Today, let us see our “negative” emotions as sign posts showing us where there is an opportunity to make a U-turn on our journey. Imagine we are driving in a car. We become lost and confused, not understanding if we are headed in the right or wrong direction. Would we not be grateful to see a sign that helps us figure out where we are? Regardless of whether we have to turn around or not, would we not be grateful for the clarity it gives us? This is what negative emotions offer us – the opportunity to see we are headed in a direction that is not in alignment with our true, loving nature or destination. They are showing us where we can turn around if we choose. They are helping us understand that there is a better way to reach our true destination, the state of peace.
Today, if a negative emotion enters our mind’s door, let us no longer put ourself down for simply being human. Instead, let us see the situation as an opportunity that is showing us which area in our life we no longer want or need to travel. Now, with the gift of time, we can look back and see the wisdom and life lessons that our negative emotions have provided us. God is Love and All. Thus every step along our sacred path is helpful and serves a higher purpose. With this knowledge in hand, we leave the ego’s judgment-centered mindset behind and once again align with the mind of God. Today, when a negative emotion pops up, we offer it our gratitude for helping us recall this is not what we want or who we are. Then we choose its opposite, depart the darkness, and now with love as our companion, we once again align with the light within.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
