When we realize that we are becoming exactly like those we oppose, shouldn't that be reason enough for us to stop opposing them?
As we have walked across The Bridge together, we've talked a lot about the old ways and the new ways of doing things. The current world acceleration requires us to adapt to challenges and situations which may be uncomfortable at first, but, with a shift in our perspective, all things come into focus. We see that the new ways are actually beneficial for us; that they offer the promise of something far grander than the current mainstream matrix. In order to slip gracefully into the new paradigm we only need to let go . . .
I've always enjoyed window shopping. You know what window shopping is: it's going out to the stores with no intention of buying anything. When I window shop, I tell myself that, today, I'm leaving my wallet in my pocket. I'm just going to look in the windows, no matter how tempting the shop owners present their wares.
I treat our current way of life the same way. I'm only window shoppping it. I'm not buying anything anymore. When the media, for instance, tells me that there is some new problem out there, and the solution is now being made available to everyone, I simple observe it. My experience has taught me, time and time again, that the media is self serving, and they have no interest whatsoever in my well being. In fact, it's just the opposite - the media creates problems for us in order to get us to buy ideas and consumer goods.
In the old days, I would have gotten angry and begun to oppose their media gyrations, thus dissipating my precious energy. But now I've come to understand that I am becoming just like whoever or whatever I am opposing.
So now I window shop. I observe only, with no emotional attachment to the ideas they're selling on TV and in the newspapers. I'm not buying any of it; so I'm no longer feeding it, and I'm no longer becoming like those I used to oppose. This is one of the keys to our ultimate happiness. We let go by becoming observers.
Those who are living in their highest light know that it is good to share your life and your love, for we have, indeed, come together for a reason. Feel free to fill your days and nights with love for your partner, your family, your friends, your pets, your possessions and everything, for these are all gifts unto you. Just remember that it is unwise to let your attachment to anyone or anything take one minute away from your joy.
My intention for today is:
I intend that I am observing the world around me and, in this way, I am doing my part to usher in a golden age of manifestation.
