“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” -Lucille Ball
There is something inherently scary about the “unknown.” We all flock towards safety and comfort. But the thing about life is that there is little certainty, and though we think we are in control, it’s really an illusion. We have no control of anything outside of ourselves. But we have total control of our own choices and state of being. If we want to cultivate inner peace and contentment, it’s imperative that we practice having trust and faith in the Divine plan and order of things, knowing we are safe and supported by life fully.
There are two things in life that drive most of what we do and say: fear and love. While we often confuse the two emotions as we are faced with decision-making and forming thought processes, it is imperative to understand the difference and how the events in our life show up as a result of our original intentions.
When we come into life we experience what is called “contrast.” Contrast is simply “differences.” We may call things good or bad, but really they just exist and have no positive or negative conotations; they just are as they are – neutral. Therefore, we make everything subjective and we decide if it is pleasing to us or not. We also determine when we are open to receiving something new in our life.
There are a variety of basic laws of the universe that apply to each and every one of us. Understanding and implementing these can greatly enhance our lives.
