:: You "Should" Follow Your Bliss! ::
Imagine a world with no shame and blame -- where
it's impossible to be "bad."
Imagine a world where people can stumble, make
mistakes, and sometimes even hurt each other, but
they are never deemed "wrong."
Errors are noticed, and course-corrections are made,
but blame and shame never enter the picture.
In this imaginary world, the word *should* is
obsolete. Think about it: the force behind any
"should" is almost always fear of being judged
(which includes self-judgment).
So, in our shame- and blame-free world, "should" has
no teeth, and you're free to follow your bliss.
Fortunately, the things that *really* matter to you --
like contributing to your children's well-being --
feel blissful when you do them, so you *want* to do
them. No "shoulding" is required.
Today, pretend your world is free of blame and
shame, so you have no reason ever to "should on
yourself." :-) Start following your bliss and soon
you won't be pretending anymore.
