You Don't Need to be Fixed

Welcome back to your daily mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going to talk

about the happiness that comes from

experiencing your innate wholeness.

In other words, learning to recognize

that you don't need to be fixed.

When you were a baby, chances are you

weren't thinking, 'Oh, I'm such a fat

baby', or 'all the other babies are so

much smarter and better looking than me'.

No, you just were.

There was a certain kind of freedom

to be yourself, to be embodied.

You had permission to be human

without self- judgment or critique.

However, it wasn't long before we were

given our first job in the world, which

was to learn all the ways that we're

kind of imperfect or not good enough.

It happens slowly, but it happens.

We pick up a magazine.

Look at the person on the front cover and

then look in the mirror and think, 'How

can people who look like me, aren't on

the cover of magazines?' And then we might

think, 'okay, I'm not attractive enough'.

So we store that in our minds.

Perhaps one of our parents says,

you're so funny to our sibling,

but they don't say it to us.

And then we think, 'okay, I'm not funny'.

And we store that in our minds.

Or, maybe in school, the teacher tells

our classmate how good of a student

they are, but they don't say it to us.

And we think, 'okay, maybe I'm not smart'.

And we store that in our minds.

Although these kinds of interactions

are normal, and some of them are

helpful for us to figure out what

are our strengths in the world?

What are our weaknesses

and what we need to adjust?

The accumulation of all of these

ideas can have a negative impact.

And by the time we've hit 20, 30, 40,

or 50 years old, we have decades worth

of judgments about all the ways we

don't fit in or need to be improved in

order to be accepted, loved, and happy.

And so it's not uncommon to come to a

mindfulness practice like this with the

idea that it will somehow fix us, or it's

gonna make us better than we already are.

But the mindfulness I'm making here and

really all of us at Mindfulness.com,

is that, who you are at your core is

not broken, it's fundamentally whole.

And the happiness you might develop from

these practices doesn't come from becoming

some superior version of yourself.

But rather, learning to embrace

the fullness of who you are.

The many dimensions that make up you and

embracing those dimensions of yourself,

leading to a certain kind of integration.

If we spend our entire lives trying to

be something else or someone else, we'll

never be at peace, eventually, we, we need

to take that journey back to ourselves.

So in today's meditation, we're going

to do a practice that will help you

embrace these dimensions of yourself and

experience that happiness that comes from

connecting back to your innate wholeness.

Thank you for your practice.

And, I'll talk to you shortly.

Take care.
