If someone cuts you off as you cross the street, nearly running you over, what will you do about it? Your perception of the events will ultimately paint the picture of what happened in those moments. You could tell everyone you see that morning about that terrible driver and how you almost lost your life that morning. This keeps the feelings alive, building on the impact of it. You could say a thank you to the universe for not getting run over and put it behind you.You could choose to recognize that we all have moments where we could be more present, recognizing the lesson that has been presented to you, after all in the end we are all human.
The choice is yours. Perception does create reality.
That said, I am definitely honing my craft. I still lose my patience, feel frustrated and long for inner peace in hot moments. I remind myself that that is natural, that I too am a….human being.
My work with ACIM (A Course in Miracles) has me quite hot under the collar lately. As I pursue a more forgiving, open hearted way of life I seem to be feeling quite the opposite. I am realizing just how high the mountain is that I have chosen to climb. I must say, I am feeling the pressure of it all and my ego is fighting it tooth and nail. I am lucky to have such a wonderful husband!
I keep coming back to this idea, that universal law is the only law. My “reality” is mine alone and therefore, not real. My perception is just that, and if I smile and have fun all will be well. All good things to you my friends.
Peace, grace and love! Lisa
