I have a small story to tell…..
As someone was passing by the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge magnificent creatures were being held by only a rope tied to their legs. It was obvious that the elephants could at anytime break away from the ropes they were tied to and run free but for some reason, they did not. So he asked a nearby caretaker why these beautiful, majestic, so powerful animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.
“well” he explained, “ when they are very young and much smaller we use the same ropes to tie them and at that age it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them tight, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. (I was amazed too the first time when my father explained that to me when I was a child and it stayed in my mind) These animals could at anytime break free from their bonds but because they “believed” that they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. The powerful and gigantic creature has limited its present abilities by the limitations of its past.
Does that story sound familiar? Like these elephants how many of us go through life holding on to a belief or beliefs that we cannot do something, we cannot be someone, simply because we failed at it once before? How many of us refuse to attempt something new and challenging because of our so called “MINDSET”?
I hear and see a lot of people that are powerful and strong, struggling tied to their own ropes of past beliefs and not attempting to break free. You know who you are…you have grown up, you are strong enough and you have more divine strength in you than you believe to break free from the old ragged ties. Don’t stay there feeling sorry and helpless just break free, your ropes are not even real, they are all illusions in your mind. Most of the old beliefs you hold on to are not even yours, they are forced upon you by someone else.
Be Free my beautiful souls.
I love you dearly
