The Opposite Of

opposite

Life often gets measured out into two parts: either you fit into the expectations of others, or you rebel to make your own mold.

The problem with this is that, in rebelling, we aren’t being who we truly might want or hope to be … we are being the OPPOSITE of what others want us to be.  Is being the opposite of someone else’s machinations REALLY the person that you long and hope to be?

Hell no!

This is how, all to often, someone looks back on their life and says,

“How did I get here?  How did I become this person?”

We spend so much of our lives basically doing one or the other of these extremes that we miss the center completely … the center is who YOU really are.  Your True Self.

You become that person when you are no longer running this way or that … forcing … pushing against.  These things are all reactions.  When you are fighting against something, or someone, you are not being your True Self … you are being the person who is knee-jerk reacting to that person or event.

There is no need for fighting.  There is no need for fear.  Rather than reacting to these things … STOP!

Take the time to go within.  Connect with your Creator, and receive Love.  Acknowledge what is happening, accept that it is happening, and just LET GO of it … of trying to dictate your will.  When you let go, you step out of that mold … the Opposite Of  mold … and can then move forward as who you really are.

There will be just as many people who don’t like this as when your were being the Opposite Of … there probably will be more.  It doesn’t matter though … you accept it, and let go of it, and continue to move forward as your True Self.  They will hate this because you are no longer reacting to them … even if you weren’t doing what they wanted, at least you were giving them something by reacting.  Now they don’t get anything from you … and they will hate that, so they will provoke you even more.

As long as you keep following those same steps though?  You will have freedom … it won’t come overnight.  It actually takes quite a while because you have built up SO many habits, and undoing habits takes some work.  It’s really pretty simple though, if you just stick with it …

Acknowledge the problem … accept it for what it is … stop trying to change it or fight it … and just let go … then move forward and begin the work of being your True Self.  It’s still work … but it’s happy work … because it’s who you really ARE! 🙂

Peace and Love.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
