Change yourself. Change your world.
Know what’s going on inside and what makes you tick is only part of the battle. Then you have to uncover why you are the way you are, and then set about transmitting those aspects that distort your light and make you less than you can be. No one can tell you what to do. Neither can they do it for you. You are the captain of your life. What you do with what you learn about yourself is solely upon you.
What will you change?
What will you do with what you find on your journey of self-exploration? Certainly just looking at it will start the process of transformation, for shining light into the shadows of your mind will dissipate the illusions you use to shield you from your truth.
But sooner or later looking is not enough. Something inside says to act, to do something to dissolve the egoic distortions that make you how you are, neither creating the life you want to live nor taking you where you want to go.
What you do and how you do it will reflect the consciousness you bring to bear, and the love and light you devote to your affairs.
When you do, your outer reality will begin to change around you to accommodate your new vibrations. Try it and see.
Just don’t expect it to happen on your schedule. Cultivate perseverance and self-discipline, and trust that your inner voice will show you the way.
Change your world.
We all want a better world. We’d all like to change it in one way or another.
The awakening soul walks a tightrope, recognizing that all beings are created with free will and bear the responsibility to allow others to exercise their own.
Allowing others and all things to be as they are created is one of the great challenges facing all of us, especially in these turbulent times. But it is a challenge we all must meet if we are to find our way home.
Stop Buttin’ In
My advice is simple. Follow your inner voice. If it tells you to do something, do it. If not, don’t.
To paraphrase one of my law professors, “Don’t be an officious intermeddler.” Allow others a space to go their own ways, even if they conflict with your own. For reconciling the two may just be part of the experiences you’re here to get.
John Wayne said it best in Big Jake, “I swore I ain’t buttin’ in.” So don’t. Mind your own business, and let the world mind its own.
Of course, if your inner voice says otherwise and to act, to stand and add some contribution to the collective consciousness that creates this reality, then forget everything I said and get to work.
God bless you indeed.
