Regardless of your beliefs, your life experiences bring you face-to- face with choices. You can decide to be grateful for whatever unfolds, love and accept yourself and others as they are, or judge and reject people, even get angry. Consider why it pays to move to an unwavering place of compassion;
1) Emotions no longer control you. When you permit people to push your buttons, this reinforces illusions of inadequacy and insecurity. The domino effect may lead you to imagine fear, vulnerability and other distractions. This creates unnecessary stress. Mental discipline dissolves it.
2) Feeling hurt does not matter. Feeling exposed, ridiculed or judged, explain why human beings resist being honest. To realize you are always worthy frees you to stop saying what you are not and realize what you are. Emotional pain may evoke discomfort, but only as long as you do not choose to sense it for what it is. Soul knows what matters. Ego just makes it up.
3) Misplaced beliefs begin to crumble. So long as you believe someone can hurt you with words, make your life challenging with lies or untoward behaviour, then these experiences are more likely to unfold. As you evolve, you sense discomfort is a symptom of something you do not yet recognize and accept inside. This prompts you to change how you think and act. You also start to feel grateful, to love people who seem to make life hard. They draw attention to your own misplaced thoughts and feelings calling for new attention.
4) Lessons become clearer. To turn away from perceived problems does not enable you to grow to see what conditions are telling you about yourself. Every event that unfolds is the universe acting to empower you to see and address beliefs that do not serve you. As you move to explore what causes you to react to people with anything other than compassion, then lessons become clearer in the now. You get closer to truth.
