Tender Spots.

Dear Gentle Soul.

Inhaling…

Exhaling…

No need to control anything.  Just allow your breath, and watch the rhythm of it as the air flows in and out…

Bring yourself to your center…

…Now remember who you are

Let us remember that we are much more than any label the world might ascribe to us as parent, spouse, sibling, doctor, lawyer, teacher, banker…

Whenever possible today, let us remember the qualities that we know exist within our Essence, as well as the ones we have more difficulty connecting to and expressing.  Just because we have difficulty connecting to and expressing a quality, does not mean it is not there at our very core.

If we can imagine the quality, it exists there at our center, even if we have trouble accessing it at times.  If we can envision it, the energy of that quality exists.  If we focus on it, it expands. 

Today, let us remember this is true for every single human being on the planet.

Remember also that each one of us is doing the best we can with what we know and with the resources we have at this current moment in time.

Remember that none of us see through the same pair of eyes; all of us have unique perspectives; and we each have varied values and priorities based on our particular set of life experiences leading up to this point.

It may be tempting to look at another with judgement when they are behaving in ways that make no sense to us.  Or in ways that feel very personally critical, disrespectful, or mean…

Today, let us remember that the man who is criticizing you; the woboy-633014_960_720man who is disrespecting you; anyone who is being mean to you, is covering up a much smaller, more vulnerable aspect of themselves.

Today, let us remember that we all have tender spots that sometimes we are unaware of.  We may have spent so many years protecting those tender spots with criticism, disrespect, sarcasm, defensiveness, etc., that it becomes second nature to react this way.

Today, let us look for the tender spot in everyone we come in contact with. 

Today, when we find it, let us offer love, kindness and understanding, even if the other person cannot see their own tender spot; even if they resist.

Today, may we let them have their own time to find their way back to their Essence, while, in the meantime we open up our hearts big enough to love ourselves and them, warts and all.  Even  if we must do so from afar.

Today, let us remember that we can offer Love whether the other person is consciously aware of receiving it or not.  The energy will get through; and there is no doubt we will feel better too. 

Today, let us be aware of the Ego Stories that tell us that Love is just a silly little word; and instead let us allow ourselves to plug into the most powerful energy in the universe:  Our souls know that Love is the answer to every question.

Today, let us look for any question that needs answering and see how Love fits

So much Love to you today… 

“Love is the absence of judgement.”
~ Dalai Lama

Breathe consciously, express Love, and remember:

I am brilliant;

I am magnificent;

I am a being of Love and Light.

I am here to bring my Essence Self to every experience of my Life.
