Where do you find this stuff :)

Edit: I'm surprised that a newspaper would produce such a document too. Newspapers are notorious for perpetuating the matrix, but there are glitches in system.

:lol:

My perspective is so different from yours right now. I haven't had the time to leisurely search the internet for interesting articles. I'm either researching a specific topic, or I add whatever I realize or come across that's already in the work that I'm doing that is relevant to the ideas here.

All roads lead to the same destination...some are just more scenic than others. 8-)

Great post. However, these 15 things cannot be achieved on the spot when you've been living so long with those flawed characteristics. I believe some people do not even realise that they can let it go, let it all go!

I slow process indeed :geek:

It is only slow because you make it so.

11. Give up on your fears. Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exist – you created it. It’s all in your mind. Correct the inside and the outside will fall into place.

Indeed!

Nice read, thanks for posting my man.

Great list

Also;

Give up the belief that "we don´t get anything for nothing."
Give up pride of achievement; happily achieve instead.

It's interesting how you added two more things to the list - labels and limiting beliefs.

Essentially, this is all tantamount to one thing -Give up who you think you are, give up your 'person'.

I don't follow. You're implying that 'We don't get anything for free' is a limiting belief?

Yes. Things that we demand or expect from others
limit our experience of it and the full enjoyment of
it when it comes.

About the only thing I see flawed is the notion that we choose these things. We don't choose anything, our fears and attachments happen to us. It may be said that we choose to free ourselves of them, that's also somewhat illusionary, but perhaps not the best place to start.

Great article, though, invaluable perspective.
