I find that wherever there’s a pain-point in my life, in my mind, in my body, there is the place where I’m holding onto an attachment to something that’s not serving me anymore. I don’t wish to learn through the pain anymore. I’m committed to learning through Joy – and yet, I don’t always know HOW to do that.
Fortunately, I don’t have to research the HOW. My job is to ALLOW the Higher Holy Spirit Self to figure that out. My job is entirely on focusing on my willingness to discard the painful patterns of the past and to step into the habit of making the most loving choice I can see.
My view of my life, and my ability to SEE and recognize with whatever faculty, (it sure doesn’t need to be my physical sight) whatever are the most loving choices available to me is up to my willingness.
This past Saturday, I took my sweet 13-year-old nephew, Mikey, to Manhattan for a day of adventures, and one of the things we did was to see the Broadway show To Kill A Mockingbird, based on the famous novel of the same name by Harper Lee. In the first part of the play, there’s the monologue about the use of ALL RISE in the courtroom when the proceedings begin. Scout, the young girl, tells us that this is what we must do in times of community service and matters such as this particular trial – we must rise to the best of ourselves, conduct ourselves and make our choices from our Higher Holy Spirit Self.
It’s so valuable to ALL of us to choose to LIVE this way, and not just on special occasions.
We can live this way if we choose.
The more I’m able to live from my Higher Holy Spirit Self and conduct myself with Love and compassion, the more I LOVE my life and feel like I’m living life from my TRUE Self and not from reacting to circumstances. It’s such a good feeling. It also saves a HUGE amount of time, because I’m not having to clean up messes related to my reactions.
I love being able to pause and look for more loving choices and find them. It’s exciting! Spiritual practice is 24/7 when we’re truly willing. Being willing is an active thing – it’s not passive at all. When we’re actually willing we’re not waiting for opportunities to be loving and transcend and transmute the limited patterns of the past – we’re actively choosing those opportunities. That’s what makes it so wonderful!
