I wanted to share these notes from from my journal that I wrote down after a meditation out on the back deck a few weeks ago, giving me a clearer picture of the vital importance that all the answers and solutions are found inside ourselves. This is a message that I remind myself of every day.
In moments of forgetting that we are the creators of our lives,
we notice we want or need something -
because we believe we don’t have it.
We can’t see it or find it from the perpective we have.
So we turn our attention and focus
to the outside, looking for it.
In another person.
In our work.
In our environment.
At the mall.
And when “they” don’t give us what we need,
We blame them.
We blame ourselves.
We lash out, feeling angry.
We retreat feeling rejected, resentful. And so much more.
We create beliefs about why they aren’t giving us what we need.
Beliefs about them, about ourselves, about the world.
And we live with this pain.
And all along, we only had to turn our attention back to ourselves,
to our own power to give ourselves what we need.
By finding our pain. Meeting it. Holding it with love and compassion. Then letting the pain go.
When we simply give ourselves what we need, allowing the feelings we want to feel,
when we find what we are looking for inside ourselves,
All those old beliefs about ourselves, about others, about the world just fall away...
And we are free...
to just love and appreciate ourselves
Love and appreciate others
Love and appreciate the world.
And from this place, we can create anything we want!
