I am reading many beautiful thoughts about the calm after the storm. I can only empathize with the hope for a brighter future at an individual, or even a collective level.
What I am more interested in, though, is witnessing more manifestations of self-awareness, that is individuals whose internal security is not depending on their circumstances, who are not constantly giving their power to their fear of the unknown, who have the capacity to be less self-absorbed so that they can carefully observe what is happening around them, and offer support when required. In one word– or maybe more, but who cares—individuals whose subconscious program is their friend!
Many people tend to ask me frequently: “How are you able of keeping such an optimistic outlook on life even in the chaotic times the world has been experiencing for months?”
The answer is quite simple: I reconnected with my intrinsic worth through destroying my numerous limiting beliefs, and coming back to the original Center: The Principles. From where do you think we get our security and sense of worth? From our Center. Because the “Universal Correct Principles” are, by definition, unchangeable and timeless, my internal security is constant and irreversible.
Does this mean I don’t experience anger, frustration, disappointment, sadness, disgust– sometimes even helplessness & hopelessness accompanying my “savior” pattern I finally destroyed? Those feelings have always been triggered for others way more than for myself. Absolutely not.
It only means that my self-awareness & emotional intelligence levels make it possible to see what is going on inside and to be intentional about going through the feelings in order to release them in a healthy way. During the whole process, the optimism rooted to the security remains the mantra; simply because I removed the fear attribute from the equation.
This can be your reality too whenever you decide to pay the price of re-writing your program. The choice is yours, and I will always respect your free will!
With love, Myriam
Myriam, thank you for sharing this lovely story. It is insightful, and a testament to many things including kindness, self-awareness, and being present. So often it is far easier to go through the motions than to really live. I prefer the latter, but I’ve done the former – more times than I care to acknowledge. The lesson, however, is that when you open yourself up to exploration both internally and externally, good things can happen.
Thanks for being who you are, Myriam and for being present in the moment!
Awww I’m in love with this exquisite honesty my dear Laura! Knowing where we are and having the bravery to express it in a transparent way is the most difficult step! You can be proud of yourself!
Thank you for the uplifting words! They made my day 🥰🥰🥰
Myriam, thanks for pointing out the value to self awareness! And how to hold onto an optimistic long view. Looking at what’s happening inside helps to move through it. So that you can grow beyond that moment. For me, that involves prayer that leads to loving actions. For example, I’m sending old fashioned cards with stamps as a way of supporting people I love. Yep, probably the cards sit in isolation for a bit before being opened – and hey, that’s great too!!! Good to have an opening of a card to anticipate 🙂
Thaaaaaaaaanks dear Cynthia for stopping by and for adding this insightful and heartfelt value my friend! Love your way of helping others heal, grieve, or simply feel loved! Stay blessed! 🤗💙🤗
