How to Live Your Best Life
Is there a secret to happiness? I can tell you if you're searching for it externally, you'll never find it. Material objects will bring you a fleeting sense of happiness, but true fulfillment comes from within.
There's no magic pill in this world, just a mindset. Loving kindness, releasing resistance, unconditional acceptance, and going with the flow are keys to unlocking this mystery.
There are practical steps too. No one can tell you what's best for you, only you know that. However, if you follow these 4 steps, life will feel easier, more like the gift that it is, rather than something to struggle against.
1). Honor Yourself: Because we are all One, when you honor and respect the Divinity Within, you are not only honoring and respecting others, but all Life on Earth. What happens to you, happens to me. Love yourself, and your love for others will come naturally.
2). Do Good Work: We have 2 choices in life. Every thought, word, action we make is based in either Love or Fear. When we live from our heart and ask "How May I Serve?", life begins to flow us in the direction of our highest good. We no longer struggle upstream or have to control or manipulate outcomes. When we respect Life and cherish each other, it all just flows, without even trying.
3). Forgive the Past: Your experiences molded you into the person you are, but they do not define you. Forgiving someone is not approval of what they did. Rather, you forgive so you can release the burden you've been carrying for years, because you deserve to be free of that heaviness. You forgive yourself for how you continued to abuse yourself long after they left the picture.
4). See the Beauty Everywhere: There are no words to describe the beauty of this Earth, of nature, of our true essence. Western sunsets, birds singing, the gentle sounds of leaves rustling in the wind... we are blessed to be alive, with our Mother Gaia. There is so much beauty in this world, yet we don't stop long enough to breathe deep and appreciate the gentle life force that flows in and around everything. When we feel gratitude for the beauty that surrounds us, life slows down, we become present, and realize how truly lucky we are to be alive. ❤️
