Something magical happens when we look at life from a higher perspective. The path of the spiritual seeker is to consistently leave the past behind in order to reside fully within the present moment. Beyond the mechanisms of the mind – thoughts, opinions, confusion, stories, histories and other facades – there is great potential and power; however, the ego often distracts us from seeing clearly.
Each level of consciousness creates a filter through which we interpret our experiences. Someone who vibrates at the level of Fear or Anger will consistently create blockages or problems where none actually exist. One exercise is to write out a brief synopsis of a current challenge as interpreted by the ego. Then, create a new interpretation from the highest levels of consciousness you can imagine, and finally create a few more somewhere in the middle. This will help you to expand your vision while cultivating compassion for those who struggle with their own limited perceptions.
Cultivate the art of looking at life’s circumstances from the highest perspective possible. Your first reaction or mental position is simply the beginning of a spiritual breakthrough. Take a step back and see how your vision changes.
