“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”
My thoughts: We step into the future moment by moment, each moment becoming the “now” we exist in. Which future you are stepping into depends on what you have imagined, intended, desired, consciously thought about moment by moment. Time itself does not actually exist, but has become a useful construct for man. Hb
Energetically, honesty (with ourselves) is a much higher vibration than ‘pretending’ to feel how we don’t feel just so we don’t manifest more painful feelings. We are meant to embrace our humanity, be ok with ‘what is’ of our present moment, and show compassion to ourselves.—Fractal Enlightenment
Finding a compassionate perspective can be difficult in the face of man’s inhumanity to humankind, the animal kingdom and the planet. With the far reach of the internet, we are more aware than ever of how prolific the problems are beyond our own physical space. As a human who is evolving into more kind and loving ways to exist on this planet, you also become more sensitive to cruelty and violence. You also feel more responsible to do something about unacceptable conditions in the world. It can be very overwhelming.
One of the first steps to take in forming compassionate perspective is to tend to your own well being. Your well being is essential to being effective in the world. Unresolved anger and sadness can lead to frustration, depression, apathy and hopelessness. A vicious and paralyzing cycle that can be hard to get out of without professional help if left unattended to.
I would like to offer the suggestion that you not let this happen. At the first sign of a negative reaction overcoming your need to do a positive action, reach out. Understand that you are not alone. Having the perspective of knowing that if you care, there are others that do, too, can change your entire state of mind and will guide you toward hope and change. Find like-minded individuals and groups that you can team up with or contribute to. Feeling that you have done something to help a situation can empower you to do more in the future. It is a positive path to proactive health.
This is soul-tending, this is heart-mending. This is how we can use our compassionate perspective for our selves in the face of the endless stream of “what is wrong in the world”.
