Affirm: I care, but I do not carry.
Oooooh wee this one is a toughie. Coming from a very tight knit Filipino family, I grew up believing that I was responsible for carrying the burden of parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins. Knowing that you will always have some kin (even if not blood related) have your back and support you is a beautiful part of my ancestry.
This morning, I watched @prestonsmiles video on the biggest lesson of his life, and it spoke to me. It is important to care, but not to carry. It is our personal responsibility to keep our vibration high and clear so that we may continue on our missions.
As my parents age, #5 hits my heart. I had a conversation with @activemeditation recently about respecting other people’s karma and accepting their decisions. Although my dad has diabetes 2, it is his choice to continue to eat poorly and not change his diet. I must respect and accept his karma.
