There is always room for compassion. To combat rage with rage only creates more rage. To berate an antagonizer diminishes you. To treat an intimidator ill is to treat yourself with disrespect as you remove yourself from who you really are. There is dignity in compassion; there is love.
Tap into your feelings to connect directly to your inner wisdom, which is part of universal love. To focus on others’ feelings confuses and disconnects you from your inner wisdom. When you make a decision based on others’ feelings, you will struggle because the feelings are not authentic to you and your inner wisdom.
You may feel a tug from humanity coaxing you to a point of view or movement. When you feel this tug be aware and act consciously. Only choose to follow the pull if it feels good. If it provokes fear or pain, the tug may not be for you. Will the journey bring you joy or freedom?
When your inner wisdom is preparing you for change, you may lose your equilibrium. Understand that when shifting, losing your balance is common. Be aware and patient with yourself. Seeing things from a new perspective can feel unsettling at first, but then the view is amazing.
You have a dream. You repeatedly feel joyful anticipation as you visualize the dream materializing. Then the day comes when your dream does indeed move into the physical world. If you feel fear, know the fear is there to tell you to pay attention. Something important is happening.
You crave to be seen and understood. It’s a human yearning we all share to some degree. Allowing and accepting yourself for wanting to be seen and understood helps you develop kindness and compassion. The most important person who needs to see you, understand you, and love you, is you.
You can answer the question “why” when you cannot find the words to explain it by using your imagination. Create imagery around what your inner wisdom knows but your conscious mind has yet to experience. Use your imagination, which is the purest form of creativity.
Find just one thought that makes you feel a bit better. Take yourself from powerless to insecure, worried to content, hopeful to joyous. Think just one thought, one thing that lights you up, even if it’s just for an instant. Keep reaching for just one better feeling thought.
Gratitude leads to your highest good. Even if you have a hard time feeling it, say “thank you.” Think it. Believing will come as you open up to the idea. Even while experiencing pain and chaos, there is something to appreciate and feel grateful for, which leads to peace.
