SELF AWARENESS As you journey with yourself, get to know yourself better, be kinder to yourself, more open, more generous, tolerant, compassionate with yourself, so you become that way with others. It is a natural evolutionary process. "As ye sow, so shall ye reap."
Through this process barriers can be broken down, conflict resolved and communication become authentic. Win/Win is possible when Right/Wrong are not part of equation.
THE SHADOW Then we point finger at others, when we label them Bad or Evil...we have missed point. By focusing outwards on how others seem to be, we don’t look within. We don’t acknowledge shadow parts of us. The parts that can be spiteful, vengeful, angry, dismissive, shut down, rejecting. We like to think that we would never behave like "they" have behaved. But...there is always a potential killer in us. A mother to protect her child is a classic example.
Often we dress our shadow in a mantle of self-righteousness and self justification. Worse, we just believe that we are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT and all views opposed to ours are WRONG and BAD. Then Love is lost and we are in a contracted place.
INNER PEACE = WORLD PEACE These are turbulent and frightening times...but as with all adversity it contains opportunity for us to learn and grow. Take time to look within yourself. "Know Thyself" said Oracle at Delphi- ancient wisdom that is even more important in our modern world. Change is happening at an incredible rate...let’s make sure that it’s powerful change to create a world that works for everyone.
