You are powerless, completely powerless to change anyone’s life
That includes your children
they may praise you when you help them in some way
they may yell and demand that you help them MORE to change
They may even try to manipulate you with guilt for not helping them in the way they want to be helped
And still, they will only change when they want to change, regardless of what you do
And yet, where do you spend most of your time?
On other people
And where does your mind dwell most of the time?
On other people’s dramas
And all your dealings with them
What they said
or did not say
What they did
Or did not do
What they should have done
Or not done
What you will say to them
or not say
How angry ‘they’ made you when they treated you THAT way
And then you throw yourself back into the nonsense in the next second, having forgotten how bad it felt the last time you did that…
And so on
and so on
AND. SO. ON!
If I had not lived to see one of my previous spiritual leaders come to me and say “I gave 40 years of my life to this person’s vision and now, I have nothing” then maybe I would leave you to keep doing this stupid thing you do to your life
Just today, I spoke to someone who I had spoken to 4 or 5 years ago, who having abandoned her work with me because it seemed ‘hard’ was still in the same place, with the same complaints, with the same emptiness, and now, wishing she had simply stayed the course
How much longer will YOU continue to do this to yourself?
Nope, this path is not easy
Everyday noise, nonsense and drama is CERTAINLY EASIER than feeling your feelings, facing your inner darkness and taking bold steps forward into your next level
And yet, you are in pain already
Which is why it is so much easier to handle everyone else’s noise, nonsense and drama so that you do not have to face your own
And yet, you cannot thrive and prosper in your true design while you do not do anything that allows you to thrive and prosper in your true design
Right now, I EXHORT you to not allow yourself to become one of the many sad stories of people who never ever choose to live their own lives as they spend all their time and energy trying to change everyone else’s life, TO NO AVAIL
Right now I CALL YOU to WAKE UP AND LIVE YOUR OWN AWESOME LIFE!
Right now, they are just $2
That may change
Do not delay
Now is the time.
