“We have a way of LIFE and LIFE has a way with us!”
We are not a people of submission really, we haven’t been that way for many generations, now. We can move almost anything at the very mention of it… closer to our comfort zone. We move everything around for one purpose, to create “a way of life” that moves us to a place of rest… we call “Achievement”.
Achievement, a social talking point. Has pretty clear parameter “COMPARISON”. We can only count our Achievements when, we have someone who has “more” or “less” or “similar”. Personally, we pretty unknowingly at first, then in due course of time, we begin to motivate ourselves to a new high/height by finding more ambitious comparisons to measure our own “way of life” to rate our achievements. More like a game, “who is leading and how can we get there?
Comparison, is born from our need to have a fitting “way of life” that is personally and socially acceptable. We push ourselves, our children, our relationships to match the “EXPECTATIONS” of the environment in which we “wish to be”. Here’s the catch 22 which must’ve been the source for “the grass is always greener on the other side”. Since most of us, spend so much time in looking at the greener expanse of “the other side”, we forget to water the grass on our side with much needed Gratitude!! If we only took the opportunity to communicate with “the other side”, we’d come to understand, that we’re the envy in their view
Expectation, is the follow through of “thought”. Interestingly, expectations are silent till it is triggered by verbal affirmations. Well, it can be as simple as making a list of “things to do” in order to A . Once expressed in any form, they begin to magnetise your attention consciously to whether or not you’ve achieved. The proverbial beginning of COMPARISON!!
So, lost are we in this cycle… of Achieve, Compare, Expect… that we don’t realise, we’re moving in a CIRCLE. No matter which point we are at… we begin again… EXPECTING, ACHIEVING, COMPARING. We could begin with COMPARE, EXPECT and ACHIEVE!! Each order… creates a brand new experience!!
Life… has a way with us… it does!! Till we make a new choice!! Which could be… look out for the next post… knowing the channel… my understanding is… it will be the Gratitude Channel
