Uncovering the real Self
--by terre, posted Mar 23, 2015
Through actions and mis-actions I began to learn to listen to my heart and to follow it in my decision-making and activities. In the 1960s and 1970s I was an activist against many things: racism, the Vietnam War, sexism, nuclear power... This work was endless and exhausting.
I was being true to myself at great personal cost. I reached a point when I could do no more (age, health, economics). When I let go of being against so much, I found all that I am FOR.
My energy has increased, I am happier. I am turning every "against" belief into something I am for and focusing on change for the better. I feel more true to myself than ever before. And I have immense gratitude for that.
This morning, i was planning to reprimand a co-worker but was feeling bad about doing it. After reading your piece, iâ€™m going to educate him on the proper procedure instead.
Iâ€™ve changed my thinking from being against people breaking rules to being for educating others on the rules and their purpose.
