My Journey has been a beautiful one, but no more so than anyone elses . . . I acknowledge the sacredness of every journey, even if I don't agree with the behaviors a person may exhibit . . . They're working out their karma in whatever way they must at this point in this life and the time-space continuum . . . I give thanks everyday for everthing I experience . . . I embrace it all! Really, there's no other way . . . I realized many years ago that there's no other option . . .
One of the things we have to understand is the ugly part of our nature . . . Each of us has that ugly side . . . It's a part of the human experience . . . It's the Shadow . . . We carry the Shadow constantly . . . As the light of consciousness shines upon us, there is that dark Shadow . . . So, how do we deal with the Shadow once we accept and recognize it's existence?
One . . . We have to understand that we can't ignore the Shadow, or hide it under a rock . . . Two . . . Understand that to let the Shadow control our behavior is detrimental to our life, our psyche, our spirit, our relationships . . . Think about the people we know who function from the Shadow aspect of their being . . . We all know those people . . . Three . . . Realize that we can develop ways to stare the Shadow down . . . It's there, we acknowledge that it's there, and we develop a way of not allowing it to impact our lives, because we don't allow it to assert itself . . .
Let's acquaint ourselves with our Shadow and embrace it . . . It's the enemy we know . . . We know how it works, how it can seize control of our thoughts-emotions-behaviors, and the consequences arising from that . . . Once we control the Shadow by acknowledging and knowing its machinations, we're well on our way, and the Journey becomes so much easier . . .
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
