Many think it is easy to judge ourselves and others ………….. I reckon there is nothing like going into our “self-reflection” mode from time to time. Unfortunately, the sad truth is, sometimes people are too smart to start.
What is a fear that you have and how has that limited you?
How do you plan to letting that fear go or overcoming it in the coming weeks or months?
What type of action you think is optimal for you right now?
You see, in zen, being present in the moment is being mindful. Being mindful is being attentive and heedful – giving our full attention to what we are doing or achieving. Compassion increases our capacity to care. Thus, the more we care for the happiness of those around us, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes.
“We’re Willing To Feed Birds, Why Not People.” captured my attention recently. Got me stunned and instantly trigger the “self-reflection” button inside me. Suddenly, memories I thought completely forgotten, had not been properly erased or deleted in the past. My brain remembered the “pain” and it worked like a “hard disk” running non-stop scanning and searching those old folders for some time.
If the fear of failing is limiting you from moving forward or living a better quality of life, remember this; “If you don’t fail, you are not growing.” You will not be making progress like most people do. But, regressing ……….. So learning to letting go of your doubts and fears helps.
Meanwhile, have another productive week and keep excelling my friends. !!!
