I turn my will and
my life over to the care of the Higher Power of my understanding." (This
means G-d, Jesus, the Higher Self... or any felt
experience of this Higher Power as you know it.)
in the BOOK:
finally realized that I do not have to enlighten anyone. Turning
my life over to my Higher Power now includes turning over my loved ones
and all of their words, actions, and attitudes as well. Allowing
my loved ones to take their own decisions and learn from their mistakes
gives them the gifts of dignity and gives me the gift of serenity.
When I am not spending my energy trying to figure out other
people's lives I have the insight to make the everyday decisions
that bring me peace."
like the saying: "What you think of me is none of my
business...and what I think of you is none of your business. (Unless we
have agreed to discuss this without judgment, blame or the belief in ourvictimhood.)
I gave my students
a homework assignment from what I call
practice for "Spiritual Olympics". I want to share
with you what I received from Mandy F.
night as part of my meditation I had this conversation with myself.
do not agree with me? When
I allow your disagreement to bother me, to take powerful energy
away from my being, what I am really saying is that I place a higher
value on you, and your opinion then on me and mine.
if you do not agree with me. Does this make me wrong? NO! Does
this make you wrong. NO!
you realize sweet angel...stand in your truth. It is beautiful
and so are you. You are not like everyone else, and that is the truth.
Why if you want to seek your unique beauty, why then do you hold
onto the false and disheartening belief that others should agree with
is an inconsistency here that if looked at would offer you such freedom.
do not like me? So
be it!. It is not my business what you think about me. Can I accept
that I am your mirror and you are mine in this moment? I am
mirroring back to you something that you need to see in yourself.
What that is I do not know, and it is not my business. That is
what mirrors do. ...reflect back.
changing partners, learning new steps, realizing where we can not
follow, realizing where we cannot lead.
to sit in the audience and judge what you are afraid to know......
us sit with this. It is time to no longer listen to all the
voices in our head, and trust that we are already G-d enough. Are
you willing to to let go of other's expectations of you and stand in
the light of who you already are?
We are rebirthing ourselves
into the oneness. Spiritual Labor is a long and arduous process.
With each dilation we move into the opening, and with each contraction
we allow the pain....letting go of history, letting go of the past,
letting go of the loss and of the past hurts surrendering
it all to G-d. Doing this we will be born into our self love.
send you blessings and the reminder that on this "Labor Day" let
it be a Labor Day of love and rebirth yourself into love for that is
who you are.
