If something or someone doesn’t bring us peace, joy, nourish our soul and make us feel good then best to stop engaging with it or them.
We don’t have to be confrontational, we don’t have to make a scene, we do not need to justify our choices to anyone. We can just peacefully walk away. When we feel the need to justify or make a statement or fight something or someone, then it is from our mind and its ego. Being ourselves, and simply stepping away peacefully and without any drama or attachment comes from our true essence and soul.
We never have to justify or seek permission. It’s our journey, be with who you feel to be with and do things that bring you joy now in this moment.
What we feel is exactly that, it is what we feel and does not need to be justified to others or most importantly to ourselves. We do not need to analyse it or get permission.
When we feel like having a ‘lazy’ day that’s OK, or when we do not feel that we want to do a particular thing or we feel we want to eat something…whatever it is, it’s OK. Equally, it’s Ok to feel sad, or to feel unhappy or whatever. It is the resistance as well as the analysis that causes the suffering within.
If we engage with our mind and the story of ‘little me’ then what we feel has to be analysed and checked to see if it fits the story, the image, the ego and so on. Thus we torment ourselves and override our feelings.
It just doesn’t matter, go with what you feel, enjoy the moment and enjoy whatever it is. Feelings come in the present moment from the soul and it just is, accept them.
