A moment of kindness can produce a mood of harmony between heaven and earth. Purity of heart can leave a fine example for 100 generations. Zicheng Hang
A pure heart is a spotless mirror in which images of infinite beauty are reflected. Rumi
As we walk the spiritual path, we will often be challenged by what we see around us. The pull is to look, to have an opinion, and then to share our opinion with the world. With each of these actions however, we create energetic links between us and what we are looking at. If what we are observing is positive, then so are our connections to it.
But if what we are looking at is negative, then we have wrapped ourselves in this unpleasant energy by giving it our attention. Common belief is that we are fixing something by giving it our focus; in fact we are strengthening the ugliness. Trust is knowing that those who act wrongly will be taken to task; they will be judged. Perhaps on this realm, certainly on another.
Our job is to be very clear in what we give our attention to. We must own our power. We must be aware that where our attention goes, our energy flows. What am I giving power to by looking at and having an emotional reaction?
Our job as a spiritual being with a lot of energetic power is to use that power wisely. Observation and awareness are one thing; righteous indignation and the desire to be judge, jury and executioner are something else entirely.
Affirmation: Today I am one with my higher mind and soul, and use the energetic power of my inner being wisely.
