Compassion is the basis of all truthful relationships: it means being present with love for ourselves and for all life, including animals, fish, birds, and trees. Compassion is bringing our deepest truth into our actions, no matter how much the world seems to resist, because that is ultimately what we have to give to this world and one another.
The idea that the invisible universe is more real than the visible one indeed has never been so widely accepted by practical scientists as now in this climactic century. But it is far from a new notion to seers and philosophers, for don’t forget, Aristotle called life “spirit pervading matter,” a concept all great religions would heartily endorse…the philosophy of mysticism emerges as eminently reasonable…the newly realized reality of the non-material world, of fields that influence, of waves that convey, of minds that pervade.
This 3D realm is full of disturbances to our serenity. There are endless opportunities to complain about things we don’t have, people who do things we don’t like, places that we’d rather not be, or situations that make us uncomfortable. For the most part, we spend ridiculous amounts of energy doing just that – complaining about things we can’t change. This brings us nothing but restlessness, irritability, and discontent.
Armed with these negative vibrations, righteous indignation consumes us. We begin to fight everything and everyone. If only the world would behave the way it should…the way we want it to, then our Egos would be stroked and we could be happy. Our Egos convince us that being right is being happy.
When all else fails, our Egos convince us that we must change the people, places, things, and situations that are disagreeable to us. Rarely, if ever, is this possible. So, our Egos resort to survival mode, and our vibrations become dark and sinister.
But, there is always hope. We can change. We can change our perception. We can change our perspective. In order to do so, we must realize that everything is not always about us. Sometimes we need to just exit the stage, because our character isn’t even in the scene that our Egos have led us to believe we are in. Other times, when wisdom finally overcomes our Egos, we remove our costumes altogether and join the rest of the audience because we realize that we are not even in this performance.
Not every story is ours. Serenity comes from this realization.
