Hello, again, to you, my friend.
Today I’m talking about spiritual, self-development, business, relationship, family; I’ve got my shit together, look at me. Aren’t I inspirational guru’s!
That sounded bitchy, catty and judgmental. That’s not my intention, but if that’s how it’s interpreted, then there is not a lot I can do about it.
It’s an observation from my level of perception that I’ve made through all the hundreds of books, blogs, courses and coaches that I’ve come in contact with on my journey.
I’m not saying that we can’t look up to people, or take what I call golden nuggets of information that can alter the direction we take in this life.
It’s how we learn, grow and overcome the obstacles of life.
What I’m talking about is, most individuals who are overwhelmed or stuck can’t see the way out of the chaos they are experiencing in their mind and can look to gurus for some help.
Of course, makes sense, if we are screwed up we need help! Damn straight! The issue we have here is that when we look to someone inspirational, someone who has something we want, someone who looks like they have all the answers, then we can get swept away with it and dare I say conned out of our hard-earned money.
I have spent thousands and thousands on my development and don’t begrudge what I’ve spent one bit. It’s made me a better man, father, husband and generally as a human being. I wouldn’t say I was a terrible person to start. Just a young man who took some wrong turns and who had layers of negative thought all piled on top of each other. All my insecurities and general crap had layered over my real self and made me stuck.
By being stuck, I sought peace. And that led me to spend lots and lots of money out of desperation. I’m not here to tell you how to spend money and not here to say that individuals are not worthy of earning a decent living.
Quite the opposite, I’m driven by money and feel much more peace when my bills are all paid, and I have spare cash to enjoy life. Money makes the world go round, and it gives me freedom.
I don’t mind spending money on my development and learning, because I can. If I couldn’t afford it, then I wouldn’t. Thing is I’m much more calculated nowadays on where I spend my money because a fool and his money are easily parted. I guess I’m more calculated because I’m not in desperate need of help. I have been though, so get why others would do the same.
What I have learned is this. I’m nobodies guru, and nobody is mine.
The world can be perceived as a screwed up place. We can choose to be cynical about that, or we can want to be more upbeat and positive about it. I choose to be more loving, calmer and help lift individuals that we cross paths with in life.
We can find inspiration from each other; you don’t need to look at what is perceived to be some guru for that. I’m a firm believer that for every action there’s a reaction. The universe works that way. Whatever you put out is coming back to you. We have low vibrating frequencies that we can resonate on, or we have higher ones. Does that mean the people who are resonating on a higher rate are worthy of some pedestal? No!
What it means is they may have a bit more knowledge than you in a particular area. I’m sure if you pulled your life apart to the guru you are looking up to, you may have more knowledge on another subject than the guru – nobody is perfect!
I’m not sure who wrote this, but I love the quote
“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
As my son’s pediatrician would say;
“Some people are tall; some people are small, everybody’s different.”
He used to say in such a hypnotic way, it just sticks in my mind. Lol – true though!
We all come into this lifetime the same way, and we all go out the same. We are all equal.
Keep learning, be humble and make today a little better than it was yesterday.
Till next time, take care, all the best.
