Step 132: Ethical Center (Context & Contrast)

Back in the day – America had only 3 TV Networks (ABC-CBS-NBC).  We ALL watched the “same news.”  Now we have 500 cable channels – a plethora of Apps and and endless social streaming.  People NICHE watch news that agrees with their own “belief-space.”  Right or wrong – we love absolutes.  Right or wrong for the “masses” might not be MYright or wrong.”  Instead of “right and wrong” – – focus on “is this YES or NO for me?”  Instead of “right or wrong” – the question is “is this an Honorable Path and does it have Integrity?”  The paradox – we experience Life “from all sides” (we haven’t figured it out yet – we will) and there are many more sides to the coin than “heads or tails.”  Whatever we see “out there” that bothers/concerns/disgusts is a reflection of “who I used to be.”  The hardest bridge a person will burn is the “bridge” between “who I am” and “who I thought I was.   Thought = Belief!  Focus on what’s working – not what’s NOT working!  Be kind.  Be considerate.  Be open to a different dialogue – different conversation – and above all – consider ALL sides PLEASEThank you Ms. Shelley!  All is well!  ❤

Step 128: Re-Vision

“A Woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself. ” ~ Maya Angelou

Relationships offer an individual a “mirror” through “other” to experience “my-Soul-Self.”  Integrity is THE currency.  Relationship is the space between the Creator and the Created (my Soul).  Think back to January 1, 2019.  Relationships often bring to the surface our earliest patterns of Re-Lating – “shame, guilt and abandonment.”   We’re often considered a “failure” if we don’t know what we’re doing.  That’s our Culture.  For today – consider that death is necessary for anything NEW to emerge.  Consider that “doubt and uncertainty” can be powerful allies – when we are NOT influenced by our Culture. Slow down.  Re-Imagine relationship with another who is “different.”   How boring life would be – if everyone was just like “me.”  The question for today is – – – “do I still want to be dealing with this in January 2020?”  It could be a “watershed moment.”  Adjust as needed.  Everything is right on time!  All is well! ❤

 

 

Step 121: Necessity – Mother of Invention

“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”  ~George R.R. Martin

Here’s an experiment to see how much “baggage” is being carried.  Find a backpack and a bag of potatoes.  Make a list of all the people you are angry with – you know – those people who did you wrong.  For each person – take a potato and carve their name and the date of the transgression on it.  Put it in the backpack.  Put the backpack on and you are allowed to take it off ONLY when you go to bed.  Eventually the potatoes will get heavier and start to stink.​ See how many potatoes are still in the bag on July 4, 2019.  Today recognize the baggage being carried – and hopefully – by July 4th – the backpack will be much lighter.  The 2 dates are connected.  All is well!   ❤

Step 103- Contemplation

“You are now seen.  You have exposed yourself and you cannot hide who you truly are.”  ~I-Ching #20

 

Reality is setting in.  You are the Observer now – you cannot be covert.  You are fully seen for the truth of what and who you are.  Be humble.  Why do we “stray from the truth?”  As an Observer we cannot help but be Observed.  When you HEAR the negative inner voice – it will try to convince you that you have been incorrect/inaccurate/wrong in your actions, behaviors and thinking.  Learn to recognize this voice – it originates from the place where the lies we tell ourselves about “myself” are born.  When we CHANGE the words in “my thinking” about myself  – the words lose their power and cannot take “me” off the “my path” as has happened in the past.  Pay attention to the “Inside-Voice” and the words being used.  We can heal or hurt ourself. It’s a personal choice.  All is well!  ❤

 

Step 96: Right-On-Time

“Convergence – (n) – the act of moving toward union; coordinated movement of the two eyes so that the image of a single point is formed on corresponding retinal areas; independent development of similar characters (as of a bodily structure of unrelated organisms or cultural traits) often associated with similarity of habits or environment.”

 

Let’s celebrate our mistakes.  “I AM the meaning in my life.”  Reality checkpoint.  ​Hypothesis or Hypocrisy.  Substance or Illusion.  Ideal or Practical Reality.  Rams and Goats.  Insecurity creates doubt.  Molehills can turn into mountains.  We are each tasked to now work at a pace that is required – not easy in the best of times.  Healing starts with self-forgiveness.  The question is “which pieces do I pick up” in the aftermath of Humpty-Dumpty’s great fall?  Avoid myth.  Investigate.  Make no assumptions.  Balance – Balance – Balance.  We’re right on timeLet’s look out for one another.  All is well.   ❤

Step 72: Change the Filter – Add New Vibration

“Life is like riding a bicycle.  To keep your balance you have to keep moving. ”  ~Einstein (Happy Birthday Mr. Einstein)
Measure twice – cut once.”  Illumination.  Clarity.  Adjustment.  Words ARE power.  The spoken word is based on an intention (what do you want the outcome to be?).  They reflect what’s here OR create a new light.  It’s all perception.  Perception is subjective.  Words spoken today come back to us around April 12th/13th.  Expect the unexpected.  Objective reality is hard to prove, since we each perceive reality through our own personal filters.  What happens today – take it to the bank!  Keep moving.  All is well!   ❤

Step 51: Balance

cognitive dissonance (noun, psychology) – the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change.  All is well! ❤
