Walk the path the universe laid out for you. Stay focused. Stay humble. Stay determined. Trust your body. Trust your intuition. Trust your decisions. Trust your intelligence. Respect your own boundaries. Don’t lie to yourself or to anyone else.
These are all the things that I find very hard to do. Yet, everytime I do them, they set me back on track to being my best self to MYSELF.
Our relationship with ourselves is the foundation of all our relationships; how we treat ourselves is how we treat everyone and everything outside of ourselves. Moreover, how we treat ourselves is how we allow others to treat us.
So, the best way to shift our life’s trajectory is to make the change at the core of “how” we are with ourselves. Everything else adjusts accordingly.
Before you relate to the world, relate to your security. Otherwise, you will create an insecure world around you. Relate to yourself, before you eat, shower, speak a word…relate with yourself.
Your relationship with your food, body, and everyone else will suffer if you relate with it as an insecure person. So, first thing when you wake up, serve yourself a dose of your own security. Then serve others.
Otherwise, you’ll be giving others your insecurity. You’ll pass on to them your fears and doubts. You’ll inject it into the food you touch, your kids, your job, your dog, your cat, etc.
Your security is not your money, cars, clothes, social status, etc. It is nothing that can be lost. Anything that can be lost simply CANNOT give you security. So, your security MUST come from something that doesn’t change.
It’s beyond life and death. It is beyond high and low. It’s beyond near and far. IT IS THE YOU WITHIN YOU.
Connect with yourself!
Don’t worry about detaching yourself from things. Don’t worry about liberating yourself. The more you try, the more you’ll feel attached. All that is fruitless. There is a faster way and it works.
Get honest with yourself. Earnestly commit yourself to your honesty. As you get honest, you will learn, you will understand. Understanding will do whatever needs to be done, because when you know better you do better. If your understanding is at level 1, you cannot expect level 10 results.
It’s not about age or formal education either. Understanding depends on only understanding. There are a lot of educated elites who are completely idiots. There are a lot of illiterates who are wise sages.
Knowledge of self will teach you not only about yourself but every other person. Your heart will teach you about other’s hearts. Most importantly, self study will raise you emotionally and vibrationally. Whatever your parenting left behind you can raise.
You won’t need to depend on someone else. Your security will be within you. Where it should be. It won’t change according to your social, financial, or marital status. You will be a steady human being.
That’s real self-confidence. It’s not dependent on how others see you. It’s not even dependent on how you see yourself. It’s not dependent on anything that can change. It is regardless of anything. It’s unwavering because it’s independent of all, even the self.
