Life is in session NOW.

Let go each day of everything you think you know about yourself and just BE without judgments, without agenda, and without a plan. This allows for new visions and understanding of what it means to self-realize; a deeper understanding that has no ego, or ID attached to it.

This letting go brings in peace, inner joy, understanding and nonidentifying through the labels and judgments by others and ourselves. Your immense presence is as simple as gazing up into the open dark skies that shine the light for everyone’s benefit without agenda only to express its unnamed gifts.

Who you are is beyond any temporary ID. Your true unrealized nature is expansive, unidentifiable you are more than the name, title or any belongings you have acquired in this life. Your opportunities are to empty yourself of yourself to realize you are much more than what is happening now.

The next time someone asks you, or you ask yourself, “who am I?” The answer, “I AM awake.” Dolby Dharma 🕉️☪️☮️❣️

A quote from Swami Rama (“The Art of Joyful Living”) “There is only one real book to study and learn from— the greatest of all books—and that is the very manuscript that you, yourself, are.”

“Your own Self-realization is the greatest service you can render the world.” ~ Ramana Maharsh

Just the way you are!

Why is it that we mentally beat and criticize ourselves up for traits, missteps, misrepresentations, and mishaps about ourselves so easy, but when it comes to owning, embracing, loving, allowing our True Nature to just be, that is not so easy!

We want to have an individual image to the outer world, even to ourselves; we want to fit in and show ourselves and others how put together we are. Slowly we fade away into something other than our individual, wonderous, original self.

To go within and have an honest look-see is ask within how do we look and appear to ourselves; that is where our attention needs to go; we decide what to change, rebuild, and let go, not someone else.

The practice is to embrace ourselves fully without the voices, people, and media dictating how we need to be in order to fit into a tight pigeon hole of life. We must tell ourselves we are good enough just the way we are.

We are here to create, to be different and to be our masterpiece. Art is messy; art is not symmetric or linear. Art is an original masterpiece particular to the creator. We are a human expression of creativity, imagination, and grace.

Mantra: I am in tune with the truth of myself.
I know…
I decide… what needs to change or not.

The final forming of a character lies in their own hands.

“Let it Ride”

expectations

Day Twenty-Two of the Self-love 31-day 5-minute challenge: Expectations.

A “BIG energy” expectations; we all have them, and they can rule over us if we let them. I believe the only way to avoid the dark side of expectations is to learn how to ‘manage’ our anticipation of people, places, and situations. An unfortunate Challenge of having high hopes; it can and does prevent us from enjoying the experience altogether.

Therefore, let’s practice being open to life!

We are not going just to delete the idea of not having expectation(s), nor should we, having an idea, or wanting something in our lives and expecting it to turn out is natural, it gives us something to move towards. What causes the downside; is our attachment to the outcome. It can wallop us when we don’t get the desired result. Most of us have experienced great disappoint at some point in our life.

When we hold steadfast to our ideas about how things need to turn out, we can’t help but be disappointed, hurt and let down.

What can we do? We can practice having ‘less’ expectations, be open to more exploration, and trust the process, that life will throw us curve balls, people also what their way and situation don’t always turn out the way we want!

But that doesn’t and won’t always change our disappointment. But if we can practice adopting a free-flowing attitude, and a knowing, that things don’t always turn out the way we planned, we are meeting our expectations with an openness that allows us not to be so rigid and disappointed with our outcomes, but open to new opportunities.
This way of being affords us let judgments of ourselves and others.

There are amazing benefits practicing acceptance; most situations in our lives needs to be mindfully worked toward to set us free. Dolby Dharma

change4

 

What happens when we change things about ourselves? We all evolve for many reasons; choice, circumstances, and unexplainable energies that creep in and cause us to what to make a shift in our lives that might make us different, unsteady or even unrecognizable.
 
Change can be gradual, or sudden. While we are changing things up about ourselves or our way of being, we can appear wishy-washy to self and others. The people around us, including ourselves, like the familiar. As we are shapeshifting the old way of doing or being, we might also change our opinions, contradict ourselves occasionally and appear inconsistent with our actions and or beliefs.
 
Personally, for me, when I decided to give up a recreational hobby I shared with many peeps, I personally witnessed how uncomfortable change can be within my circle of friends and family. Just do something different, or don’t go along with an old behavior and immediately, someone is letting you know they think it is ridiculous, or you can’t do this, or they question your intentions for the change.
Maybe my change caused them to look at their own behaviors, no matter what the reason was for my decision to be different or the amount of heat I was getting, the change was uncomfortable for a while. The toughest part of my choice change was believing I could do this against all the odds, and not falling into the consistency trap; I did it yesterday. ‘Therefore I shall do it today,’ without caving into the pressure of other people’s judgments of me.
 
It is up to you to stand in YOUR truth, freedom, and way of being in spite of the oppositions that come your way.
 
The is the biggest challenge in life is beating to the heart of your spirit; your individually is your gift to yourself, you can say and do things that appear completely off the beaten path and still be ‘Right On’! Because YOUR path or YOUR change is contained within you and nobody knows the depths of your humanness. You are an emerging bEing that can change your views, opinions, ideas, and beliefs at will and as frequently as you desire.
 
You don’t need permission to BE who you are or what you want to evolve into; change, callings, and the inconsistencies ‘whisper’ to us all the time. Don’t Let the fear of other people’s judgments, opinions, and ridicule instill fear into your heart. Life is a constant crossroad. Whichever road YOU choose, you are on a path of self-discovery.  😉
 
“How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others.”
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
