What has this do with me?
Many people in the world of personal growth, myself included, subscribe to the theory that what we see, feel and experience is a direct result of what we believe.
I suspect that for some, this feels like a bitter pill to swallow and understandably so.
It was reported on my local news last week that a man out walking his dog saw three hoodies stamping a newly born fawn to death.
Words failed me.
What the hell has this to do with ME?
What do I believe about myself and the world, that would produce a place where such awful, hideous things can and do happen?
I’ve found asking questions of myself a good place to start.
I’m also renewing my commitment to look closer at where I chose to turn a blind eye and denied the things that cause me revulsion.
I use tools such as meditation, free writing and talking with likeminded friends to uncover places where I’ve hidden my shame, guilt and deceit….my dark side…my shadow.
I attempt to quieten the voice that says: …little ‘ol me could never make a difference to the big bad world…so what was the point of trying…after all, it’s futile… isn‘t it?
I’ll have to keep an eye out for those sneaky lies I tell myself. And I’m doing my best to work through the above with love, compassion and kindness.
I’ll keep you posted on how it pans out.
On the lighter side of things, I’m having my new windows fitted today…sure to help with the heating bills in the winter…and perhaps an opportunity for me to see my world with clearer vision and gain a new perspective.
Let’s hope so!
Love Light and Blessings
