ReTHINK : Don't let others to define you

Glimpse from the tribes e-book " ReTHINK- Be yourself"

Osho said once that we have been taught to believe, believe in god, believe in soul, believe in this and that. Now that belief has entered your bones and your blood, but it remains as a belief- you have not known. And unless you know, you can't be liberated.

All beliefs are borrowed; others have given to us, they are not our flowerings. And how can a borrowed thing lead us forward to truth.

Most of us have have been thinking the same thoughts for so long that our thinking feels like a deeply ingrained habit that we believe we have no control over. Why?

For a simple reason that we've been running the same old story and our historical mental programs for so many months or so many years, they had been become automatic and unconcious. We always believe that we can't change our thought, but we shoudl always remember that we can change them into habits of mind that serve our potential as we have absolute dominion over our thoughts.

The more personal responsibility we take for every one of our thoughts, the more powerful a thinker will become.Do you let other people define you? Do you let them tell you who you are -- or are supposed to be? Does your self-perception change according to who is around? If so, they may be impinging on your mission.

Thank God that there's a time delay, that all of your thoughts don't come true instantly. We'd be in trouble if they did. The element of time delay serves you. It allows you to reassess, to think about what you want, and to make a new choice....LISA NICHOLS (From the book, The Secret)

Do not sway. One thing that makes us fully human is our ability to think about of our thinking. Right now, in this very moment, you can always choose to sit quietly and inquire the belief that run and thought that fill our mind each day. And that matter most.

People label us. They put a tag on us. And too often, it sticks. We start to believe the way we're perceived. We let the judgment take hold on us. They perceive us based on assumptions, false first impressions, or old information. They categorise and  keep us in a box. They limit us. They seek their own comfort in trying to form us as they want us to be, in the way that makes them most comfortable and superior. And ironically we surrender and submit ourselves to other's thought without ReTHINK.
The only limits on your life are the ones that you set yourself....Robin Sharma
You can't let others project their emotions on you.They often want us to remain in the slot we were in when they first met us and just as often they define you on past historical mental pictures.
People categorize us. People cast us into a role, a mold. We're in a file in their "filing" cabinet. They have stereotyped us.
Fear is nothing more but a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of consiousness....Robin Sharma
Don't let negatives be spoken over you. When that occurs, it's like a curse. Shrug it off as soon as it tries to alight on your shoulder else we shall infected by it. Mahatma Gandhi said it so well when he wrote  : " I will not allow others to walk through my mind with their dirty feet." So any time your mind shifts to something negative, guide it back.hart Tolle wrote in his book in A New Earth that :
"Give up defining yourself -- to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are."
Even Oprah Winfrey said one that "You define your own life. Don’t let other people write your script."
