Try to stay centered in love/light as much as possible....life is so beautiful when I am "there"....for me & everyone around me. When I get "off-track", bring myself back to center as quickly as I can. Forgive myself :)). Constant awareness/observation/practice.......
I too have difficulty with the "far right" judgemental stance, but "fanatics" are on the "left" as well (altho I can get less upset with them :)). I calm myself by knowing they are where they are in their evolvement & all I can do Is shine Light on them & try not to get"reactive". So, I try to use it as a spiritual practice for myself. _/\_
Wow! Brilliant piece of writing! Just so brilliant!!!
To me, one word is being on the spiritual path..... L O V E......in thought, word & deed.....always/often.
so appreciate this piece of writing . Thank you. Will share it.
My attachment to "resisting allowing something" brings it to me repeatedly until I "face my fear". I finally "surrendered" & was "gifted" by the experience I so dreaded! The Universe is a patient teacher. Grateful.
I basically feel it is "inside/out", but my "inside" was formed by all the experiences on the path, so, surely my surroundings were part of the "whole shebang". :))
I feel "most alive" when I am in my Light-center experiencing oneness with another through kindness.
On a camping trip a long time ago, I was very frightened by my surroundings one dark night when my flashlight stopped working half-way down the hill. From that disharmony with my surroundings I was forced to face my fear, which I agonizingly did, & was blessed with the gift of increased strength & confidence . Grateful for the gift from disharmony w/my surroundings .....boy, did I feel "alive" that night. (& elated when I was back in our tent, snugly cozy in my sleeping bag !! Namaste _/\_
When I awaken each day I center myself in Light & decide that I will stay centered, choose to be happy, share my light with others, forgive myself if I get off-center & address any "difficulty" that may present, with light. By making this Conscious effort , I experience greater equanimity & joy. You can "choose". This has changed my existence.
Excellent, insightful, "creative" & thought provoking . Well done. Thank you. Each of us unique & marching to our own beat. United by oneness at the same time.....different branches of the same tree, each blooming as it will.
