Letting go of Toxicity

There are some things you're  unwilling to let go. And without realizing it, it's your unwillingness to let go that keeps you mired deeply in toxicity.

You have the power to let go of your beliefs and values about others -- people, places and things -- and embody a new way to think and live. This new way requires you to unlearn toxic beliefs and values.

When you begin the unlearning process, you will undoubtedly be reluctant to let go of  people you like as well as your cherished possessions. Even though many of your problems come from the toxic relationships you have formed over the years with people and possessions -- friends, lovers, children, home, automobile, education, wealth, religion, and so on -- are the things you must detached yourself from. And detach not so much in a physical sense, but in Consciousness.

Some relationships  need to end. They cannot be fixed by you.  If you truly desire to free yourself from toxicity, then you must spend your time working on yourself rather trying to change others.

Nevertheless, the anticipated  pain you expect from severing these toxic relationships are illusory.  It's your toxic beliefs and values reminding you of your obligation to try and fix others lives and neglect your own.

Whenever you let go of your toxic beliefs and values, you feel like someone without a home. This is the way you feel when you leave the only home you can ever remember. Toxicity is where you feel at home with your race, color, gender, age, religion, education, and status.

Toxicity taught you all that you know about yourself, others, and the world. It is your philosophy of being, your sanctuary from fears of the unknown, and it provides you with a way to think and live.

Regardless of what you think of yourself today, you still accept that it's you. Even if you're feeling depressed, overwhelmed by problems, and imprisoned in toxic relationships -- personal and professional -- it's still you. And the you that you are aware of being have hope your life will get better.

Your hope is conditioned on past experiences and observations of others with similar problems. This perspective limits your vision of change to illusory experiences and observations, and to what  others taught you about life itself.

For those that desire to change, there is an alternative to toxicity and the toxic way of life. You can let go of this lifestyle and choose to embark on "A New Way to Think and Live."

Similarly, you have the inherent power, without permission from others,  to change your own Consciousness. For this to happen, you first must be willing to let go of your toxic beliefs and values. You also must be willing to let go of your current Awareness-of-Being that's afraid to change.

This new way to think and live comes from the Enlightenism philosophy that accepts the Greater Power existing within you as unconditioned Consciousness. This power, after it's discovered by you, provides you with the clarity to know you can choose to accept that you're born whole, perfect, and complete, In other words, before others taught you how to live in a toxic world, you were colorless, faceless, and formless.

Meanwhile, you can  move from your home in toxicity, that's fully-furnished with toxic beliefs and values, into a new Enlightenism home that's fully-furnished with clarity, power, and freedom. This is the home where you dine on beliefs and values that provide you with "A New Way to Think and Live."

"Change your Consciousness, Change your Life."
