THE INTUITIVE SELF
LIVING A BALANCED LIFE
We all want balance in our lives, but something invariably throws our equilibrium off - an argument at home, intrigue in the workplace, an ill-spoken phrase by a friend - and we end up doing and saying things we regret. Before long, the dense energy built up around us from painful thoughts and acts becomes difficult to penetrate.
How do we dispel, or better yet, avoid the dense energy created by discord?
Learning not to Judge
If someone curses us, we have four choices, three of which will lead to conflict within ourselves:
Choosing the fourth allows us to let go of anger and radiate acceptance and Love. Then we can either transmute the pain into laughter, or walk away.
Choosing to be Compassionate
This is an emotion which can only spring from humility. Humility is one of the hardest lessons to learn, perhaps because:
Yet if we want to truly feel that we have achieved greatness, we must embrace humility. It is the only interactive state that can protect us from personality weaknesses, for it acknowledges the greatness of others without denying our own greatness.
Being Respectful of Others
Regardless of background, We all spring from the same Source, and we all have access to the same abundance and wisdom that flows from that Source.
Wherever people's choices take them, they are learning lessons from which we—all beings—benefit in one form or another.
Don't be contemptuous of others. Instead, appreciate their tasks, respect their choice of path, and offer assistance only when asked.
Living a balanced life is within reach. If we take the time to step back and put things into perspective, peace can be a few heartbeats away.
