Choose Letting Go over Protecting
True personal growth is about transcending that part of you that’s not OK and needs protection. You must be able to objectively watch your problems instead of being lost in them.
If you protect yourself perfectly, you will never grow. Your constant dialogue inside your head trying to figure out either how to keep things from happening or trying to figure out what just happened is a needless fight with creation.
It’s simply a matter of taking the risk that you’re better off letting go than clinging to your fears and the energy which gets trapped in your body and does not flow through you. When you’re free from the hold the energy has on you, you will be free to experience the joy and expansiveness that exists within you.
So you decide to use life to free yourself. Instead of being bothered, you get into being free.
If you have a lot of fear, you won’t like change. You’ll try to create the world around you that is predictable, controllable, and definable. You try to create the world that doesn’t stimulate your fears. It’s really very simple. That which doesn’t disturb you is okay, and that which does disturb you is not. Your goal is to reverse
this trend every day!
The alternative is to decide not to fight with life. You realize and accept that life is not under your control. Life is continuously changing, and if you’re trying to control it, you’ll never be able to fully live it.
Your inner growth is completely dependent upon the realization that the only way to find peace and contentment is to stop thinking about yourself. You’re ready to grow when you finally realize that the “I” who is always talking inside will never be content. It always has a problem with something.
Once you decide to make the commitment to stop protecting that scared person inside, you will notice a clear decision point at which your growth truly ascends. Start seeing it as a good thing when your world is challenged as an opportunity to let go.
Ascent Today Habit: Practice the realization that the “I” is never content and always has a problem with something. Any time your would challenge its an opportunity to let go and ascend.
