Elder of the Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment, Lynne Shaw, shares with the Blog a slightly painful reminder that if life isn’t quite working out, we may well benefit by being aware of where our focus is, stepping back from drama and taking responsibility for our stuff.
As you are the size of a spec of dust in the Universe, you can be mistaken in thinking or believing that your thoughts, words and deeds have little impact. Remember that everything you think, say and do reverberates across the whole of creation. Everything you think, say or do matters.
Environmental disharmony is created by Mental, Emotional and Spiritual disharmony, so it behooves you to clean up your act. You may say you act consciously with regard to your footprint on the Earth, yet if you are withholding love from your heart for yourself or others due to feelings of worthlessness, past hurts or fears, then your attempts to lessen your carbon footprint has little effect.
Contributing to peace on earth
When you can truly say that you love your sisters and brothers unconditionally and that you love yourself as Creator loves you, then you are truly contributing to peace on Earth. Until that time you have a responsibility to clean up your act. To find and purge those places in your heart where you continue to judge, criticize, limit, withhold, from yourself or others.
You may know all of the Spiritually correct things to say, but does that match what is in your heart? For if you believe yourself to be elevated above anyone or thing in this Universe then the doors to the Kingdom of Heaven are yet to open to you and you will continue on this wheel of birth and rebirth until you learn humility and the truth of where you are in creation. We are all equal in the eyes of God, all are as important as each other. We are all one where every thought, word and deed registers in the heart of every other creature. Therefore you matter, your choices matter and the life you create matters.
How to make a difference
It is time to put an end to your running away from the truth and any blaming, or projecting onto others in order for you to cope. Only you are responsible for the life you are creating. Only you are responsible for your personal heaven or hell that registers across the entire Universe.
Be kind, be clear, and search for the truth in your heart. Live a simple life with honesty, integrity and equanimity with your fellow woman and man and all beings in this Universe.
May peace reign in and around you.
