Whatever will people think?
I’ve heard this phrase so many times that from a young age I believed it was the reason to do everything or not to do anything. Since I began my own journey into the Grail however, I’ve stopped to re-evaluate some of these repetitive negative mantras that we inadvertently pick up from generation to generation assuming that they constitute some unwritten law by which we must abide.
Whatever will people think really is no business of mine and as such I really shouldn’t be making any decisions based on this faulty set of criteria.
What do I think? What do I believe? What inspires me? What do I want? What will bring me the greatest pleasure?
Of course, in doing something wholly because it feels right for you, is no excuse for deliberately hurting or offending another but what this always boils down to is intention… if doing it your way is counter to the wishes of another ask yourself this: “Am I doing this to be deliberately contrary or am I choosing this path because it’s genuinely the right one for me?” If you answer the former, stop right now and do some deep exploration as to what part of you is trying to punish the other. If however, the latter is your honest answer then you only have one choice if you are to act out of love and not fear… you must do what you must and risk that whoever you defy will understand your integrity in choosing to walk a trail that has not yet shown its treasure to them.
Principle 4: I AM Truth, is only possible when you put aside what others may think and become the powerful co-creator of your own life, trusting that God has got your back.
