Experience of week 20

by terezm

I am carrying on, hanging on and I am so grateful that others are hanging on to me as well! Thank you! It is the power of masterminding, great things to exchange and read. How can we use negative emotions to expand the comfort zone? At first it seemed to be a real challenge. Then as my focus was on this topic I discovered that actually negative emotions may well be a huge opportunity for us to move forward and develop. For example looking back on the past, I tended to feel guilty for the smallest things, let alone real mistakes I had made, then carried them with myself, almost collecting them and I ended up feeling worthless. It took me years to learn to accept myself together with the mistakes and to learn from them and then let them go. Very important! I kept myself tied up by them, I built limitations around myself by them, making my own life harder. It has been another stop on my journey to realise and raise higher awareness about the Law of Forgiveness. Forgiving myself for the past has been hugely freeing, allowing me to be in the present fully, live my life to a fuller extent. Also, since I lived my life tied up, I felt great jealousy and bitterness when I saw others achieving something, especially with the sense of freedom. Until once I was able to be happy for the person. I remember that experience clearly, I was surprised by it. And feeling with the person in their happyness energised me and filled me up with desire. I did not know anything about the Seven Laws of the Mind at the time, but I felt this is the way to go and started consciously feeling desire when reading/hearing about success stories. It makes sense now. It is in my hands and it is my choice. I waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart. Tomorrow lies buried with yesterday and I think of it no more. I live this day as if it is my last. It has made a great difference for me to live in the present, I feel more satisfied and calm knowing I did my best.
