The truth of who you are

sky-space-dark-galaxy-pixabay.com-pexels.com

“Contrary to popular thinking, being worthy isn’t something you earn, it’s something you recognize.”

– Mike Dooley

______________________________________

You know why you love the feeling of worthiness? You love it because that is who you are. You are worthy, love, joy, free, appreciation and empowered. That is why you love these emotions. You do not “need to” have something in order to be who you are. You are already all of these. You may want many things for the sheer joy of feeling who you are again and again which is great. You will always want more but if that place of wanting is from a place of lack, it will be an arduous journey to what you want. If the place of wanting is from a place of being in touch with who you are and then wanting more, the journey will be easier. As Abraham say, “The perfect creative stance is satisfaction where I am, and eagerness for more.” We are all evolving perfection.

Yes, some people who are disconnected from who they are may want to only consider you worthy if you have certain things but that does not change in any way who you are. There is nothing wrong with you and there is nothing wrong with them. They are just in their moment of disconnection looking at you.

How do you know who you are? You know it by the good feeling you feel when you feel these emotions. Your good feeling tells you the truth of who you are.

I’am going to be happy – no matter what

pexels-laughing child indian - Surajith S.

 

“We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be — which takes care of everything.

Even if you don’t have reason to be happy — make it up. Fantasize it.

Make a decision that you’re going to be happy one way or another — no matter what.

No matter what, I’m going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody;

if I have to never watch television again;

if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I’m going to be happy.

If I never have to see that person’s face again, I’m going to be happy.

If I have to see that person’s face, I’m going to find something to see in that person’s face that makes me happy.

I’m going to be happy.

I’m going to be happy.

I’m going to be happy.”

– Abraham Hicks

(the above words by Abraham have been shared from the blog joypassiondesire)

Off course, the “inner work” is to reach a point wherein no matter what your physical reality is, you feel happy but if you are not able to feel happy while in your current physical reality, then are you supposed to tolerate your negative emotions till you wither away?

No! You can get some distance between that which pains you and you. In that time and space that you get, you can sharpen your focus till the time you are able to focus on any topic (even if it was painful to you earlier) and find something in it to feel better about it (it can be but need not be enthusiastically happy…. just feeling better is awesome too while on your path to feeling good about it) i.e. you achieve stability in your good feeling thoughts. As you do that, you reconnect to your invincibility, to your freedom. The power which creates worlds flows through you. In fact, it is you.

Yes, sometimes, because of the way we are focused on a situation, we cannot feel positive emotion. There is nothing wrong in it. We are human and we need to be easy on ourselves. Negative emotion always tells us that we have grown but have not gone ahead with our growth. Whenever we feel upto it, we can change the way we are focused on it and thereby taste true freedom – i.e. free to feel whatever emotion we want to feel irrespective of what is happening around us. Sometimes, choosing to distance oneself from what is painful helps in reaching this place of strength and therefore, is the path of least resistance (it need not be but sometimes, it is and only you know that by the way you feel about it). From this place of strength, we are of value to ourselves and to anyone else we may want to be of value to.

Standing up for yourself

woman - Patrick Fore - unsplash

“Standing up for yourself isn’t about changing the other person. It’s about honoring your self worth.”

– Assertiveness for earth angels

____________________

At times, you may choose to stand up for yourself verbally by being assertive (i.e. being polite and firm at the same time) but it’s helpful to keep in mind that you are always standing up for yourself vibrationally or at a visceral level. What you are feeling gets you more to feel the same. If you do not like the life experiences you are living, you may choose to stand up for yourself verbally in the short term but the long term and more effective way is to focus on what you are feeling most of the time as that is standing up for yourself on a much deeper level.  That is the signal you are emitting to the universe and that’s the signal the law of attraction is matching you up with all the time. You may choose to stand up for yourself with your words in the present moment and sometimes, it may be the path of least resistance in the moment but whenever you are in the privacy of your room wherein you can think without much distraction, you can choose to focus in a way which makes you feel better more often and as you feel better more often, you get more to feel even more better about. That’s how you start standing up for yourself vibrationally so that you do not enter many situations wherein you would need to stand up for yourself verbally. It’s being proactive rather than reactive. It’s living life easy. The more easy way is also the most effective way.

You are Infinite Intelligence

It was a pleasant surprise to see a like from David Eagleman himself on a post on my Life Coaching with Sonal page on Facebook last week. In the post, I had shared an article titled “Seeing with the brain” (which I shared on twitter as well as on this blog). This article was from the blog “thebestbrainpossible.com” and it was about David Eagleman’s phenomenal book “Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain” in which he writes about how we can see with the brain ..i.e. how vision is learned. David Eagleman is a neuroscientist, NYT bestselling author, Guggenheim Fellow, and creator of the PBS series THE BRAIN.

I am sharing his TED talk below which is one of the best Ted talks I have ever seen. You can see, in his eyes, the passion he has for the awesome work he is doing.

 

 

You are magnificent

mirror - drmakete lab

“You’ve no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.

Nothing seemed right.

 

What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine,

or water to the Ocean.

Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.

 

It’s no good giving my heart and my soul

because you already have these.

 

So – I’ve brought you a mirror.

 

Look at yourself and remember me.”

–  Jalaluddin Rumi, Essential Rumi, Coleman Barks, pg141

We are starstuff and we are also creators

universe - Greg Rakozy

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”

“We are star stuff which has taken its destiny into its own hands.”

– Carl Sagan, Cosmos

You are the one

 

woman looking outside - Maria Victor

“I know what it’s like. I’ve seen it played out a zillion times. You’re waiting for that magical day when someone makes the connection and recognizes who you really are. Maybe they’ll first catch the sparkle in your eye. Or perhaps they’ll marvel at your insights and the depth of your spirit. Someone who will help you connect the dots, believe in yourself, and make sense of it all. Someone who will understand you, approve of you, and unhesitatingly give you a leg up so that life can pluck your ready, ripened self from the branch of magnificence. Well, I’m here to tell you, your wait is over. That someone, is you.”

― Mike Dooley

We are all connected

different flowers

One sees instances wherein people are teased or mocked just because they are different. It could be because one is fat, skinny, dark, tall, short – anything that is a little different from the others around that person.

On the other hand, when we look around we can see how important it is to appreciate rather than look down on upon someone who is different. A few days ago, I read that at around 170 million year ago, there were no flowers. The first flowers appeared in the Cretaceous period around 125 million years ago. It made me think that when the first flowers appeared, did some of the creatures at that time look at them as weird just because they were different from what was around? When one looks at evolution, one notices so many new things appear as time goes on. Initially, some may look at them as strange, some may even mock them for being different but slowly, the “different” becomes the “new normal”. Being different is just what it is i.e. “different” – not good or bad. What makes it a reason for someone to tease someone else is the way it is perceived and we can always change our perception.

When one decides to look at the bigger picture of it all, it becomes so easy to be at ease with “different”. Looking at the big picture also helps in taking your power back, in your mind, when at the receiving end of barbs or comments. It helps in reconnecting to the strength within.

Not just evolution but there are so many things about our existence, about the world and about the universe which form the bigger picture. The fact that the same energy which has created the universe throbs through you and me, the fact that the earth is “just hanging” in space, the fact that the earth has been revolving and rotating in close proximity to other planets with precision, the fact that your cells have infinite intelligence flowing through them and know what to do, the fact that we start off as few cells and then each cell knows what it has to do – which one becomes the eyeball and which one becomes the nail, the fact that our blood flows throughout our body without anyone telling it to. There so many things which we are not aware of on a day-to-day basis but if we take a moment to think about them, it can be so awe inspiring. It can actually change the way we perceive life. When the wholeness of it all starts sinking in, it can be deeply moving.
