We show ourselves, and each other, who we truly are through our actions. Someone may say they care but when they only care about themselves, their words are not enough.
And, it takes time to connect with people who truly lift us up. We can put down our values and principles on paper or stone, but the only way to know if they are real is by becoming aware of what we actually practice—how we care, how we trust and how we connect.
The easiest thing to do is to judge someone else. And when someone judges us harshly, we know that they are simply judging themselves. It’s not personal. Although it may seem this way, it usually has nothing to do with us but with the worldview or belief they are holding onto.
This external need to be ‘helpful’ causes a lot of pain because not everyone is broken and not everyone wants help. Again, it’s more of a reflection of what a person would like to receive. When someone says, ‘I’m being helpful,” we can see through their actions of being helpful what they need.
Our fast food culture today fosters the blame game, which has perpetuated and become a feeding frenzy. It has been medically proven that trauma often gets passed from one generation to another, just like DNA. So it is imperative that we stop this insane cycle of blaming.
We can carry trauma from our parents and ancestors and will continue to do so unless we consciously decide to let it go. The wounds run deep, but we didn’t come here to continue the victimhood or martyrdom.
We actually came here to create and orchestrate a new architectural structure and to face the challenges and embrace all the opportunities.
We are imperfect and perfect the way we are; we don’t need to strive for an unrealistic bar of perfection, always trying to be better, falling short and not feeling satisfied with who we are.
Everyone makes mistakes, including our parents. We came equipped with everything we need, and it is up to us to tap into these resources and the lessons we came here to experience.
You can strive for perfection, but make sure you don’t turn whatever you’re creating—whether it’s a relationship, a healthier body, a new business, even a garden—into an unachievable ideal.
Reflect on the purpose of your creation—who it will benefit and the impact it will have on your life or society.
When creating with your imagination, balance your thoughts between perfection and practicality. In other words, if you put too much energy into being perfect, it can often kill your imagination.
When we trust ourselves fully, everything changes. When there is trust, there is no longer energy depleted in questioning motivations, decisions, or actions.
We simply listen to our intuition to guide us in the here and now. And align our words with our actions.
