ANITA MOORJANI shares her experience of letting go of limitations, viewing herself as an ongoing work of perfection, and seeing beauty in the journey and in the mistakes along the way.
Synchronicity and the idea of attraction have been given a lot of attention in recent years. The thought of things falling into place effortlessly because we’re attracting them, is alluring, but I prefer to think it is allowing rather than attracting.
We’re one with the universe, our purpose is to be our magnificent selves, and the external world is only a reflection of what’s inside us. A breakdown came in my life when my focus was outward, due to the comparisons I made, and the competition this created. I used to feel that there wasn’t enough for everyone, which caused greed and competitiveness. I always felt the need to convince others to think the way I did, instead of embracing our uniqueness and differences.
All these feelings came from the view that the universe is limited, when it’s actually infinite. It’s capable of growing and encompassing as much as we are. It’s up to us to expand and allow in as much as we want, but it has to be done from the inside out, not the other way around.
Once I realized that there’s nothing outside my infinite self,
I could begin to focus on viewing myself
as an ongoing work of perfection
– but in a way that’s dynamic not static.
Once I realized that there’s nothing outside my infinite self, I could begin to focus on viewing myself as an ongoing work of perfection – but in a way that’s dynamic not static. Like a kaleidoscope that turns from one exquisite image to the next, perfection is constantly in motion. To me, this means seeing beauty in the journey and in the apparent mistakes as they take me to another level of understanding. My aim is to feel good enough about myself to get to a point of trust, and to let go of the outcome. When I observe my own infinite nature, my external world reflects this. Then I attract what’s best for me, which is also the best thing I can do for the universe.
