So it is for the emotions which keep you hostage on a daily basis: fear, regret, and resentment.
They all keep you captive to a smaller life – safely leashed to a life of less.
Fear, regret and resentment are not only hostage-takers – they’re brain-washers — whispering how this is the one and only version of life which you get – yet providing you a tiny window for which to see the light of a larger, happiness shining within reach.
The thing is, the leash you believe binds you to these hostage-takers is only imagined.
But that window is real – and it is bigger and brighter than what you see.
And it is open.
You are free to escape from your fears, regrets and resentments at any time.
Yet you’ve slightly fallen in love with the the familiarity and security of these hostage-takers.
You’ve come to believe that they are your comforters – feeding you – keeping you alive and safe.
But it is you who are feeding them. It is you who is keeping them alive and safe.
Plus, you’ve come to believe that these hostage-takers are the ones who are making the demands.
However, the truth is, you are the one who is in charge of the demands to be made. And it is time for you to demand your freedom. It is time for you to demand a larger, more abundant life! It is time for you to recognize your hostage-takers for who they are: soul-suckers, freedom-thieves, love-robbers, tricky-liars, peace-abductors, inner-war-mongers.
It is time to finally escape from your fears, regrets and resentments – and head for that window of light.
It is open.
In fact, there is no glass.
Breathe in what it is you really want – expand your lungs with the fresh air of freedom.
A larger life awaits you.
