Are we awake or dreaming? Perhaps we are dreaming we are awake? Maybe yesterday we were dreaming or tomorrow we'll be awake. Whether awake or dreaming our consciousness as an integral part of existence goes on. Here is where I try to sort out my understanding of what just is. Namaste!
Self-mastery requires self-love - so go find it and embrace it wholly. Living a life in harmony requires the ability to hold compassion, self-control and self-respect - so look within and find these things...embrace them wholly. Life is a privilege and not a curse but the experiential value will depend greatly on the perspectives you hold and the words you choose to describe inside your own mind what you experience. If your words are hateful and negative, the negative energy and torment grows within you. It's not worth it. If your words are loving and positive, the positive energy will create in you great bliss. Its worth it. Do no harm in this world. Use introspection for understanding rather than seeking excuses in the outside world. Love and light heal all wounds but only to the extent you can right your thinking. See the truth about yourself and love yourself any way. Never give up hope of succeeding in life but hold no desires that require interfering with other souls. Such desires are not born of right thinking and will only lead to your down fall. Live and let live. Love and let love. Turn within and believe in yourself. Brightest blessings of love and light to all in existence.
