It is interesting if one stops and thinks about all the judgements we make in an hour, let alone in a day or year. I should have ……fill in the blank. You should have ……fill in the blank. . . . That’s dumb. . . . That’s smart. . . . I will act sad so I can have another’s attention.
We learn to do this from when we were little. Our self talk can be crazy with judgements. Being aware of this is a move toward freedom. How about this…..get out of the ‘box’ called judgement of ourselves and others, and even virtues are boxes if you give it some thought. Instead of doing, take time to just Be. Be love, Be compassion, Be the light in a dark world. In other words — do what we are here to do, bring the love of God, the compassion of God and the light of God to where you are now. Be who you Really Are.
If you were the only person on this earth how would you be? Judgement-less! You would not have learned to be judgmental. Judgements are illusions we buy into. Look at it. Let it go. Feel your joy in your heart chakra. Your heart is where your joy resides. Go within and find it.
From my joyous heart to yours.
Camel Jam is a painting of the camel rides available to tourists when visiting the Great Pyramids in Cairo. Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas and is available for purchase thru my website.
In a way, this painting is indicative of the paths we have in life, some entering and those leaving. What matters most is how the time is spent between birth and death, or what some call the dash. While life can be somewhat difficult to navigate, keeping one’s heart and mind looking forward with love and kindness, without regard to what is in one’s past that could shadow everything in the present with regret or pain is possible. Forgiveness is key. Forgive others and also remember to forgive yourself. Your ‘dash’ can be a lighter journey when love, kindness, compassion and tolerance, and also forgiveness is what you carry with you. Make this year’s journey filled with light, love, and blessings. I hope you can be this to those you meet.
I had an amazing day today. The tow truck arrived just in time for me to be able to take the other car to an exercise class. I asked Spirit for this and was blessed. I went antique browsing with my neighbor, and it always amazes me what I find when we shop together! We discovered a sweet, comfortable coffee and yogurt shop. I found items I had been searching for the past two weeks, and knew they were out there, I could feel it, and anticipated finding them. Well, today was the day I got them!!! And all was within my means.
So what is the lesson in all this? Believe. Believe in your power to create what you desire, and approach life with an expectant and appreciative heart. It is written that all is waiting to fulfill our deepest desire. We put out thoughts and words about what we will eventually receive. The circle really does come round. What you give you will get back. It is a law of the universe. Ask yourself what you are actually asking to happen. Listen to what you are putting forth in action, speech, and thoughts. It does matter.
So, be kind, generous as your means allow, pay it forward with love and gentleness.
Be ready to be amazed!
As the year approaches a close and a new chance to start afresh is ever clearer, find the time to ponder your contribution to an increasingly peaceful, kinder, empathetic self. Look deep inside and see your worth, your beauty, your astonishing knowledge of how we are all connected, and as one is raised in divine vibration, all are affected. Take the time to meditate in prayer to find your way to help make this world a far better place than it is today. Peace be with you, Peace be with you, Peace be with you. It is so, It is so, It is so.
