What Can We Let Go?

Are you holding onto something that you need to let go of?Questions

baggage

What baggage do we carry around that would best be dropped off? Emotional baggage like the following?

  • Why life hasn’t been fair
  • Why certain people failed us
  • How some folks hurt us
  • Why I’m not good enough

There can be many a psychological baggage that we lug around, let’s discover some and let go!

journal & forgive

If we’re not sure what we’re carrying around then let’s listen to our ‘recorded message’. This is the message we playback to self and others when we’re complaining about life. It’s a message that’ll surface if we either pay attention or journal our thoughts. The surest way to free self and move forward with gusto is to recognize this recording. Pay full attention to it, forgive the other person or self as needed and move on. Doing this daily for a while might be necessary before this emotional charge loses its hold on us!

What’s Missing?

The problem is you were meant for growth and you're not growing. - Vernon Howard

unhappiness

Many of us, at least some of the time, feel that something’s missing. We don’t feel we’re in control of our own destiny and happiness. Something is amiss, what is it? What are we lacking?

an answer

Change is ever present. And growth is the very hallmark of life and the universe. That’s the very reason we exist, for growth. If we don’t grow mentally and spiritually we stagnate and something deep inside us, our soul, feels the discontent. That discontent is what we sense. The way around it is to actively seek growth and not get used to living in our comfort zone. Meaningful growth then is the key to banishing this discontent!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM a growth seeker!

How To Earn Respect…

When we treat children with respect, they in turn learn how to respect other human beings. - Daisaku Ikeda

give respect

To earn respect we must give respect. And we must give it genuinely. When we do that the other person sees us more generously. Generosity automatically earns respect. Generous listening is the next step; it’s the icing on the cake and it’s the most giving thing any human can do.

all children

We’re all children at heart. We want to be appreciated, heard, loved and respected. If we treat everyone we meet as childlike individuals we won’t have too many relationship problems. Therefore we won’t have too many life problems. Interacting with others from a childlike perspective is about as close as it gets to a ‘silver bullet’ for all of society’s ills!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM full of childlike respect!
