(who are you beyond your beliefs?)
We are all so hard on ourselves.
We belittle ourselves
untruths disguised as truths.
How easy it seems to believe the worst?
This is especially true in our moments of deepest failure or struggle, fear or uncertainty.
It is within these times that we turn the knife inward and begin to eviscerate and dissect all of the ways in which we are wrong.
It's all just wrong wrong wrong.
And the more we make ourselves and our deeds wrong...
the more we begin to believe that we,
as a whole,
are just wrong.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Except, here's the thing.
We are not our failings or our fumbles.
We are not our struggles or our strife.
We are more than that.
And when we truly look inside...deep inside...we find a peaceful quiet solitude...
shatters all of the myths and mind games that have heretofore been manipulated into belief.
For when we truly listen in this place within,
we are reminded that
we are that
And when we recognize the power that our limiting beliefs have had on our lives...
how often they have
we become free to release that which no longer serves.
We become free to return to a truth that was once familiar...
long ago...when we were young...
before belief took hold
before we were so wrong.
more than our thoughts
more than our beliefs
more than our body
more than our mind.
And we know this inherently within.
Perhaps you recall a moment,
no matter how fleeting,
when you suddenly gave way to
a peace and stillness and presence and connection
that spoke to a bigger truth;
A truth that belied all thought and belief and mind and body.
A truth that spoke of a simple being-ness, if you will.
And notice if, within this place...beyond belief...
with no one looking...
you begin to smile at the truth revealed
