Good stuff here from Gabe Berman!
There is so much in the world that can pull us down these days for sure. No way to get around that. It exists. Yet, if you “allow” that negativity to “sink” your attitude and bring you down you negate the good that you can bring into your space in this world.
I am not saying that you walk around with your head in the clouds. In fact, true compassion actually brings you more in touch with the sadness, pain, etc. that is there. But, when you choose to not attach to that sadness you are bringing light into that darkness. You can be that positive force for good in that way. Why not be that? Why not allow yourself to feel that pain but NOT let it become who you are? That is a very powerful thing indeed. It is Love. It is Divine….
We all have beliefs that we’re attached to that, when looked at through a skeptical lens, might not fit or work for us any longer. In fact, they might lack truth for us and cause more harm than good now.
Many of us were taught to put ourselves last, and as a consequence we attracted feelings of being unworthy and undeserving. As those feelings lodged within us, we continued to attract more life situations that had us feel more unworthy and not enough.
You must change that thinking…
Taking care of Y-O-U is the best way to be of service to others. By recognizing who you really are you change the energy that you bring into this world. Much like the difference between sunshine on a cloudy day versus that brilliant, warm, invigorating sun that shines when the skies are clear. The sun is still there in both cases though. You must uncover those clouds and let your true light shine!
When you do that you begin to impact others in the best possible way. Shining, positive, and a shower of divine energy to others….
