Be yourself ...

Ponderings

We all want to be accepted for who we really are.
You do not have to be anything but yourself ... only change what you do not like about yourself, on doing so this will enhance your life. Everyone is a unique being. So be true to yourself and be yourself. Those who do not accept you for who you are ... Let go.

We can hurt our self by listening to the talking voice inside our mind, which can distort the real truth from us. Distortion can lead you to loosing your freedom.
Your feelings are real ... what we perceive causes emotions. Emotions causes reactions which is the effect. Thus, we make judgements upon our self and on others from what we believe.
Our judgments can be of hate, jealousy and selfishness.

Distortions we create in our mind ... which we believe to be true ... And are not, and thus, takes our freedom away from us.
We can abuse our self as much others can ... But even in the case of others abusing us in whatever way it is within the situation ... We can still turn that round should we choose to ignore it ... And instead believe in our self ... Faith and love. Forgiveness plays a huge part in healing and allowing clarity to enter our thoughts.

There seems to be a whole knock on effect when we choose to listen to lies about our self. If we believe them ... We become them. We can listen to people attentively ... but, we can choose not to believe what people say. If we allow it to seep into our minds ... And distort our dream ... We are then filled with emotions.
You will come across daily valid nourishment for you ... A gift ... If you are aware of it ... That you can choose to feed your soul. Valid nourishment will enhance your life ... Lies will not.
You can make that choice ... For you will know that truth just is.

I have chosen Love as an example ... It is here where we judge our self more. It is here where we constantly create more pain.



Every time I love, my heart is broken. This is not true, because nobody can break your heart if you love yourself. If your heart was broken in the past, you broke it with the lies you believed about love. Love makes you strong; selfishness makes you weak. Love doesn't hurt. What hurts is the fear, selfishness, and control that come from the lies you believe in. If you no longer believe in lies, automatically love starts coming out of you.
Emotional pain is a symptom of being abused; the pain is letting you know that you have to do something to stop the abuse. The emotions are the most important part of our dream because they are telling you how you are doing in your life. By following your emotions, you can change your circumstances.
Extract above by Don Miguel Ruiz The Voice of Knowledge
Just as in Spring new growth reaching out towards the light ... Choose to be free and grow towards love and BE ... BE YOURSELF
Quotes
Not to be able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don't realize this because almost everyone is suffering from it, so it is considered normal. This incessant mental noise prevents you from finding that realm of inner stillness that is inseparable from Being.
Eckhart Tolle
Your seed has been covered with so many layers of culture, etiquitte, education, religion, country, that you have completely forgotten that you are here to grow, that you have become a lush green bush full of flowers, fragrance, dancing in the wind and in the rain and in the sun.
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
Favourite one!
be the change you want to see
Ghandi

well said!

blogging, to a certain extent, i think has helped a lot of people to be what they want to be! maybe a compromise or a catharsis or just a channel for anonymous self expression! it could be a small beginning of a great one!

hugs!!

A wonderful and thought-provoking post Trinitystar...one that many need to read...it takes great courage and stamina to bring every experience to the light and inquire into its real motivation but oh the results when one does that!
I love Ghandi's quote too - it says it all.

hotlove said...

You've got a way with me
Somehow you got me to believe
In everything that I could be
I've gotta say-you really got a way
You've got a way it seems
You gave me faith to find my dreams
You'll never know just what that means
Can't you see... you got a way with me

It's in the way you want me
It's in the way you hold me
The way you show me just what love's made of
It's in the way we make love

You've got a way with words
You get me smiling even when it hurts
There's no way to measure what your love is worth
I can't believe the way you get through to me

It's in the way you want me
It's in the way you hold me
The way you show me just what love's made of
It's in the way we make love

Oh, how I adore you
Like no one before you
I love you just the way you are

It's in the way you want me
It's in the way you hold me
The way you show me just what love's made of
It's in the way we make love

It's just the way you are

Janice,

Of course it is all quite easy to say ... it is the mastering of it all. When we master the not listening to the constant babble ... we are freeing our self more and more.
Lovely to see you here.
hugs. :o)
Ghandis quote is my favourite.

A lot to think about -- well written.

floots said...

such simple and valid advice
but not a lot of people even try
thank you

Rob said...

Lots of fine ideas here. Thank you for reminding me ....one cannot be reminded of these truths too often as it's too easy to overlook them.

QUASAR9 said...

Yeah Ghandi one of my all time favourites too

But I do like
Choose to be free and grow towards love and BE ... BE YOURSELF

Funny though, but it is true
When we love, you'd think love would be returned (for more than just a day, a little while or a few years) -
But we only hurt because of 'our' disappointment.

I often wonder if we should spend more time choosing who to love and who we love ...
rather than in seeking love, falling in love with the falling in love, falling in love with who we imagine (or would like) the other person to BE ...
and they can only be who they are
They cannot be who or what we want them to be!

trinitystar said...

Quasar, That is so true. We cannot change people ... they have to BE just as much we have to BE ... themselves.
I guess that is why there are so many problems in romances ... because of expectations of other and as you say ... one becomes dissappointed if they are not as we hoped they would be.
Hugs for you. :o)

Hi Trinitystar!
Woow! There is soo beautiful here!
Thank you for this post. Very valuable thoughts.
"Forgiveness plays a huge part in healing and allowing clarity to enter our thoughts" - true words.
Be yourself- without forgiveness we are a different person. We have many blockades.
Be happy!

Pat Paulk said...
