DUKKHA is a Sanskrit word that simply means suffering. It probably sounds like another word you knew as a kid – dookie. Yep, same thing – crap. Simply put, dukkha is a feeling of dissatisfaction, discontent, restlessness, unhappiness, and suffering that we just can’t seem to get rid of. It just keeps hanging around.
Once I realized that I had tons of DUKKHA, I decided to let it go. I came out of denial and admitted that I spent my entire life giving significance to insignificant things. I realized that my programming, perceptions and judgments were the main cause of my suffering, drama and stress!
It was never really what was going on that was the problem… it was MY DUKKHA!
It’s not what someone else said or did… it was MY DUKKHA!
The only thing that I’m a victim of is MY OWN DAMN DUKKHA!
I can’t get unstuck – and I can’t LIGMO and love, and really get connected until I get my DUKKHA out of the way!
Everybody has their own fair share of dukkha. It’s part of the human experience! I say that it’s easier for us to laugh about it together than cry about it alone. I’m going to keep it real when I share because when judgments crop up, it’s time for me to confront MY own dukkha before I go confronting someone else about theirs! It’s pretty ridiculous for me to try to remove the straw from my brother’s eye when I have a telephone pole in my own.
I see folk everywhere, saddled and riddled with DUKKHA and I decided to start a movement. A quiet revolution to help folks let go of the suffering of the past. My dream is to help everyone learn to let it go and move on to their higher good – where we ALL belong!
The LIGMO Movement has begun and we who have decided to LIGMO are getting down to the business of living a life of freedom, joy and contribution. Learning to let go of the crap of the past is a process and it’s also a choice. We all know how to make choices and now it’s time to learn how to let go. Letting go of the past opens up beautiful new possibilities.
Are you willing to keep it real and share what you’re ready to let go of? Come on! – ‘fess up! Share your dukkha below for the world to see. Interestingly enough, the one who tells the truth, gets free. There is no shame or condemnation here. Just love and laughter as we laugh at our human folly.
Use it as an opportunity not to vent, but to share your liberation. Don’t cry about it alone. Instead, let’s laugh about it together.
Live. Love. Learn. Laugh. LIGMO!
