Do “Rules” ruin or run your Life? Here’s a fresh option


This post  is part of a new series of blog postings called “Life as You live it” .  They are designed to be short, sweet and to the point and provide you with hopefully … plenty of food for thought.  Please enjoy.

Hi there fellow Life Lover. How do you feel about wanting to live Free? Do you want to set your own Agenda?

Are the “rules” in your Life slowing you down?

You may be a creature of habit. And that’s fine as long as your habits are allowing you to grow.

You may have adopted some rules from your parents. And that’s fine as well as long as those rules are allowing you to grow.Your Life Your Rules

You and I make our way through Life the best that we can. Excess baggage in the form of old rules for  times different to now, will wear you down.

Lack of freedom. Constriction. Conformity. Expressionless. These are words that come to mind and best describe ‘old rules’.

Breaking free. Creativity. Freedom. These are words that best describe ‘new rules’… Meaning, that you don’t need a bunch of old “rules” to live the way that you want.

Simply focusing on Truth, doing the right thing, being the best that you can and sharing your creativity, your Art with the world, are the “new rules”. Who wants a piece of This action?

The world is changing at a rapid pace. Creative thinking has always been a part of human history however more so now. The ‘creative thinkers’ are now not only the great political leaders and inventors of our world ….. they are people like you and me.

Creative thinking has become more micro rather than just macro. Smaller scale, create your very own circumstances type of thinking. You have to think on your feet, outside of the box more and more these days.

Career pathways of  recent years are not assured. Life and career pathways of today, will change course many times over the next few years.  Therefore the freedom to create your own Life circumstances, is now more important than ever.

New ‘rules’ need to be brought into play. Use them to Your advantage.

What do you think? Are you being played by ‘old rules’?

    Hi David,

    This was a wonderful post and it got me thinking about two things.

    One was what you wrote about career pathways having no guarantee these days. This is so true and as you said, one needs to be flexible enough to not be held back by ‘old rules’ in circumstances which require anything but rules, and rather, require ability to change and adapt to what comes our way.

    The other thing I was reminded of is the Hindu god Lord Shiva whose core principles are based upon non-attachment to rules and instead focusing on the Truth.

    Thank you.

      The Truth is a handy tool to have and to use, Hiten.
      If you must have ‘rules’, make sure they are ones that are aligned with your Truth and give you freedom to Grow.
      be good to yourself
