A Time to Remember Being More is Doing Less


As you bustle about in the busy holiday season, it is easy to fall into the trap of “doing” more, but I want to remind you that in this particular time of year, it is easy to forget the all-important choice about who you choose to BE. Your ego is busy “wanting” and “desiring” all kinds of things- not only for yourself, but for others. It is a parallel observation to note that also while you are trying to recreate who you are by choosing a new way of BEING, your ego is getting distracted by all sorts of things. You can lose sight of the commitment you made to recreate your way of life, by choosing a new way of BEING you. You can stay calm and centered by remembering that you are not your ego. You can find your way out of the need-for-security trap if you will keep remembering that the purpose of your life is self-discovery. Know that you will only find your true self whenever you find the courage to step out of the box with a new BEING choice. Also, just as important, choose to DO less, choose to see the truth of your BEING, and choose to stay centered not during the holiday season, but every day, if you want to live from a place of authenticity. 

How Your Concept of Self Plays out Your Life

imagesWhen you make a choice about who you are going to BE, you are automatically confronted with your ego, which contains all the self-limiting beliefs, thoughts, and feelings you have made about yourself. You’ll find that changing of your point of view is a much easier task if you can think of your ego as an idea come to life—a perception of reality that’s now in charge and being demonstrated as your life. For your ego to survive in and as that perceived reality, your self-concept and your Belief System must remain intact. Ego’s job is to keep that perceived reality intact. Ego’s defense system is, for the ego, a life or death matter. When you try to change your point of view, your ego knows that it must die in order to be reborn into that new consciousness.

One example in how this plays out is in your decision to be rich or poor. If you have been following my blogs, then you know that being poor (or rich) is a state of BEING, a way you choose to filter your perceptions, feelings and thoughts , as opposed to do and have. If you have not chosen to be rich, then there are some possible reasons for choosing to be poor. Let’s take a look at some of them here:

  •         Your self-worth wouldn’t allow it
  •          Rich didn’t fit who you’ve chosen to be
  •          You were afraid that, in trying, you might fail
  •          Being successful might take you out of your box

Very simply put, these ideas you carry about yourself are your concept of yourself, and who you think you are, but the truth is, you are far more than what your mind tells you. In fact, the mind chatter that holds you back comes in two direct forms, self-doubt and what I like to call, B.S., or Belief System. You are bound to confront this part of yourself when you take on transformation. In fact, when you do experience this, it comes as a form of resistance, either in your mind, your gut, your feelings, or your external reality. By bringing gentle self-awareness and acceptance to it, you have a chance to transform your concept of self.  

The Gateway of Gratitude


This time of year comes every November, and many people remember to be grateful, but the real boon lies in remembering gratitude as a daily practice. In fact, it is not just to be embraced for joyful and fulfilling moments; it is also something we can extend in times of sorrow and pain. In our gratitude, we come to understand the expansion of our hearts and hands towards ourselves and others. We become more aware of what we already have and what our present realities hold for us. It is essential to be in the present moment with all that is in order to make any kind of transformation in our lives. We cannot have more of anything until we are truly grateful for all that we have now. It is something beyond the law of attraction that allows our hearts to be filled with this aspect of humankind, and we receive the fruits of our efforts from the grace that lovingly holds gratitude in its arms. Gratitude takes us beyond the grip of fear and into the realm where anything is possible.
