Since my job requires that I work on Sunday’s, I listen to Michael Mirdad, the Spiritual leader of Unity, in Sedona, on line. I learned about the chosen or accepted roles that we accept as children, usually from family members but from society as well.
Instead of allowing the child to decide and nuture that which becomes obvious in the early years, (they do display traits of who they are early on) a lot of times through our own pain we shut them down. It isn’t for the most part done on purpose because we are not awake. This is something most of us do.
On to Titanic. There was a scene when Rose clearly saw that she was pushed to be the sophisticated prim and proper intelligent educated modern day woman, who was supposed to get married and make sure her Mother was taken care of. Rose realized that.. when she saw and observed a young lady and her mother. The mother made sure her daughter sat up straight, with her white gloved hands place her napkin carefully on her lap. In that moment Rose understood that her life, right from the beginning was not hers to live, but her parents, (mainly her Mother’s). In essence her ability to be herself, her “Free Will ” was squashed. When Jack came along it gave her a sense of freedom, gave her the knowing that she could make her choices on her own and did not have to do what she was asked to do with her life, as in make sure her Mother was taken care, after all, that was the reason for her upcoming marriage. Rose found her inner strength and said no…Jack gave her reason to do with her life as she chose, to live her life as she wanted and not be controlled by others.
The reason this usually happens is that we are made to feel guilty. How could “you” be so selfish and not think about others….
Free will allows us all to choose again and again. Sometimes someone will come into our life to show us that very knowing. That, in itself is a miracle.
As for me I was the rebel or so I thought, I ended up serving others too. The main reason is because we all need to believe that we are loved or Need to be loved so we give ourselves away and then become resentful and angry. We become self-destructive or we hurt others (displaced resentment). The resentment is that we do not have the courage to say no and live the way we want.
If we do what we need to be happy or joyful we are more likely to assist others without guilt, because We choose to.
It happens everyday to all of us. Lets all stop. Allow you to be you and me to be me.
No more guilt or shame. OKAY….
All my Love, Angelina
