Riddle Oil lives by a vision that can be expressed in one word, Allow. This word carries the weight of a million dreams fulfilled. We believe in being better, not better than others but better than ourselves. We believe in listening from a place of inspiration, not memory. We believe in clarity, understanding what you want from your life. We believe in loving yourself and betting on who you are with the awareness of what you are. Last but not least, we believe in allowing your life to unfold naturally into your dharma (calling).
Being better than who you were yesterday is the main drive of life. It is important to raise your bar and constantly but peacefully create a better life for yourself. “It ain’t over till it’s over.” -Yogi Berra
Listening from a place of inspiration requires stilling the mind and taking time to allow your deepest thoughts and desires to arise. We often live from a place of memory and repetitive thought processes. We leave little time for new sparks of inspiration to come through. Yes, taking time out of your day to meditate is very important but the idea is to make your life a seamless meditation. Practice not responding robotically but from a place of freshness. “If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” – Amit Ray
Once listening is mastered then clarity can become a way of living. You create a set of principles for yourself that are all the support system for the direction you are walking in your life. You’re decisions become beelined to the end result. You stop making decisions that contradict your intended outcome. You are able to use all of your time walking towards the goal and not being distracted by unnecessary side paths. “It’s a lack of clarity that creates chaos and frustration. Those emotions are poison to any living goal.” – Steve Maraboli
Loving yourself comes from truly accepting that you are here by the sheer miracle of perfect timing, you are much more than you will be able to conceptualize in this lifetime and it is vital to be unapologetically YOU. People are always looking for where they can place their attention. It is up to you to direct the way that you present yourself. If you love yourself, it will show. If you believe in yourself, it will show. Master being confidently humble. You are great, believe it and Allow others to see it. “When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you.” -Lao Tzu
Now for the sacred art of Allowing. You have learned the importance to desire betterment, to listen, adopt clarity and love yourself. It is time you understand the necessity of allowing your desires to come into your life. It is like the vampire trope, it can’t come in unless invited. Your desires work much in the same way.
Anything you do in life has the potential to be a masterpiece. Whether you are cooking breakfast or painting a mural, you are a creative being by human design. Fulfilling this role will allow you to experience life from a full sensory place, you will invite excitement and exploration to your daily existence.
You can spend your whole life asking the universe (or higher being) for your wishes, but this is only the first part of the creation process. Don’t get me wrong, knowing what you want is a HUGE accomplishment that most people spend their whole lives void of, but you must also see the signs once they are presented. Life will hand you people, circumstances, etc. that you must acknowledge as your next step and allow into your life. Our wishes are not always fulfilled the way we imagine. We must leave room for universal magic and accept that our plans sometimes need a revision. Trust that what you desire is on its way and allow everything along the way to shape it.
We at Riddle Oil live by this Allow philosophy. We believe in what we are offering the world and hope to inspire you to grace the world with your creative offerings. You are capable of anything you can dream. Everything that is was once imagined.
