James Allen once said, “People are anxious to improve their circumstances, but they’re unwilling to improve themselves; therefore, they remain bound.” What a profound statement.
So many times people want to improve their life , experience a loving relationship, more prosperity and all the other bells and whistles that go with what most would consider a more peaceful and enjoyable life. however they normally make one mistake. Most people assume that someone else is responsible for their happiness, nothing could be further from the truth.
Each and every one of us is responsible for our own happiness, no one else. No one can fix our unhappiness except ourselves. the government can’t, our spouse can’t, neither can our friends , relatives or our congressman.It is up to us and us alone.To obtain peace, we have to go inside ourselves and release whatever is blocking our personal power.
We all put up barriers to our happiness and each and every one of us gives it a different name, lack of skills, lack of education, wrong friends, or a vast range of different excuses, however it all boils down to one barrier, forgiveness. Because of the lack of forgiveness, being it unable to forgive others or ourselves, we create a feeling of unworthiness. When we feel unworthy of prosperity or love, it creates a block to doesn’t allow the things and events that would make us happy to come into our lives.
If you don’t believe me, just try it on a small scale, do one small test , say you don’t believe you deserve a hot fudge sundae. Imagine yourself enjoying that hot fudge sundae and think of why you may not deserve it. Once you mentally see a reason why you think you don’t deserve a hot fudge sundae, mentally resolve that issue, whether it be not forgiving someone who has wronged you, or maybe a memory from your past. Maybe someone has said or done something that created a block in your subconscious, something that makes you think you don’t deserve it.
Once you realize you are not responsible for the actions or words of others and what they say or think really has nothing to do with you,it is easier to understand that you really had nothing to do with their reactions, it’s not your fault how they feel about you. So if it isn’t your fault, forgive them and enjoy that hot fudge sundae.
Become the person you want to be, take as big or as small of steps as is comfortable to you, take two steps forward and one backward if needed, but never forget your original goal. Guaranteed, you will start seeing results almost immediately, all your highest dreams probably won’t be suddenly realized , but so what, you have a whole lifetime and maybe some of the people you want in your life have unfinished business before they can enter your realm of existence.
Peace comes from within, from the “God Within”. Drop the judgments, the blame and the anger , this will allow peace to enter your life and you will receive the blessings you want and deserve .
