It is not uncommon to see children stamping their feet and declaring, ‘You’re not the boss of me!’
Many people believe that this behaviour is unacceptable, that children need to be disciplined when they behave in this way and that they need to be taught who’s really the boss.
So why do children behave like this?
They behave in this way because they haven’t yet had the independence knocked out of them. They believe that they are their own boss – and they are right.
Throughout our lives we are trained to obey authority through fear of consequence. As children we are taught that if we don’t do what our parents tell us to do we will be punished. If we misbehave we risk being sent to our room or being yelled at. When we behave ourselves we are rewarded for our obedience.
We learn to fear authority figures (our parents, teachers, adults in general) and to seek their approval, and in doing so we lose our independence. Many adults won’t tell their parents certain things because they still fear that lack of approval.
Even as adults most of us believe that the authority figures in our lives control us.
We fear our employers because we believe that they control our financial security.
We fear our governments and their laws because we know that if we break them we will be punished.
We fear authority figures because we believe that they hold some sort of power over our life. We worry that they may choose to take some action that will be detrimental to our life, based on their judgement of us. We try to pre-empt what these authorities may desire of us and do our best to give them what we think they want, never really displaying our true self because we fear they will judge us as inappropriate.
We believe that, as human beings, it is our fate to serve and please our superiors and our creator – God, The Universe, Source, That Infinite Intelligence that governs and runs our world. I like to call the all-powerful energy ‘The Manager’ because a manager works for you.
What most of us don’t realise is that our world is managed by predictable universal Laws. Unlike the human laws that we impose upon ourselves, universal laws cannot be broken.
These laws are based on cause and effect – each thought you think, each word you speak, each action you take gives off a vibration that The Manager will respond to based on universal law.
You cannot mislead The Manager
You cannot hide from The Manager
You are intimately connected to The Manager
The Manager does not judge; The Manager serves you based on your vibration.
The Manager is your servant, not the other way around. You hold infinite power to create your life exactly the way you want it to be. There is nothing in the universe that has more influence over your life than you.
Instead of trying to please others and gain their approval, learn to master yourself and your communication with The Manager.
Once you learn to effectively communicate your desires to The Manager, and you realise that you are in control, that you call the shots, that you create your own life there will be no limit to what you can do or have.
