“The awakened person still showers all with loving kindness and understanding, even when cast out by relatives, scorned by friends, rejected by colleagues, ignored by strangers…”
That’s Right! I am responsible for my own joy
Seeing past the stories of the ego allows us to remain lovingly detached from the unconsciousness in others. As we awaken, the mind’s grip becomes less and less powerful and peace becomes the primary motivating force in our lives.
Be patient with the process, with yourself and with others. No matter where someone is on the journey, we are all eventually bound for the same place – why struggle along the way?
With my recent move and trip, I often found myself waking unsure of where I was. This queer sense of dislocation was a new experience for me. As I awoke today to write, I had the same sensation and realized that I had been traveling once again, only to different realms of existence. This wonderful world is very real for us, as are the emotions and responses that we have to it. You can choose to create your own reality… and that’s the joy of awakening.
Today my intention is to be an authentic example of unconditional love and acceptance.
