If you were to walk to the water’s edge and peer in, would you be pleased with what you see? Is the reflection staring back at you someone you love and feel good about? If not, it is time to get to work and learn how to be with who you are. Self judgment can be the worse judgement of all. The old story of I’m too fat, not pretty enough, not good enough. I think we have probably all run these tapes through our head many times during our journey. They are so self-destructive and yet we seem to glue ourselves to them out of fear of who we will be without that those stories, much like the child who will welcome negative attention over no attention at all. All of these old tapes are part of the old world and we certainly don’t want to drag them along with us into the new world. Our time has come to finally understand how magical and powerful and wonderful we are in every way imaginable.
Recent days have been action packed for many who are trying to get right with themselves. We know we no longer want to be a part of the old world with all of its heaviness and negativity, so if we wish to be a part of the new world we must adjust our perceptions to fit in. There is no judgment in the new world, only love and compassion and acceptance. What kind of life would we be living if we didn’t like the person we were living inside of? What a nightmare to be trapped inside a body of someone you did not feel love for. We need to learn to be our own best friends. What we look like has nothing to do with who we are as a person, it’s who we are on the inside that matters. It will be hard work un-training our minds from judgments but it is absolutely necessary we do this.
There are a few core traits we need to embrace and the rest will fall into place if we commit to them. Be loving and kind, do not judge, watch carefully what you say and think, reach out to others, be truthful, be respectful, live by good morals and feel gratitude for all life. If you set these challenges into place and live by them everyday, life will flow through you easily and not around you. It is such an honor to set these traits before us and promise ourselves we will embrace them and live by them. It fills us with great pride inside to accomplish this. Imagine the world if everyone were living this way. Peace is clearly possible under such circumstances. It just takes each and every one of us to accept the challenge and live by it.
I believe a great deal of the unrest and unhappiness the world has been experiencing comes from a world of people who have lost their moral compass and are lacking pride in how they live their lives. We really did fall down to the bottom of the barrel but if we swim hard to the top we can recover and rebuild our lives into ones with meaning and purpose. We not only stopped caring about others (the environment included) we stopped caring about ourselves. We can see the error of our ways now, it has become blatantly obvious in a world so rife with chaos and despair. It is not so frightening to observe this now knowing there is a way out of it. We have our GPS strapped to us now and if each of us begins to turn themselves around and live by higher standards, others will do the same and the snowball will roll quickly down the hill. Make a commitment with yourself to learn to love your reflection by becoming a loveable person. The world needs us all to take action!
Blessings to us all,
