The most important aspect of awakening is observing ourselves. You are not asked to be any different or hide your emotions, merely to notice how you react and think while you objectively view your personal patterns of behavior. Shining the light of consciousness transforms that which is observed.
When we begin to understand how our beliefs are played out repeatedly – how we think we should be or how others should be – and see clearly without judgment, the layers of illusion begin to dissolve.
Demanding that others be anything different from what they are blocks our ability to interact with an open heart or develop any meaningful, authentic connection with them.
Everyone wishes to be heard, understood, accepted and appreciated and we must be the change we wish to see. Begin within and expand these precious gifts outward. Your awakening consciousness will not only transform your vision but all of your interactions as well.
Today my intention is to be love.
