Maggie and I got together the other night for a Bars trade. We like to do that, ya know?! And as usual, my brilliant friend and “The Other Conscious Chicky” had a great awareness. She’s so cool!
I have no idea exactly what we were talking about. And we were discussing all the definitions we have for ourselves. “What definitions?” you ask. I’ll get to that in a minute.
We tend to have this desire to define everything. It’s just in our nature I guess. Maybe we could give *that* up!
Here are some definitions we use in our lives:
I am a woman.
I am a man.
I am a screw-up.
He is my brother.
She is weird.
I always do stupid things.
My back is always tight.
I have bad teeth.
Sounds like there is a lot of choice in these scenarios, huh?
Can you perceive the limitation created by these definitions? Let me expand…
If you say, “I’m a total screw-up. I always mess things up.” is there any space for you to choose differently? Can you choose to *not* be a screw-up? Seems like it leaves a person a bit choiceless to me.
So, we create all these definitions of who we are and what we do and we set up a box, so to speak, that we can function in. Anything outside of that box is then not a possibility, right?
That’s a great idea!!! Let’s impose more limitations on ourselves and each other with all of our definitions! We’re SO cute.
We’re brilliant because we set up these definitions of who and what we are so that we do not have to step into the potency of all we actually can be!
Would we like to make another choice now?
I mean, living this life of limitation is comfortable, right? It’s what we’re used to. It’s familiar.
Stepping out of the box is seen as unfamiliar and can be very uncomfortable. It can be scary, maybe.
So we stay in our little boxes, afraid to live the life we could truly be living. Isn’t that awesome?!??!
Is it time?
Is it time to choose something different? Something so completely different from anything we’ve ever chosen before? A life and living without definition, without limitation.
Everything that doesn’t allow that will you let it all go now and forever? Just a thought….
Chime in! Let us know what kinds of definitions you have and are willing to let go of. We so enjoy hearing from you!
What else is possible??
One Conscious Chick!
