Powerful Thinking-Part 2
- Friday, 18 December 2009
Our life is filled with continuous change. The challenges we face on a daily basis are all learning experiences. Without change there would be no growth. The more we allow change to take place, the easier it is to move forward. This leads us into the next topics of living in the present moment, giving your power away and the illusion of fear.
There are so many books that discuss living in the present moment. What's the big deal about living in the "now"? Well if you’re not living in the "now" you can only be living in two other places, the past or the future. Giving your power away to the past will continually bring the past into the present. If you live in the future you’re living in an imaginary world that has not manifested yet.
It's okay to envision goals and dreams in your life but if you want to create a healthy future then concentrate on today because what you do today creates tomorrow. A lot of people are talking about 2012. Yes, there is a planetary alignment taking place and there may be some changes occurring on earth. There is no need to fear these changes as we are all part of it. We may not be able to control the path of the planets, but we can control how we react to these changes. We are creating the reality of 2012 today. Focus on Love and share it with everyone you meet. Through this love we can heal the past and create the future that we want to see.
Another thing that people give their power away to is the unknown. Through uncertainty, people allow the ego to take control and create fear. A lot of people would much rather confide in the security of fear instead of finding out the truth. Some people use fear as a means of protection. However, fear is merely an illusion so how can it protect you? Many people fear what will happen tomorrow and when tomorrow comes they fear what the next day will bring, which creates a never-ending cycle. Fear creates more fear until you shake out of it. We are the creators of the unknown, so if you fear it, in a way you fear yourself. Instead, stand in your own power and trust and love yourself without conditions.
There are two different forms of love. There is love with conditions and love without conditions. To love yourself or another without conditions means there are no stipulations or judgments attached. There is just love in it’s purest form. So in order to “live in love” without conditions, you must consciously live your life without judgment of yourself, others and the actions of others. This is a process that all starts from within you. Once you love yourself unconditionally, this change naturally radiates from you and affects everything you come in contact with. You are love at this point; it does not reside outside of you. You are living love!
