One of the most difficult things we have to go through in this life is having to let go of things. Attachment is carved so deep into our soul that we actually feel like we own the entire universe.
That sense of ownership and competitiveness have been making real damage to our society for quite a long time now.
For example, we believe we own our children. Our sons and daughters are not ours, they are not our property. They have arrived to our life to teach us to be better and to evolve at the same time they receive our guidance and love. But they are independent of us and we need to stop treating them as if we owned their lives.
Another example is when we drive. We have forgotten that we are SHARING the streets with other people, we do not OWN the road, so we don’t need to use avenues, streets, motorways, etc., as if they belonged to us and we were the only ones with the right to use them. We all have the same right of transit.
On the other hand, educating children to be “competitive” is no longer a virtue. We need to remember that a competition implies to win something over others and we no longer need to do that, since we have learnt that there is enough of everything for everybody.
Have you noticed that the new generation of businessmen are forming alliances now instead of trying to destroy their “competitors”?
When you stop trying to beat others and you start to build a better version or yourself, you will see how your creativity increases and that “fear” and anxiety to be “beaten” by others will disappear, making your business more productive and prosperous.
Remember: “We are creators, no competitors”.
If you analyse these limiting concepts from the past, you will see all the damage they have caused in our society for millennia. Don’t you think is a good time to put them behind and continue your evolution?
We are living in an abundant universe, we lack for nothing. It is our ideas and concepts the ones that limit us to achieve and enjoy our present life.
Even if you are going through difficult times right now, you do have many small things to be thankful for and, if you add up all those little things, then you will realise you end up with a huge amount of reasons to feel grateful and happy this very moment. Just train your mind to find the good things in your life right now.
Yes, it is difficult to go against the current, but believe me, it is the most powerful way to reach your happiness. And that is your main goal, remember that, always.
