Sounds like a soap opera right? How much they resemble our lives at times is truly scary. Sometimes we consciously choose that drama and sometimes it is delivered to us to see what we can do with it all. I had a chance to tell this friend of mine who was feeling badly for my daughter that she was living a much more truthful life than all of us. She is looking at the fragility of this life this stay here on what we call our home. I have always had more of a challenge of feeling totally landed here on earth. I now know that there are millions of realities and this one is important to learn from. It is neither pure Maya ( illusions) nor is it the only reality there is. It is not even the only reality we experience.
The lies that exist in being told that this world is just a joke and therefor you don’t really have to do anything is just as destructive as being told this world is everything and your only chance. What is your relationship with the truth of your life? We have to know the lies before we know the real truth. You can’t skip the funky stuff and just float on over to the “good” stuff.
My teacher used to say carry a recording device around and listen to yourself all day. At the end of the day listen to what you have said. It will give you insites into so much but you will get to see the lies you tell all the time along with the wonderful ways you can speak into the hearts and souls of others. It is very revealing.
Another gift is this technique. Pick a situation you are facing and speak into a recording device on just that topic for 1 hour. Yes give yourself one hour and then listen back to it. You will find unearthed wisdom. Yes you are bound to get stuck and say okay I have said enough I’m done but 1 hr keep going. You will unearth all sorts of things. Let yourself, should you choose to accept this gift, be as neutral about what you think is great that came through you as the places you hit the wall.
I want to go back to the last blog and give you my answers for the lies in the second story Lies that were apparent to me.
1. That asking for help is not a good thing
2. When you know what you are short of avoid it.
3. So hard to go where it is hard for us. Easier to say you don’t need or want that thing.
4. If I need something it means I bad I can’t do it myself.
5. What I really want is the hardest thing for me.
Do those two exercises I gave you and see how you communicate with others and then with the self.
