Lose Your Idea of How Things Are Supposed to Go

 

When you stop making plans of how you believe things are SUPPOSED to go, you open yourself up to a whole new set of outcomes and possibilities that you never would have imagined existed. You allow the power of God and the Universe to work on your behalf instead of your own fearful thoughts to try and control the outcome of every situation. When things aren’t working out, all you need to do is trust. Trust that their is a bigger plan for everything, even though you may not be able to see it right now. When you live in trust, and go with the flow of events instead of trying to “make” things go the way you want them to, life becomes a spontaneous flow of joy. And you start to surrender your path to a higher intelligence, which makes everything run a lot smoother

 

If It Has the Power to Anger You, There is a Part of You That Believes It Is True

Anything that is able to bring about a negative emotional reaction from you, whether it be anger, frustration, annoyance, criticism etc… is a sign that there is an issue w/ yourself (your ego) that needs to be addressed. Nothing that you don’t deep down somewhat believe will be able to bring about a negative reaction. The ego, in attempting to self-preserve, will try to blame the anger on the behavior of the other person. Next time something really brings up anger or rage or annoyance in you (and that includes people, groups of people, or maybe a past event), instead of blaming them, ask yourself “what part of my ego is offended by this? Where am I holding on to an attachment about my sense of self that this person threatens?” This is one of the toughest habits to get in when you start on the path of self awareness. But the positive aspect of always pointing the finger back on yourself is this: A. You work through emotions much quicker, bc you actually deal with them yourself instead of expecting someone else to change THEIR behavior in order for YOU to be happy. B. there is a level of consciousness that exists where you see everything as perfect just as it is. You stop judging things as “right” or “wrong” and easily accept things as they are. This stems from accepting yourself as you are, when you accept yourself & believe in your own power to control your life you stop being angry & afraid that other people are taking away your freedom. Remember, only the ego can get mad, or be offended or be pissed off. So these emotions ALWAYS stem from your illusory “sense of self”, use these emotions as a perfect guide to where you still need work on YOURSELF. You will empower yourself in amazing ways when you choose to “Blame” your OWN ego for the emotions you have, not other people/places/things. Have an amazing Sunday!!
