The way we process what we encounter determines the tone of the situation. There is actually no good/bad- right/wrong until these “Judgments” are assigned by the perceiver. One could say all the ills of the world only exist in the mind of the beholder. There are so many ways to view everything, so many opinions, so many spins on what we encounter that the line between good and bad is fluid and subjective. One mans junk is another mans treasure, and so on.
In The Bible Jesus instructs us: Matt 7: 1 Judge not lest ye be judged 2. For with what judgement ye judge, ye will be judged.
Simply put; by assigning a relative position to actions or situations, those assignments become factors in our lives. It is better to view all encounters as merely being components of our experience and take from them whatever nourishing lessons are held within. There is truly something to be said for looking at the world through “ROSE COLORED GLASSES”
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes. ~ Marcel Proust ~
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
With a positive outlook and love in your heart there is no need to live in a hostile world. The flavor of our life experience is completely defined by how we choose to interpret our encounters. All tragedy, catastrophe, abomination, perceived EVIL, has within it an opportunity for love, compassion, growth, and unity. We need to put on our Rose Glasses to see it!
As thinking beings we design the world we see with our thoughts and convictions. Our emotions emit vibrations that manipulate energy and either create, or draw to us conditions that match our vibration. That is why people that are always complaining, always negative, seeing the boogeyman behind every bush live lives filled with pain, grief, suffering and torment. Those positive individuals that are gifted at making LEMONADE, always appear to “get all the breaks”. That is not so! We all could be “Getting all the breaks” should we choose to see the benefit in everything.
Being the creative extensions of DIVINITY in form, we are the architects of reality. The cutsie little sayings, metaphors and aphorisms about positive living are not benign little sayings they are the LAWS OF LIFE! We are creating our individual experiences, as well as our collective ones. What we call reality is a compilation of the collaborative thoughts, beliefs, convictions, and emotions of all humanity unfolding on the canvass of our awareness as the artwork of GOD!
LIFE IS THE EXPANSION OF GOD IN FORM, DIRECTED BY THE HAND OF THE COLLECTIVE INDIVIDUATED REPRESENTATIONS OF DIVINE AWARENESS.
Choose wisely. Choose peace. Choose Love, and that is what the world you encounter shall be!
“A hostile person lives in a hostile world,
A loving person lives in a loving world.”
The Journey IS the Destination.
