When someone says we are ‘living’ our life ‘wrong’ they are implying there was a right way to living our life in the first place.’ This insight came to me the other day when the word ‘wrong’ popped into my mind.
When I talk about someone saying we are living our life wrong…I’m talking about those people in our life who are saying we should be doing this or we need to be doing that…we need to take that course or get this job….we need to say this and don’t say that….on the examples go. Those people are speaking from a place where they know better than we do. So many times this pattern is part of conditioning of some kind.
The conditioning I experienced was this kind of thing….I learned that no matter what I did, if it didn’t work out or there wasn’t some kind of award, it wasn’t good enough period. Conditioning then goes into adulthood where I would do the same to others. What I have experienced is not only was I doing that to the people around me….I was doing it to myself. As I become quiet inside of myself…I am hearing how the mind is commenting on the ‘should have done this and that’ kind of thing. There is judgment of some kind whether I’m are saying it to someone else or to my self. Becoming aware of what is taking place around all of this opens the door to more healing.
When we hear the word ‘wrong’ we may perceive there is an implication of ‘right’. In life there is no right or wrong way of living….there is only your way.
