Do you seek what’s on the left or the right?
Security —or— Freedom
Safety —or— Adventure
Noise —or— Quiet
Getting —or— Giving
Satiated —or— Fulfillment
Success —or— Significance
Do you live from the perspective of the left side or right side?
Stability & Sameness —or— Growth Opportunities
Wish Things Were Different —or— Acceptance of How Things Are
Projecting a Self-Image —or— Revealing Authentic Self
Ego —or— Spirit
All of the things above are of course ends of a spectrum and surely we fall on both the left and right at times. I’ve personally found, however, that the more I can approach the right side in daily living, the more I enjoy and appreciate life and the happier I am. In summary, it’s freeing yourself from yourself, your fears, limits, ego, etc. and applying your authentic self toward expressing and sharing your innate goodness with the world through personal continuous growth while accepting total responsibility for your life. It’s taken a long time to learn this but share it in hopes that it will speed you along, and spare you some grief.
