It’s Only Through the Light of Others

May 31, 2018

… that we can truly see OURSELVES.

Searching for the self in isolation is a daunting task.

You only know who you are IN RELATIONSHIP to another human being. People are mirrors to us. They magnify back to us where we stand within ourselves.

We may not always be able to see ourselves clearly, but our reflection through others will show us how we are showing up in the world. And that reflection is our contribution to the whole.

We are all one. We come from one source and we are on a path towards unified consciousness. When one of us benefits, we all benefit. When one of us suffers, we all suffer.

There is strength in community and there is strife in isolation. We are not here to be alone. We are here to strengthen the collective consciousness. So know that blowing out someone else’s candle, will never make yours burn brighter. 

Don’t resist others, they are there to help you remember who you are and that you are part of the whole. For without the light of others, we’d be left standing in the dark alone.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
