Does how I BE and what I HAVE create how I BEHAVE?
I wrote the word "behave" while journaling this morning and it struck me that it is made up of the 2 words "be" and "have". This got me thinking does who I be and what I have create how I behave?
Being has deep meaning for me. It is who I am at my core - a deeply compassionate and loving soul.
And what I have are my thoughts, memories, values, emotions and beliefs.
So putting those together the way I act (or behave) is made up of
a) how connected I am to my soul and
b) which thought, emotion, value, memory or belief I am choosing to respond from. Sounds about right!
I will put this to the test over the coming days when I notice changes in my behaviour, I'll ask myself 'what has created this?'
If I behave with anger, have I disconnected from my true being and I am responding from judgement, fear, past hurts or negative thoughts?
Or if I behave with kindness, am I acting inline with my true self and allowing love, compassion, clear thinking, hope, peace and trust to guide my behaviour?
I will be interested to see if I can ponder this while experiencing changes in the way I behave. And if this awareness affects my behaviour at all...
