When I chose to die to myself, it wasn’t an easy thing to do
I had to abandon everything I thought was the truth.
Expose myself and the lies that I once believed.
Get rid of destructive habits that kept me in bondage
The decision to die to myself only came after
constant failure and the desperation of wanting better for my life.
I had to work one by one to remove the negative attributes
that kept me enslaved in my mind. I started to reprogram my mind and learn new, positive ways to handle change and adversity.
I started with learning wisdom.
The more I heard a new wisdom teaching, the more I was encouraged to change especially since wisdom is so, simple yet is carries much depth.
I would apply one wisdom teaching to my life and see the
fruits of the work and I just wanted more and more.
I applied more wisdom teachings to my life
and it just spilled over in all areas.
For instance, here is one of the first wisdom statements
I learned, What You make happen for Others, God will make happen for you.
Now before hearing that, I was trying to make everything
happen for myself.
Always trying to better my situation
and work towards getting out of my own poverty.
Then to hear this in my desperation, it was shocking.
Now, you must know what being desperate felt like
in that time for me.
It means I was out of my own options.
I was tired of the self-inflicted pain and circumstances
I was experiencing and I was willing to learn from a wise teacher who basically had been there, done that.
Yes, I believe it takes that willingness to start
from scratch and be willing to know nothing and abandon everything you’ve been taught….so I was willing.
