“THE SUCCESS OF A PHYSICAL LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, MOST WORTHY,
BUT THE PERFECTION OF YOURSELF IS A THOUSAND TIMES MORE VALUABLE
THAN ALL THE WEALTH YOU CAN ACCUMULATE ABOUT YOU.”
The fact is that enlightenment is possible during your lifetime.
You can be, do and have whatever is for your highest good.
Self Mastery is the true purpose for our lives on this planet.
Since we each have free choice, we each choose to create our lives with our own preferences.
Here is a suggestion for a powerful breakthrough.
Take out a piece of paper (a legal pad works great) and on top of the page in the center,
write, “My Qualities,.” Then draw a line down the center of it.
On the left side at the top write “Negative” and on the right side at the top write “Positive.”
Start with any of your negative qualities and write each one down on the list on the left.
Observe any negative pattern, behavior or quality that you have and write them down.
Be sincere and do not judge yourself, be honest and acknowledge what is.
Be courageous and tell the truth about yourself and when you are complete review your list.
Make sure that you have everything negative about yourself listed so you are complete.
Then look and observe your positive qualities and write each one down on the list on the right.
Continue being honest and acknowledge any positive quality, behavior or pattern about yourself.
Make sure that you go total. This is a time for absolute disclosure and for revealing everything.
It is ok to talk about yourself to yourself. This is not a time for modesty, it is a time for total truth.
Make sure that you have everything positive about yourself listed so you are complete.
You may notice that you run out of qualities to describe you. Give it a few minutes and you will find
that more come to mind and flow out in little streams of creativity. For both the negative and positive qualities, allow yourself a little additional time when you think you are done and when nothing else comes you will know.
When I did this exercise recently, I could only come up with about 25 negative qualities.
I kept thinking there had to be more and sincerely searched and could not find any more.
I even shared them with my wife and asked her if I had missed any. Then I wrote out the positive qualities and stopped at about 40. I thought that I was done. Then a whole stream opened and I came up with another 40. T hen it stopped. I sat for a minute or two and then another stream opened and I came up with another 20, then another 30. I was actually shocked at how many positive qualities I came up with.
Allow yourself to go through your own process. There is no right or wrong way to do this.
This is your Self Inventory. When you have everything listed, go over your negative qualities and ask yourself if your negative qualities have increased in intensity or decreased in intensity over the past few years, 5 years, 10 years, etc. You may be quite surprised about what you discover about even you “negative patterns.”
Then review your positive qualities and do the same thing.
Have they decreased or increased over the years in quantity and intensity?
Then look at both sides of your list and see what you see.
Acknowledge the truth about your patterns of behavior, conduct and qualities.
By having the courage to acknowledge the truth, the truth shall set you free.
You can now make clear, conscious choices about where you are and where you want to go.
These patterns of behavior determine the true quality of your life, health, relationships and true success. They are much more important that money, material possessions or most goals and objectives you have.
It is very possible that after completing this powerful exercise that you will experience a breakthrough. Feel free to email me about it either through the comments here or directly at email@example.com.
I would love to hear from you.
