To the edge, Maybe?

8 Aug

I keep reading about the idea of personal fulfillment…We should be pushing ourselves to “the edge” and only by doing so will we know our abilities/limits and hence personal fulfillment…

But…

…My mediation teacher says, personal fulfillment and keeping your positive energy open comes in our choices. Everything we do and think about, is our choice. The question we should ask ourselves, “Is this choice beneficial to my well being (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and to the well being of others.?”

And…

At the end of our day, we should do a recap, a review of our day’s choices. Being mindful and staying present in total honesty, (lying to yourself is inexcusably damaging to you and to others) and in our evening’s review, if some choices were not beneficial to our well being, then we should inhale empathy for ourselves and exhale empathy for everyone else in the world who feels pain/anger/humiliation, for we are all connected and no one wants to suffer in pain.

So without judgement or guilt, set your intentions for tomorrow’s choices of physical, emotional and spiritual well being…

 

Which do you like better?

1) Pushing to “the edge”

OR

2) Beneficial “well being” choices

Today’s intention: I will stay mindful of all MY choices!

    I’m not really an edge-type of person. Too exhausting. I prefer to be in my house. 🙂

      Good place…out on the edge could/would unravel me!
