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!  ❤

“Though the longing may ache, the cosmic enactment of lost and found is not error but holy, not a mistake but benediction, not evidence that you have failed, but that you have been heard.  A theater of the sacred.”  ~Matt Licata

The fog is starting to lift.  Expect insight.  A teacup can ONLY hold a cup of tea – not an ocean.  Write down new ideas that come out of nowhere. Make a plan. Follow through.  Time – effort – patience required.  Mixed messages?  Despite what appears to “BE” – humans always find “the way.” Wrongs can be righted. Indeed things are equal and “change” is the only “constant” in Life.  Seek beauty beyond reasonAll is well!   ❤
