Change the way you think. Create magic in your life!Hello,
I receive a number of questions from readers and those who listen to my podcast each week. So, I thought I would feature a question and my response in this ezine and upcoming issues.
If you have a question, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As you know, my schedule is pretty jam-packed, but I will get back to you. (When I share these questions and my response, your name and email will not appear.)
Question: "I have no direction in my life. I feel very insecure about not only my life, but what my future holds. Any ideas on how I could feel more secure?"
Answer: Your idea of security is no doubt attached to some person, thing or condition. You might say, "If only I had that person in my life" or "If only I had that job or more money then I would feel secure."
This is an illusion. The more you attach yourself to some person, thing or condition the less secure you actually are because that person, thing or condition can change at any moment and no longer be a part of your conditioned world. Then you will be "insecure" again.
The large majority of people strive for security via more money and things, the better job, bigger house or certain people in their lives. Yet, the only thing that they receive from these striving is more insecurity. As Thoreau once said, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation."
What is difficult for many people to understand is that it is okay to be uncertain. It is okay "not to know." When you can allow yourself to be unsure - not demand security and diminish your attachments - then you release the pressure of having to be secure. Through this release, you gain understanding of what you "truly" desire in life. Your needs diminish and your wants slowly evaporate. When this understanding finally takes root, you step away from the masses, and become secure.
Please forward this ezine to others and encourage them to sign up. Help others and you help yourself.
