David explores in the following video the importance of not living by autopilot but from a clear sense of integrity. Are you in integrity with your sacred soul self? Our beliefs often create a barrier to being in our own true integrity. Things happen in our lives that can influence how we think about ourselves.
“Oh I didn’t get that job I must not worthy”
“I’m a woman, I don’t stand a chance.”
“My teachers told me I’m stupid so that must be true.”
These are all examples of outside influences that if we believe can keep us from shining the light of our own greatness. We act from those beliefs in ways that aren’t integrous to our true knowing of who we are as human beings.
Here’s a reframe for a more integrous approach for us to the three examples:
My Job doesn’t define me, I define my own self-worth.
I may be a woman but I am a human being first with gifts just like everyone else.
Having questions or not knowing are fundamental to learning.
But how do we know if we are in Integrity if we haven’t defined what that means to us?
How can we understand when someone else is standing up in their own integrity if we don’t have our own definition?
As human beings, we need to know our own integrity to let the light of our true self shine. We believe the world could use a little more light right now.
Contentment can feel weird at first and yet it’s an essential ingredient for healing. It’s been something we all quest for and yet we “think” ourselves out of contentment. Our nervous systems just aren’t used to it.
Contentment is a state of being where nothing is desired and the richness of the moment and all that’s in it comes totally present and we have the big ahhhhhhhh moment.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
It’s a simple and powerful truth.
What if, when we don’t know there’s “a special knowing” that’s there for us?
Uncertainty is like spring. When a daffodil bulb feels the call of the sun warming the earth, it can’t see the light but it knows it’s there. And through a gesture of faith, it begins its journey to the light.
We are on a sacred journey and have taken each of you with us.
Here’s our report at the midway point. We’ve included a series of photographs for you as there is a wordless beauty that keeps presenting itself.
We’ve traveled just over 1000 miles down into the heart of Chiapas. We have been met with kindness, a little curiosity but overall hospitality. As we write, we are in Palenque. It is the site of an extensive Mayan city abandoned about 1200 years ago.
We were not born to live a mundane existence.
The essence of who we are – pure, clear and strong is life itself.
There is a pressure that comes from the world around us, sometimes even a demand that demands our surrender into a humdrum day-to-day way of being.
When we say yes to that demand, something inside at the heart of our being knows we are stepping out of the rich passionate flow of our life into an ordinariness that may be convenient but costly to our hearts.
