Life is short and life is precious. I will never, ever understand why some people choose to live a life filled with anger and hatred.
We’ve all known these people, the ones who go to great lengths to foist their anger and hatred on others, while claiming when you might call them on it, that you are the angry person. Anger breeds anger, by its very energy emitted by others; it is a contagious, toxic thought form that permeates people and relationships, replacing loving thought with angry thought, filling up light filled spaces with darkness.
My experience with angry people is that that they carry baggage from the past that they can’t seem to let go of, even when they claim they have.
Forgiveness is the antidote to anger. Love is the antidote to fear. Be kind to one another… It is the root of compassion and the foundation of love for all beings.
It is never too late… I remind myself often of these words, by Louise Hay:
“My life is just beginning, and I love it. So many wonderful opportunities are on the horizon.”
– Louise L. Hay
Age is irrelevant… Every day we are faced with changes and opportunities. Every day is a new beginning. Every day is a change to evolve, to grow, to learn and to make a difference in the world.
Be the light you want to see…
What happens when relationships no longer serves the greater good in our lives? Sometimes we are able to extricate ourselves from those relationships in an easy manner, and other times those relationships will end with drama and pain.
But, even when a relationship ends with drama and pain, there is a still a way to redeem that rough ending, by making the choice to wish the other person well in the future. It’s not always easy to feel that way after your feelings have been hurt, but, I guarantee it is a much healthier way to move on, than carrying about anger, hurt and pain.
Anger, hurt and pain over failed relationships can drag us down. Holding on to grudges create toxic energy in our bodies that can manifest in a host of different physical and emotional symptoms. Continue reading
Fear is a subjective emotion. We can choose to be ruled by our fear or we can choose to reach beyond our instinctive, individual emotions that drive our fear and look outside of ourselves and all of the things in the world that drive our fears, and see beauty in world.
Everyday the news is subjecting us to the latest stories that fill us with worry, concern, outrage, and fear. Constantly following the news, feeds our fear and plays on the subjective aspects of fear because we a choosing to let our fears control our lives. Not long ago the communication industry was not a 24/7 industry that played so heavily on our psyches.
Step back. Spend less time on social media. Disconnect. Turn off your devices. Free yourself from the outrage machine. Take a break from the news. Get outside. Take a walk. Breathe in the fresh air. Listen to the bird song. Connect with nature. Do anything that is not connected to following the latest news that pummel our senses and leaves us senseless and sometimes riddled with fear.
You can control your fear by replacing it with healthy thoughts and emotions. Be in the moment. Choose happiness over fear.
I am reminded this morning of this quote from Louise Hay:
“This year is like no other year I have ever lived before.” – Louise L. Hay
There feels as if a great darkness has descended upon us and we are trapped there, penned in, with little route for escape. The darkness will hold us captive unless we find our way out into the light through whatever openings we can find throughout our daily lives.
We are the master’s of our own lives. We make the choices of our own destiny. Let us find the light where we can and rise out of the darkness not giving power to the forces that wish to hold us down. The darkness must not win. Find your empowerment where you can, and let that guide you.
Saying I am “Busy,” can signal the need to avoid something unpleasant.
Many people use “busy” as their catch all buzz word to hide their preference to not respond or discuss something that might make them feel uncomfortable. I know I have used it myself on more than one occasion. It is the perfect excuse to get out of anything we don’t want to do.
But using that “busy” excuse gives rise to beg these questions: Continue reading
