Beloved, so many Thou Shalt Nots have I given unto you. Turn as many Thou Shalt Nots around to Thou Shalts as soon as you can. That's the ticket!
Recently, I mentioned that Thou Shalt Not Blame, Thou Shalt Not Complain, Thou Shalt Not Feel Sorry for Yourself. Now Thou Shalt Open Your Mind to New Ways of Thinking, that is, if you want areas of your life to grow, thou Shalt Be Open rather than closed, Thou Shalt Be Sure to open your mind and heart and, therefore, your life.
Thou Shalt Open Your Eyes and so bestow more blessings on yourself. Thou Shalt Be Generous with Money and on Spending Money on Yourself. Start thinking you are worth spending money on. You tend to be worth more than you presently see you are worth. Take a new look out of the loop you have been thinking in.
Maybe you don't need to paint your house. Maybe you deserve to hire someone to paint your house for you. Open new pathways. You don't want to be footloose and fancy free with your money, yet, it may be time for you to trade in some money for your time and your sense of well-being.
Make sure you are not being tight from a habit of thought. Your money is your money. Your money may be worth spending on yourself rather than arbitrarily automatically drawing in the reins to prevent you from spending what may actually be within your range.
It can well be that you don't have to go to an extreme and pinch money. Of course, as it is in the world, this is your money. You feel justified to spend it on one thing you see as a necessity and on another thing you consider a luxury - even when spending within your means may well benefit your life. You may tend to base your choice too often on a habit of thinking. Your choice today may follow a path of denial to yourself. You just may not like to spend money when you don't have to.
Who says you don't have to spend $'s on your well-being? A penurious grandfather?
I don't tell you to be a spendthrift. I also do not tell you that you must always scrape by and be hard on yourself. Beloved, you don't have to feel you are at the edge of a financial cliff. Certainly you are not someone who has a habit of overspending. Consider yourself then as a guest and be generous to yourself.
There are poverty-stricken people in some countries who repeatedly feed a guest when it may mean that the householder and his entirely family themselves do not eat that evening. Recognize an innermost desire to give - even to yourself.
Generosity is an overt custom in a hungry land in which some folk live. Beloved, you are not impoverished. You will not regret a burst of generosity to yourself. There may will be so many worse off in a country that some people live in. Their heritage holds a strong custom of loving their brothers and sisters as themselves.
Of course in their land, the one who has meager food comes from his own internal will to serve. He's not trying to impress anyone. He comes from his desire to serve with all his heart and not to impress himself either. He cannot do otherwise. He cannot blind his eyes. Some may, yet he cannot. He is not trying to be a hero. He cannot do less. His heart is glad that he has that which to give no matter how little.
Open up to yourself, Beloved. Be loving to yourself as well. Loosen your heart strings. Your country may be in a depression, yet you don't have to be.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
