Do you notice repeated occurrences in life? And that the very situation we keep trying to avoid comes back and visits us again and again? If we try to change our place, our jobs, our relationships, and even when we try to hide something from our awareness, the same situation comes back to visit us in another person or in another form.
Sometimes we try to help someone resolve a bad situation, and then suddenly, we find ourselves in the same situation.
If we contemplate on this deeply, it is clearly revealed that that which we continue to judge and condemn, becomes our shadow and stays with us.
We make peace with the situation only when we choose to accept the responsibility for creating it and resolve it with forgiveness and understanding.
The world is our mirror. There is no other here. There is only one of us.
The mirror smiles if we smile and it scowls if we scowl at it.
Every situation or person we perceive on the outside, is an expression of the consciousness we hold on the inside.
So at this moment, if you have someone in front of you who is radiating love and peace, the consciousness, which you hold inside, is responsible for it. And in the same way, if you are experiencing irritation and discord of what is happening in front of you, then it is again because of the consciousness that you are holding on the inside. No person, no situation has the power to make us sad, angry, irritated, happy, or peaceful. We are the authors and executors of these things, absolutely.
Till we resolve the discordant, internal situation with forgiveness, understanding, and non-judgment, the situation will continue to appear in one form or another in our life.
We have fallen into a deep sleep of unconsciousness, and we continue to play the “blame games” of believing that everything on the outside is the reason for all bad situations in life. Waking up to the truth that we are 100% responsible for everything that is happening around us, is the most powerful of keys.
To begin to see the reflection of the physical reality we want, the first step is to see everything on the outside as a mirror’s reflection. When you look at your reflection in the mirror, you know that you are not really inside the mirror. So if you need to change the reflection in the mirror, you do not go to the mirror to change the reflection. Instead, you change yourself in order to see a change in the mirror’s reflection. Any change in the outer reality must begin from the inner reality within your consciousness, which is your state of being.
True meditation is taking time to sit with yourself. While noticing the thoughts that do not support you, question them, see them from the place of understanding, and let them go.
We are the masters of our life; the captains of our ship, and we absolutely have the choice to create our world the way we want it to be.
Let us choose to take responsibility for our creations. We are the bringers of wisdom, radiance, and peace for this Planet. Let us choose to play this game of “life” wisely.
