True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. ~ Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Lately everyone is dispensing either light or dark energy like camel spit. We want to shake off the old shadow by commanding it to release, be gone, let go, get out, and now! We are throwing out light like laser beams and trying to manipulate the shadow side like changing the oil in a car, but (I know what an annoying word,) butt-but the first way scars the receiver and the other leaves both parties tarred without the feathers decorating it.
It’s not difficult being an enlightened individual. Many are. They aren’t advertised on TV or in the daily news but they are there. Being a Noble being (as the Zen say) is as easy as accepting that you are.
Acceptance may be the first stage of releasing any miasma, implant, cord or device displacing us. Okay to use woman’s analogy. Think of when we are cleaning out our closets. There is this amazing jacket—a true art piece that when you wore it in your 20s you would turn heads and get compliments but now 20 years later it feels like you are wearing your daughter’s clothes. Well like that orange jacket covered in white nacre first you put it in the back of the closet, and then it gets hung like artwork on the wall until it is released to the woman’s shelter as a donation.
We must accept that which we already are before we amend the condition we are in. For example, so what that I have a crooked face and my mind works so fast when creating a whole picture. I accept it. Once accepted I can amend and take my time so my smile doesn’t shut my left eye making my face look like a smirk or Stink Eye in the film Juno. I can slow down my thoughts so I can assist others in understanding my vision or me. Then they can join with me or I can help them with their creations.
We have been led to believe that what we produce defines us when it’s more like what we create that defines us. When we accept ourselves and know what it is that would make us happy—that truly resonates with our purpose then our life will begin to change in honest and abundant ways.
Yes first we may need to get rid of all our mis-creations—our bad choices however afterward the light and beauty of our creative thoughts and actions will start manifesting in wonderfully magical ways. It is then that our life starts to fit us to a T. We are the only ones that can do that for us.
So let’s grab a cushion and sit down and visualize what would make us happy. Let’s leave ourselves alone. We are fine. Accept all that we are —all of it and that judgmental side we are always trying to release will notice that our sense of discernment is one of our greatest assets.
Once we do emotional inventory and see what we have created we can amend those creations and make sure they are designed to our liking.
Wow, look at us!
I love how you put yourself together today! You look fabulous better yet, you look authentically YOU!
