Let Them Have It
Seems like everyone’s got an idea about how things should be different …
- Politicians shouldn’t lie.
- Governments should govern better.
- Police shouldn’t be racist.
- Minorities shouldn’t experience violent discrimination.
- Terrorists should be stopped.
- We should all take better care of our planet.
I’ve said these things and more. I can rant with the best if you catch me in the right mood.
But when I’m in my right mind, I know that how everyone else rolls isn’t my business.
What’s my business is ME and how I feel. That’s all I need to pay attention to.
What others are doing doesn’t have to impact me if I don’t let it. Which I know is easier said than done, but it’s worth mastering since it’s impossible to control other’s behavior.
What serves me is to pay attention to what I want, rather than try to micromanage everyone else into my idea of a good time.
Conscious creators know that, right?
And many are good at practicing it, too and knowing how to let everyone have it their way.
Even when it’s not your way.
Because your happiness doesn’t have to depend on what others are up to.
When it does, you’ve set yourself up for a very. big. challenge.
That’s trying to manage the unmanageable.
All you can manage is your own self. In what you feel and do.
That’s what’s worth being in charge of – focusing on what you prefer and doing what feels best. That’s in service to not just yourself, but the entire planet.
Because as Abraham says, we aren’t here to fix a broken planet. (It’s not broken.)
The fact is we don’t all want the same things. And there are good reasons for different desires.
We were never supposed to want the same experiences.
And that’s okay. Because having different dreams and goals doesn’t mean one wins and another loses.
We can all have what we want when we stop thinking that others prevent us from it.
(Law of attraction sorts that stuff out so we don’t have to.)
Which means it’s okay to let them have it their way. You still get to have it your way – when you mind your vibrational business.
If your way requires that everyone conduct themselves a certain way, you might want to rethink your position. For the sake of your sanity, let alone your happiness.
“We would not impose peace on anyone.” That’s what Abe says when Esther gets invited to join world peace movements.
We would not impose peace on anyone.
Because we each get to choose what we want to live.
I think that’s worth remembering that all desires are valid – not just our own.
Everyone gets to want what they want; everyone gets to be right; and everyone can live happily ever after – when tending their business instead of trying to manage everyone else’s.
Letting them do it their way doesn’t mean you can’t be peaceful yourself, and it doesn’t mean you don’t wish for others to be happy, too. It doesn’t make you irresponsible or uncaring.
The conscious creator way is to tend what we can manage, instead of getting wrapped up business that isn’t even ours.
Your peace, prosperity and happiness start with being willing to choose it even while others aren’t.
So don’t put your good time on hold until you get everyone else on the same page. That’s the kind of happiness handicap you don’t want to carry.
