remain forever stuck.
Be mindful of pushing blame onto others. I no longer personally follow the Christian faith, BUT the philosopher in me says that the following passage holds great wisdom:
"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:3-5
Envy, gossip, and judgement of others keeps us stuck in a place of lack; and as such we do ourselves a great disservice by focusing on the speck in the other person’s eye. We are truly powerful beings; and many of us don’t even realise it. We manifest from that place we are at.
We either manifest from a place of judgement of self and others; and a place of fear and lack OR we consciously choose to mould our lives into something truly beautiful.
I choose my mindset every single day; and so do you.
Choose your beauty. Choose your abundance. And choose to become the best version of yourself.
If we continuously deflect the reflections and the lessons, then might we forever be stuck in an illusion? One that says that leading from a place of fear, manipulation and control is the absolutely only way to ‘win’ in this game called life.
One that suggests we can only be one or the other; the student or the teacher – and that these two roles cannot intermingle. One that says that abundance will always be just out of our reach.
It’s important we stop hindering our own self-growth, by avoiding being a witness to our own self truths.
If everybody is pointing fingers… if everybody is looking outside of themselves… but nobody is willing to do their own self-work – then life will simply blend into a bundle of mirrors, projections, and lessons.
This is quite a sombre existence if you ask me.
We have the power to change this; not just within ourselves, but also within others. But first we need to be willing to stop pointing fingers and instead do our own self-work.
