In the eyes of your Soul, there is no such thing as “good” or “bad.” In the eyes of God, it is all good, meaningful and perfectly in Divine order. Everything serves a Divine and perfect purpose, whether we acknowledge it or not. Perceiving life through the eyes of your Soul allows you to take in life from this higher perspective. A Master perceives life and life’s lessons as a tool to evolve, to become more present within, a means to transcend the mind (ego) and its illusion of separateness. The personality perceives life from the view point of the ego or victim mentality and allows itself to be “weakened” by life and life’s situations.
Ultimately, one wants to be guided by the Soul or Monad (the Soul family) and not run by the personality. To be the master of your thoughts and emotions means not denying you have a negative thought or negative emotion, but recognizing them for what they are just thoughts and emotions. By not taking them on, buying into them, and allowing them to run you, you transcend them.
There is nothing “wrong” or “bad” about crying when you’re sad, hurt, or lonely. The key is to acknowledge the pain or the suffering and step out of it, see it from a larger perspective. Look at the entire situation from the perspective of your Soul. We are able to transcend painful emotions when we recognize that they are created in the mind and not due to anything going on in the outside world. Perception is the key. We have been given the ability to reason and free will to decide how we choose to perceive any situation at any moment.
A trap many face on the spiritual journey is denying our thoughts and feelings. When we get to the point where we know that a negative thought or a negative emotion will create further pain and suffering, we either beat ourselves up for having them or we try to stuff those thoughts and feelings down saying they are “bad” or “I don’t want to feel that way. Stuffing down the negative thoughts and feelings is like pouring toxic chemicals into your body.
Eventually those feelings will fester and develop into anger. Anger turned inward becomes depression or illness.
In order to transcend negative thoughts and emotions, we must acknowledge them, give them value and the attention they deserve and crave. They are bubbling up from a place of wounding that is begging to be healed. Unconditional love for oneself means recognizing and loving all aspects of our self, just like the Divine unconditionally loves all aspects of us, the “good” and the “bad”. Once we have unconditional love and compassion for ourselves, we can in turn truly have unconditional love and compassion for others, but it starts with ourselves.
Perceiving ourselves from the viewpoint of our Soul allows us freedom from judgment. When we stop judging ourselves, we will stop judging everyone, and we will stop judging life as “bad” or “good” and just see life for what it is; a place for the evolution of our Soul. We are not our mind. We are not our personality. We have never been victims nor will be ever be victims. It is all about perception. Use life as a catalyst for the evolution of your Soul.
Every lesson, every trauma, every pain is a new step on the ladder towards growth and new chance to strengthen, empower, and become the master of your experience. View every experience as a blessing in disguise; welcome it in as if you chose it. Eventually the negative thought will arise; you will be able to see it for what it is and not buy into it. Feelings will not follow it because you will be alert enough to transcend it and maybe even laugh at it. At that point, your outer world will begin to reflect your inner world, which will be peaceful and harmonious.
The realization that there is a higher path for humanity at this time has come to fruition. We are at a pivotal point in the evolutionary process where conscious choice is imperative. Choice is everything. Choice is our path to power. We are constantly being presented with choices. We are consistently being offered situations and circumstances where we are being given a choice to either dwell in the lower levels of fear and darkness or take the high road which leads to our hearts opening up to more light. The realization that there is a higher choice in every moment is one of the keys to ascension in this lifetime on this path (that we have chosen).
It is so simple, yet every day we make the same choices over and over unaware that this is what keeps us stuck in the never ending cycle of guilt, pain, worry, anxiety, and fear.
We settle for the more appealing lure of the easy way, the comfortable way, taking the path that keeps us limited because at the moment the higher choice would take too much effort and require too much strength and fortitude that your ego would love for you believe you don’t have.
We cannot allow the shadow self to envelop us in darkness any longer. This is the darkness that continues to hold us to at a lower level of consciousness. Choosing our own higher good is not always as fun or appealing to the ego when presented with such tempting opportunities that are available in the outside world.
Recognize when you are sinking into lower level thoughts, the lower mind, or the negative wounded ego. You know what those thoughts are for you. Watch them; become aware of them. They are different for each one of us. We all have the wherewithal at this point to see “choice points” very clearly. We now have the clarity. We are awake. The shadow has nowhere to hide at this point. The light of the Universe is so bright at this time in our existence that we almost have to fight the light in order to choose darkness.
