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 78: All Things Equal

“Dying is a wild night and a new road.”  ~Emily Dickinson
Momentum Rising.  Spiritual Medicine.  Open Road.  Turn of the wheel.  Seasons change.  Moments and Milestones. God isn’t coming down from the mountain to save anyone – but God has invited everyone to “climb the mountain – because the view is awesome AF.”  All that is ever asked of humans is to just show up for life – because – whether we can see it or not – Life shows up for us everyday.  Today is a good day to start living!  Show Up!  All is well!  ❤
