How To Easily Create Your Enlightened Life

How To Easily Create Your Enlightened Life

Free yourself from judgment. Each judgment you have is a complaint with the Divine Mystery.

Let go of your attachment to being right. This doesnít mean you canít be right, only that you canít keep score.

Let go of your attachment to being wrong. Scrutinizing your actions to identify your ďmistakesĒ is a justification for self-judgment. The opposite of being wrong and the opposite of being right is the same-just†being.

Stop trying to fix yourself. You are not broken, you donít need repairing, and you donít need to try harder. All you need to do is accept yourself as you are.

Get over thinking your belief system is the cornerstone of reality. It isnít. Everything you think is real is based on an illusion. Laugh, itís pretty funny if you think about it.

Detach yourself from your need to know. The problem with knowledge is it doesnít†do anything. How much more knowledge do you need to embrace the truth of your magnificence. Your choices will distinguish you, not your knowledge. (Note: There is no exception for bad hair days.)

Stop justifying your actions. To move out of the duality of right/wrong thinking, you must be willing to stop defending your point of view.

Quit blaming anyone, including yourself, for the way you are experiencing the world. There are no victims, only volunteers. Assume responsibility for your experience of life, regardless of where you acquired your point of view.

Release the idea that any one human is better or worse than another. If you feel you are better or worse than someone else, you are still under the influence of the myth of your imperfection.

Make peace with yourself (and everyone else). Peace doesnít come and go. It is always there. It is you who come and go away from it…. Continue reading Gini’s Action Plan on

Thanks - I always find these articles thought-provoking.

I find it difficult to completely stop judging others. I live amongst some people that are very different from me and no matter how courteous and happy I am, they always find something to complain about or often have temper tantrums. I'm not going to change my mind about behaviours I find unacceptable like lack of courtesy and loud shouting - so yes, I do say to myself: "You really have no self-respect."

The fact is, we are all different, and we are all imperfect. Of course we're going to sometimes think we're right - and sometimes that we're wrong. And everyone has a 'belief system' of some kind - that's a human trait, and it's inescapable. This article's title - 'How to Easily create your enlightened life' is very misleading - is the 'path to enlightenment' really that easy to find?? I don't think so! And just what constitutes 'enlightenment' anyway? I have a feeling that is different for each of us - a very personal thing. It has taken me a long time, but finally I'm at ease with myself - I just accept that I'm not perfect, that I make mistakes (often!), have made bad choices, and can at times be judgemental. And I do mostly think I'm right but also accept I can be wrong - in other words, I'm just an ordinary human - and I'm ok with that. This article is nonsense; anything that tries to tell you how or what you ought to be or do should simply be ignored. We're all different, and that's great!

They tell us of the three "inner critics" viz the need to control; the need to judge; the need to be accepted, these traits of the egocentric traits of man conceal the true divine nature of humankind and of our connection with one another, Whether consciously or unconsciously our spiritual path on our earthly journey is fraught with trials and tribulations. Our interpretation of this corporeal experience depends on perspective. Attitudes develop as we form a relationship with the world, it is essential we live with a grateful heart.

Perfumes and cologne were not mentioned so what's the story on them? Nothing seems any good for us…
