Hello Dear Souls I am so grateful to you for reading this post!
Thanksgiving just reminded us of the need to have gratitude, but so many are grieving life’s troubles in this moment, I wanted to reflect on the purpose of things that don’t feel so good and the ways I transform those things into conscious expansion.
Wanting to follow the tradition of appreciation for Thanksgiving, I focused on giving “thanks” to all who have “harmed” me. Of course, this is a really tough thing if the “harm” is deep or violent, but the essence here is to be grateful for the lesson, to be grateful for the challenge, and to have compassion for those you perceive as doing the “harming”. Am knowing this takes a monumental effort with the miasma of hate and bigotry so prevalent in our lives right now.
The Master loves everyone, regardless of character. He gives love to all and seeks to serve all. He is always master of the situation, no matter where he is placed. He is never disturbed by the whirlwinds of passion surging about him. Serenely he watches the mad show and seeks to guide others in the ways of sanity.
Often the hardest lesson is to face and surrender to the places in ourself we do not want to claim and these situations force us to face the deeply held beliefs by causing disruption in our lives.
Things that don’t feel so good offer us a mirror to our beliefs by reflecting our internal programming.
