We Are All on this Human Journey

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

The beauty about being human is that we are all in relationships of many kinds; work, romantic, family, friends, roommates, the stranger in line at the store, etc. Relationships are a reflection of the areas in our lives that are filled with love and ease, and others may be filled with conflict and judgement. Those same qualities can flip within relationships and ebb and flow between hardship and grace. Each relationship shows us something different. There are going to be some people who you may never get along with- that’s okay. It’s about seeing it as it is without judgement, a grudge, or disgust. Instead, see it as what it offers, see that person as human too, and see yourself as human; imperfect, learning and on the journey. This is also for those relationships that are peaceful and filled with love.

 

Here is a short meditation to along yourself to let go of any harmful feelings, so that you allow more space for grace to flow:

Sit or lay down.

Begin three parts breath. Bring a hand to your stomach and feel breath, allow it to rise to mid stomach, and then to your chest.

Bring attention to your heart space and think of someone you love. Allow that space to be filled with that love you feel for them. Thank them. Give love to them.

Breath into your heart space again and think of someone who may cause stress or irritation. Feel it. See it. Notice how it affects you. Breath again bringing acceptance and unconditional love into your thoughts. See them as another human on the journey. Bring in the awareness that they are doing the best from their state of consciousness. This may take a few goes. That’s okay. Be sure to accept yourself and not judge yourself either. Keep choosing to feel acceptance and love.

Remember: We are all doing our best based on our current state of consciousness. We are all working though unseen and unspoken battles.
