Govern Yourself

Govern Yourself…You already do!

Yes, you drive on the correct side of the road…whether right or left.

Hmmm… says something about politics too…right or left…govern yourself.

In other words, make sure you are “right” before you correct the other side…

and do it with compassion. Not everyone thinks like you do.

Now onto other things.

Tony Robbins is asking what your life is going to like when this “situation” is over. How are you going to act…to survive…in this “new world?”

My answer is…you must make yourself new, because the world will go back to the way it was.

Too much has happened.

Too many people have realized the way it was…is not going to last.

So it’s going towards total totalitarianism…or self determination and feedom.

Each of us…you included…has to choose, and therefore unconsciously contribute to that “future.” (I don’t believe in a “future.” Everything is now. You can read about in a previous blog post Here.)

If you want the self determination…you will have to learn how to govern yourself. To determine your life, you need to create it. That means knowing what you want, setting a plan to get it, and being brutally honest on what you are doing to implement it. No excuses.

Self determination is a form a freedom that is not necesarily “free” as you normally see it. It means delaying self gratification, and much self evaluation…which does not seem like freedom at all.

So, Govern Yourself is work! Just like everthing else.

If you don’t go to work, go lose you house, probably your family, and everythings else you value.

But you don’t like to go to work!!!

Don’t even tell you like work…can see thru that excuse a mile away.

I don’t like writing this blog either….it’s work!!!

But I do it because it’s necessary.

What would happen if everyone really governed themselves…like drove on the correct side of road in everything they did.

No more lies, cheating, stealing…excuses.

Can you imagine if that was only true 90% of the time.

Wow!!!

What if you were that way? Don’t blame the world unless you ARE!!!

I’m not asking for perfectness…just 90%.

Another reason to Govern Yourself is to look at what government has given us.

The current situation is good example…and certainly isn’t the answer…so look for a new one.

What if you drive on a road you pay for it…you consume online content you pay for it. If it cost you a small amount each time, you would be much more selective what you looked at. Also you voted with your opinion. If you didn’t like it, you don’t view it anymore. And the stuff you like you view more of.

Apply this everywhere…so if the road is bad you drive on a different one…which means someone (the private owners) would have to fix it…or lose money. It would decrease in value until someone would buy it and fix it, because they could make money at it.

Other ways that are being used is that if you view, share and contribute, you actually GET paid.

All agreements, or contracts could be put on the blockchain…so there is a permanent record… and secured by a bond. The party that is paying is putting a small amount as security, and the paid party is guaranteeing quality work…and is also bonded by a company…which is based on previous results.

There are platforms that are trying to do this right now.

In other words, all financial transactions are permanent and immediate…no more fraud and movement of money is freely done.

Can you see how this would work?

People say that with “no government” it would be chaos.

It isn’t chaos now???!!!

Another concept is “consent.”

Do I consent to my taxes to be used in ways I do not agree with.

Is it right to take money from another under the threat of bodily harm….no matter who does it…a person or a government?

Is not government like the mafia…just with more power. With the mafia I get something back…like protection…or something. The streets “protected” by them are safer than government controlled ones, because there is always someone there that wants to take over…and will if he can gain popularity.

Actually sounds like a better way to me, although the same thing happens to those who rebel…

Consent is the innate right to chose…to create…to live…to Find Your Dream!!!

That’s enough for now. I might add more later!

How Can You Love Yourself

In a previous post, I talked about the “Why.”

Now it’s time to address the “How.”

If you have not internalized the Why, go back to the post here and review it.

I did talk a little about the How in that post too, but let’s go it again, with more Gusto!

Number 1:  This is an ongoing learning and growing process. You are always becoming a different person! Your past is no longer relevant to who you are today

Number 2:  As you grow, things come up. You could ignore them by focusing on the Present, and overwhelming them with the positive, like repeating I Love You {your name}, telling yourself that all day long, listen to this YouTube here, make a video of you saying it over and over, and send it to me!

Yes, send it to me! It makes it REAL when you involve someone else!

Number 3: When some things persist, so you need a way to respond to them.

They will manifest as an accusation. “You can’t do this. Look at all the things you did.” Even things like, “I don’t know how. It’s too much. I don’t have time.”

The response is: Yes that’s true, that happened, but I’m not that person anymore. I Love Myself.

Then your mind will resort to send you thoughts just to make you feel bad. Insane things that don’t make sense, but your response is, “Yes, I know that, but I Love Myself.”

Then wait for a response. Most likely there won’t be any. Just think if you responded that way to your friends. They wouldn’t know what to say. Think about what you would say if they said that to you!

So the mind “leaves you for awhile” to go conjure up some new memories or situations to accuse you. It will say, “No you don’t,” and then flash scenes in your mind, or just “talk in your ear.”

The response is: Do you want me to hate myself? Make it either Love or Hate! If the answer is Hate, there is a big problem. It is an entity, not the real you. The real you would never actually say that.

Number 4:  Know that “Being comes from Doing,” as my Shaman friend says.

The more you do it, the more you will believe it, and the more you will become it!

Number 5:  Know that you want to Love Yourself! You certainly don’t want to Hate yourself!!! It’s innate. It helps us survive, keeps us from suicide, and keeps us creating  and growing!

Number 6:  Actions and Being are 2 Different Things!  What you have done is not you. You are the Being in the Present! Separate your actions, which are only in the past, from who you are in the Present…the REAL You!

Your actions are always creating a New You all the time! That’s a great response to past accusations. “I’m a new me, Now!”

Number 7:  Some of these memories and accusations will be pretty emotional, so when after you are confident in Your Love for Yourself, you can take on the “Big One,” It’s called Forgiveness. 

You have to be ready to admit your “wrongs,” be sorry for them, and willing to go to who you have wronged and apologize. Then offer to make amends. It’s hard, but so freeing.

You will be surprised that most people don’t even remember the situation, or have already let it go. I wrote about that here. I was so surprised when they said that’s all in the past.

The other thing that could happen is that they won’t accept your apology no matter what you do, but you can’t do anything about that. Just know you did your part.

So let’s wrap this up by recapping How You Can Love Yourself.

  1. You are growing and becoming a new person all the time.
  2. Repeat “I Love You” in as many different ways and as many times as possible.
  3. Learn the responses to all the accusations. …I Love Myself Anyway. Then wait for the response. There won’t be one, but it so keep saying Yes, I know, I Love Myself!
  4. Being come From Doing
  5. You WANT to Love Yourself! Ask the question, Do you want me to hate myself?
  6. Who you Are and what you Do are separate.
  7. The Big One is most Freeing!
