Day 293: Daring to outgrow my promises

I am not the same person I was 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 1 week ago, or even 1 hour ago.

As human beings, we are constantly changing, evolving, transforming, shifting. Our physical body is in constant transition.

Our beliefs change. Our values change. 

... and change is scary, for our minds crave certainty. It is scary because it is the unknown. Is is unfamiliar. 

Our brain and body are designed to be addicted to efficiency. Efficiency isn't necessarily correlated to nourishment or fulfillment. Change disrupts efficiency.

Efficiency in our physical form (mind and body) translates to thoughts and actions being on auto-pilot.

This is what our mind and body are designed to do.

It takes conscious effort to alter this auto-pilot behaviour.

Our spirit is unbounded. It is designed to grow, evolve, feel, experience, be unleashed, move, expand. 

In the journey of enquiring into wholehearted living, I'm understanding the importance of self-auditing, checking in with my heart, checking in with my mind, body, and spirit. 

When we are centred and in alignment to the true part of ourselves, Love, we transcend that which suffocates our experience of being whole.

Our mind and body can be efficient and our spirit dampened. This is an indication that we have outgrown the promises we created for ourselves. There is a condition of vulnerability that is present if we are to acknowledge that we have outgrown the promises we have created for ourselves.

It takes courage to let go of the promises that we've outgrown - and on the other side of this admission, a whole new field of possibilities and undiscovered terrain. 

It is scary knowing that we have outgrown our own promises. It is scarier keeping these promises that no longer serve us.
