I’ve learned universal consciousness is in control, not me. Even when I think I know the outcome, truth is, I do not. I must simply wait and see. Life has taught me to always think, feel and hope for the best because doing anything less, will only aid in mental, maybe even physical imprisonment. We all know, focusing on the lows of life, enables low vibrations, causing fearful thoughts which begin to block our vision, engulfing our creativity.  

Love better, think better, do better and feel better is the new motto I wish for all to adapt. 

Dione Howard

I’ve learned, what I want, I must give, regardless of the expected outcome I‘ve decided to conjure up in my head. Life has taught me to be a master of my thought process, even in my emotions then simply wait with great expectancy, see what life has to offer me!

I’ve learned not to agree with other people’s opinions but to find out what’s true for me, instead. Other people are still learning themselves, learning about life how could they possibly give me a clear picture of me? Fact is, no they cannot. No person, thing or situation has authority over me, unless I decide to make it so, mentally. 

I’ve learned that even when I think things are extremely f*cked up, they’re not. Life’s apparent set backs are just set ups, which prepare us for the greater good that’s truly meant to be brought about, for all of us. My part in this dream called life is simply this, to be present, be aware of how I decide to utilize the energy within me. To be a conscience participant of my creations, not a victim, but a victor of the reality I help to create for myself. 

Life has taught me that the overly prideful will be brought to their knees and we never know if its going to be literal or figuratively, maybe even both. The same thing rings true for the individual who suffers from the “woe is me” syndrome…. if you keep telling life you’re the victim, you will be. We in fact do receive what we believe to be true for us. Yes, we reap what we sow, in other words what we put out will come back, as this is one of many universal laws. 

I have learned giving people authority over your ability to succeed or fail is ultimately a choice. Being angry and bitter causes irritability, cancer and high blood pressure, just to name a few.  You’re only hurting you. Being angry is giving a foothold to a force you don’t want to be a part of, do you?  Focusing on good vibes only can help transform this hurtful thought pattern. 

Life has taught me to keep moving forward and never stop working toward anything I want, never focusing on what I do not. Life has taught me to appreciate each day that’s being offered, as each day is a gift that I gladly accept! As we all know, our next breath is not promised so let’s rejoice and make the most out of life. Feed and focus on only what we wish to create. 

Detach from all expectancy. Allow people to be who they are. Every individual is on their own path of evolution.

When we allow ourselves and other people to freely be themselves while offering acceptance of individuals or circumstances; We do one of the two: 1. Grow in love.  2. Separate in love.

When we decide to grow together in love, relationships and circumstances bring the best out of us, not the worst. Growing in love, we realize there is a continual effort to build one another as well as the relationship. All parties are aware of this and equally participate in the growth of themselves, their relationships and others. There is lightness of flow, happiness that stems from the heart and a willingness to give without expectancy. The relationships provide peace, harmony and unity. The choice to walk in love has been made the key priority.

When we decide to separate in love, we acknowledge the fact that we are not good for one another. The situations or circumstances breed anxiety and fear. The relationship does not promote growth or embody love. There is constant discord and the unwillingness to compromise beyond oneself. Criticism, attack and blame seem constant. However, we don’t judge ourselves or the other parties involved. There is no blame necessary, as we have all played our parts.  The good. The bad. The ugly. We are aware and simply decide we are better off apart, well wishes given. No malice, hatred or bitterness felt. We separate in love, while allowing true fruitfulness of love to take form for others and ourselves.

Awareness of either choice is key. Remember there’s always an effortless flow to what’s supposed to be. In order to allow that flow, you’ve got to move yourself out the way and allow our Creator to dictate what relationships and or circumstances come and go for us. When we allow, we then enable freedom that offers a detachment to the outcomes we have formed for ourselves within. We then no longer feel the need to dictate or control how things take place or unfold outside of us. We simply allow and place our entire expectancy on our Creator, never on a circumstance or an individual.

Decide to make the choice to remain aware our own internal compass, our own continual growth. Decide to allow things to take shape naturally. Decide to drop feelings of animosity, blame and bitterness. As all these emotions come from an unwillingness of acceptance, to what we think or how we feel things should have been. When we attempt to control the outcome of circumstances or relationships we imprison ourselves emotionally and mentally.

    Let go. Be fee. Allow others to do the same damn thing. Repeat! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do I not take offense when I am filled with words, actions and thoughts from the past? How do I learn to love, when the life I have lived, so full of abandonment, addictions and at times even hatred from those who claim to love and support me throughout my existence? What was the meaning of the experiences after all? To avoid love or live in pain either choice is one in the same.

How do I continue to do what’s right – I’ve been taught that life is supposed to be a fight. Now I see I have been misguided, entirely. God said his yoke was easy to carry, burdens light. So why do I feel as though I need to fight? I don’t actually. There aren’t any fights other then the wars created within me, stemming from negative thoughts I have decided to carry.  If I simply let it all go would there be any controversy, it simply would not be.

How and why do I fight to remain in control, control of everything outside of me? I realize this type of thinking is pure insanity. We are to work on things we can change; allow the rest to take form and be shaped by life’s universal energy. So what can I actually control? I can control me! I decide to take control by deciding not to focus on or judge things that’s happening outside of me, but instead do my part to transform my current version of reality. But how to do that is the key and that is to begin by transforming thoughts of fear, anger and hatred to acceptance, freedom and genuine trust in my creator.

I am aware that this type of trust that I speak of can only come from my spirit, my heart. I can control my emotions based on what my spirit tells me, not what my mind thinks it knows. I can control who and what I allow to affect my energy. This is where my work is to be done.

How do I remain true to who I know myself to be, if every person around me is trying to change and shape me into what they want me to be? After all, we were born to be unique, grow into whom we were born to be, a magnificent masterpiece filled with an abundance of love given to circulate more of.

The Lesson: Learn to love in order to dim the pain. Hurt people generally hurt other people way more then they likely know. Love trumps hate but very few people practice love, but would rather argue, disagree and make that their ultimate truth. Closing off to their core, their nature and this is to love, unite and create abundance of everything desirable, everything lovable, everything true within you.

Fact is this – until we change the cycle of hatred, anger and violence we recreate what we hate, as opposed to putting out flames by deviating from the fuel that adds to the flame.  In order to produce what I love, I’ll simply make the shift from the insanity of trying to control things outside of me to working on what’s inside of me and putting on God’s armor daily! (Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV)
