Today we ask that you do what feels right for your individual energy.
Every living thing is totally unique. Every living thing has a one-of-a-kind energy signature. There is no one else like you anywhere in the universe. And the number of living things in the universe is beyond counting, beyond reckoning, beyond comprehension.
Even so, every single life form is utterly unique.
While all human beings share a common pattern, every human born is completely singular. There is no one else quite like you, and there has never been anyone else like you in all human history.
This being the case, there is no “one size fits all” approach to a good life.
Everyone must find his or her own way in the world.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of people who want to tell you how you ought to live your life. People with very strong opinions about the “right” way to live and do things.
And sometimes people have good and useful advice. Usually this occurs because there is a harmony between your energy pattern and the energy pattern of the person giving the advice, in that specific situation.
Other times, people’s advice is not useful at all, and potentially harmful. That is because there is a disharmony, a discord, in the energy patterns.
While that person’s way of doing things may work perfectly well for that person’s unique energy, it simply does not match your energy. It will clash — the way certain colors clash, or musical notes sound discordant.
And you will know this because trying to live your life according to this advice does not feel good. It is like wearing clothing that is too tight, or does not match your body.
Sometimes you cannot know whether advice is harmonious or disharmonious until you “try it on,” the way you try on clothing, or try on a pair of shoes.
The problem is, while you may have no difficulty identifying clothing that is wrong for you, or shoes that are too tight, many people live out their whole lives following guidance or belief systems that are totally disharmonious for their energy pattern.
Imagine if you were always wearing a pair of tight shoes. You would constantly be irritable, and in pain.
That is what it is like to follow disharmonious guidance. It is like wearing a pair of too-tight shoes. Only instead of removing the shoes, you think there must be something wrong with your feet.
You believe that the problem is not that the shoes are too tight, but rather that your feet are too big.
This is especially true if you have been wearing these tight shoes your whole life, since childhood — because your parents or teachers put those shoes on your feet, and told you they ought to fit even if they didn’t. They may have criticized you for having big feet and insisted that you wear the shoes anyway.
Does this make sense?
So look at the areas in your life where you feel pain and constriction. Ask yourself, whose advice am I listening to here? Is it harmonious with who I really am? Is this who I really am?
Maybe if you took off those tight shoes, you would truly relax and feel comfortable. You could spread out your toes, and feel the earth beneath your feet.
You are completely unique. Though you may share common features with your parents, your family, your race and your culture, you may also be utterly different from them. The shoes that have fit your family and been passed down for generations may be a complete mismatch for your particular feet. And yet you have been hobbling around, in pain, thinking the problem is with you — not the shoes.
Parents, honor your children as the totally unique beings they are. Encourage them not to be little versions of you, not to do what you want or fulfill your ambitions, but to do what is truly best for their unique energy. Even if it is difficult at times for you to understand them, even if the clothes and shoes they try on seem disharmonious to you — let them explore. Let them find their own way.
Honor yourself in this way. Do what is right for you. It does not matter what anyone else thinks. People are always going to judge anyway, even when you try to please them. In fact, the more you try to please them, the more they will judge you and find you lacking. You can hobble around in those tight shoes your whole life, trying to please them, and they will still judge you.
So why not take off those shoes and feel good, for a change? Why not do what feels right for you, as an individual, no matter what anyone else has to say about it?
Follow advice that is harmonious for you, as you wear a pair of shoes that fits you well.
As for the rest — cast it off. If it causes you pain and stress and makes you miserable — cast it off.
Do what is right for you. That is the best thing you can do for anyone else in your life, whether they understand it ir not.
Because the happier and more fulfilled you are, the more harmonious you will be for other beings in this world.
Do what is right for you. It is never selfish, no matter what anyone else may say. It is the wisest thing to do. Only a fool would hobble around in tight shoes because he thinks it will please others.
