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 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 94: Next Steps

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as who you become by achieving your goals.”  Thoreau
Where do you feel “pressured” to fit inExpansion – Contraction –  Transformation.  Point of Balance.  Spirit experiences life in the Sacred Temple called “my body.”  When emotions gain momentum – managing impulsive/compulsive actions becomes difficult – especially when it’s emotions that have been suppressed.  Emotions are usually attached to another human being.  For today – take a good long hard look at relationship attachments.  Be totally honest with Self.  Life is lived one day at a time.  Be your own Witness.  Forgive Self when forgiving others.  For those trying to “let go” or “cut the cord” – try the following.  Sit still – get quiet inside.
Repeat several times each day for the next 28 days:
“I release (first and last name) unto God. He/She is in his/her true place at all times. I am free, and he/she is free. I now decree that my words go forth into Infinite Mind and it brings it to pass. It is so.”
Let’s look out for one another.  All is well!  ❤

Step 88: Sunday Blessings

“The trouble is, you think you have time.”  ~Buddha
When we’re hungry or feel like we’re starving – we’ll gorge on what’s in front of us.  We end up overstuffed – undernourished – dissatisfied.  The Soul needs HIGH quality food.  When the Soul detoxes it sheds old thoughts, feelings, pain and struggle. Old memories are departing the Soul. Where am I out of integrity?

  1. What’s chronic, repetitive or inflamed in my inner or outer life?
  2. Where am I not feeling what I feel – knowing what I know – saying what I believe or doing what feels most right?
  3. What would radical simplicity look like for me?
  4. How do I keep it lean and clean? 
  5. What needs to be cleaned up so I can be free to do and offer my best work in the world?
​All is well!  ​<3
