Dear Royal Friends,
I remember reading once that the famous Rabbi Hillel was asked if he could teach the Torah while someone was standing on one foot. His answer was yes. He said something like, “Don’t treat others in a way you would not want to be treated. The rest is commentary. Now go study.” Pretty amazing condensation of ideas. The guy literally invented short and sweet. The idea expressed in that powerful sentence was life-changing for those who are capable of following the credo. Whenever I think of Rabbi Hillel, I think of that lesson as being his essence.
Have you ever challenged yourself by asking what lesson, what credo do you hold that is the essence of yourself? Something you believe in your inner core that is profound that could change a person in a positive way? I bet if you thought about it, you would flesh out something really inspiring.
I encourage you by way of this post, to think about a premise that you believe is life-changing for the good, and share it with us in the kingdom. Let us know! If you are reading this column, you are a person of substance and love. We in the kingdom want to hear what you have to say that could change the world for the better. Just start with one idea. If you thought it, it’s worth reading.
Here’s my big credo. Something that is of my essence: PRACTICE RADICAL FORGIVENESS.
If you forgive radically, unconditionally, you will change your life and the lives of others. You will fly light like a bird. You will know the incredible lightness of being. You will never again drag around the baggage and puss of old grudges. It’s the most liberating thing you can do for yourself without breaking any laws. Practicing radical forgiveness does not mean you excuse the other person. It just means you sing the Frozen song and let it go. Not for the other guy, but for you. It releases the forces of revenge. It breaks cycles of madness. It keeps doors open and let’s people back in. It kicks the crap out of fear. It’s the singular most powerful force in my universe that supports my smile. I’d love you to try it and share your thoughts below!
Bisous et tra la la,
