Freedom and Chains Week 8

Thought results in action, if your thought is constructive and harmonious, the results will be good; if your thought is destructive or inharmonious, the results will be evil.

What a statement for me, this past week for me has been challenging my thoughts every second of the day almost and noticing that I create a jail for myself when I insist on thinking my own way all the time. As I began to challenge my thinking and practicing the law of substitution, what I found is that my days become lighter and more productive. I found that I became more sensitive to others miserableness and found it difficult to be around. as Og states Always will I dig for a reason to applaud; never will I scratch for excuses to gossip. when I am tempted to criticize I will bite my tongue. The people I am working with daily like to complain and not so much gossip but are set in their ways of doing things, just as I am, but as I am breaking away from the chains of destruction it is so easy to be chained up.  It is easier to stay chained to mediocrity, its easy to stay the same. I know how to live that life and I know how to control the chaos that I have lived in for the past 6 years. This week I’ve found a new kind of freedom. a freedom where I don’t need to be tied to others thoughts, feelings or behaviours. I only am responsible for me; the truth is, that all that stuff is none of my business. The only business I have, is doing my readings, my blogs, and focus on my DMP. My new self is taping into a life free from others stuff. On November 24th I wrote in my journal, “I don’t care to grow, for my life is pretty good, but as I ‘m growing it feels good. I feel more confident, loving and energized then ever before. My life is going to be what I make it and for the few extra activities I recently have injected into my life they seem to be paying off.

Today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. (Sannskrit)

We always have a choice. The choices we may be faced may not always be the choices we want but we always have a fork in the road and we can take the road less travel or the easy way. I choose the road less traveled.

  1. Great blog, Nikki. I am sure you are echoing the thoughts and struggles of many of us; definitely mine. As we heard from the beginning, this is going to be one of the hardest things we have ever done, BUT SOOO WORTH IT. We’ve got this!! 😉
