When I alignment completely and
gratefully with all that already is - things that I have no power or
control over - that have occurred or are occurring - I am the most
There will always be something that I could
complain about - but I choose not to. I realize that complaining not

something else - or even dig deep into the offense and see it through
the eyes of an observer watching my reaction to it with self love and

Do you know that every moment that you spent today complaining you could have been CREATING?
Every moment you spend angry you could have spent BLISSFUL?
Every time you tried to change someone's mind you could have spent
LEARNING SOMETHING NEW? Every second spent disparaging a person,
religion, belief or law could have been spend UNCONDITIONALLY LOVING?

GENEROUSLY SERVING YOUR COMMUNITY? That every concern about the future
could have been spent ENJOYING YOUR PRESENT? That every time you tried

So instead of reacting - I am learning to realize that their mean words are not personal - it's what is going on for them!
I practice being BLiSS in the face of turmoil - it helps me to know
that I can be happy and sweet no matter how rude, wrong or unkind they
are. At the end of the evening - I know who I was today - and my
conscience is clear.
