Comparing ourselves…

quotes-about-being-yourself-and-happy-325916603958085665.jpg

Each of us have had a different Path on our Life Experience. We know we are individuals, but we often don’t know how to look at our Self without comparing our Self with others. Most of us have had the notion ingrained in us at an early age that have to be like someone, or better than someone or not like someone. It is almost comical to think how we are told to be an individual but be like this. It almost like telling someone to win a car race but you have to keep the emergency brake on while driving.

Now I am not saying that we should not notice the differences in others around us; that to me is actually a beautiful feature that I look for in everyone I meet. So what if we were to be cognizant of others’ differences without having to put our Self on the scale of better or worse than another’s Self.

I have not mastered the art of not comparing myself, though I continually work on my perspective. Funny, I am about 6’4′ and many say that I am tall. I tell them I am average height and they scoff at me.  I tell them, everyone I know is either taler than me or shorter than me, therefore I am average height 🙂 I also see myself as the same age as each person I talk with which makes it very easy for me to talk with very young children and “adults aka older children”!

how old

We have so many different facets of our own existence and we could compare each one with someone else and this would prove to be a daunting series of tasks, and to what end? Why not let everyone BE whom they are and YOU BE whom you are? You are a beautiful Spirit existing in human form for this current Life Experience. I like what Abraham said about this:

“See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying—through their individual experiences—to find their way back to that calling, back to that Source Energy. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than you would choose, there’s no right or wrong way. In other words, bless them all, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is opening or closing your vortex to your natural state of Well-Being.

If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life. If there was nothing else that you ever came to understand other than just look for things to appreciate, it’s the only tool you would ever need to predominantly hook you up with who you really are. That’s all you’d need.”

Learning to live with less comparisons and letting others BE can allow us to be happy with “being me.”

Why Not Smile? :)

My goal each morning is to see how many people I can make smile today!

Our Life Experience is a series of Present Moments. They are not necessarily good or bad, right or wrong, but rather just are what we see them as. A key that I have found is that we don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are. So it seems that it takes about the same amount of energy and intention in any Present Moment to be in a “good mood” as it does to be in a “bad mood.” Since Life is a sum of our choices, we have the ability and responsibility to make a decision as to what we want To Be.

Making a choice To Be Happy does not mean that you ignore your surroundings, family and friends, or your present Life Situation. What we can do is decide to be what we want to see which will then influence what we look at in that moment. If we pay attention, we will often see that our world is really just a reflection of our own inner thoughts expressing themselves in the persons and things we attract from said thoughts. I tell people that is began my Awakening, I would get up each morning and apply a thick balm of “madness repellent.” As I became better at managing my thoughts, I found that now I can use a light spritz of the repellent as I attract what I AM.

As we accept responsibility for all of our choices; mood, food, music, news, conversations and activities or lack thereof; we remove the victim mentality and restore our power to be what we intend to be. Our happiness is in our choice of thoughts, not what someone else thinks. This gives us the freedom to improve our Life Experience at each Present Moment knowing that there is a Lesson to be gleaned from each Present Moment; and that depends on what we think we are Being. So why not smile, think thoughts that make you feel good and then face the present moment?

Your Choice is Your Freedom

2013-12-25 13.21.08

We have probably heard that when we blame someone or something, we give that someone our power or that something power over us. Each of us are on Our Path, we grow, we learn, we awaken. We see our Life Experience and we have thoughts, feelings and emotions about where we are and what we are. We can question how we got here and why we are here. In all of our dealings on our Path, we have choices. We choose what we want to believe created the world we live in, we choose whom we want to believe is The Creator, The Universe, God, you can use what name you are familiar with as there are many names used.

One thing that keeps Us apart is division. Sounds simple, yes? On one level, when we see ourselves as separate from our Source, we are creating a division. We then see a division between all the things that the Source has made. So if we now blame The Source for our Life Experience, we are relinquishing our power AND responsibility for where we are.

Going back to our ability to choose, well let’s go all the way back to our “beginning.” When we prescribe to the idea that we chose to be here, we chose our parents, we chose this Life Experience; it was so we could grow, then awaken to our knowledge of Self and then influence our world. WE ARE connected to The Source,  as we are the source, the universe. If we stop talking about The Source in third person and start living all the ancient texts and scriptures as say an autobiography, we regain our power and relinquish the separateness of all that is. The Universe is Love, Peace, Happiness and One. It is The Source of everything.

When we choose to BE Love, Peace and Happiness by thinking, saying and then being – “I Am Love,” we are then being The Universe. This choice gives us the freedom to know that we create our world, we have the power to influence what it will be. This is choosing to take responsibility for our Life Experience, no more blaming, now just living in our power to create our world.
