Is there a “Way” to be?
A way to live our lives today and tomorrow that will enrich both ourselves and all that we do?
Perhaps there is! Here’s something for you to consider, what if there was a way?
“The Way” might have 7 rules. Well not actual rules (I’m rather weary of rules myself) as much as perhaps a relearning of methods or patterns in how we do what we do during the process of living our lives.
The Beginning – A very basic level of understanding (about ourselves) is the beginning.
An attitude of awareness, and acceptance to want to hear and believe how we act/react and why (cause and effect).
Next is Balance. Within you is a ‘fulcrum’. A support, a center point of rest, on which everything (your emotions, thoughts, actions) moves around. “Maintaining yourself in a manner that keeps you balanced is the key.”
Third – is to Simplify, have clarity of thought.
Clearness to focus and concentrate. When life or things become convoluted and complex, it becomes very difficult if not impossible to accomplish that which you have set out to do. Without being clear within yourself you cannot be balanced.
Fourth – Be Open with your actions!. Sharing while listening, Giving while being open to receiving, Needing while being there for others.
Being open in the give and take of life experiences!
Fifth – Acceptance when confronted with things and people that are hurtful, know that there is that which you can not change. Be true to yourself even as you are there for others.
Fullness is sixth, embracing life with large deep breaths and then filling yourself with all that sustains you and life!.
Giving is seventh. To Love Unconditionally is to give freely.
All we are is contained within the above. The more complex, the more convoluted, the more closed, the more secretive and apart from … the more doubt, the more suspicion, the more fear …
The less accepting, the more rejecting … the more empty, the more loneliness…
Go back to the beginning.
Understand your attitude and balance yourself. Remember everything evolves around how you decide to feel about things including yourself.
Cause and effect … your thoughts, your emotions, your actions/reactions swirling around inside you.
Life, nature, you and I, tomorrow, the future …
The Way? Balance!
