Life can seem so complicated at times, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you ask yourself a few of these simple questions regularly, things will get easier.
When you are considering making a decision, or taking action of some kind or even when just thinking about someone. Ask yourself:
What would LOVE do now?
Am I choosing LOVE or FEAR?
Is this for The Highest Greater Good of All?
Choices become easy.
For me anyway, this life is just one big illusion, and we don’t have to be ill, we don’t have to be unhappy, we don’t have to be miserable, and you can buy into all the schools of thought that tell you different, and you can become and remain helpless, a victim if you wish, and I do know what I’m talking about, because I went to that school and graduated with flying colours (Or did I?)
But having spent the best part of my life so far in that unhappy illusion, I’ve come to see it, just for what it is, a big fat lie!
And you can choose to stay in your illusion, and I can choose to stay in mine, and I know I cannot save anyone, and I do not wish to try, I am merely sharing information with you, what you do with it is entirely up to you. You and you alone, have the same choice that I did, to take some information and work with it and see what happens. It’s a choice to be miserable, or a choice to be happy. It’s that simple.
There are no limits my friend, no limits! The bars on our cages are the ones we put there ourselves, albeit unconsciously. Every ‘Must’, ‘Should’, ‘Have to’, or ‘Can’t’, that we adhere to, enslaves us even more.
And you can remain in the Fearful Illusion, seeing and feeling your separateness, your disconnection, your aloneness, your anger, your frustration, your doubts, your discontent, your darkness, your despair, with your special conditions, your attachments and expectations, your external control, or you can choose in this moment, that enough is enough, and you can choose to step into the light my friend, you can choose to step into the illusion of ‘Love’.
No nothing will change in the world around you immediately. So if you’re coming from there to here, you’ll probably be asking yourself, ‘Why should I bother, what’s in it for me, what’s the payback?’
Well I’m glad you asked…. where should I begin? Oh yes the illusion of ‘Love’ always begins with yourself. That means loving yourself completely, accepting who you are now and moving forward, choosing to think loving thoughts of yourself, being kind to yourself. No it doesn’t mean elevating yourself onto a pedestal, your ego would have fun with that, over time you would begin to think you are better than others, this doesn’t work, no more than putting others on pedestals will either, that’s a lose, lose situation, no…. you stay on the ground, but make enough equal space for yourself on the level, then you will never feel superior or inferior ever again, great for your self esteem! And once you love yourself, you will like yourself, your own company, you will no longer feel lonely, perhaps alone at times but not lonely, not desperate to fill the empty spaces just for the sake of it, no, your alone time will become special something precious.
When you begin to master loving yourself, you will see your world with new eyes. Now that you aren’t judging and criticizing or doing anything to hurt yourself, that includes dealing with your anger, your fears, your mistrust, your insecurities, you will feel more loving towards others. You don’t need to put others down, to build yourself up, you don’t need to own or control anyone, you see that there is nothing to lose, you free yourself of the things that previously you clung to in fear, and you let them go easily, knowing that what is for you, will come to you, in it’s own time.
New people come into your life to uplift and support you, to build you up, now that you are a loving person; you attract more loving people and situations. You see that it’s not all about getting, and now you see what you can give in any situation, no longer being concerned about giving too much, but remaining mindful that in all things a balance must be reached, and checking in with emotions, of how you feel, will always indicate to you if it’s time to check that while you are being useful, you won’t be used. No longer a doormat, you have a new found respect for yourself and your time and efforts. Evaluating each situation and personal encounter differently and no longer generalizing that ‘They are all the same’. You start to feel really good about yourself.
You find yourself in the light, and your heart fills with joy and you see things for what they really are, just illusions, one feels good, one doesn’t, and you get to choose which one you want to experience. Fear or Love? Despair or Hope? Separateness or being connected? Frustrated or Satisfied? Sadness or Joy? Miserable or Happy? Illness or Health? It all becomes and empowering choice…. What do you choose?
