Daily Dose for the Soul

“Eternity is not the hereafter, this is it. If you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere” ~ Joseph Campbell.

Say out loud :”I’m not from here”. Let the meaning of the words be clear to you. The meaning is that you are in this world, but not of this world. You’ve been taught that who you are is a body with your name, made up of molecules, bones, tissue, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen. You know yourself as the person with your particular name, and you identify yourself as the person with the possessions and achievements that you’ve accumulated. This self also possesses some terrifying information. It knows that if it’s lucky, it’s destines to grow old, get sick, and lose everything that it’s grown to love. Then it will die. This is a shortened version of what the world has offered you, which probably leaves you mystified and flabbergasted at the absurdity of this we call life. Into this bleak picture, which inspires fear and even terror, know that you needn’t subscribe to the idea that you are only this collection of bones and tissues, destined to be annihilated in an aging process.

    I appreciate this reminder. It took me a while to understand and accept this concept. Especially because it was against my programming, my beliefs. Rewriting beliefs is one of the hardest tasks we can do. I now know I’m but a visitor in this beautiful journey, that heaven and he’ll is a state of mind, here and now. We are spiritual beings having this experience

      Change is difficult. We can’t just think ourselves out of feelings of low self-esteem, depression or lack of courage. The subconscious programming of our childhood holds us back. No matter how much we try to consciously make changes we somewhat never seem to achieve what we want.

      Due to our past childhood programming, our belief systems become distorted. We need to re-wire our brain into believing that we are capable and competent. That we can overcome our limitations.

        True. It becomes frustrating when you know what you need to do but still can’t. Forcing one to relearn other values like patience and persistence. Rebuild on hope, faith and consistent inspired action. It’s a lot of work this journey of self growth. But if we enjoy it, it becomes bearable.
