„It’s not a matter of what happens, but how we choose to respond that determines our level of consciousness. Whether able to act courageously in the face of despair, or continually shut down whenever change arrives, self-love is always the answer. It may not lessen the pain or make reality more preferable, but it will always give you everything you need to be the unwavering support, unlimited compassion, and irrefutable source of forgiveness absent from the past.
From honoring the one who needs to know every detail about the future before stepping forward, to embracing the one who only knows doubt, and even acknowledging the one who yearns for love but has no idea how to feel worthy enough to receive it, each and every experience offers countless opportunities to deepen our relationship with our hearts as a gateway into the oneness of Source energy.
Rather than attempting to embrace the past, what if you took the time to honor the one it happened to? Instead of trying to passively accept the injustices of life, why not passionately acknowledge the authenticity within you that cannot be ok when anyone is denied, persecuted, harmed, alienated, shamed or judged for any reason?
What if you didn’t blame yourself for being so sensitive, but cherished how naturally open you are to receiving the gift of life, no matter how daunting or delicious any moment seems? Even when you are unable to love, simply resting in the blessing of “May this moment help me learn to love as never before” inspires milestones of growth that uplift your experience, while energetically assisting in the transformation of others.
When the world seems cruel, we become more caring. When witnessing the unthinkable, we respond with greater thoughtfulness. When the world denies its pain, we dare to turn towards it. When life appears to be at its darkest hour, we shine our lights to brighten each perspective. Whatever arises, love that. This is the way of the new spiritual paradigm.”
