Meaningful Connections' intention is to shed the light of consciousness on any situation that makes us unhappy.

  • Discerning between pleasing and serving

    Discerning between pleasing and serving

    31/12/2014 Duración: 14min

    Serving and pleasing are separated by a fine line. For example, I thought that I was serving my mom by giving her a blank check every month without considering the consequences in my budget. Why would I do something like that in my own detriment? Because I needed to please her, I needed her approval, and I was terrified of disappointing her. It looked like I was being a good daughter, but the reality is that I was growing in resentment at the same time that I was disabling her. I created the false expectation that I could take care of her with unlimited resources. When my finances changed, I had to put her on a budget in order to survive. I wondered then, what's the difference between SERVING and PLEASING?

    Why can't we stay awakened? with author Jennifer Schuitemaker

    21/12/2014 Duración: 30min

    Jennifer defines "awakening" as a terminal condition for which there is no outside cure. In fact, she writes, "seeking outside remedies might even retard the process. It is impossible to become what you already are. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you".In a society in which judgment reigns supreme, everyone has to have something wrong with them. For Jennifer the antidote is not drugs, surgery or a visit to the shrink, but a good dose of awareness. "The problem is, we have to stop pushing against everything we think is holding us back. Stop healing all the problems you don’t have in the first place".Jennifer Schuitemaker is a visionary Mentor Author Speaker. Born in the United States and educated in Europe, Jennifer was imprinted with a natural affinity for new thought and ways of thriving. Studying the teachings of both past and present masters, Jennifer combines that knowledge with her life experiences to become a highly educated and certified visionary in her own right.See more at: http://www.mindblin
