All that you see is a reflection of your state of consciousness.
“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”
We are all multi-faceted beings. The physical world provides a reflection of these infinite layers so that we can develop a greater understanding of ourselves and of others. Observe your interpretation of life – Do you feel safe? Loved? Does fear arise or do you feel misunderstood? Of course different interpretations can seem true in various situations. What may be perceived as empowering one day can just as easily be experienced as overwhelming the next.
Allow yourself the freedom to explore these nuances without judgment. All are simply aspects of the human condition. As you grow in consciousness, you’ll cultivate the ability to see through the illusion and to experience life on a deeper level. Beneath emotional reactivity there is always a sense of peace and grace. It’s helpful to be aware of these contrasting polarities in order to drop judgment. Self acceptance allows us to demonstrate more compassion for others when we witness them caught in their own distress.
