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 3 – Re-Imagine

To optimize your alignment for bringing a dream into realization, translate your dream from images into values and feelings, and inhabit the values and feelings of your dream.  When your visualize, contemplate or meditate on your dream, or when you are communicating your dream to others, ask yourself, ‘What part of myself am I seeking to express by living this dream?  What aspects of myself will gain realization?  What values will I have an opportunity to explore?  What will I bring to life?  How will I feel living in this dream?  How will I grow?’

These questions will enable you to identify the values inherent to your dream.  It is these values, rather than the images you have dressed them in, that you are longing to inhabit.  And it is inhabiting these values that aligns you to magnetize your dream into reality.  Once you identify the values and find the feelings that will come to life in the realization of your dream, inhabit them deeply every time you visit your dream.  By doing so you generate a magnetic field for dream realization that is profoundly more powerful than the field generated by visualizing your dream from an emotional distance.”
