Are You Releasing Or Holding On?
Are you seeking a new way and a new day, but feel bound by certain habits, rituals or dogmas? Have you continued to adhere to them even though they add very little to your sense of joy, wonder and growth? Do you feel frustrated or angry because you have diligently adhered to certain routines? You may even admit that you are stuck. So you try harder, work longer with the process.
Still, it has not brought you what you want. Every new day ends up feeling like the same yesterday. What do you feel holds you prisoner in an old dis-empowering day? Teachers, institutions, systems or ideologies? Will you ever discover a new way if you cling to an old one? Exactly who or what quantifies a new way and a new day–you, another or
something else? Is time your prisoner, or have you been your own judge and jailer? Can you liberate yourself, or will it be done through a collaborative effort? Some have never asked themselves these important questions.
They have been taught to believe something bigger than themselves has the upper hand when it comes to how they choose to live their lives. For them, it feels they have no say so.
Sevens questions which seem to require seven different answers, but there is only one. The answer is “maybe” which probably seems inadequate because it sounds more like another question.
However, the word “maybe” is the only answer I can think of for one who has the inborn ability to exercise their free will. And that is to do or not to do anything.
For every limitation you feel stuck with experiencing, you and only you has the power to seek out, initiate and allow change to occur.
A new way, a new day? Maybe.
