People who let themself go, by either overeating, drugs or alcohol
and ignoring their grooming and basic health needs are voicing
anger toward themselves in a negative way. By repeating
this positive affirmation, a person begins to acknowledge the truth
that his or her life has a meaning and is beautiful.
Psychologists often say people who are controlling were not given
enough choices as children. People who need to take control
experience unnecessary stress. By letting go of control, a person
releases the stress and weighty responsibilities. When a person unclenches
their hands to let go of control, they are essentially opening up
their hands in a gesture of trust to receive peace.
When a person lives in the past, they are typically thinking about all the mistakes they made. Someone who lives in the future is simply worrying about what may or may not happen. By living in the moment, a human being can truly live in the truth that is now.
People think it's a sign of weakness to ask for help. Some think they
have to be completely independent and self-sufficient as part of living.
In the spiritual world, no one lives a life that is independent from others.
The tapestry of life involves hundreds and thousands of connections
between people. One person may smile at a stranger, who then feels
inspired to donate money to a charity. The circle of giving and
sharing continues on.
Instead of worrying about running out of a time, an evolved soul knows that there is a time for everything. Each soul has been given an allotted amount of time on earth. Each person has enough time to fulfill his or her purpose in this life. By repeating this positive affirmation, a stressed-out person will learn to relax and let his or her life flow more easily.
Being wise is not the same thing as being intelligent or witty. Some men and women are often called "wise old souls," but anyone can become wise. Wise people aren't impetuous. They use reason and rationality as well as their intuition to make choices each day. People who use sound judgment often avoid heartache and pain that isn't constructive as they walk on their paths.
Enlightened souls know that wise people forgive themselves and others as well as give thanks for the blessings of this life. People who get in the habit of being grateful for all that they have and will have in the future are more likely to receive greater blessings in the future. People who think they are unfortunate can start by being thankful for the small things.
