- You need to be at your best. In this principle, hopefully you'll have connected with a deeper sense of contentment. When we are content, we are able to radiate a greater sense of awareness and an overall sense of well being and ease. Our lives are our laboratory! As we encounter hard days, how can we use them to obtain more information about living? I was recently connecting with a friend and we both recounted that we were feeling a sense of heaviness. As we tapped into this heaviness it was an important gauge of awareness. How can we connect to one another if we always have a pretend smile plastered on our faces? Our emotions are visitors informing us of the weather of our mind. If we can see emotions as weather we are able to navigate our lives in an authentic way. A great question to ask yourself: How do I radiate contentment when the landscape of my life is continually changing?
- We are here to empower one another. When I think I know better for you than you know for yourself, I am doing you the biggest dis-service. Be willing to really sit in the midst of your relationships and hear the other sharing. Be willing to be flexible. If you are an advice giver, how are you robbing someone of the opportunity to connect to their own inner wisdom? We all have a rich unique cave of wisdom within us. A great question to ask yourself: How do I empower myself in relationship with others?
- Focus on being in the present moment. The present moment is where the magic is happening. The stories of the past and the anxieties of the future keep us stranded in familiar ruts. Have the willingness instead to compassionately rise up in each moment. In relationship with others if there is a potential to slide back into stories of the past, can you increase your frequency so that it becomes appealing to rise up as well. We can be prisoners of the quick sand in our mind, or create a vista of now that is alive with opportunity.
- We can't drag others kicking and screaming. Sometimes we get so excited about life that we want others to hop on the same bus, drink the same cool-aid, or travel down the same path as us. I know that I have attempted this many times in my life. Sometimes I have met it with great victory and other times with great disappointment. But as I continue to grow I have learned that we must be willing to do our work and as we change, those around us might be curious as well. A great life lesson is, "You can't care more than the other person does about their life." If we are moving in our own lives it is often because we are clear about what we want. Our visions don't have to be perfect but we have to be constantly moving towards what we want.
