Many of you seem to be happy, yet inside are crying deep tears of sorrow. Many of you are confused, yet go out of your way to pretend to be fully understanding of issues you know nothing about. Why is this?
One reason is that you are afraid that it will be known that you are not perfect. Sadness is considered to be weak; lack of knowledge is considered to be a sign of ignorance, so you put on costumes and masks to hide what is going on inside. You have become so ingrained with these thought forms, that over time, you believe the scenarios you have created.
There is an adage, “What you believe, you will become.” There is much truth in this, for when your emotions are aligned with the scenarios you are role-playing, it becomes your reality.
In order to break through your belief codes, they must be addressed. You will need to go within and to find what you are aligning your truth with. Look for habits you have that make no sense to you. When you consciously become aware of what you think, say and do, you will begin to notice these discrepancies. Once you find one, take a closer look and decide how you wish to react in future similar situations.
For example, whenever a friend gives you a compliment, instead of feeling gratitude and accepting the gift, you make excuses, denying your worthiness. Once you realize you do this, take time to go within and discover why it is that you have a hard time accepting compliments. Role-play how you will accept compliments in the future. When the next incident occurs, practice feeling gratitude and appreciation for what is being given to you and accept the compliment with grace.
