Do you have enough?
Are you enough?
Have you had enough?
Usually these questions are not asked using the word enough. instead, we use the words “a lot”, “everything”, “great”… we always want, want and, want… We start off in the right way! We set important goals. Goals that will fulfil a dream! Then, after some work, we reach our goal. We get to where we wanted to go and, instead of setting new goals, experiencing ourselves in new and exciting ways, we simply think,
This worked out so well, so I will just do more of the same and get more of the same.
How not knowing what our needs are is creating anxiety and is limiting our growth
When we think like this, we have stopped growing… we are not moving forward nor discovering something new and exciting. We have stopped developing ourselves. in other words, we are dying!
We have stopped growing because we are focusing on the past, past success, past goals and we are becoming anxious because we don’t allow ourselves to let go of the past. We are limiting our future self because we are focusing on the past. And then we ask, why am I not reaching my new goals? They are not new, they are the same goals, with a new timeline! Time is the only difference, and time is an illusion (something to write about later).
The need for more comes because our questions are not the 3 questions, I started this post with. Our programmed questions focus on the superlative… And when we focus on BIG and MORE and GREAT and EVERYTHING, we trigger our thirst for more of the same. More BIG and MORE and GREAT and EVERYTHING until there is nothing left.
That is exactly what we are doing to our beautiful planet. We always asked for more… more and more, and more, that even Mother Earth is running out of resources. It is time to stop and say, ENOUGH!
We also do not allow children to discover their “ENOUGHNESS”. This because we always ask and expect more from them. We also give so much, that they don’t know what their “enoughness” is. Not knowing when to stop, to try something new, is what is creating unhappy children. Children who lack motivation and who trust their inner wisdom. This idea of more and more, of not knowing where we are, what we need and constantly moving forward is what is destroying the earth.
Knowing what enough is is to know what you need. We all have different needs and enough has a different meaning for each of us.
Enough doesn’t mean lack, it means exactly what you need and want. It means balance between your thoughts and the reality you are creating!
The fact that we are not in balance, we are trying to manifest what others consider to be successful, what others have as their “enoughness”.
The Virus, the opportunity to see how we hold the idea of “enoughness”
It is like now, with the virus, all that we need to do is to wear masks. Simple right!
Wrong, some people see this as an offense. That their freedom has been taken from them. I wish to say to these people,
“Your freedom ends where mine begins. Living in society, not as a socialist or communist, is just that, respecting each other. So, if you don’t wear a mask and I get sick, you over stepped your freedom and stolen mine.“
So, this is how it needs to be.
a) if you wear a mask you can start going back to a normal life.
b) if you don’t want to wear a mask, then you can choose to stay at home.
You have a choice to do the right think. Just that! No more, no less. Just enough to make the world safe again!
