Do you feel like you can create Heaven or Hell depending on how you react?
Do you feel like you have any control over this state of mind?
Do you think you have a choice?
I see so many people in so much pain; searching for answers while filled with anger, resentment and pain. Demanding; “if I only knew why this happened then I could let it go and move on”. What if mystery were the answer…what if the lesson is learning to let go of a situation when no reason is given? Can we find the strength and discipline to manage our energetic power and keep ourselves in a state of Peace?
The challenge is, so many times I see just the opposite. People grabbing, pulling, clinging to situations that bring them more and more pain; desperately trying to hold on to the past, trying to find a way to change another person. Convincing themselves there’s something they can say that will change the thoughts of another person.
What kind of torture is this…why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we think we can control another person? Do we really find any peace in this circle of denial? Well, the answer is no; there’s no peace to be found here!
Sometimes it takes spiraling down to the bottom to have an AH-HA moment of clarity. In this moment of clarity, we understand that we are responsible for our thoughts and actions. The illusion of control over another person is based around manipulation or creating a fearful state of mind in that person. All of these lower level energies are very short lived, people will always eventually rebel against force. True power lies in the knowledge that we are all responsible for our own actions. The only thing anyone can control are the choices we make in any given situation.
Therein is the basis for creating your own personal heaven or hell, as the title of Tolstoy’s famous best-seller ~ “The Kingdom of God Is Within You” makes a very powerful statement, which was taken from the Holy Bible, Luke 17:21. When we choose to send Love, Kindness, Compassion, and Forgiveness to the world and more closely, to the people around us; we find ourselves in a peaceful state of mind creating our own space of heaven. When we try to control others with anger, manipulation, fear, or intolerance, we create a feeling inside ourselves of pain, guilt, fear and despair, which creates our own hell or torture. It really is a mirror; what we project comes back to us!
Let’s face it, it’s easy to feel grateful and peaceful when life is going along smoothly. When it counts is when we are standing in the middle of chaos; how easily can we stay in the state of peacefulness at that moment? At least for me, I find the classic lessons mostly come down to patience and endurance.
Please join me in the creation of your own heaven on earth with a peaceful, loving, grateful, state of mind and heart. Make the choice to move through painful situations as learning lessons and understand that we have much to gain from uncomfortable moments in time. These teaching lessons truly bring our soul to the surface and show us what we’re made of…
Please send Love to those in pain…they truly need it!
Sending Love and Blessings To All
