What I know to be true is no matter how turbulent the roller coaster of life seems to be, or however many times I swing from one emotional high, to any emotional low, this life is a precious gift of experience I honor and treasure – no matter what form it appears to take.
I know that whatever I know is only a point of view based on a past history of experiences, with every single point of view hiding in the minds of all, being equally unique and valid to their past, as similar or as different as it seems from mine. To only be focused on my individual point of view is to build a belief, that how I see things may be more right than the others around me. This keeps me isolated in my own limited world of opinion, without the opportunity to learn from the brilliance that we’re all here to offer.
I know from the lessons of past experiences, whenever I remained lost in my own view point, I’d have to ignore every other possibility in the entire Universe, just to keep my limiting opinion in focus.
I could either choose to be right and ignore the entire world around me, or I could choose to be in peace, and invite the world into this opening heart of mine, that only wants to be loved, appreciated, and free from the burden of needing to decide if anyone, including myself, is acting right or wrong.
I know whenever anger erupts, that those emotional explosions are letting us know who is next in line to be appreciated and loved. When I was the one erupting, I took the time to notice that if no one was offering love to this hurt, angry or sensitive me, than it must be my turn to love and appreciate all that I am.
I know I am most thankful for the opportunity to love and appreciate the innocence in all, no matter what anyone says to me in return, since the love I offer must make its way through me, before even arriving in the heart of whom ever I’m choosing to embrace.
I know the only cost of this life of ever present peace and unconditional love is learning to simply accept and tolerate the opinions and thoughts of others. The words we speak, inform the world what thoughts we are unknowingly getting lost in, while the sounds of the words are there to get the world’s attention, asking for the unconditional love we are all here to offer ourselves, and one another.
I know that I’ll never be right, without someone else being labeled wrong, and what I really know for sure, is there is nothing you ever need to know, when there is the awareness of everything you are already here to love.
