Letting go of limiting beliefs
Greetings from “La I”, Uruguay! Here on this chilly Sunday morning, people are arriving to finish the seminar they started yesterday with Satya.
Here’s a little gift for you all, from Isha:
In this extract from a recent discourse, Isha speaks of the illusory security we derive from our belief systems, and how that changes through the expansion of love-consciousness.
"For all of our lives, we’ve been following a set of rules. We know how to behave, how to proceed, how to break the rules and how to conform with them. We’ve been programmed not to break the rules. We feel comfortable, we feel secure if we have a set of belief systems. If we have to find the answers for ourselves, that takes responsibility, and most people don’t want to take responsibility for their own lives. That’s why we want leaders; we want people we can follow, and then when we’re not happy, we can blame them, because we are not taking responsibility. The seed of consciousness is absolute responsibility, because consciousness shows you that you’re the creator, that you create everything in every moment, and there’s nothing to blame on the outside; your joy, your happiness, your freedom, your choices, your responsibility, and consciousness shows you that. People sometimes want to avoid that reasonability, because it’s much easier to be passive, to conform, and to blame other people.
Consciousness has the courage to stand alone, because it loves itself more than anything else, and it’s that courage that provokes change, that provokes evolution. Evolutionaries provoke change. They don’t just passively conform."
