Hello my “ordinary guru” seeking friends,
Life is always here to support you. It never stops sending you a guru or two. Never. Your job is to look honestly at “you.” Yes, you must be willing to become completely transparent with yourself if you are ever to get to truly know yourself. Ray is looking into that matter (below).
Hi Mr. White
I want to own myself. I know that I do not own myself because if I did then when I affirm, “I am happy and successful,” I would do things to be happy and successful, but I don’t. How can I tell when I am speaking the truth to myself when I make a positive affirmation?
Any ideas? Thank you very much for your wisdom. Ray Moran
When affirming what you choose your life to be about, pay attention to your inner self-talk. Not so much to the words, but to the feelings those inner conversations bring upon you. Forget the literal meaning when you affirm, “I am happy and successful.” What does it actually feel like when you affirm that.
What’s that sad feeling that follows? Is there one? Is it that you WISH you were happy and successful, but you secretly say, “NO way”? How you feel is revealed with the inner tone of voice of your self-talk, it is revealed in the expression on your face, and again in your body posture. Those are three ways that your inner spirit expresses through you. The words you use to express affirmations are your intellect expressing, but it has little clout when it comes to the end-result. You’ve found that out.
It is this kind of inner investigation that will give you access to ownership of your life, Ray.
It’s another question to ask, “how do I turn things around for me?” That’s what every one of these blogs is about.
Blessings to you Ray, Rob
For a relationship with yourself to truly work, you must be willing to own your experiences and pay attention to what they are truly trying to tell you. All of this makes more and more sense to you when you glean the diamonds offered in these many blogs that we share together.
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
PS To have a dauntless will to understand yourself completely – that is your work, and your work alone. It will pay off with incredible rewards! < That right there is a diamond!
