ATTENTION: ‘Self Help Whore’

My name is Luke John Harrison

And 8 years ago I started studying happiness

I thought I’d find it in the next book

The next Mentor or coach,

Or program 

The next ‘High ticket’ Sale

Achieving the next ‘Goal’ 

Or overcoming the next ‘Challenge’

Even thought when I get the body of my dreams it will be then

And of course when the ‘perfect’ woman comes along….

(I really was a ‘self help whore’)

Then I slowly started to realise

That true happiness doesn’t come from attaining something

True Happiness is Wanting what you already have

And Not having to find reasons TO be happy

It’s often about detaching from the reasons you’re NOT Happy

Having the ability to ‘let go’ of those notions that you MUST prove yourself worthy

That you must ‘grind’, ‘hustle’ and Become so ‘successful’ 

That you’ll get all the likes, comments, shares 

And ‘wealth’ so people see your ‘things’ and give you compliments

Problem with many of us?..

Is we NEED recognition 

So we display things that others desire

(That they maybe don’t have)

And their hearts get disturbed

(as do ours)

The BIG cars

The fancy Mansions

The ‘perfect’ flawless Girlfriend/wife/Partner

The ‘Perfect’ Happy family selfies 

When in reality?..

I believe, in life we must Give back WITHOUT the constant expectation of return

We are entitled to Excel in whatever we choose

But must remember not to ‘Rule over’

As in turn, that will cause friction and disappointment 

When we feel we want to be better than others

Under this sentence is another short paragraph from the Chinese way of the Tao

‘UNDERSTANDING THE ORDINARY:

ENLIGHTENMENT 

NOT UNDERSTANDING THE ORDINARY:

BLINDNESS CREATES EVIL.

UNDERSTANDING THE ORDINARY:

MIND OPENS

MIND OPENING LEADS TO COMPASSION

And I believe, through compassion?..

Life just gets so much easier

Imagine NOT beating yourself up when things go wrong

Imagine being able to pick yourself up and see things differently 

When people knock you down

Imagine handling your shit easier when things don’t go as expected 

Because  you understand compassion

Compassion = Kindness

And the kinder you are 

man…

Seriously..

The less you’ll give a shit about what others think about you

Which in turn..

Equals more Freedom for you

Luke ‘Love yourself more’ Harrison
