Looking to others

We look always to others.

They will help me learn, their diet will make me slim, her book will teach me, I can be a success if they help me…and so on.

The thing is we are responsible for our own health, spirituality, learning, growth, expansion, and actions. Sure others can be examples to follow, an inspiration, but it is up to us to be the light and the example, to be responsible for our own soul and helping it to flourish.

If we rely on others, we are effectively becoming possessed by the minds of others and we are allowing ourselves a get-out to avoid making the sacrifices ourselves. We don’t have to show up.

We can choose to take ownership of what we do and it is more purposeful and nourishing to our spirit.

Trying to avoid life

we often look for the complicated, we seek the problems, we build obstacles, we look for elaborate get outs, we find ways to not show up, we seek approval or permission to stop us from starting, we look for others to seek avoidance with, we, in fact, do anything to avoid our lives.

Then we say ‘life’s too short’ or ‘if only I had more time’ or ‘you only live once’ and so on.

Our life is right now, just enjoy this moment and do something without thinking or do nothing at all, either, and it doesn’t matter, but we could choose to avoid spending every moment trying to avoid life and instead live it.
