Inner Peace: Are You Running Away or Towards Something?

Are You Running Away or Towards Something?

Ask yourself this question the next time you move to a new job, a new location, or a new relationship. Too many of us run away from one thing towards the next, expecting the new situation to get better. Invariable, we only become disappointed down the line. When we run away from something, it is still always there as we failed to either change it or make peace with it. In essence we are repeating the same mistakes.

Think about someone you know and examine the times he or she has changed jobs. Surely, that person may be very happy initially with a new job, which seemingly brings with it new surroundings, allowing an escape from harmful environments or people. But down the line that person starts complaining about many of the same things that prompted he or she to change jobs in the first place. In other words, they have fundamentally not changed what was wrong to begin with, only perpetuating the cycle.

Or how about a friend person that moved, complaining and listing the multitude of reasons for his move in the first place. Reasons abound and run the gamut, from lack of a social life outside of work, such as a singles scene, to absence of amenities, such as shopping and restaurants. Now, she is in a place with an active singles scene, but she is still complaining about the very same thing!

So, the next time you are contemplating a change, ask yourself this question: Am I running towards something? Or, am I running away from something? If you are running towards something, then great! Otherwise, it’s time to do some soul-searching and ask yourself why you are really running away. What can you do to make peace with or change the situation so that you can be at peace? Note that I have avoided saying “accepting things as they are” because part of making peace is accepting things as they were or are. We can only move forward and start living in the present when we can make peace with and let go of our past transgressions, mistakes, and regrets.

You should ask yourself what you do want instead of what you do not want. Too often, people focus on what they do not want. The Law of Attraction is a funny thing. It attracts what we do what. It also attracts what we do not want. As long as our energies are focused on something, creation is in the works. After all, think about it this way: When you are in a car suffering from motion sickness and about to lose your lunch, the more you think about throwing up the more likely you are to actually throw up. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy at work.

The Law of Attraction works in exactly the same way. We get what we focus our energies on. So, do yourself a favor: Focus on what you do what. It’s a lot more fun.
