FREEDOM MONTH: DAY 26: “The things I carry are my thoughts. That’s it. They are the only weight. My thoughts determine whether I am free and light or burdened.” ― Kamal Ravikant

I love to read Eastern authors when gathering my quotes. The reason for that is they are traditionally trained in spiritual ways of thinking and living. These things take us with Western indoctrination a lifetime or more to overcome.

I only have a handful of acquaintances who have done this kind of work to change their Egoic ways of thinking and being in this world. It is all about their Ego. All about their beliefs in fear and limitation, versus knowing that what they believe is killing them and all that they strive for in pursuit of spiritual beliefs.

There is nothing in Western culture or religious dogma that does anything except to feed Ego. I have explored it for a lifetime and found nothing that feeds my spirit. It is all about fear and power and judgment. Ugh! No wonder we lead the world in materialism and addiction.

And thinking is ALL about Ego. There is no form of thought that does not speak of problems and burdens and Ego. How awful that this is all we listen to, day after day, year after year, ad nauseaum. I am so grateful for the early introduction I had to other ways of believing and seeing life. It did not take until I was able to leave behind the drugs and alcohol, but the seeds were there and planted, and I was able to jump right into a spiritual path that truly works, hand-in-hand with these steps.

I find that those who continue to work with more Western beliefs are stuck for a lot longer. I don’t believe I would ever have remained free of drugs and alcohol with all that judgment shit. Today, I am so happy with the path and the freedom of what I have been able to seek and find in the spirit realm. It truly is a gift of great grace and love. I am truly free and light. Yay!
