Daily Nugget #125
maybe the grass really IS greener?!
if we can get around our minds
around our beliefs
around the filter of our experiences
the grass really IS greener on the other side.
it’s greener on the other side of our current awareness
there are flowers growing
on the other side of what we think is possible.
when all illusion fades away.
it’s not only greener
our judging eyes tend to see what we feel we DON’T have.
we see what we perceive as the perfect lawn elsewhere
(grow food, not lawns, by the way)
the perfect life
or the perfect…..
the truth is
the situation that we see with our eyes
may NOT feel perfect to those who live it.
we never have a freaking clue
what really goes on behind the scenes.
we all have a mask
we all have a version of ourselves
that we ‘show’ to the world.
not even be close to the real version of ourselves.
this does not always mean that the ‘mask’ is not authentic.
it just may be different from what we experience on the inside.
i am going to throw out a few challenges for you this week.
this week seems to be all about challenges and in order to grow, we have to explore new terrain.
1. move thru your day and practice seeing things for what they really are.
attempt to soften or even eliminate your judgment. practice noticing when you ARE judging.
you will start to notice that pretty much everything is a judgment
NOT EVEN REAL!!
2. ask a few people how they perceive you and your life.
see if it matches up with how you feel on the inside.
3. ponder this:
i have created ~either consciously or un-consciously~ everything that is in my life right now.
if i think the grass is greener on the other side, i simply need to remove my goggles of limitation
my goggles of illusion
i will see that the grass
EVERYWHERE I LOOK.
not just on the other side,
but on my side too.
if i want to grow ‘better grass’ (ha!)
it takes love. trust. and nourishment.
it takes allowing yourself to dream up
whatever your heart desires
know that you deserve it!
