The World is Our Reflection

av-_62“First, realize that your world is only a reflection of yourself

and

then, stop finding fault with the reflection.”

Nisargadatta

What a great concept!!  The world I experience is just a reflection of what I believe about myself. Are you experiencing any judgment of yourself today?  If not, give yourself a high five!  If you are in any degree, then join the rest of us. And because we are human there is a tendency to judge and to punish ourselves for the slightest infraction. And no one can do it better than we can. So, let’s do what Nisargadatta says……..STOP.

Sometimes we think if we don’t find fault with ourselves, then we will never change….we will just do the same old things again and again. Do we really want to keep finding fault with ourselves in order to change? That is painful and doesn’t make sense. If we stop faulting ourselves and begin to accept those parts of ourselves we judge and to forgive ourselves completely, then we will create beautiful transformations of ourselves based in love. And then we stop judging others as well and love everything as it is……while working to make changes from an open heart. If we want our world to shine more brightly in love, it starts with ourselves.  Let’s begin in this present moment!  Andrea
