Empathy is an interesting world, often mistaken for something quite different; unhealthy boundaries, and not knowing where we end and the other begins.
I think of how often I remained connected to hurtful people when I was younger (and others to me, when I was hurtful) because I imagined myself empathic. And I was! But that didn’t mean that I had to endure their madness. Our empathic
There are two ways that we respond to hurt and resentment that we experience in our material life. We either learn not to behave in a way that causes hurt to others as we know how it feels or we become bitter and do unto others the pain we experience, in exactly or worse way after careful panning and manipulation. The former lightens our own energy field and is a step toward spiritual maturity
All relationships work better when there is an “equal” exchange of energy. When a relationship drains someone, for whatever reason, there is an imbalance of energy. And this can only lead to a chain of power games. When manipulation and one-upmanship rear their ugly heads, people play external games to gain external power and feel internally complete. Thus is attention diverted from the real
Fear takes us away from the present moment and makes us worry about situations which exist only in our thoughts. Negative energy attracts more negative energy and the situations are then amplified in our mind leading to more fear.
Our body, mind and emotions respond to that fear and at some moment even merge and we BECOME fear. The body/mind is on autopilot mode waiting for the worse to happen.
This year I (continually) find myself returning to moments of choices I’ve faced in days past, when the making of them (or their making of me) swept away all the foundations I thought had been such sure footing and left me literally and figuratively floating. Once upon a time the aftermaths of these moments left me dwelling and running my fingers along the edges of raw scar tissue and all
A day started with gratitude, faith and smiles instills positivity in our energy system that gives us inner strength to face the challenges for the day! Just for today, release the heavy burden of guilt and embrace the lightness of your heart. Be in joy, be joy. Our negative experiences are intended to weaken our ego and bring us into gratitude, humility, and even surrender. This is a key step in
There are only ever going to be two certainties in life: that it is entirely and altogether crazy uncertain, and that it will someday come to an end. In death there is the comfortable certainty of eternity; you will be gone and for you, nothing will ever change again. So why, in this handful of decades on a speck of dust floating around a bobbing candle flame, would you want to settle into
Impatience projects WORRY and worry is a waste of our precious time and life. Impatience projects negative energy and negative intention (yes worry is an intention) out into the Universe and into your personal energy field... actually blocking what you are waiting to receive.
Patience teaches. Love is required for patience. And Patience also is required love. there no escaping either. Love of
The definition of Karma is "the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences" or the short version: cause and effect which moves your destiny in past, present, and future lifetimes. You are in control of your destiny. When you choose the "positive" karmic path, you operate with integrity, honesty, and correct action
History repeats itself! Why? Because the ego based mentalities, attitudes, behaviors, habits and actions are followed and continued from one generation to another. When we quote ego based reactions from History and follow them, we reinforce their energy and give them power which are then followed by future generations.
Response from any form of ego will surely have consequences which are also ego
