Moving Beyond Limitation into Happiness
It occurred to me that, “Limitation” and “Happiness” are on opposite ends of the spectrum; so in order to for us move beyond limitation and into happiness, we need to see what we are really holding in mind. Lester Levenson has said, “There are no problems unless we are holding onto them.” By trying to eliminate a problem, is an indication that we are holding the wrong thing in mind. By facing our ego allows us to move past any limitation or negativity. Any problem that we are facing or experiencing, involves us to continue chipping away at the associated layers of wanting, AGFLAP and resistance. There are multiple layers of non-loving thoughts and beliefs, habits, programs, and holding onto the problem(s), which is why the problem(s) aren’t going away. Details and incidents from the past are deeply submerged within your conscious mind. In order for us to move completely out of limitation and into happiness, requires that we diligently face our aversion topics. When we hold in mind unhealthy tendencies, we are creating unhealthy outcomes. So therefore, in order to have a healthier and happier lifestyle, we need to look at and understand what it really means to take responsibility for our feelings.
Lester Levenson and Larry Crane have been sharing and teaching the Release® Technique method for decades. Lester and Larry teach us that our basic nature is “Love and Happiness.” They remind us that nothing external to us can make us happy. Lester’s discovery in 1952 reveals that by overcoming negative thought patterns is what leads us towards realizing higher states of well-being. Releasing shows us that “there are no limitations or impossibilities,” except of the things that we are holding in mind. Releasing also shows us how we can take direct responsibility for our own circumstances. We do this by strengthening our intention for FREEDOM and mastery over the problem. A great way of letting go of wanting control or wanting to change is to reference the words within the Serenity Prayer. This prayer is perhaps one of the best examples of praying as it reminds us to “Let go and Let God!” The words within this prayer share a powerful message. These words encourage us to remain in CAP. Please take a moment to read the words out loud and hear the message that is being conveyed.
“God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
and Wisdom to know the difference.”
“Serenity” is defined as: the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; and in terms of releasing it is being at peace – everything is perfect. Wisdom relates to discerning or deciding wisely. By learning the Release® Technique method, we learn that Courageousness, Acceptance, and Peace are easily available to us once we know where to look. By accepting the things we cannot change, we can move past wanting to change the past. ‘Wanting to change’ is a limitation that we are holding in mind. Resistance is also a limitation. AGFLAP is another limitation. Wanting of anything is definitely a limitation. Unfortunately, we cannot change events from the past. We can, however, change how we feel in relation to those events. And, certainly all of this brings up more things for us to release.
Problems remain, only to point out, that we are out-of-control in relation to a matter that we created and temporarily forgot we are holding onto. When we look at our so-called problems, obstacles and limitations, we are consciously choosing to move beyond those limitations. We are expressing our will to be happy at all times. Releasing helps us to move beyond unhealthy tendencies and dependencies by teaching us how to take full and complete responsibility for everything that we experience. So if a problem continues to exist, instead of stopping, getting frustrated, or reacting negatively, see this as an opportunity to dig deeper. By releasing the past and letting go of the limitations we are holding onto, and by removing the “I can’t and I won’t” beliefs, moves us further towards happiness in health, wealth and relationships.
Each non-loving feeling and thought is holding a limitation in place. By releasing the limitations that we are holding in mind, allows us to connect with the positive energy. The feelings actually want to leave. The experience of happiness without sorrow, without regret, is only possible if we continue to knock out the remaining blocks of limitation. Each time we attend a release class or call, practice releasing, complete any of the exercises, and share the method with others, generates momentum. The momentum we are creating is for the purpose of moving beyond all limitation. Our momentum is also establishing an upward-shift in the realm of positive-only. The answers you seek are truly within. Just by releasing and letting go of the limitations stored up in your subconscious mind, automatically move you towards happiness. Happiness and love are your basic nature. Being happy allows you to experience abundance, joy and FREEDOM.
Lester Levenson wrote a lovely letter and shares incredible insights on topics such as: health, wealth, love and happiness. He speaks to us about these various topics and reminds us that we all have the same stories. This is obvious when we hear him say, “Talk about me, talk about you, and I realize what’s the difference.” Anytime we encounter material by Lester inspires us to continue moving forward. Lester’s wisdom and guidance are such loving examples of being an unlimited being. As we move towards happiness, we experience inner grace and peace. Love and happiness are the true building blocks of imperturbability. Please take a moment and read/re-read this letter written by Lester. The letter is available for in its entirety.
