During this year of transition I have learned what is important, and what I can leave behind. This realization was not only limited to only physical objects, although I have taken a lot of stuff to the thrift store. I have learned to discard the thoughts and beliefs no longer serving my best interest, for the greater good from my consciousness.
To do this I ask myself if a thought or belief has a foundation in love. If not, I shift my focus away from the thought or belief, and continue to shun it, if it reappears in my consciousness. This way I build a thought pattern filled with love, kindness and compassion. If I lose focus and become judgmental or negative, I ask if this behavior is rooted in love, or am I satisfying my fragile ego?
At times looking at the global landscape with a consciousness of love can be a challenge for us to maintain. What options do we have if we choose to look at the world through negative thoughts and beliefs? Where does that mindset take us, and how does that impact the world around us?
As our shift toward a loving consciousness gains momentum, it will become easier for us to go through our day because we can recognize the shift that is taking place in other people. Rather than accepting the status quo, we will be moving toward a more loving way of life.
Around the world people are challenging this outdated reality with the desire to build a world that is more inclusive. At the root of this global movement is a shift in consciousness to one that is more kind and loving.
We are bombarded with a lot of anger and frustration during the twenty-four hour news cycle, yet some of this anger is justified, while some is not. If we take a closer look within our local communities, we will see more reasons to be hopeful than we observe on the evening news. People are beginning to release old patterns of behavior because a positive light has illuminated the darkness of negativity that was once an accepted way of life.
When a shift in consciousness begins, we realize we are being educated by what is happening in the world around us. We are learning that the contrast between what we see on the news, and what we know to be true in our heart is helping us focus more clearly on the positive changes we want to experience in the world. These changes will affect our way of thinking and living, while recognizing this time as an opportunity to strive for higher levels of loving consciousness.
The question is, do we have the courage to continue the work of releasing our thoughts, and beliefs that no longer serve the common good? Or, do we let this opportunity slip away as we have in the past? Those are the choices we face every day, to be compassionate and inclusive, or return to old, obsolete ways of behaving.
We may believe things are falling apart around us, but what if we saw these events as opportunities to build the world we always wanted to experience? The world we want our children to inherit. It all begins with a shift in our consciousness, a change in the way we perceive each other, and an awareness of how our thoughts and beliefs create the world in which we live.
Can we learn to shift our consciousness to a more loving way of experiencing life? Let me know what you think. Leave a question or comment below, I’m always open to exploring the subject in more depth.
Each week I email an article to those who have subscribed to my weekly. This week I choose a hot potato, writing about the lessons only our families can teach us. Here is an excerpt.
The benefits of families are the lessons they continually teach. Because our history together may be longer than any other relationship, the lessons go deep into our past. To live a full and authentic life we must take the time to learn from these lessons, otherwise we will face them again and again in the future.
