Who are your masters? How many invisible leashes (cords) do you have?
Each invisible leash is representative of our priorities and loyalties. Loyalties are great as long as we choose them consciously and are aware of their impact on us. If you have more than one master, those masters may not agree with each other and will take you in many directions, resulting in unhappiness and confusion.
We adopt all kind of leashes, typically in the form of belief systems, which in most cases may not be beneficial to us as an adult, since we chose them at an early age when we were not fully emotionally developed. These leashes are like a leak in a balloon that takes us away from the direction of self-acceptance and self-love, which are the foundation of accepting and loving others.
