Let Go of Your False Beliefs!!

Have you ever stopped to think how many of your core beliefs, the ones you operate from on a deep unconscious level, are truly false?  Maybe the beliefs were instilled in you through the functioning of your family unit.  Maybe the beliefs were instilled in you through your own perceptions of people and events.

Examples of False Beliefs:
1.  "We are responsible for other peoples' happiness"---Totally False.  Every one of us is responsible for our own happiness.  Our internal happiness, or state of being at peace, is Not dependent on other people.  And we are Not responsible for others' state of being.  Striving for happiness and peace is an "inside job".

2.  "We can control other people"---Totally False.  Every one of us has our Own path to travel.  It is not up to us to try to manipulate, control or change other people.  It is a waste of energy and is sure to backfire with negative consequences.  I love the phrase "Live and Let Live", so short yet so powerful.  Live your own life to the fullest!  Likewise, allow others to live their own lives, to be themselves, and even to suffer their own consequences in order to grow.  It is not our job to "rescue" others from their own destructive behaviour. 

3.  "We are not good enough"---Totally False.  Every one of us is a divine creation, created in the image of God.  We are divine luster.  We just become "blind" to seeing our luster as a result of people and society conveying the message that we are not good enough. 
Marketing geniuses utilize this tactic at every turn--"if you buy our newest latest coolest expensive gadget then you too will be cool...don't be left behind and be "less than", they tell us in very covert messages.  People who are close to us can also convey this message, that we are not good enough in their eyes-- if only we would change to suit them.  We may be told directly or it may be the disapproving "look" that is given to us.

We are perfectly imperfect human beings. 

Let Go of those false beliefs, Free yourself from them!!
