Today’s Meditation..Day 6 of the 21- Day Meditation Experience had me once again nodding YES, to what both Oprah and Deepak had to share……
Day 6 – You Deserve More Than Second-Hand Experiences
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.” – Henry David Thoreau
Today’s meditation is about learning to live authentically from your real self. That means your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors arise from within the silence of your own awareness. This is in contrast to experience and behavior that is driven by others’ beliefs, expectations, and demands. That is second-hand experience: the mode of living that is responsible for pressure, frustration, and feeling stuck in life. First-hand experience is living from our true self, where you direct your life from within, and find love, beauty, and joy in every experience you have.
For to long, I lived my life according to someone else’s ideals and ideas of how I should be, what I should be, who I should be. There was no me. I was someone else entirely. I allowed someone else to write my story..to dictate..to brow beat me into an oblivion that I believed. I allowed it to happen and complied to keep the peace…….thankfully, I awakened…….
I Am the Author of my day..of my Now..of my life…….I Am the holder of My Pen! 🖊
I am life’s vitality.
