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.
