We need to be clear on our personal values so we are not swayed by the opinions of ‘public courts’. Guilt and shame are powerful convincers when not grounded in self. Ego consciousness uses fear of negativity rooted in one or the other, or both to assert itself. I.e to make you step out of yourself.
Ones true self and false self can’t appear and stand in or for a matter at the same time. Ego consciousness attempts to put the former in the back seat always.
Our values are comprised of what we on a individual level, like or dislike as determined in our hearts space. To honour that even when people beat a drum for their own, in a way that doesn’t validate yours or stands in contrast to it, is steadfastness because you validate it yourself.
“Change often disrupts the social order some rely on for their self esteem.” (Ed Latimore)
When a heart is pure it realises that existence of any disruptive feelings are communicating something profound. They sit with it, remain mellow with it, until they hear the message they were being led to hear. These people are rewarded with substance as a result of this. They may feel change to be disruptive, but they see it as a catalyst for growth. It’s divine intervention and they welcome its fruits home.
The wonders of what they discover about themselves carry appreciation wrapped in hope. From paradigm shifts that pave way for new possibilities and fundamental changes to the self esteem they’ve cultivated through unconscious programming.
A reality out side of you can never reflect back to you, your truth about you. (It can give you hints yes) but where facts are concerned it can not communicate the hows or whys. So how would you recognise your truth outside of you?
How, when you are yet to detangle it from within, from what’s yours and all that never was.
Mystery is amazing when cracking its code. For it leads to the discovery of the fragmented pieces of your abandoned soul.
“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” (Anatole France)
And it takes courage to decide to die to it, rising from your ashes can’t happen without it.
“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” (Deepak chopra)
Be still in the midst of confusion and disorder. For after a storm comes clarity and order. The kind that works in tandem with your highest self for your highest good.
