“Every living thing—animal, human, or plant—experiences that which is called death, with no exception. Spirit, which is who-we-really-are, is Eternal. So what death must be is but a changing of the perspective of that Eternal Spirit. If you are standing in your physical body and consciously connected to that Spirit, then you are Eternal in nature and you need never fear any “endedness,” because, from that perspective, there is none. (You will never cease to be, for you are Eternal Consciousness.)”
Abraham as interpreted by Esther Hicks
“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”
Robert H. Schuller
In Saturday’s blog, I wrote about the number one regret that people who were dying reported to Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse who spent several years caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. That regret? The wish that they’d had the courage to live life true to themselves and not the life others expected of them.
The biggest reason people don’t live true to themselves? Fear. Fear of failure, fear of what others will think, fear that they are less than Who they truly are.
As someone who spent a lot of my life buckled under the weight of that fear, I encourage you with all my being to throw it off.
That fear is a blindfold pulled over our collective eyes. It is not Truth.
The Truth is it is impossible to fail, because there can be no failure where there is learning and growth. And every experience is valuable.
The Truth is what others think does not matter. They do not—and cannot—know your heart. You have to search within to find that, and you are the only one who can know your heart fully.
The Truth is you cannot fail because your Spirit is Eternal. The point of life is living. There is no way to get it wrong.
“Live life true to yourself.” This is the wisdom passed on to you by those who wished they had done things differently.
It means letting go of false beliefs about Who you are, what you are capable of, and what you deserve.
It means letting go of fear that does not serve you.
It means listening to your own heart.
It means having faith in your eternal nature.
Every moment of every day you are creating your life. Each decision either holds you in place or moves you towards the person you want to become—the person you are meant to be.
What is one small thing you can you do today to live life true to yourself? How does that make you feel? How much closer are you to being the person you want to become?
Together we can do it!
