Thought for today: It’s okay to be upset, it’s okay to express yourself. Angst is a complex emotion; but IS a natural part of finding your way back to center.
Issues come about when you get stuck in a repressive motion and are unable or unwilling to push through to the other side where love resides. Issues come about when you allow your misconceptions of hurt to morph into pride, humiliation and embarrassment.
These emotional leeches latch onto your ego, feeding on you.
If you are weak, their need for sustenance overrides your power of forgiveness. You become starved and when they offer you a meal of bitterness with a side of hatred and revenge, you lap it up willingly.
They laugh at your inability to value yourself and their power to distract you from the God in you.
You swallow and regurgitate their ready made nonsense so often that you don’t realize this has become your primary source of nutrition; you can’t even see the affects on your body, mind and consciousness because when you look in the mirror it is distorted with blood red images of it, that, him, her or them and they.
That is the distraction which will suffocate your soul and kill your spirit.
The next time you find yourself “still upset” about another person’s actions; the next time you find yourself plotting, confronting, gossiping, or just burning inside, ask yourself how you can bring value to your situation.
Concentrate on what can you do to find the lesson, the light, the peace in the process; do it, then start heading back to your center.
It’s a beautiful view from here.
Take this into consideration: You can be so engrossed and mired in your present situation that you are missing the joy waiting on the sidelines for you to be done with the none of the sense to which you are clinging.
You just missed your blessing.
Breathe easy love and get through the emotional rollercoaster by riding out the initial sting of pain. Don’t hold the handles, throw your hands up and experience it for what it is.
Then get your Self Centered.
There is someone out there today who will need the wisdom you’ve taken away from the foolishness that binds you; but you cannot give what you do not have.
The cipher rolls on.
Peace and Blessings, this is the SoKey Experience.
