Taking It Personally

Not taking personally…

What someone says or does…
Can be very challenging…
And seem to cause pain.

 

With friends, relatives, spouses, more so…
With our children.

 

Or in our place of employment.
Situations where ego has been conditioned.
Looking for validation…
Building attachments from insecurities.

 

Circumstances where we want control…
Resisting what actually Is.

 

We do not teach our children...
They are here to Teach us.
Every time anyone triggers me...
They are my Teacher.

 

It is not about what they did...
But why I am being affected.

 

My feelings are my barometer.
If my thoughts are bothering "me"...
I don't feel good.
This tells me there is a lesson to learn.

 

That I am attached to the thought…
My ego is reacting.

 

This is not a bad thing...

 

Number 1...

 

I'm human...
So this is why I'm here...
To have and learn…
To enjoy the experience.

 

The experience of the Divine Gifts…
Of Thought and Feelings.

 

Number 2...

 

That I am Aware of these…
Thoughts and Feelings is so huge.
It is such a game changer...
Even if I am still suffering...

 

Just being Aware means…
I am accessing my True Self.

 

The Perfect Self…
Under all those personal thoughts and insecurities…
The building blocks of ego.
The root of suffering.

 

Children can be greatest source…
Of insecure and fear filled thought...

 

The Illusion of Life "feels"…
The most real through them.
After all...
My thoughts create "my" reality.

 

I really like this Jack Pransky quote:

 

"To realize it's your own creation...
Your own misery is your own creation.
That's pretty humbling.
It changes everything to see that.

 

How seriously can you take yourself…
In light of the fact that you're making it up."

 

I've shared a lot of thought here...
I know you have a lot of your own...
So take what you need…
And disregard the rest.

 

After all...
Everything I just wrote is just words.

 

From my thoughts...
I just made up in my head...
Creating my experience…
My reality.🌬

 

Live in Love and Peace,
Rick Syposh💖🙏
