How often does someone know what is best for you?
– You should leave him
– You shouldn’t quit your job
– You will never make it to Hollywood
How often do they tell you how things should be done?
– You should find a nice man who is older and knows what he wants
– You should find a job that pays well and offers good incentives
– Life is not a movie, dreaming is fun but it wont’ get you anywhere
Society itself tells us how things must be done:
– You must go to school
– If you do not have an education you will never be anything
– Life is hard
– You should get a job, get married and have children
– You need to pay your bills in time or you will have bad credit
– The world is flat
– The world is round
– Stay away from foods high in fat
– Fat is good for you sugar is the problem
– Pluto is a planet
– Pluto is only a dwarf planet
My point? Not one person I know has received their Degree of Life. Not one person has completed one life, left it, come back for another and remembered the full process of what happened when they died and how they got back here (see how I cover those who remember past lives here too – I know, I’m good right!)
This means not one person can know with absolute certainty what is right and what is wrong. What we are really here for. What we are meant to be doing. What is the right path for us to walk.
There is only one way of knowing if what you are doing is right and that is to listen to your gut instinct. Feel it in yourself. You know deep down whether something is right for you or wrong for you and you must learn to trust yourself. Sometimes you might be destined to make a mistake so that you learn a valuable lesson and if that is the case, the people around you should support you not tell you ‘I told you so’. They don’t know what is right for you so they cannot tell you. Them feeling victorious that they were right over you about YOUR life shows that they have a lot missing from their own life.
This world is big, it’s huge and fascinating and full of any possibility you can ever imagine. Society encourages us to be part of a flock of sheep, that way we are easier to herd. Be whoever it is you feel you are, be the person that is true to you. If things don’t work out, guess what, you can start from scratch again. A friend of mine wrote a great post the other day and at the end of it he said:
‘I’d rather be at the bottom of my ladder than at the top of someone else’s’
I loved this. This life is YOUR ladder. YOUR mountain, so climb it and don’t apologise to anyone for being true to yourself. There is no right way of living, only a way of living that is true to you. Nearly every great mind was once thought of as crazy, but they carried on doing their thing and ignored the people who hated on them, judged them and laughed at them, and what happened? We remember them and praise them and quote them to this day.
We are all heading off of this planet the same way so let’s try to do everything we can do, for ourselves and for others, before we leave.
Be everything you ever dreamed of Pride!
