True Freedom Begins In Your Mind!
Doesn't it seem like there's been so much controversy lately in our country? Seems like friends and brothers are turning on each other at every corner. Some aspects of social media and the news have been SO nasty and negative. It's really been bothering me. I decided to turn the TV off.
As I was thinking about this month's newsletter, I was reflecting on what freedom really means. Yes, I Love Our Country and I'm proud to be an American, and we're lucky we have opportunities all around us to change our lives, if we want to.
However, real freedom, to me anyway, means being able to choose what is right, good and true for me, not anyone else. We always have the choice to make a change, to change our mind. At any time, you have the power to make different choices, to decide to be a better version of yourself.
Figure out what makes you happy and then Go For It. That's why you're here.
The only person stopping you from being happy, successful, healthy, loved, fulfilled, is you. True FREEDOM begins in your mind!
Remember, YOU are a Beautiful Spirit having a human experience. You are NOT a victim, unless you want to be. Yes, bad things happen, how you respond to them is your choice. You did not come here to complain, or be less than anyone else, or even like anyone else, or to hide your amazing brilliance. You are Uniquely YOU! There's No one else exactly like you, and there never will be!
You came here into your beautiful physical form, (organic human body computer) to experience life....to dance, to sing, to achieve, to smell the roses, to be. Sometimes you fall down and scrape your knees. Sometimes people hurt you. Regardless of how things may appear outside of you, or how others behave, you are perfect as you are. Every experience you've ever had has been designed for you to grow and learn, to give you strength and courage!
Be Happy: Forget all the negativity and focus on your purpose on earth! Let the past go, it's over!
It doesn't matter who is right and who is wrong....these conversations will continue with or without you, like they have for centuries. It's true. So, why waste one moment, one ounce of your mind, your joy, your energy, your health, your life, on things you cannot change or control? Focus on the little things. Take a walk, plant some flowers, read a good book, take a hot bubble bath, do something nice for someone else. If you want to be involved and help, pick something close to your heart, locally. If it makes you happy, do it. However, if something is stressing you out and making you unhappy, focus your thoughts and energy on something else, something which brings you peace and joy.
I LOVE the Serenity Prayer when I'm feeling wound tight or I when I'm trying to control things or situations, which are beyond my control:
God Grant Me the Serenity to Accept the Things I Cannot Change...
The Courage to Change the Things I Can,
and the Wisdom to Know the Difference.
Try it...find out if it will help put things in the proper perspective for you.
Much Love and Light,
