We cannot start to make change until we accept and realize (with all our faults) that we are okay just as we are.
When we are not okay with who we are right now, then we are resisting what is. And whenever you resist what is, it persist. So it turns into this quagmire. You want to change, but you can’t change because you’re not okay with what is. It turns into this endless loop.
Are you aware that when you are blaming, pointing the finger at someone else, there are three more pointing right back at you. Thus the quagmire. The issue is not out there! Let me repeat. The issue is not out there.
Let me remind you (again). Everything, and I mean everything you experience is a reflection of your own mind. But the good news is – it’s with the mind you had yesterday still running it’s program. So you change your program you change your experience. But now we are back to – I’m OK right here and right now. And what I am experiencing is what I created yesterday. I am not a victim any longer. Because all I need to do is quit resisting yesterday’s creation and decide something new.
Another trap is the right/wrong game. Nothing is right or wrong. You either enjoyed what you created or you don’t. It either brought you pleasure or pain/sorrow. Now there are reasons why programs are running in the background that may cause us to keep repeating the same experience. Have you ever left one job full of negative people just to arrive at a new one and in a short time notice they are negative too, if not worst? Was it the job or was it you bringing the old you to the new place?
Sometimes we’re so busy running that we don’t realize that we are recreating our lives every moment expecting that the new one will be different if we didn’t do anything different from before. Shew. That was a mouthful. Did you get that? In other words, if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll always have what you always had. But somehow we really think that this time it will be different. Silly us.
