As I’ve stated, I’ve been experiencing a significant shift lately. All this knowledge and the exercises have been organically intertwining and creating new ways for me to view and move through the world. I’ve understood the principal of forgiveness, but my programming was causing me to see it differently in the past. I now have a clearer and more functional understanding about the role that past difficulties have played in my life. I can choose to focus on the damage that was done, or I can choose to focus on the invaluable lessons that pain and suffering have brought me. Everything comes back to my thoughts. Which way will my soul go? It’s not enough to just do no harm. If that’s the case, I will continue to wander directionless on the “misty flats.” About 10 years ago, I found the book “Hinds Feet on High Places.” It’s a beautiful allegory of the spiritual path and the message of the book is so fitting for the place I’m in right now. Moving past the stuckness that has enveloped me for too long now. My practice for the next week will be looking for kindness, but also practicing infusing my thoughts with love. I have a lot of navigational questions. How do I operate the beautiful machine? The energy of love has a way of changing the question before you even get to the answer. This is the path I’m going to follow. Up the high road.
