Your Own Death?
If one does not attach himself/herself to people and situations or desires, then never shall his heart be broken….but then…..does he/she ever truly live?
Makes you think doesn’t it.
Perhaps throughout the day, any old day, we happen upon another, and we say, ‘Hello.’ In that moment we look, we assess them, we know if they are friendly or not and whether we like them or not. Judgement of another happens in an instant.
When we choose to accept that person as is, we can relate to them and share with them on all levels. When we choose to not accept them for whatever reason or gut instinct we may’ve had at first glance, then we may avoid them or not be as friendly.
When we judge negatively, we cause separation.
When we judge positively, we create good emotions and good situations.
But rarely is life ever so cut and dried. Sometimes we may have to work with someone who we don’t really like or trust and yet to get the job done, we have to be co-operative. It feels like hard work to do this, even if it is necessary. Sometimes we get to work with those we feel at ease with and then the work takes no time at all and pleasant and productive conversations are held throughout.
Each of these situations, the positive one and the supposedly negative one are both just an experience in our lives. How we react to others is our choice. Perhaps if we become more aware that any experience is valuable to our Soul on its earthly journey, we may be able to take a step back and just see the situation for what it is rather than us judging what we think it should be.
Step out of the drama. Be accepting of others. Try to extend the love in your heart to both types of people, the negative and the positive and just see what occurs.
We actually learn so much when our lives become chaotic or crumpled even if we can’t see it at the time. Often, we end up in a whole other place because of some catastrophe and it may even be a blessing to us.
Of course, we could just go on our first judgement and stay in the negative drama of it all….and keep talking about it long after it is over as well! But, do we ever live if we don’t participate? Life means getting in there, boots and all, and giving it the best you have regardless. If you find yourself opting out of situations, relationships and even career moves because you are scared of change; then you will have died a little more inside each and every day that you chose to sit on the sidelines.
Get in the game. The game of life! Live. Love. Give of yourself – wholeheartedly. Smile….at everyone…and even break your heart now and then. It is stronger than you think…and so are you!
I’m cheering you on!
Have an awesome life….it’s time to live, and to totally astound yourself! Ooh Rah!
Blessings to All,
