A note on: The Universe as a Mirror
You are always meeting Self in this Universe.
Treat whatever happens, good or bad, is an opportunity to know yourself at a deeper level. Without the mirror of consciousness, nothing could be revealed to you!
The mirror does not mean that if you meet a criminal, that you are a criminal – but the criminal provides you with a clear mirror to look at your own thoughts and feelings about him/her.
Do you sit in righteous judgment, or do you look at him/her with compassion?
Do you recognise that the potential to ‘do wrong’ exists inside of you just as much as it exists inside of the other?
Is the mother who steals for her starving baby simply “a criminal”?
Most humans like to reduce life to ‘right and wrong’ judgments – but who sets the standards?
Those in power.
Life is so much more rich and complex that we care to admit to.
The Ultimate Reality is that we are all ONE — although we appear separate, we are not. We have just forgotten Who We Are. When we remember, the planet will heal. Our governments, financial and other institutions will heal. And war will be no more.
Therefore bless everything that comes into your life, and then seek your highest thought about it.
Ask yourself, “What would LOVE do in this situation?”
