I believe for us to truly progress in this life, we have to be extremely thankful for all that we have. Not that we can't hope, wish and dream for more. Because we can have all of our inner most desires, if we truly believe that we deserve them.
The issue is that most people are NOT happy with where they are and they look to the world and objects to complete them. I honestly feel we need to look within ourselves and to God/Universe. It's okay to want items, it just not great if that's what we need to validate who we are.
This took me many years to understand, I came to finally realize this when I was living with my ex and he was doing all he could to destroy me emotionally. All I wanted was to not live with him or for him to have any power over me, I could have cared less for possessions. When I became free, I treasured that feeling and I always will.
It's interesting how the freedom I finally attained by having my ex removed from my life is when I learned what true happiness was, it was never possessions, it was always freedom to be yourself and not be afraid.
This is a wonderful and amazing feeling, I imagine that there are people who have been imprisoned unfairly and when they are finally free, they treasure this above all else. I know I felt this as in a way I was in a prison of my own making. I allowed someone else to write my story and I believed them, I gave away my power.
I will never give my power away, that is what is so incredible and wonderful about David; he would never seek to make me feel less to make himself feel better. It's one of the reasons I love him so much; I had a huge crush on him when he was a boy but I love the man he has become with all my heart. I couldn't live and breathe and not love him.
The cleanse is almost over and I'm a little melancholy about it, I've actually loved some of the boundaries; mostly I love how I found the inner me. David showed me the path back to her and I took the journey. I feel so very blessed.
I know that it is me who followed the boundaries that were set out for me in the cleanse. I could have done whatever I wanted to do; who would have known? Me, I would have known. This is why I intend on keeping up with a lot of it to some degree, this cleanse has helped to center me and gave me the boost to start a journey on a path I know I'm meant to be on.
