Ego-driven thoughts of negativity, fear, anger and blame run constantly in the background of all conflict. The mind latches onto a story and repeats it incessantly until it is accepted as “truth” or “telling it like it is” creating separation and hostility.
Those beliefs to which we cling tightly should be most suspect. The spiritual seeker, having learned the transformative power of love, is willing to bring new perspectives to daily interactions. When we shine the light of consciousness onto a situation, the situation is transformed. Even the light of a single candle transforms the darkness, allowing us to see more clearly. Each time we purposely shine the light of consciousness, whether directed within, towards another or outward to encompass the world, we add to the light which already exists.
The higher your vibration, the greater your perspective. If there is even one person, memory, political party, culture, business or entity in the world whom you have yet to forgive, there is more work to be done. Whenever you feel yourself being triggered, bring the light of consciousness to the present moment by asking:
What am I trying to learn?
How can I bring love to this situation?
Is there something within me being reflected? (If so, realize that it is coming to your attention because it is ready to be healed and transformed)
Every circumstance is a vehicle of your awakening. Don’t go back to sleep… freedom awaits.
Today my intention is to act with integrity, do my best and accept what is.
