It is necessary to acknowledge and deal with on some level, everything that crosses our path in order to move forward toward more of what we wish to experience. Although we must have acceptance of every situation or thing that exists in our current reality, we get to decide how much of our focus it gets, and how it will shape our lives. By determining where we want to live in our minds and hearts, just as we decide where we’d like to live in the physical world, we can then respond to the issue from a more neutral state, rather than letting it toss us around by allowing it to gain power over us. We can create more of what we would like to experience, rather than what we would not.
We choose the reality we create. If things are showing up that we do not wish to experience, we must accept that for some reason that is where we are right now, either personally or globally. Once we have accepted this, then we can choose to look for the gifts and teachings we have gained from having been there. All the while, we can keep our focus on our dreams and desires until our outer reality changes to catch up with the new reality we have planted and watered with our attention and focus.
It is true that sometimes we need to change our environment in order to grow. But sometimes, we need to grow in order to be able to change our environment.
The fastest path from here to where we’d like to be, is to accept reality as it is, in its entirety- but to place our attention on where we wish to live, in our hearts, bodies, and on our earthly domain.
