If it’s not broken don’t mend it!
It seems that many of the mentors these days assume we are broken and therefore try to mend us. Naturally they are not daft and their clever questions and our unprepared answers may lead them to that conclusion especially in some hyped up workshop.
So let’s just look for a moment at the most basic tenet, or in today’s parlance basic program that we inherit at birth. You know, the one that allows us to derive pleasure and joy from as they say’ whatever turns us on’. Which unfortunately is drummed out of us from a very early age unless of course we are blessed with those two rare beings in the Universe – Perfect Parents!
But it doesn’t stop there since when we get to most schools we are assumed to be broken and therefore need mending just like all the rest.
Thankfully there comes a time when we have the great opportunity and relative freedom to do exactly what pleases us. It can happen at any moment … for me as the perennial late developer it happened late. But for you … ?
However the tendency to try to mend each other to be just like themselves seems to be endemic, whether from a religious or a personal perspective, this may lead us to believe that it is the mentors who themselves need mending for in truth there is nothing wrong with you!
So why in all conscience would I try to mend you especially if you are happy.
Your task in life is to choose from all of the options available to make you happy, healthy and joyful. Whatever you do, it is so important for you to be happy. When this happens something miraculous occurs.
Remembering that happiness is a state of consciousness, and since in happiness you have become in sync with your basic program, you are linked in with the corresponding energy that has been waiting in that same aspect of Universal Consciousness to link in with you. When that happens and you maintain that energetic level of thought all good things that make you happy will flow to you.
This does not mean that you have to stick with the same thought the same activity that gives you that joy forever. When something else takes your fancy move on to it and leave the rest behind with no regrets. Move, expand, live and dance your happy dance. Don’t think about anyone else, be happy in yourself. Most of all don’t let your happiness depend on the happiness of someone else!
Be Happy with Hanukah.
