That tricky ego is finding it’s way around that whole Minding Your Own Business thing…
Yes, it is your business what you think, feel, say and do…But there are some caveats!
– Major caveat: All of the above must be IN THIS MOMENT. It is not your business what you said or did in the past. Remember, if you don’t directly control it, it is not your business. You can’t change the past, therefore the things you said and did are not your business anymore. No second guessing. If what you did in the past must be analyzed, it’s now in the realm of “God’s” business.
– Distinction: Most of your thoughts, you don’t “control”. They come of their own accord. Your point of power is in the observation and intention. Same goes for feelings.
– Distinction: Even your actions, technically, you don’t control. You can intend to do or say something, and it can still “come out” different than you intended. You may intend to pick up a pencil, but you don’t control if that actually happens or not. You may intend to say something loving to your partner, but words form themselves, and sentences end up how they do. Again, your power is in observation and intention.
It is more accurate, and healthy, to understand that your business is in the OBSERVATION and INTENTION around what you think, feel, say and do. Keep it in the moment, and you are getting in the pocket of your true power.
