Obligation and duty

Do you feel obligated to carry out certain actions that others deem important?

Do you feel you must go to events chosen by others, buy and give gifts, act within the human made frameworks of rules, rituals, honor, custom, tradition, and habit?

Do you follow procedures out of routine and attend ceremonies that no longer make you happy?

Do you feel trapped in endless cycles of duty that bring you no joy and keep you stuck?

It is time to look closely at your automatic responses when duty or obligation come knocking at your door. Do you feel anger, resentment, a lack of freedom, or do you feel uplifted, joyful, connected, and happy?

If you feel resentment, it’s time to gather your courage and create new habits, new thoughts, and new rituals that support and add real meaning and purpose to your life and connect you more deeply to your loved ones. And, they must bring you joy.

It is your life, dear one, and you get to make the rules and set the boundaries that work for you, create the ceremonies, choose the events and activities you enjoy.

You are the creator and designer of your life. Make it beautiful, make it uplifting, make it fun. And make it yours!

GCW speaks of your parents:

My dearest ones: Our tree parents simply flowered and went to seed with no effort or planning on their part. They left our existence or non-existence to chance.

You have parents that carry beliefs and emotions that imprint you over the years of your growing . The blueprint for your body, your physical being, comes much like my seed; programmed from time immemorial. The feelings thoughts and emotions of your parents their parents and all ancestors have been bequeathed to you as well! But you can take them or leave them. Did you know that?

Unlike your bodies, eye and hair color you have no duty to carry on family traditions that hurt – that make you or others small – that keep you from your light and power! You get to choose! You have been given free will! If you are not happy, gently explore the roots of those feelings. Even though you may love your parents and those who came before, you are under no obligation to believe think and act as they do.

You invent your inner lives, you choose again and again how to think, feel, act and believe with each moment! You are the ruler, the king or queen of your inner self!  You are in command!

Choose life. Choose those beliefs ideas, thoughts & actions that support the life you want to create! You are blessed beyond measure!
