This is important to look at in relationships. Are we honoring the gifts that each person brings to our relationships? Or, are we more about focusing on what the other person isn’t bringing to the relationship? Or, are we only focusing on what we bring to the relationship and how important we are to it in a spirit of competitiveness instead of cooperation? Relationships are our most important learning ground because they mirror to us who we are immediately, if we choose to look at it as a mirror and not an irritation. Irritation and judgement are emotions and any emotions that come up for us are a response to something we have first within ourselves and then it is mirrored back to us by someone outside of ourselves. So if you feel someone is displaying anger towards you, where do you hold anger within you? Or any other emotion that wells up inside you based on an interaction with someone. Judgement and blame are easy, looking within ourselves for the source often isn’t. This is based on Sacred Law – As Within, So Without. Everything outside us is a reflection of what is within us.
This month take the time to look at who you are blaming for your unhappiness – person, place, event or situation – they are all trying to teach you something. Have the Courage and the Strength to open up to what the unhappiness is really about, within the only person that can answer that question…YOU!
Love and Blessings
