REPOSTED FROM CRT 2013
I am currently reading Lisa Transcendence Brown's book "Navigating Dimensions" and came across three parts that influenced me to restart this site. The first talked about teaching others in order to learn about yourself. While I don't profess to know everything and I certainly have a lot left to do I thought that perhaps I could write about what I have done or am currently doing on my path that might help others on theirs. I wish to encourage everyone to do so by adding comments and questions here or starting your own blog. The more we help one another the more we help ourselves and vice versa.
The second idea I read was that we should learn how to share with others. Lisa stated in her book that sharing is much different than what we currently do which is gifting. The idea of gifting something to someone was once a concept that I thought was pretty cool but as she explains it is one that comes with expectation. I always thought I gave just to see someone be happy but then I realized just the idea of wanting someone to be happy when they opened the gift was an expectation. Somehow I thought my idea of gifting was okay because I just wanted to make them smile and I didn't want anything else in return but even this is expecting something from the person I'm giving the gift to. Sharing, on the the other hand, is the act of giving away something for free. I have no expectations about this site, while I hope it helps others that is only a hope, in reality I don't know if anyone is even going to read it! But I'm putting it out there to share the information with no thought of getting anything in return.
The last reason is fear. Pure and simple fear, I fear putting out my own thoughts and feelings, I fear talking about my experiences, I fear being judged for all of these things. Lisa talks about doing things that we resist the most because that is what moves us forward. I resisted doing this for a quite a while, I had excuse about not having anything to write about and so on and so forth, that is why I haven't done anything for a year. Really and truly though I just resisted putting my stuff out there. Fear I know was part of it, not thinking I had anything to say and feeling like I should get something back. While I have put adsense and amazon links on here I really don't expect it to support me. In fact I encourage people not to follow those things, only get things you really need.
If Lisa's book sounds like something you might want to check out I encourage you to go for it, following my link or just looking it up yourself it doesn't matter to me. I just hope that if you do get it, it helps you as much as it has helped me!
