We have been somewhat trained to feel guilty for things like being happy, having success, having wealth, having something come easily, or simply feeling good.
Of course, this guilt doesn’t allow us to fully own any of the things listed above, which has a huge impact on us. It robs us of our contentment and joy, which is our way to serve the world. It undermines our ability to do good work, as guilt is a selfish emotion. More importantly, allowing this guilt to keep us small blocks other people from having happiness, success, ease, wealth, or the ability to feel good.
Anytime we have something, meaning fully own it and share our joy, we expand the field and make it easier for others to have it. We know things are possible when we see others doing them. The way to effectively help others be happy is to be happy. This goes for everything else listed above. This doesn’t mean we need to brag about having any of these things, it means we need to move from guilt into gratitude and let that upgraded frequency be the thing that guides us.
Please don’t hide hour blessings and dim your light. Own what you’ve got, radiate the energy of service and positivity that comes from appreciation. We need it.
