Plain and simple: The things that bother me are the things that trigger a false belief. When false beliefs are triggered, I’m more likely to look at them, feel them, and give them my awareness and attention.
Awareness and attention is how I can shine the Light of Love on the dark thoughts of lack and attack.
It might seem crazy to be grateful for things that irritate us. It doesn’t make sense to be thankful to people who push our buttons, does it?
Well, I’m grateful that my willingness has shown me that what irritates me and bothers me is actually extremely helpful to me because it alerts me to where I believe something that’s false and my upset is pushing me to let it go so I can experience more Peace.
It took me a very long time to realize that the things and people that seem to upset me the most are ways that Spirit has come to help me.
We can open our minds through being pushed by the pain.
When I can identify the things in my mind that are untrue and that cause my suffering, then I can place my loving attention on them and let my opinions go. This is a daily practice. It’s a moment by moment practice that is healing my mind.
It’s so tempting to say that other people are the cause of our suffering.
It’s so tempting to say that circumstances are the cause of our upset.
But no matter how strongly attached we are to the belief that our upset is caused by someone else – it’s not going to be true.
A Course in Miracles tells us that we’re never upset for the reason we think.
When we hold unloving thoughts it upsets us. It infuriates us. It frightens us. It worries us.
We can open ourselves to the healing of the Higher Holy Spirit Self and transcend the limiting beliefs of the past.
Let’s claim our healing today. A powerful step is to be grateful that we can recognize an irritant as being a false belief rising into our awareness for healing. Let’s choose our healing today and be that living example of Self-Love.
It’s too difficult and punishing to continue to manage and cope with being upset when we don’t have to. Suffering is optional.
It may seem difficult to imagine that we can learn through remembering the truth instead of experience.
Instead of trying to understand it, let’s simply allow the Higher Holy Spirit Self to show us the way.
We are choosing to remember the truth today.
We are choosing to grow through Joy today.
If you’re tired of repeating the same upsets and running through the same painful patterns, it helps to know they’re related to fear. And fear can shift. Fear habits can be dissolved. This I’m certain of. Maybe you’d like to eliminate the patterns of fear. If so, please join me later this week.
