I found believe in my inner quality was a challenging thing to do. I have given permission for others to determine my quality, purpose, and value. I even allowed others to judge my existence in this world.
This is how I used to value myself. No matter how many people told me that’s not the case, I couldn’t allow myself to give into what they’ve told me. I knew there is a reason I still exist in this world but I didn’t value myself.
I remember those days I wasn’t really living my life. I wasn’t enjoying every moment. I was living without a purpose in life. It was dark and dull days. Everything was so vague, my world was coloured in grey. I pretended for a long time I do have a purpose in my life but the truth is I am not.
What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside you.Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I allowed myself to live my life, as how I want to live my everyday life, everything turned around. My immediate environment changed to vibrant ones. As my immediate environment changes, distant world changed as well. They started to have vivid colours. The world I can see is not covered in grey anymore. The actual world is very colourful. It is shining and sparkling with joy of own existence.
Gradually, I felt I can do more in my life. I might be still living my everyday life as I used to be but now I have purpose and meaning in my life. My everyday is not so dull anymore. I now value myself.
When we change, the world changes.
The key to all changes is in our inner transformation – a change of our hearts and minds.
This is human revolution.
We all have the power to change.
When we realise this truth, we can bring forth that power anywhere, anytime, and in any situation.Daisaku Ikeda
Changing my mindset wasn’t easy but allowing my heart to lead was harder. I had to release my heart, trust it, allowing it to lead without my fear to limit its ability. For me, this is to center my heart. I found I am standing firm on my feet when I allowed my heart to lead my life. I feel that my life is more meaningful and purposeful in such way.
If you can do one thing differently today, what would you do?
If you allow your heart to lead, how does it looks like?
Are you living from centred self?
