Imagine what life would be like if you lived a day, a week or a month without believing or promoting ONE excuse. What would your life look like?
We have some pretty engrained excuses – many of them that seem real to us. There is a difference between an EXCUSE and a description of your current circumstance. We confused the two. Usually your current circumstances BECOME an excuse and it’s easy to hide behind it because no one can argue with your circumstance. But here at TDL we believe that you are MORE than your circumstance and that you can, through trial, effort and faith, transcend your circumstance. Why? Because you are NOT your circumstance. You are SO much more than that!
You are an Infinite Soul connected to the Infinity of The Divine and for a short while, you are in this body that you inhabit. When you identify with The Divine, with your Source and with your Soul (and not your circumstances) you take the first step in transcending your limitations.
Here are some circumstances that become ingrained excuses:
- I don’t have enough (time, money, connections, creativity, etc.)
- I’m too (old, fat, young, out of date, tired)
- I’m not (smart enough, tall enough, wise enough, brave enough, enough)
There are MANY more, but this is a short list. It might be true that this is your circumstance, but you are NOT your circumstance. And the more you affirm and identify with your circumstance, the more you will create it. Because what we focus on is what expands and becomes real in our lives.
So, what if you began to see your excuses, not as excuses – but as circumstances? And what if you believed that you are more and could transcend your circumstance? What would life be like a day, a week or a month from now? What if you suspended belief and took a risk?
What if you trusted the subtle whispering within you beckoning you out into the unknown realm of your dreams and potential? What if you decided to no longer make your excuses your identity, but instead your circumstance – and then get about the business of changing your circumstance?
Not through painstaking effort, but through prayer, meditation, service, solving other people’s problems, personal growth and making Love the bottom line. What if taking steps out in Faith became the new norm? What if you took total responsibility for your life, right now, as it is? You may not have been fully responsible for what happened to you, but you are now responsible for how you engage with and meet your life circumstances.
You are so much more than you are giving yourself credit to be and you have so much more help and assistance that is yearning to come to your aid, if you but allow it to. Be still. Listen. Identify with the Infinite, make this a new lifelong practice and then get out of your own way.
Can you? What would your life look like if you did?
