The easiest way to get past a perceived error is to embrace it and come at it from a different direction. Do not waste time stewing about it, reinforcing a negative mind set. HUG that event, and move on it with a positive attitude, break it down and transform it.
Being vulnerable is a scary thing. Opening oneself up to further damage is very intimidating. However, this is opportunity for inner strength to be built, as well as opportunity for another to either participate in rectification, or further damage. Either way, karma works and will increase ten-fold, for all parties.
Let your peaceful words be heard!
Thoughts, actions, words can reflect so much, be the change you wish to see in this world, speak it, think it, do it and manifest it into reality. Collective consciousness rising.
Unlocking the potential which dwells within can seem impossible. It may not even be clear what the potential is, or what direction it should reach for. There is always a force that we may not be aware of though, which pushes and pulls at our heart, it assists us in creating certain situations, and ending others.
This dance we call life is something we never do alone, although it may feel that way at times.
When a situation comes to an end, open eyes to see what is there, for there will be a new beginning, a new opportunity. Do not be attached to what it will look like, or what it shows up as … whatever form it takes, it will be exactly what you need, exactly what all involved need.
Really see the shift for what it is. The experiences that stem from it will enrich not only the life of the one partaking, but also of the lives touched by this flow of change. It’s beautiful.
Suffering … it happens to us all. The causes are many, perhaps it is a desire for something, and an attachment to getting what is perceived as a want or need. In order to ease this suffering, a change is needed, a change in the ideas of what we want, or need. The method of this change is in the eightfold path.
I love being around people who create a spark in my mind. I walk away from meetings such as the most recent, and my thoughts gravitate to what is happening in my world … in day to day life.
I am grateful, for it is these moments that provide an expansion, a possibility for my “box” to get larger.
There is a lot of talk on remaining grounded, it is difficult to do so. The world seems to be in chaos, it is a reflection of the hearts of humanity.
Working to bring calm to our own awareness will allow a peaceful flow of energies to join us in the outside world. It all begins in our heart, moves to the mind, and comes forth in action.
In the city, energies collect and become charged with whatever is going on in minds. It can get so thick at times it is difficult to breathe. It really is no wonder there are so many folks who just explode on each other. Many people haven’t the opportunity to get out of town and just step away from it all for a time.
It is very important to create a sacred space, wherever time is spent, even if it is only a little corner in the room. Following are several images on what a sacred space means for a few people, and perhaps might be utilized to spark your own creativity for that little haven you’ve been needing.
Whatever this space may be for you, the wonders of healing can be had when items cherished are placed about and time is spent there, if only for a short time per day, or even just when you have time.
Take time for you. When you bring mind and body into harmony, it is much easier to participate in the dealings of the world.
Many will lash out in spitting anger, they will outright attack you. I see it every day, personally, and I know you do as well. Hold on, it will smooth out, it will take a little time yet, however time is a gift.
Time is the gift given to those who have chosen to hold on to pain and suffering, and who choose, even if not consciously, to continue the cycle. There is still opportunity to turn it around.
Active participation in what is wanted is the key to positive change. The energies spent being shocked and appalled and voicing opinions as such, are better spent on working toward a peaceful, connected, and honorable reality. Take that power which is yours and apply it to the future you wish to see. Start with your heart, pay attention to the smile you offer people, instead of letting it fall from your face as soon as the walk away, hold it, hold it in place for just another moment and consider the conversation, the connection.
Soon you will see that wearing a smile does something to the mind, it shifts thought patterns from a somewhat dark nature to an upward lift, something brighter, a spring might even form in the steps you take.
This power is in you. No one need give permission for you to gather this ingrained wonder which resides in your inner most being and utilizing it for the benefit of the future. I am not speaking of monetary gain or title, I am speaking of self value … what do you think when you consider your life? Do you find yourself on the defensive? Or are you embracing every moment, every opportunity for growth?
It is not necessary to convince another that you are worthy. When you are certain of your value in your mind, in your heart, life flows … what comes is meant to be, and what does not come is a hint of better things on the horizon.
Know that it is going to be alright.
All things needed for the benefit of alllife are coming.
You’re changing. Not changing like small. You’re changing because you’ve truly outgrown some of your situations of the old.
When you want to go back there, in “I need to heal and move past it”, it even feels that it’s already done — that there is no more for you to do in the spaces of releasing but only residues, small weeds.
There is a feeling of “I’ve done the work now”.
But, you’re scared. Scared because change is scary and also because you were used to finding your grounding, your base… in Suffering.
You had found Yourself, your gifts, your relief almost, your name, your swords, your Medicine… in coming back from disappointment, dishonor and pain, in finding a way to come back to life after the trauma — you’ve found your True Self in building the strength to recover from the turbulences of evolving and from the scars of the heartbreak.
You’re wondering How life works if its base, its ground isn’t anymore in finding the strength to leave, or in unveiling the medicine to recover.
You had been used to dealing with suffering so well, so beautifully, you even started to make art out of it… so somewhere, you even thought that Life was It.
You’ve been emptied out now, even of the breaking. So, what are you going to do with life?
How do we play with sunny flowers, again?
How do we have fun again?
How do we make love, again, with someone that feels right?
How do we do life when life is Happy?
Be still. Just know that energetically, you’re Back. Don’t search in order to fill the void, or because you feel that there is nothing within. It’s not true.
It’s just that the carpet under your feet is removed, because you’ve outgrown it, because that carpet was your Recovery.
Just acknowledge that the release has happened, and that this is, strangely, the roots of your discomfort – you were sick somewhere, now you aren’t anymore so you’re wondering what will be the new goal of your Story.
You’re about to be back as a very different You.
As for the future, nothing for now. Know that Life will move you, inspire you, wake you up with something new, ignite the spark again deep in your heart — know that it’s Her job, and right now yours is just to Acknowledge and Be.
Be still and let life find you on its own terms… now that you’re ready.
