Being Happy

If I were to ask you if you were happy, you would probably say, "Yes, mostly." After all, you are doing OK. You've built a life that accommodates your needs and doesn't push you where you don't want to go. You've made compromises to get to where you are, and challenging those compromises means upsetting the apple cart and you're reluctant to do that. The word is - accommodation.

The Ironies of Life

There are several important ironies in the process of life. The FIRST IRONY is that in this moment you cannot be any different than you are. Beliefs do not change precipitously. They must be chipped away. You came to your beliefs through a good deal of pain and struggle, and you’re not going to just toss them over on a whim. Controlling the pace of change is also a shock-dampening mechanism, as a good deal of change at once can be overwhelming.

Feeling Worthy

Many people struggle with feelings of unworthiness or not feeling lovable. Perhaps you are one of them. Life, particularly your childhood, gave you the message that something was wrong with you. And because of the nature of the parent/child relationship, children will accept this judgement of “inadequacy” as real. They do not, perhaps they cannot, question it.

Am I Worthy?

I frequently hear things like, “I don’t feel lovable,” “I don’t feel good enough” and the classic, “I don’t feel worthy.” I would imagine you have had similar thoughts. It is part of the human condition.

The Ego – Do You Need It?

Remember the training wheels on your bicycle? They helped you get over the rough patches until you learned the skills of bike riding. The ego is like that. Until you get over the rough spots of learning to live from compassion, you need your ego. It gets you through situations that would otherwise be overwhelming. Like the training wheels on your bike, the ego keeps you from running amok.

Doing And Being

If I “be,” I allow. “Being” says that I trust The Universe and can let go, knowing that whatever comes is for my highest good. I may not like what happens, but I know that The Universe is working on my behalf. We call this “faith”.
