F.R.Y.™: Giving Back to Those Who Serve.
I did not enjoy failing, and that dislike put an eclipse on my motivation to succeed.
False self-confidence, over-personalization and a damaged mindset due to some painful parenthood experiences have sabotaged some aspect of my life. I dedicated it to my love-relationship and when that relationship felt apart I felt apart either.
My identity was unconsciously intertwined with my Police badge and my gun and my inner self – maybe my ego – rejected that condition. What a contradiction. I was completely off-the-grid and not aligned with the everyday environment around me.
When love relationship and what I planned didn’t go as I expected, I shut down, my body collapsed and mind went all over the place.
Fear is part of our human nature and I faced it many times in my life. Today I am starting a new chapter of my career in a Country that is not mine, with a new project that is requiring a lot. Do I have fear? Yes I do, but it is not the same fear as in the past. It is not sabotaging anything. It transformed in a boost for the motivation to succeed, the same motivation that was eclipsed by the fear of failing.
Transforming is the key. Nothing stay the same: we change, our mind change, our body change, situations and relationship change. If you are able to catch the deep meaning of this ever changing aspect of your live, you are successful as no fear will take place and no attachment will take place.
Be foolish, be hungry said Steve Jobs. I agree. I add “be love”.
I am completely against any kind of animal abuse, no matter if animals are involved in ancestral traditions that should change or medical care or vaccines or taste or fashion. Animals have the capacity to suffer and this is the vital concept to consider. It is not the ability to talk or to think as we do to consider nor the capacity to speak different languages or doing complex math calculation but the capacity to suffer. That gives to a sentient being, no matter the species he belong too, the right of equal consideration. Animals have the ability to suffer in the same way that humans do: they feel pain and pleasure, they have fear and feel loneliness. Every time you are about to do something that in such a way intefere with their needs, you are morally obligated to take it into account, to take responsibility of your no-animal-friendly choice as it leads suffering and pain. This should be the first reason to avoid any animal product. If you add to this all the environment disasters linked to animals exploitation and all the health risks related to the use of animal products, you have no choice but choosing a plant-based life style.
Do not take it personally, this is a fact not to argue about as we ALL are inherently worthy.
Is somebody or something out there controlling the way you are perceiving the happenings and your way of thinking? If that is the case you are a victim to whoever or whatever it is controlling this sensitive moment, because you feel good when the controller is good and you feel bad when it is bad.
If you are reliant on someone or something that is outside yourself to be happy, you are leaving in a stress level that cannot allow you to manifest your inner creative energy as the only thing you perceive is the necessity to survive and strive. When you feel you are at risk, your mind asctivates the stress response hormones that are made up for fighting, flying or freezing you. That is not a creative mode, that is not a moment to reshape your mind by refiring and rewiring your neurons and create new patterns, positive patterns to rewrite the scripts of your life as the author of it and not as a typist controlled by someone else or something else.
Do you really want to leave in lack? Do you really want to live your life by waiting and dreaming for something special to happen without being the author of your destiny?
If so, you are running on a battlefield that can leads you towards a sense of lacking without producing any positive effects on your mind, so your personality, so your reality.
Start seeing synchronicity in between your mindset and the sign you are receiving from the Universe and your life will have nothing but your own signature.
Be the light unto yourself
The quality of loving-kindness is something that really made me think a lot.
How wonderful is it encouraging your heart to see what Thomas Merton called the secret beauty behind the eyes of every being? How wonderful is it to see the goodness around you and inside you?
I noticed that my body and my soul change when I put my self in this field that is the field of love and I am not talking about love relationship. What made that field of love great is that it is accessible and it is accessible during the easy time but also in the difficult time. It is up to you to see the stars looking outside the prison bars of you mind instead of mud.
As I wrote in my first book, happiness itself is the way to happiness, so embrace the goodness inside you and all around you.
