Trying to change your state of mind is like remodeling the basement and expecting a penthouse

When we are in a low state of mind, it’s tempting to try to change things. But if we try to work on the “self” that we perceive when we are low, we are essentially remodeling the basement in hopes of getting a penthouse. What we are experiencing is always and only a projection of thought, and if we leave it alone, thought will invariably change all by itself. But please, don’t take my word for it. Play with this. Wonder about it. And let me know what shows up for you. ♥

    If I start where I am and I take inventory of what is, then I can begin to remove, let go, that which does not need to be “in the basement”. If old belief systems are holding me from climbing the stairs to the next level then I need to take them out, dust them off and gently tell them that they are no longer needed. They aren’t my beliefs but those that I gathered, all my life, from those around me.
    When the basement is in order, fresh without old baggage, beliefs, junk, things that I no longer need for my growth and well being and they have been cleared out I can look inward and see the beautiful, joyful, thing that I am. From this place I can now see the next step and the next until I arrive at the next level of work that needs to be done.

    I like your analogy of the basement very much. Wondering if this is similar to “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” – Albert Einstein?
