What we feel about our self worth relates directly to how much we value ourselves and those choices we make. The choices all begin with thought. When we surrender to our inner guided thoughts we feel the power in those thoughts and we are compelled to act on them. We are in touch with our authentic beings.
What I am referring to is those thoughts that create warm and good feelings within us. As we become more and more connected to our sense of self worth and value we will choose more wisely and in turn create more powerful effect on the world around us. This is one reason to take time to quiet the mind and listen carefully and be mindful of how we are feeling as each thought presents itself.
Creating a feeling of self worth is directly connected to how we value our words and our ways of being. Being kind and compassionate; being accepting and forgiving; being willing to love without condition are all-powerful contributors to self worth. It is time for a major check-in. I’ve got this!
There is no excuse for not being loving. There is no excuse for not being kind. There is no excuse for not being honest. There is no excuse for not being peaceful. And you know we still actually think that, what we are giving as excuses, is fact! “Oh! I can’t be loving because “someone” did something to me.” “Oh! I can’t be kind because they said—.”"Oh! I can’t be honest because it would make them mad.” “Oh! I can’t be peaceful because look at all I have to do.”
When are we going to take full responsibility for all that goes on in our lives and make choice the first thing we acknowledge as our “gift” to invoke?
First, we may want to, take a deep breath and look around us and give a huge “thank you” for all that we do have. Then we can begin to feel the benefits of breathing and gratitude. As soon as these good feelings begin to replace the tension we can then make a decision to say goodbye to all the excuses we have been making.
I don’t know about you. I want to be loving! I want to be kind. I want to be honest. I certainly want to be be peaceful. So – excuses be gone! Wayne Dyer has written a book with that same title – get it – it may change your life!
For all my life I’ve felt so different – so separate from all those with whom I share this world and that feeling of being “so different” has often been painful for me. It has caused me to experience extreme loneliness even in the midst of many wonderful friends.
My need for a peaceful existence has been with me in the form of a deep passion from early childhood. My desire to see people “get along” has, at times, been the actual separator between me and those I’ve wished to see “get along”. Instead of loving and being together I have created divisions that have extended themselves between me and all those I chose to bring together. How Ironic!
Finding what I believe to be the precipitant of this long-term longing for peace, (A situation I’ll share at a later date) has opened up a channel of freedom for me that has brought with it a time of true peace – the likes of which I have never felt before. Although, in this world of opposites, the freedom and peace I feel is matched, if only temporarily, with feeling of deep sadness and regret for all those times that would have been so different had I gained this understanding long ago. I recognize, however, that the journey I have traveled in this life has brought with it many tumultuous situations that have in turn shown amazing miracles.
And now it is my heartfelt knowledge and inner knowing that brings me to this place of forgiveness and letting go which, in turn, returns me to that feeling of freedom and peacefulness. I am abundantly clear that we are all one in this world and it is my place to simply share my way of being and deep understanding in the hopes that others, who desire peace and freedom, will learn from my journey and choose to incorporate those positive steps into their own pathway to perfection. This, after all, is my life purpose and I am so blessed to have the benefit of this understanding so that I can affect the shift I choose to create. I am available to talk to your group and look forward to meeting you.
Selfishness has been given a bad rap. Many of us think that when we always do things to please ourselves, we create something negative for another person or other persons. Well I am here to tell you I disagree. You see, it is simple – when I am happy and satisfied and balanced in my life, chances are all the people in my life feel the benefit of all these components. Now I am not talking about creating the great experiences in my life at the expense of another. No, I am merely recognizing choices made that are in integrity for me in creating a balanced life. Many years ago when my mother was raising my brother and me, she had selfishness cornered. She was the best mother and we truly enjoyed having her as our mother. What I am saying is she made sure that she took great care of herself and was totally in integrity when it came to creating balance in her role as mother and wife and part-time assistant to my father. At 2pm every day, mother would caution my brother and me to play quietly, to be good and not disturb her. She forecast her return, to our side, within 2 hours and expected us to follow her demands. There was never any doubt in our minds, that what our mother said she would do, we could utterly rely on. During mothers’ quiet time she would either sleep, write letters, read or all of the above. Her purpose was all about maintaining her balance. Keeping time for her so that she would never feel regretful or even resentful about the time spent with my brother and me. This was the most valuable lesson that my mother has taught to me. Whenever, I hear parents lamenting, that they, “……..don’t have enough time!” I say, “Who is stopping you?” Needless to say they have nothing to say except, “Me!” This is the time for the decision to be selfish to be made. You not only owe it to yourself, you owe it to those people in your world. They need to experience the benefits of your selfishness. This is a win win for everyone. When were you last selfish? Allow me to assist you in being selfish. Remember, you are the creator in your life. Create powerfully and your journey will be abundant and masterful. Ooooodles of love – Mahri
