I trust that what I have to share with others is what is needed and what is done with the information after it leaves my mouth is none of my business.
The "fixing" need within often means that I want to not only share advice but then follow people into their lives and offer support or suggestion at any given moment. I choose to separate and trust that the information they need at this given moment has been received and the choice to act then lies in the receivers hands.
All I desired as a health practitioner was to help and "fix" others; friends, family, strangers on the street! Very quickly I learnt that the only person I can truly help is myself. I can offer support, guide, advise and I can be an example of what I want to share but I cannot attach or place expectation on the outcomes of others.
We can love and respect all around us wherever they are at on their path without judgement or expectation. Of course when we are coming from a place of love we only ever want the best outcome for all around us. But we cannot hook our energy cords into their outcomes or we can miss out on giving true support and love in the moment as we instead are focused on an outcome.
The same love and respect should be given to ourselves.
No one is responsible for the outcome of anyone but themselves.
Questions to ponder:
* Is there anyone in your life right now who you are focusing more on the future for them then the right here and now?
* Have you hooked your energy cords into the outcomes of others?
* How would you feel focusing on your own energy and outcomes rather than those of others?
