We inspire, create and live by a set of limits placed upon us by those around us.
These limits define who we are, what we do and how we live.
When we get past these limits and realize we were taught wrong, it disrupts the life we had and can send us over the edge.
The most curious thing about TM is discovering things about myself I’ve believed since I was child. Things I was told by parents, teachers and school guidance counselors have turned out to be false.
I was told I couldn’t do something based on my grades, where I grew up or what I believed.
A few weeks after beginning TM, I had a revelation about my life and the limits I’d been taught.
This made me think about who I was and afterward I knew I’d discovered who I was and what I wanted out of life and it had nothing to do with the beliefs of those I’d been surrounded with as a youth.
I saw in those early weeks of TM my future self and where I wanted my life to go.
Our life is set by the limits of what we’re told, what we’re taught, but when we discover the falsehood of those limits and begin to understand there are no limits, it sets us free and helps us discover a part of ourselves we never believed could exist.
This part knows no limits, it accepts nothing but the absence of limits and when we choose to follow it, we’ll understand limits are placed to protect us from failure, but the greatest gift is to fail.
It’s only in failure we truly learn the mistakes we’d made and with learning we see the reason behind the failure and change things to never make the same mistake again.
Our life is short, but living without the limits placed upon us is the way to truly understand ourselves and our life’s failures.
When I saw the limits placed upon me, I knew something had to change and I’m beginning the changes.
The first was last week. By moving the blog to once a week I’m able to focus my energy to other things and break the limits of trying to complete two posts and maintain my other responsibilities.
In the next few weeks there will be minor things changed, but they will be negligible.
For next week I plan on having my wife—who’s been doing TM for a couple weeks already—write a post on the blog.
I’ll be doing other things with other types of media and will keep things going on the blog, but the posts will stay at once a week.
