There really is no need for everyone to agree with you, or abide by your personal rules, values or morals. We were never meant to be the same, feel the same, think the same, or believe the same. Imagine how different our world would be if we minded our own business and left each other in peace.
If you can change just one thing about the world we live in, what would it be? The typical response from most people would probably be something along the lines of a standard beauty pageant response, such as ‘world peace’ or ‘global warming’. Sure, these are all noble causes, but do they truly solve all our problems?
What if there was an often overlooked and a very basic adjustment we could all make, something that could potentially revolutionize the society we live in? I mean, what would happen if we all simply gave up our attempts at trying to control, manipulate and coerce others into being what we expect them to be, or to behave in ways we expect them to? Sure, it will not solve all our socio-economic or environmental problems, but it might just get us much further than we currently imagine possible.
Our efforts to control others are seldom for their benefit - we do it for our own gratification or to our own sense of security. We trust others will make us feel better, we expect others to meet our demands and expectations. We try to exert this control so that we can feel satisfied and content with the way things are in our corner of the world.
Until one nation ceases its attempts to dominate another, there will never be true freedom. Until one religion relinquishes its quest to prove its god superior to that of another, there shall never be world peace. We will never truly prosper or experience lasting harmony, until we refrain from preaching the gospel of our own moral values and our personal preferences by forcing it upon others.
As a psychic advisor I interact on a daily basis with clients who have yet to discover the truth about “that cumbersome impossibility”. So many people I do psychic readings for are either hoping to control someone else, or they wish to escape the hold someone else has over them.
If you are in a abusive relationship or an environment where you feel controlled, pressured or intimidated, you need to take action! Only you can make the necessary changes. Never stop questioning. Never be bullied. Do not let others define you, or decide for you.
On the flipside, we too often tend to believe that a partner, a parent, a child, or a friend or co-worker holds the key to how we feel now, or how happy we will be in the future. How we feel today or tomorrow should not be dependent on others. Never.
There is only one person who should have the right to determine your joy and happiness, and that is you! Nobody else can provide or withhold your well-being, unless you let them. Until we accept that we really have no control over anything, we shall find no peace, nor harmony, and we shall never know true spiritual enlightenment.
We are not supposed to all be the same, feel the same, think the same, or believe the same. The key to continued expansion of our Universe lies in diversity, not in conformity and coercion. Conventionality is the death of creation. Set yourself free from all that cumbersome impossibility.
