we do not see the world the way the world is, we see it the way we are. change your perception, look for goodness and innocence and you will surely find it. life reflects you – every day is a clean canvas for you to paint your inner state/perception on. what will you choose to see: fear and separation or perfection and love. there is no external force, you make things what they are.
some people do things that you view as “evil”, and that is okay. it only means that what they are doing is something you prefer not to do. but maybe they have to go through that to get to your current perception? this is their free will. you do not know what another person desires or their true intentions. who are we to judge right or wrong. but we can choose. we an recognize things we want and things we don’t want and desire in the direction we want to evolve our perception. yet we have to respect another’s path – judge not for you judge yourself. maybe they want to remember who they are through suffering, for all suffering can do is urge is to change our perception and suffer no more. once again, we see ourselves reflected in all people and things in the external life.
why allow people to walk their path if it seems what they are doing is so wrong? there is only fear and love, and only love is real. life is a game where we constantly recreate who we are by desiring higher. we can go straight in the direction of love by seeing only love reflected everywhere, realizing that is ourselves we release through this perception, and all the world with us (this is what the masters showed us, like Jesus). or we can follow fear and remember who we are through that which we are not, namely death, sickness and sin. we are life, truth and love.
i am saying look in the other direction. we are one creation although the senses doesn’t testify to this. but already science is showing the contentedness of things (Gregg Braden). and of course this is no secret in spirituality, for unity is the great truth. that’s why Jesus said forgive to be forgiven, because it is only your own false perception of the world you forgive. this is how we make the world a better place. through knowing that love is the only substance/force, cause and effect we choose not to see anything another than this reflected in anyone or anything. we look past it to their true Self, which is our own Self. and by doing this we remind them of who they are and they remind us our who we are, One Creation in love, in return. but choose to crucify your brother, to make him guilty of the illusions of fear/suffering and separation he adored (through acts of violence and whatever), then you strengthen the idea that he is indeed lost and separated from God, something that could never be true in reality. we can only separate in illusion.
what you give you receive. by this i mean giving in thought and in feeling. what you think and feel you request life to manifest or show you externally. once everyone desires only love, joy and peace to be shown and no request is made for illusions, what suffering could there be left.
“what we choose to experience in our lives we must first feel in our hearts as if it has already happened” – this is how we create our experiences either consciously or unconsciously, but we always choose. not the “devil”, not anyone else.
but how can i be responsible for another person intentionally hurting my feelings? i like the way Esther Hicks puts it: person ABC hurts my feelings, and i am saying i am responsible for what they did. how? we are like radio towers requesting a certain radio station or life experience. this is all physical life can give us, what we ask and essentially give ourselves. so maybe i had some very nasty thoughts towards ABC in the past. or maybe i was just having an unhappy day in general judging by how i felt (internally, emotion and thought). so that day i was requesting that experience which makes it more likely for my to stumble upon ABC when they are in a bad mood and more prone to hurt me. but the next day i wake up and do something that makes me happy: i like dancing, laughing and praying (thinking things that is positive and i like). then on that day i might naturally avoid ABC if they are in a bad mood.
maybe you’ve had this experience before where your friends change when you change your habits or ways of thinking, feeling and perceiving.
my daily cycle is to focus on pure happiness first thing in the morning. get out of your negative-mind and into your heart. once your in that good feelings you automatically get inspired with ideas about things you want to do immediately. so then i act on it, whether it’s feeding the cats, doing dishes, jogging, writing, whatever. and then i return to that pure happiness through focus again, i get inspired again, act again, and so it goes.
return to pure happiness as often throughout the day, and never act out of fear (or any other emotional derivative).
