Never lower yourself to someone else's high standards.

Have you ever tried to live your life by someone else's standards?

I think it'd be safe to say that we all have at one time or another. Just growing up is an example of "do what I say"... but after that there are relationships, and jobs, and a whole slew of governing bodies that tell us how to live.

Now I'm not saying that any of it is wrong. There are some mighty good guidelines out there to help us live a good and wondrous life...

But you know when you're being asked to live up to something that isn't right for you. It feels hollow or it hurts. You feel less like yourself, and confused because the 'rules' don't fit.

You know what's right... and you know you know. Denying that you know (or that you can know) is also living to the standards of someone else.

Within Love (with a capital "L") there is a way of Harmony... and Governance... and Rightness... built right in... and it can't be defined by standards, high or otherwise.

By tapping into that... by being and living THAT... you'll know the way... and you'll know you know...

...and you'll never have to come back down, ever again.

Keep the light on!
