Allow your perspective to see the ENEMY and the HATER as a TEACHER. Take their negative energy and alchemize it into GROWTH for yourself. We give our POWER away when we DEFINE them as someone who is against us. The enemy and hater only live within. Our perspective of every person we meet, is a reflection of ourselves. When we see others as teachers, we are able to apply the necessary knowledge, competence, and virtue to the parts of ourselves that needs to CONQUER the enemy and SILENCE the hater. Understand: opposition, hostility, hate, and criticism, is more about the internal world of the person holding these than it is about the person being opposed, hated, and criticized. WE are responsible for our reaction. React with your HIGHEST good in the driver’s seat.
POWER is YOURS. STUDENT.
We look to the future
With thoughts of the past
Assuming what’s present
Is what will last
Take the chances
Dance in the rain
Today will fade
All that’ll be left….
Are the memories we make
Keep your face to the light
Shadows fall behind you
Journey light in this life
Only way out is to get through
What we bring to reality’s door
Are perceptions we have, nothing more.
And in those perceptions are stories told
Some truths, some lies, attachments we hold.
What if our purpose is to sit and observe
The ego’s claim of what it deserves
From shallow living to endless pleasures
Unsatisfied goals, inadequate measures
And in the observing we teach ourselves
All that’s external, inside it dwells
To find the freedom from the shackles of claim
You are the observer, not the ego with a name.
Blinded by the glaring sun
Tangled in a web, beautifully spun
Trying to release myself from its hold
It grabs on tighter, intending I fold
And so I let my resistance go
Explore this web, dive to the unknown
I find myself holding its strings
As if I was broken with clipped wings
I know very well I may fly away
But the tangled mess invites me to stay
