No One, Right Way

(Repost from Tumblr)

For millenia people have been trying to get others to fit into a box they molded. Understand this: THERE IS NO ONE RIGHT WAY FOR ANYONE TO LIVE BECAUSE WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT. We are the same essentially, but made different in many ways. And that’s cool! But know this, anyone who tells you that you “have to do or be this to become perfect” or get “perfect results” is lying to you and trying to make you to their liking. You are yours and yours alone. Your life, journey, and road/path is different than all other 7 billion people on this planet. What’s meant for you is for you and you have every right and reason to live your life and your truth, whether others understand or approve of it or not. 

 Now, if you want to live your best life to the best of your abilities there is a certain set of things that are required of you to do – because they are all in your best interest and lead you to living your best life in this moment. But here’s where it’s different, you are not bound by anything. You are free to do, live, be, learn, grow, move, give, and love at your own pace in your own way. To succeed there is a formula, but it is not a limiting and degrading formula like that of someone who’s trying to get you to be and do what they want you to be and do. This formula guides you and helps you in a loving and caring way and gives you the space you need to achieve greatness your way, in your style.

 There are so many ways for each of us to live, be, explore, and love. We each bring something unique and wonderful and beautiful to this world. We each shine our own lights. We are not bound to the conforming, limiting, and demeaning rules and regulations that we’ve been spoon fed all of our lives. The only thing we are bound by is Love. Love is what we all are, what we are made of, and what we are made from. It connects all things. And last time I checked, Love only required us to show up and do our best. That’s it. Love is that formula, Love encapsulates all those certain things that are required to live, be, and do our best. So just love. 

 When we choose Love we choose greatness. And there is no one, right way to be great. There is no one, right way to Love. 

How To Help Yourself and Others

This is one of the biggest and most important lessons we as humanity need to learn and embody. There are countless ways to be and do wrong, and as history has shown us, belittling and demeaning ourselves for our wrong doings and others for their wrong doings helps nothing and no one. We are humans, we are all going to be wrong, a lot, over the course of our lives.

 We must show each other truth with love, kindness, and understanding. Through these we can move forward, be better, and do better. It takes genuine work to learn from our mistakes and progress. Let us give each other space to do so. No one is going to get everything right, let alone the first time, and no one knows all. We can not except that of one another nor treat others as if this is true. 

 Genuine understanding, kindness, compassion, willingness, communication, and love is how we get through to one another. We must be gentle and firm with one another as the situation/circumstance calls for. We must learn to flow with the lessons that come our way; they will be hard, difficult, stressful, sad, painful, and hurtful, and they will show and teach us what we need to know. 

 Don’t take anything personally and be willing to grow and learn from every experience. As the great Eckhart Tolle said “I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions, and experiences. I am not the content of my life.I am Life. I am the space in which all things happen. I am consciousness. I am the Now. I Am.” And so it is, for us all. We are not held to our experiences, we need only learn and grow from them and help each other along the way.

Break Out

The only rules you must abide by are those of life and there aren’t many of those, being that in this life most anything and everything is possible. You are limited only by yourself. You are not at any point or time in your life obligated to conform or bend to any other persons will than your own. Live your life. Spend each moment you are given the way you wish to. You are the captain of your soul.
