Hi %$firstname$% -
Why No One Wants Transformation
Isn't it strange, that everyone wants
their life to change for the better, but no one wants to sacrifice the current
reality in order to have it. The first step in having your life be the way
you've always wanted it, is in giving up your attachment to HAVING your life
BE the way it is now.
Most of us are attached
to our lives the way it is now. IF
you are not happy with the way it is now, but
you're hanging on to "the way it is", it's because you are afraid of what life might
be like outside that box!
You're stuck because you are afraid to
let go! In fact, you have a death grip on the status quo.
The only reason anyone doesn't have who and
what they want from life is that they haven't chosen it! Have you chosen to have
the good life? If not, the reason you aren't living the good life is because you
are way to attached to "the way it is". Life could be so sweet outside the box,
but if you're not outside the box, it's because you can't choose out of "not so
sweet" and into "how sweet it is!"
An example of this would be: you can
see a beautiful new reality just on the other side of the river, but you are
afraid to step into the boat that would take you there. You could have it all,
The fact is, the only reason you don't
have what you want it because you haven't chosen it. You haven't chosen it
because you're so attached to not having it! It's a game and in that game, life
takes you nowhere except around in a circle.
Would you like to know why you are so
attached to not having life be that good?
You are stuck in your current reality
because you have an ego that is bound and determined to maintain the status quo.
That is it's job. You want to change your life for the better, but it is your
ego's job to prevent that change in any way that it can. Ego uses fear,
self-doubt and mind chatter to keep you confined in a reality that no longer
serves or satisfies your wants. Your ego is the reason you can't step into the
boat and row yourself across the river to the good life on the other side.
The Means By Which
Your ego is the means by which you get to experience the
reality you created by choosing who you would BE. The problem with wanting to
change that reality, is that your ego won't let you open the door to that new
reality. This on going life dilemma reminds me of a quote by Peter De Vries. He
"The Universe is like a safe
to which there is a combination,
but the combination is locked up in the safe."
Your ego knows that the key to your
real power is locked up in that safe, but it can't let you get to the
combination because what ego fears most, is your discovering just how powerful
you really are. Your ego doesn't want you to know that the power of the Universe
is locked up in your ability to choose who you will BE. Once you have truly
chosen, your ego, like the genie in Aladdin's lamp, must now, provide you with
the experience of the reality of your new BEING choice.
A Fact of Life: You can have
anything you want from life just by choosing to BE the one to whom it belongs!
Life really is that simple! But having
what you want requires a transformation in consciousness and nobody wants to be
transformed. They want what they want, but they resist being transformed to have
