Permission Granted

How often do you trust yourself? Every once in a while? Always? Never? Do you find yourself second-guessing, wondering if you made the right decision?

Do you make decisions with fingers crossed, hoping that when things shake out, you’ll still be ok?

From a very young age, we are taught to look outside ourselves for permission and approval. First our parents, then our teachers, then our bosses, our spouses, our gurus.

We even look to our neighbors and our friends, basing our self-worth on their acceptance.

The real question is do YOU value you? Do you trust your intuition? We can spend an entire lifetime seeking outside approval to simply be ourselves.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can learn to trust our innermost knowing.

We can be 100% whole and complete without someone giving us permission.

It starts by just sitting and breathing. And trusting whatever comes up.

Quick Meditation Tip

During our sitting practice, we just watch, noticing the arising thoughts and impulses without doing anything about them. Even troubling thoughts are simply left to drift off as we come back to the breath. Relaxing, opening, letting go.

Quote From Adam

“You accept authority, as the guru also does, in order to be safe, to be certain, in order to be comforted, to suceed, to reach the other shore.”

“No authority knows; and he who knows cannot tell.”
– J. Krishnamurti
