Re-Discovering Your Expansion. Melt Limitation Away.

This has been a ongoing subject for me for the last couple of weeks. Something in which that, I myself have been observing to both see and to guide those connected to me in my life currently. Limitation is one of those things that we as human beings have become masters at. What you put into your practical life is what you get back.

Seeing where we are creating our limitation is important to our mindful growth.

It is completely within our reach to see these and to change them if we prefer. Now I don’t claim this to always be easy. In fact I’ve noticed that it is often very effort driven (in the beginning) in the beginning. And a lot of people would rather divert their attention rather than take the step into the dark unknown of limitation to transcend and cure or expand into something more breathable. It is easy to find guy after guy after guy in a relationship then to work on yourself. It takes mastery, art, and skill to dissolve the limitations you set for yourself and open up the door for better relationships.

Imagine going into a limitation as if you were moving back with a huge slingshot type rubber band around your waist. The further you move back, the further you move into dark unknown space. However the further you move into this limitation you’ve created, the more potential to shoot yourself out of this and out into light (or a more preferential state).

If you are un-happy with your life right now, isn’t it that because you are currently limiting yourself through a belief to the possibility that there are other preferential beliefs or practical living possibilities? You say life sucks?

Is it not that your idea is creating the limitation which causes the “negative” vibration of how you feel which then reflects outside?

So in essence, you change your belief which is limiting you, you change who you are. And you change who you are, the world literally will reflect this new reality because it is no longer that older “sucky” reality.

There Is No Such Thing As A Flawed Belief

This has been one of those subjects that has also been on my mind lately as well. And for what it’s worth and from were it’s perceived from here, there is nothing wrong with any one belief. They are not flawed in the since that there is anything wrong with them. Each belief is exactly as it should be, that carries out its function exactly as it should. This comes back to limitations.

It is not that a belief is flawed, it is only limited to what the beliefs structure limits it to. And thus creates a sort of turning back inside of itself like a fractal image.

All beliefs have their limitation, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Just see that these things are like boats in which get you to a destination. And once the destination is reached, you no longer need the boat so it is set down to continue the journey more light footed in a sense. You take that experience with you however do not need to carry the boat as it will weigh you down.

We as human beings have great struggle because we carry our limitations with us instead of setting them aside after we reach the end of each belief.

We hang on and grasp onto these ideas and thus mask over the opportunity of what life has to actually show us. That is why it is good to be mindful of this happening. You cannot move past a limited belief, if you cannot see that you are holding onto it.

How Do We Move Past Beliefs?

This is both the hardest things to do, and the easiest things to do. Firstly, being mindful of the belief that you’ve limited yourself with is important. A good sign for this is, a very non preferential feeling that arises when interacting with something in your immediate focus.

Having the conscious intent to see what is causing this arising non-preferential emotion and really looking at what source is causing it.

And then you work at it! It doesn’t always drop within the first seeing. Sometimes it has to be seen over and over, until finally it clicks. You may even react to it still in the beginning. The more mindful of this limitation you are the less and less reactive you become. Power comes by being able to respond and to take responsibility. Accepting it is there and having the mindfulness to watch it arise and fall away is right action and right view.

    Nice thoughtful article. In fact I’m going to have to come back to it to fully comprehend.
