[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Lay down the excuses!
Seek not outside yourself. For it will fail ACIM
What did I learn today? Brutally honest -You can fool some people some time
but you can never fool yourself! You can tell yourself almost anything to
excuse away your fear. You might actually believe it for a while! But,
there will come a time when the excuse will not be strong enough, or big
enough to camouflage your fear. Eventually what you tell yourself will
begin to sound so weak, so lame, so utterly ridiculous that you will have a
hard time convincing yourself or anyone else that it is true. When that
time comes, don't be defensive. Be willing to face the thing you fear!
When you defend yourself for not taking a particular action, you are
denying the foundation upon which your peace of mind depends upon - Truth!
When you wait or prepare to the point of avoiding what you really want you
say you really want to do, when you know you are afraid but refuse to admit
it, there is no way you can have peace of mind, especially when you insist
on defending the excuses.
So, you may have a great excuse for remaining in a relationship, work
environment, or living arrangement that is not fulfilling, that is not self
honouring. Lay down the excuses, feel the fear, face it and move!
