Give yourself permission

Let your love flow outward through the universe, To its height, its depth, its broad extent, A limitless love, without hatred or enmity. Then as you stand or walk, Sit or lie down, As long as you are awake, Strive for this with a one-pointed mind; Your life will bring heaven to earth. - Sutta Nipata ...

Meaningful words but many of us don't know how to let their love flow through the universe, we are too busy thinking or holding on to feelings that cause fear, anxiety, depression, guilt, fear, anger, jealousy, and so on. Some of us believe everything happens for a purpose so how do we learn from and heal these painful feelings.

Eleanor Roosevelt said: "No one can make you feel inferior without your permission." So why do we sometimes give others permission to make us feel bad? Maybe we think "they" are better than us. Or more powerful. Or smarter. Or more beautiful!

Today, I want you to take a look around your life and see if there is anyone from whom you want to reclaim your power to feel ... FANTASTIC!

Small steps, reclaim permission for yourself (just for today) to feel good. Give yourself permission to not feel like a victim of others' choices. Give yourself permission to operate from a place of personal power, taking loving care of yourself . Take time to examine the gifts you have been given. Give yourself permission to spend your time in what brings you joy (just for today). Over time you will begin to realize that you know how to fill yourself with love

The more you learn to love yourself and share your love with others, the more your love will flow through the universe. Develop your spiritually because without a spiritual connection you will not be able to give yourself the permissions that you need to feel GREAT.

 I have no structured spiritual belief system, but I imagine a younger wise part of myself . I believe that truth and loving action were what I had as a young child and I strive everyday to reconnect with that innocence and joy. Some people believe that wisdom comes from the older wiser self, I don't, I believe that the older wiser self has found a way to connect to the innocence of the child. As you give yourself permission to not feel bad, you will gradually grow out of the false beliefs that cause you pain.

Boomers stay in touch with their younger selves, seniors stay in touch with their older wiser self. I like the idea of staying young, not growing old, I'm a Boomer not a Senior
