There are times we do not understand the actions of our friends and loved ones. This is fair to say. However, we can skip the step of judgment and go to the place of acceptance. Then, if we still feel that desire to judge, we might even ask questions that may bring us understanding. And when we find that we are still not yet on board we must respect that being in those chosen actions.
We may remain on opposite points of view and still choose respect that their choice is all a part of their journey. It is entirely possible that there is another part to this puzzle that still must be revealed to both parties. A little respect goes a long way to allowing understanding to shine. I’ve got this.
When I finally uncover the secrets that are hidden in my soul will I still like what I find? At this moment, of my evolution, I love the “me” that I am; yet I know that I still have so much work to do. Every day a new facet of my being catches the light and I breathe in the newer depth of understanding of who I am. I feel the alignment with my authentic self and I honor this gentle shift.
I am clear that there is so much more and I am excited to continue this journey. Though I must admit I still allow the frailty of my sensitive being to be undermined by those forces outside of myself. There can only be one Judge, one Master, one Supreme Force who can alter my way of being and that is I.
Now I remind myself that I have only had just a peak and each day I will allow myself yet one more peak. And when my soul is totally revealed, to me, I will make my transition I’ve got this.
Chances are, when I am meeting you for the first time, I am more impressed with how you are being than I am about what you are doing. Why? You are a human being and not a human doing. You may be doing great work and accomplishing great things in your life. However, if you are not being kind or considerate or loving as you are doing it, I may be feeling a misalignment with your integrity. This is not a judgment; it is more an observation of my own feelings in response to your way of being. We make choices every day about those things that we do. It only takes a moment to also choose powerful, positive ways to be. It can be the entire difference in how you are being received. Over all my first impression is based on your way of being and not what you are doing. After all you are a human being.
When I hold blame and judgment as a defense in any situation I am giving away my power. In this world, where so many of us are reliant on others to assist our forward path, it is imperative that I see precisely how I can affect this journey. The words that flow from my mouth must shift to a place of being accountable for those outcomes I am witnessing. What if I take a moment and fast-forward those words I may be going to use and see if they are in integrity with my soul’s desire. Do they contain judgment? Do they contain blame? Am I taking responsibility for any possible outcome? Ah! Now I see! Using a platform of unconditional love, beneath the words I choose, will quickly bring my soul’s desire to the forefront. This feels so much better. This is authentic for me. O.K. I’ve got this.
Often I have made life difficult, for myself, by being at effect of a situation and trotting down the “hopeless” trail. This is why I took time to identify an alternative by writing “The Hiccups of Life” in my recent blog. Just as a way of elaborating, on that subject, when a hiccup appears in my life all too often I have jumped into the fear-based thinking that carries a huge “what if” of the negative kind. All of these fears surround ego based and fear based thoughts. Now, when I allow that wonderful gift of breathing to become a conscious part of living, I soon find the “blockage” and I am given the clear understanding of what I have put in the way of right out-workings. If blame shows up as a part of the thinking I recognize that as fear-based and ego-based thinking. (For example, “Well, if she hadn’t done that….. Blah! Blah! Blah!) Breathing has so many wonderful qualities. It, not only, keeps me alive; it can be the difference of going to that judgment place or to the place of resolution. Being the only one responsible for my breathing, I get to create all the good in my life. So, why not make it easy? Why not choose to be responsible for my experience of life? Not a bad idea. I’ve got this.
