We evolve each other.

How do we evolve each other?

We evolve each other by taking responsibility for our feelings.
We evolve each other by relearning trust.
We evolve each other by coming from a place of possibility.
We evolve each other by creating without evidence or proof.
We evolve each other by letting others make mistakes.
We evolve each other by withholding judgment and not making them real.
We evolve each other by sitting in the uncomfortable and being vulnerable so that others can see themselves.
We evolve each other by responding rather than reacting.
We evolve each other by seeing God within Self.
We evolve each other by choosing to see love.
We evolve each other through partnership and collaboration.
We evolve each other through bringing out our gifts.
We evolve each other by forgiving the ego.
We evolve each other….

Perception and distortion.

There will be people, who feel a sting of anger, resentment,or sadness toward you. They may blame you, project negative emotions at you and create that you are less than you are.

If we listened to everyone’s perception of who they think we are however, where would we be? Who would we be without their distorted perceptions of us? Who would we be without our own distorted perceptions and beliefs about us?

A wise teacher said, “No one will ever know you. They will only have their perception of you.” Considering that no one has ever walked the same exact path, who can know you better than you know yourself?

In order to live our most authentic self, one thing we have to do is let go of other people’s judgment of who they perceive us to be. We have to let go of their judgments, take responsibility for how being judged makes us feel. We have to continue loving and accepting ourselves, the way we are, even when others judge us and create us as less than we are. Consider it a lesson, that perhaps the person who judges is really a mirror of us judging ourself. Therefore, all judgement is an opportunity for us to learn to accept and love ourselves and whoever we are being, however we are showing up in that moment.

“Even though, people may judge me and not like me, I love and accept myself and I will continue to see them as love, dissolving this illusion that I am separate from them.”

"The Guest House" Poem by Rumi

This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival

A joy, a depression, a meanness
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor

Welcome and entertain them all
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Heaven and Earth meet at the heart.

Heaven and Earth meet at the heart.

My heart is open or at least I think. However, my body is simply a vessel, for which I must feed it good thoughts, food and water. Listen to how “I” feel. To share “my” body with a man in nothing without an open heart and yet, while it is open, the “I” discerns, waiting for a true merging, a merging with the divine, with a man who is full of grace, a man who shares a similar purpose.

I do not know yet what that purpose is but when he visits, it will become clearer. The self will look upon its Self, as a mirror with a purpose to serve, a balance with reason, focus, and clarity and a great love for Self. The merging may take time, but move and act without fear and with intuition…If you are not available, it is for good reason. Trust it.

Until then, work on Self, meaning focus on your own divine nature, your own intuitive knowing. Trust. Trust. Trust. Nothing is without reason.

Work on self is loving self, that is DIVINE. Love yourself. Worship your divine self. Worship your body. And continue following your intuition. Accept. Accept. Accept- yourself!

Where there are set backs, find purpose.
Where there seems to be a block, continue trusting and releasing.

When heaven and earth meet.

“When you believe that your abundance and safety originate in the external world- people, things, jobs, money- then you will not only become a “getter,” but also a fearful getter, since everything in the outer world of effects is limited and constantly changing.” Roger Teel.

As things “I” thought I owned get stolen, I can feel the remnant, fear- a thought– of a “worse” case scenario, a fear of losing more things which I “think” I will need to get. I am letting go, however it is a process and patience and trust is warranted.

Who would do such things as “steal”, but the ego, who created the belief that God is separate. It is the ego-ic machine that fears a lack of or doesn’t trust that would “steal.” At the same time, it is “my” ego that would have me believe that, in the first place, the bike was “mine”. Who would have me believe that I own anything but the ego?

This is not to justify theft or make it mean as if it does not matter. Perhaps, I created “my bike” to get stolen, as some would say; yet, this belief summons guilt that I am trying to free myself of. And to think of the person who stole from “me,” is not my business either. I ask, “free me from the conditions that would have me believe I know better than they.”

Ultimately, we choose constantly and there are always opportunities to forgive, to let go, and to see ONEness. When I was around 10, I was a kleptomaniac! Also, when it comes to my ego, it is a daily practice to be with it, nurture it and love it as a part of me, and without making it real! Still, there are times when I act from fear and I take the easy route, only to realize that it poisoned me with guilt and prevented me from loving myself.

As I opened the Course in Miracles before Sadhana, it reads:

Who can be born again in Christ but him who has forgiven everyone he sees or thinks of or imagines? Who could be set free while he imprisons anyone? A jailer is not free, for he is is bound together with his prisoner. He must be sure that he does not escape, and so he spends his time in keeping watch on him. The bars that limit him becomes the world in which his jailer lives, along with him. And it is on his freedom that the way to liberty depends for both of them.

Therefore, hold no one prisoner. Release instead of bind, for thus are you made free. The way is simple. Every time you feel a stab of anger, realize you hold a sword above your head. And it will fall or be averted as you choose to be condemned or free. Thus does each one who seems to tempt you to be angry represent your savior from the prison house of death. And so you owe him thanks instead of pain.” (Course in Miracles, 366)

Could this sword above our head, live the content of guilt and shame that we place upon ourselves and each other, that is the universal law of attraction. If I make “you” guilty, then I in turn am increasing my own guilt by making you or anything wrong. When we cling to and make wrong, we hurt ourselves and punish ourselves with the guilt, shame and fear- that the ego would have us feed upon, increasing the illusion that we are separate from each other, from God and our higher selves.

May true security be found through the realization that in every moment, God is ever-present, as a guide of the unconditional love that is our teacher.
