“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” ~Richard Bach
The Ego uses old ideas and patterns to challenge us. Let the Deconstruction begin. Suffering is a sign that freedom is “coming towards me.” Obstacles EVOLVE at the same rate a Human EVOLVES. (Really? – – Yes, really!) It’s called transparency – and there is a risk in being transparent. We are seen for who we really are – – and that – – is where “my” True Power resides. When a person stops worrying about what others “think” – it’s easier to see “I AM Enough.” For today – watch to see if the “same-old-same-old” reappears. It’s NOT the SAME “same-old-same-old.” It’s the Ego trying to create a distraction. Ahhhh, now I SEE! All that’s happening is a Soul-Shadow is rising to the surface. Witness it. Yes – it might feel scary – it might feel like getting turned upside-down with your A$$ in the air – but stay steady – stay neutral – stay true to Soul-Self. It’s a passing thing. Be yourself – Be your own Shero – Be kind to yourself – Be courageous. We are ALL rowing the same boat – whether we realize it or now! Be generous with compassion and empathy for others. No one on the planet has access to the MASTER PLAN. We are all safe. All is well! ❤
We have Guardian Angels whether we can see them or not! Say “thank you!”
What is it? More famously known as the Epimenides paradox, this is one of the oldest known paradoxes having been first suggested circa 600BC. Greek Philosopher Eubulides of Miletus postulated “A man says that he is lying. Is what he says true or false?” The basic premise of this paradox is – “This statement is false.”
Wait, What? If “This statement is false” is true, then “This statement is false” is true. Therefore “This statement is false” must be false. The hypothesis that “This statement is false” is true leads to the conclusion that “This statement is false” is false, which is a contradiction.
To put it in simpler terms, I will assign the coefficient of (A) to the statement “This statement is false” which gives us:
If (A) is true, then (A) is true. Therefore (A) must be false. The hypothesis that (A) is true leads to the conclusion that (A) is false, which is a contradiction. Think that is confusing? We are just getting started!
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 MY “right 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 sidesPLEASE. Thank you Ms. Shelley! All is well! ❤
