Yoga, Breath, Light, Love
Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.” And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel — and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good.
WOW!! That’s pretty heavy isn’t it? Whether you are a fan of Abraham and his teachings or not….this most definitely creates a “pause for thought” moment. Ahhaa…yes SIR! EVEN if it’s to read, pause and say, phooey! That’s a bunch of malarkey or….hmmm….maybe, just maybe…no, no,no…there can’t be any truth to that…it’s NEVER my fault! BUT wait just one darn minute. How could you possibly toss the possibility aside without even trying to prove it right or wrong?? Or to simply consider it…
Here’s what you’re going to do….or not since I am SO NOT the boss of you…. BUT if you want to “play along”, dig way down deep, go ahead..it’s okay…it’s just you….sure it maybe dark and scary, and perhaps even a bit cavernous in there, but try it….close your eyes…come on! no peeking!! now open your ears and listen…shhhh….listen really hard…go ahead, scrunch up your face if you need to, even hold your breath if it helps, but really, really, listen…what’s that?? You don’t hear anything?
I am not surprised…especially if this is your first rodeo (not sure where that came from??)as they say! It will take consistent practice to be able to really listen and for some people it is really, really hard and scary because once you are able to hear “in there” you may feel compelled to take action…yikes….then what???? Or maybe you choose not to let go but rather remain deaf. Totally up to you…life is all about the choices we make, right?
If nothing else, though, it just might be worth considering the fact that when you rely on others for your happiness you are likely to be very unhappy…..unless, of course, pointing the finger gives you joy!?!
