It occurred to me the other day as I was talking about unconditional love that the same is true for how we live our life - with conditions or without.
And that the source for most of our pain and suffering comes from not having the conditions we believe we need met for us to live - and be happy, healthy, etc.
This is all part of what the last two podcasts have been about (you can scroll down to find them or go here for the full list).
The next step being, how did that apply to this basic idea I have been swirling about with you on regarding the act of being alive?
What does it mean to BE FULLY ALIVE AND REAL?
How does that feel?
And do we limit the knowing by putting a long list of requirements and conditions before we want to live, can live, can be happy living, or choose to try and be happy living?
Let's be HONEST here.... you know what I mean! Our first impulse is always some form of protecting our ego. Of course I want to live, of course I don't need the world to change for me to be safe and happy, of course, of course, of course...
Then, in the deep recesses of our private mind if we are honest, we feel that tug - well, first I need money and health and a good relationship and a new car and insurance to cover it all. Oh, I also need the global elite to remove themselves from power and the whole world to live as one and be in harmony!
And don't get me started on migration, World War III, and the US presidential race!
So here is something interesting, in looking for 'unconditional life' quotes, all I could find is 'unconditional love.'
Something to ponder on this day for you as you ask this question for your self!
If you aren't really sure what I mean yet when I say this, ask your self these questions:
You get where I am going with all this?
What needs to change IN YOUR LIFE before you can: ________________ fill in the blank. Be happy, be safe, be strong, be healthy, be peaceful, be powerful.
What needs to change that you don't have control over before you can get the version of life you want.
What needs to change or happen before you want to live and be the you that you are meant to be?
The questions themselves require a lot of deep honesty because the surface answer won't be the one that is holding you back from whatever in this life you really want.
But, we are on a journey and this is just one more place to take a moment to rest and reflect so you will know which direction your journey will take you!
Don't forget we are going to talk about the movie "Braveheart" on Friday if you want to prep for that! Have a great day and see you back here tomorrow on the Survival Road!
