Change of Scenery
So, if you could but strive to achieve a state of balance and equanimity with your thoughts, hold tight to that center through the ups and downs knowing that nothing you see or experience changes the heart and soul of you, you can change your experience. What you see and experience may influence your thoughts and shape your perspectives but the heart of you is ever-present and always consistent. You have the power to create in this world. If you focus continually on that which evokes in you fear, worry, incredulous feelings or even self-righteous indignation, your experience and your perspective will be always negatively shaped. If you could raise your gaze and specifically seek to find a silver lining, something beautiful, evidence of the love being played for you right in front of your eyes, you will train your eyes to see the beauty and love in this universe. You can give yourself the tools you need to change any situation to one that provides you not with never-ending pain and suffering but true love and greater understanding. You are capable of this and you do have a choice. There is nothing to loose in seeing love and beauty in this world. In fact, these things inspire your emotions in the infinitely positive and it feels good. So good. There is everything to lose in casting your gaze always downward. You will miss the light and the love around you. You can raise yourself up at any time you choose and you will be supported as you endeavor to learn in this world. It isn't easy always. Sometimes it is difficult and quite uncomfortable but you wanted this experience or would not have created it. So, seek the wisdom of the experience as you would a beautiful silver lining in a sky full of dark storm clouds. You will find your way. Believe in yourselves and do all that you can to find that which inspires you most. It matters so much in this place. You matter so much in this place.
