Who Aren’t You?

There is a story about a man from England who traveled to India to speak with the sage Ramana Maharshi. The sage asked him, “Why have you come here?” and the man replied “I am here because i want to find out who I really am?” Maharshi then asked the man “WHO is this “I?”
The man was speechless. Then the sage smiled and said, “If you want to know who you really are, go back the way you came,” The man was stunned because he thought the sage was just telling him to go back to England. The real meaning of “Go back the way you came” is to retrace your steps through life and discard everything that is not who you really are….that you currently believe is ‘you.’
You are not your limiting beliefs.
You are not your stories.
You are not your education.
You are not your bank account.
You are not your job.
You are not your name.
You are not your thoughts.
You are not your fears.
You are not the chatter in your mind.
You are not your past.
You are not your achievements or failures.
You are not your toys.
You are not who you think you are.
You are not what others think you are.
So, who are you? “Who IS this “I?”

Loosen Your Beliefs…at The Unstoppable Workshop

Loosen Your Beliefs

In order to live your soul into the world,
you must continuously loosen your beliefs
about who you are.

…loosen your beliefs about
who you are supposed to be.

…loosen your beliefs about
who other people are.

…loosen your beliefs about
how life is supposed to be.

~ Richard Rohr and Alan Seale

Beliefs are made-up rules, often created when we are small children, that bind us in limitation and keep us in a box of our own making. They often occur as thought stories penned by our Inner Critic. They can seem real and evoke strong emotional / fear responses that keep us going in circles.

Beliefs Have Consequences

It takes time, focus, and energy to hang on to beliefs…just as it does to fly a kite.

Beliefs blind us to any evidence that doesn’t agree with the belief.

Beliefs about ourselves, others and life can cause suffering and cut us off from our own self-love and self-compassion.

Beliefs are never ‘true’…they are simply thoughts that we choose to agree with…though most often we have long forgotten making the choice.

Beliefs pretend to keep us ‘safe’ from what we fear but at the same time keep us ‘safe’ from setting ourselves free.

Holding onto a limiting belief, or not, can make the difference between living the life of your dreams…or ending up with despair, sorrow and regrets.

You are invited to ‘loosen up your beliefs’ and if you do…you may find that they simply slip away and are forgotten.

“You don’t get what you deserve. You get what you believe.”

The Unstoppable Workshop™ is 2.5 days of fun, sharing, learning and transformation. It’s like a safe cocoon in which you can reconsider your world view and choose new ways of being that reflect who you really are. Then, you can emerge with new wings, to enjoy a new life, free of limiting beliefs. We use a lot of experiential activities, games and humor to make it an entertaining cocoon…and one that will compassionately stretch your mind into a new shape.

“What if the change you’re avoiding is the one that will set you free?”

What Does it All ‘mean?’

They say, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Imagine you have pointed yourself in a certain direction, perhaps a goal, some achievement, a personal dream. And while you are on that trajectory…’stuff happens.’

It isn’t the stuff you wanted, or expected, but it’s the stuff that showed up. You feel it as an obstacle, something getting in your way, stopping you. Pause for a moment and think of a recent example…or even an old one. Got it?
