Howdy this wonderful Friday,
Have your daily observations included an “ordinary guru” or two this week? The day will come when you will no longer doubt that there are more “everyday gurus” passing your way than you can shake a stick at. Glory be that day! TK has a great question (see below)
Hi Mr White
Sometimes I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about, and sometimes I even think you’re full of baloney. For example, in one of your blogs you said, “live for yourself.” That sounds very self-centered and selfish to me. Where am I seeing this wrong?
Thank you, TK
“To live for yourself” is to live by your own values, by your own principles, by what you deem is important to you. When you are “living for others” you live by their values, you live by their rules, you live to satisfy them rather than do what truly satisfies you. To seek outside of yourself for what is truly important and valid for you, well that’s just plain foolish, TK. Who, better than you, can tell you what feels right and true for you?
I hope that helps clear this up a bit. As to whether or not I am full of baloney, perhaps that is so to some extent. Polarity exists in all of us. How are we to notice our strengths if we have no weaknesses? How are we to acknowledge our intelligence if we don’t have a little baloney to contrast it against? 😊
Blessing to you TK, Rob
What about you? Are you “living for yourself” or are you living to please others? Are you adopting their values and rules even if they aren’t a good fit for you? You must delve deep inside of yourself to answer this, which is what we do with these blogs together.
Blessings and love to all of you, Rob
PS Learning the difference between genuine thinking and acting on thoughts that others impose on you, now that is a very worthy task to take on
