Why do we do things that don’t work?
Why do we do things that hurt ourselves?
Why do we inhale poisons into our lungs?
Why do we eat poisonous foods everyday?
Why do we drink poisons for sport?
Why are we poisoning the earth?
Why do we hide the truth?
These just a few of the questions that I ask myself on a regular basis. There are so many aspects of our civilized society that just don’t make sense and don’t work.
This is apparent in the federal, state, and local governments. It is also the case on a personal level. Most of us do things regularly that don’t work.
We do things that don’t move our lives forward, instead we do things that hold us back or slow us down.
I want to know why and how has this become the norm. Why is it that we find the best thing to do the hardest thing to do? We have so many of us chosen to live our lives from our lowest levels of awareness and consciousness?
Why is it that we have such a hard time loving others?
The answer is simple, so simple that you might not believe it.
There is one thing at the root of all troubles and issues, lack of love, Mostly lack of self-love.
No love is sustainable without self-love.
Self-love is the foundation for loving others and the world.
When you love yourself, you won’t do things to hurt yourself.
We love the things we love and we hurt the things that scare us.
Here are a few tips to make your life work better
1.Take some time to really love yourself. Start by being grateful for every little thing in your life, including the things you don’t like.
2.Stop judging and assessing yourself and others, Judgment destroys love. There is no right or wrong, there just is. Judgment deems it right or wrong.
3.Trust yourself and trust others. The world isn’t a scary place. Be open to life.
4.Desire love and happiness for everyone else. When you actually put forth effort to generate love and happiness for others, than you will experience it.
Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all. When you can love yourself, you can love others. When you are loving others, others will love you. When you’re surrounded by love inside and out, you won’t do things that don’t work.
So you should go and love yourself?
Hope in the Good
Hope is a powerful thing. Hope can take you to your promise land or an all exclusive trip through hell.
To hope is to believe in the possibility of something you really want. You don’t hope for things that you don’t want badly. This is a good thing until your hoping for something not possible at that moment in time. That’s hoping for something bad to become good.
Hoping for a bad relationship to become good without 100% commitment from both parties, is a pip dream.
When you hope for something that just isn’t possible, you will loose yourself. You will keep stretching yourself because of your hope. You will allow your boundaries to be crossed believing each time, “maybe this will be the thing that makes the difference”.
You will hope until one day you look up and not realize how you managed to be in the situation you are in. You then ask yourself the question that has started many people down the path to Adulthood. “What The Fuck Am I doing?”
In that moment you realize that your hope has turned to daydreaming. You have convinced yourself that what you want is possible, despite the odds and the large amount of evidence to the contrary.
Everybody plays a fool sometime, there’s no exception to the rule.
When this happens to you, just own it with pride.
There is no pull for personal development when blaming others.
Get your power back by taking 100% responsibility for the results of every situation in your life.
Then and only then will you be able to truly overcome unfavorable experiences.
Keep hope alive, just don’t be blinded by it. Hope in the Good
Trust your intuition, do the most good and be true to yourself.
Tired of getting beat up by love?
Then let it go. Consider it a Love TKO.
Those are the words of Teddy Pendergrass. No truer words were ever spoken about relationships gone bad. “Let it Go”. Take the ass whopping and keep it moving. Don’t hang around and keep taking the beatings. If you do, then maybe your more broken the person committing the abuse.
No one would attempt to drive a car with three flat tires, because they know that such a car wouldn’t go anywhere. Yet many people try to drive a relationship that has three, something four flat tires.
A relationship that is totally broken down and going nowhere. When all the air and all of the love has been let out of the relationship, it will be flat lined, dead,then its time to scrap it.
There are some cases that might be worth saving and other that should be exited with the speed of a gazelle running for it’s life. Love isn’t supposed to be painful. People don’t have to hurt each other in the name of love, that is a choice that is consciously made.
Considering that there are so many ways to love someone in moments of stress and strife, resorting to abuse is the cowardly way. Abuse of any form is the lowest form of communication, it’ barbaric and in humane. Physical abuse is the worst of all.
If your being knocked out by love, that isn’t love, that’s something else and you are calling it love. Love don’t love nobody and love don’t hurt nobody.
Don’t blame love for your bad judgement.
Kill Your Past Before It Kills You
What would happen if you drove you car and spent most of that time looking in the rear view mirror?
First of all it would take you a long time to get where your going. You wouldn’t be able to move very fast either. Secondly you there is a high probability that you would constantly have accidents.
