[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Do not go along, to get along
Live from the space of authenticity, not pretense. Do not go along, to get
along. Flex your independence. Autonomy is a good thing. Maxie McCoy
At a meeting on Saturday one of the participants said to me "why don't you
push yourself up and speak more, you have so much more to offer" I listened
to him go on and on about how I am devaluing myself by not speaking out.
I listened to him and responded "I don't have anything to prove to anyone
and that is not why I am here, this is not my show"
"So why are you here?"
It seems to be the question that quite a few people ask me that said
A Course of Miracles says, the ego establishes relationships only to get
To the ego, the mind is private, and only the body can be shared
And so, on this journey I have embraced the concept that the relationships
that I establish to "get something" are based on my ego and the ones which
have been established to share, learn, grow, have fun are the ones which
really contribute to my joy and happiness. Hoarding information and that
feeling of superiority is a sign of fear, of the ego screaming to you to
hold on to what you have before someone takes it away and have an advantage
Life becomes less stressful when you know in your heart that you are doing
your best, that you have nothing to prove to anyone and what is yours is
yours no matter what!
