There is a sadness in me that does not seem to go away. There is an anger in me at the way people are and can be with each other. There are all sorts of judgments I am making at an unconscious level about what I see and hear in the world, and it’s negatively affecting me. None of this is serving the way of love. None of this moves me closer to joy. And yet it’s there, every day. How do I manage all this? What is the way forward?
The human mind is a tricky thing. It houses so much, and has access to so much. The one thing the egoic mind does extremely well is interpret and make judgments. So fast, in the blink of an eye, you have made an internal decision about something. Multiply this by ten thousand times a day and you can begin to see what you are dealing with.
It’s the correction of these perceptions that is at the heart of transformation. It’s the correction of these judgments that paves the way for a mind to align with a higher path, one that sees more and more the Reality of a person, thing, or situation.
The more you clear out those patterns of mind which influence your perceptions into forms that are not conducive to Truth recognition, the more your energy systems will shift to reflect the vibrational frequencies you desire: abiding joy, peace, and happiness.
It’s not joy, peace, and happiness because things outside you are happening the way you want it to. It has nothing to do with that! It has nothing to do with ‘I’m manifesting my dreams’ or ‘I’m feeling good today because people are acting as I believe they should.’
It’s related to the connection you are providing your mind, a connection that feeds you the higher frequencies of Truth and Spirit, in which love and joy and happiness are permanent features.
Once these higher-mind frequencies take root within your mind, that is when the internal nature of your being becomes detached from the external conditions. That is when you rest in higher states of awareness and enjoy the emotional experience they engender.
This does not mean you will never feel sad or angry or frustrated or disappointed again. But it does mean that those states of mind will hold less appeal. They just won’t ‘cut it’ anymore. And they will pass like clouds in the sky.
How can this connection be accelerated?
Begin by shining a light on all the dark judgments you harbor. Just look at them, but only long enough to witness them. And then ask yourself, “How might Spirit see this very same thing?”
This simple act is an invitation for your mind to see as Spirit sees.
Very quickly things will shift. Very quickly will your mind expand and open to new ways of perceiving. Don’t shut it down when it happens. Allow these new perceptions and thought patterns to literally override your current operating system.
If you were to do this not only on a daily basis but in every moment of your day, in every situation you find yourself, the rate of acceleration would blow you away. In short time you would literally begin to see the world from such a lofty view point, and it would be filled with compassion, tenderness, gratitude, and joy.
What a world we live in! What a gift we have been given to relish each day, each moment as Spirit does. The thing is, we don’t. We choose other perceptions over and over, convinced of their rightness. There is nothing ‘right’ about most of our perceptions, because we are the creator of most of our perceptions. But in truth, we can bypass all of that and go to Source, to the Source of heavenly perceptions and invite those into our mind. Do this and you will begin to understand what ‘right’ perception truly is.
When you are in your most tender state, you can give your thoughts a rest through this invitation to Spirit. When you are sad or hurting or angry, allow your emotions to be comforted by the knowing that a heavenly perception is just a thought away.
Do you really want to see differently? How badly?
What thought are you holding tightly to? What are you willing to let go of?
Know that your true power rests within you, as you activate the potential of your mind, which is to be as a channel for the Mind of Spirit. Nothing more, nothing less.
