Expand our consciousness

story, inspiring, life, spirit, lesson, help, how to, I want to share a short and powerful fable which offers our minds a glimpse into the potential ability to expand our consciousness and our lives. I have come to learn that we tend to live within the confines of what we are willing to believe, and more and more I am realising that what I previously believed to be true about myself and the world I live in, may not be the way it really is.

Mostly I still play this game of life by the rules in which have been handed down to me, but the cracks are forming and the walls of my perceived foundation are beginning to crumble. I am on a mission to expand and spread my wings so far that they break through the confines of those walls, and when they fall, I will be able to experience reality as it truly is: miraculous.

The Story:

There was a mighty lion, Janro, who was born in a small zoo. As she grew, she made it a point to investigate, as best she could, all of the aspects of the world around her. All of the other lions in this zoo had been born in captivity as well.

One day, another lion was added to the group, but she was captured in the wild. When she spoke of the vast savannas, the tall, spreading trees, the birds in the sky, and the other wonders she knew of, Janro and the others scoffed. “How could this be!” They would exclaim.

“We’ve had plenty of time to investigate this world. We know precisely the limits of our cages, what other kinds of animals there are, where we came from, and how we get fed. What you are telling us is preposterous! Prove it!”

    Sounds exactly like what I have been writing about and preaching lately. Most people only know the world through their place in society and this positioning tends to be a distorted reality of the bigger picture. People have to awake from their comfort zone and perceived reality in order to understand what the world around them truly offers.

    Our beliefs really do act as the boundaries within which we live. Regularly evaluating and challenging them if need be creates much expansion and growth in our lives. This was a great post!

      Thanks so much! Yes it is great to challenge them and question where they came from and if you really even belief them – or if they help your life or hinder. Have a wonderful day!! Sharon
