It’s important to be more invested in noticing how you are reacting to people and situations, rather than focusing on the external factors causing your reaction.
Most pain is self-inflicted, created by some form of resistance to what is. Resistance is expressed through judgment, negativity, resentment, self-pity, depression or anger. The intensity of pain is an indicator of how much the ego is in control of the present moment.
Fortunately, there is always a flow of love, peace, acceptance and compassion to tap into. We need only to quiet the mind, go within and seek out this stillness. It is the infinite energy of the Divine that resides at the core of who you truly are.
Today my intention is to be here Now. I honor this space, this moment as sacred.
