Some people will choose to be right than to be happy. What choices do you tend to make when faced with opposite viewpoints and contradictions? In our meditation today, the oracle cards brought up the topic of win win and how to create that world for where we are designing a beautiful life for yourself and others.
Change is inevitable and with change comes contradiction with others and it is an opportunity to investigate our own inner battles. A personal struggle I have been dealing with is the fact that I wake up in the morning each day and my body has much more aches and pains than before. It is a body that needs more TLC now and I have to make peace with the idea that my body is not the same as it was five years ago and it will change again in the next five years. Applying the same metrics to my body today that I did in the past, will trigger my body to resist in some way. Instead, I practice softening towards acceptance, kindness, compassion, and gratefulness. Some days it works and some days my ego gets the best of me and throws those thoughts out the window. The internal struggle is always present.
Releasing old notions, past experiences is a detox process mentally, emotionally and affects us physically. This process I believe is the renewal of ones old self into a new self and the evolution of the human life. I believe our inner struggles manifest in this realm in the form of others as our mirror. In your everyday living, bring awareness to the choices that you are making and if it is serving your best self or not.
Here is a story that I found helpful for my self evolution.
'One day a man said to God, “God, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.” God showed the man two doors. Inside the first one, in the middle of the room, was a large round table with a large pot of stew. It smelled delicious and made the man’s mouth water, but the people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. God said, “You have seen Hell.”
Behind the second door, the room appeared exactly the same. There was the large round table with the large pot of wonderful stew that made the man’s mouth water. The people had the same long-handled spoons, but they were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The man said, “I don’t understand.”God smiled. It is simple, he said, Love only requires one skill. These people learned early on to share and feed one another. While the greedy only think of themselves.' theboundspirit.com
