I am currently in week 5 of a 6 week journey I am facilitating using the 12 tracks from “Breathe Love” to experiment in creating new options within life by becoming aware of stuck patterns that are coming from living in “reactivity” versus in choice or “response.”
This past week we focused on “Courage” and “Forgiveness.” These emotions are primed by the practice of those that come before them: Faith, Hope, Generosity, Aspiration, Patience, Sympathy, Gratitude (Non-Interference) and Kindness. The sensations of courage and forgiveness are two of the most powerful emotions to engage in for the healing process.
Courage invigorates the inner being to “go for it” through whatever life is presenting, and in particular- to know that change is possible. Courage assists us to call upon our higher self, or, easily stated- our calmest and most rational free seeing self- to make choice and step into the life that we want to live as the person we want to be.
Forgiveness is the energy of freeing ourselves to see solution where otherwise we would see problems. It allows us to let go of self-judgement and step into self-discovery. It also lets us see that we, and all around us, will be forever “flawed” when we look from the critical eye. This feeling that life is forever flawed creates tensions over and over again that cut us off from enjoying the context of our lives and creating real connection with those around us based on a flow of love and a resonance as co-writers of our lives versus victim based thinking, talking and acting.
The journey through the tracks, and the chapters they are inspired by in The Rays of the Dawn, is a forever journey. It is the journey to knowing and then dancing with one’s greatest nature, and a journey into understanding and loving life around us.
The excerpt I am sharing is designed to be a little “nugget” of assistance along the way.
