“Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference – we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life.
While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.
Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy?
If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do, by making some kind of impact on life.
Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected.
Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully.
And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!” – Alice Mary Hilton
This is a great thought and one that I feel plays a huge part in our lives. Why do we look to others to recognize our efforts? Why do we need others approval and recognition in order for us to believe in ourselves and our abilities?
How would it feel if we all let go of the pressure we feel from our need to be recognized, and just believe and have faith in our true self?
