I’ll be spending June in my country of origin, Finland. It will be magical as Finland is blessed to have nightless nights and endless Light during summer. It’s a huge contrast to winter’s polar nights.
This reminds me that we appreciate so much more Light when we have experienced darkness, at least I do! The dualist reality where we are living is based on learning through polarities good-bad, hot-cold, sorrow-joy and so on. They are all part of life but what we do with them is up to us.
Often we categorize our experiences and give labels to them. But what if we would focus on finding a learning from each experience. That way we might be able to let go of some labels and just see more clearly what is/was.
Why this is important? Because the labels can make us to stay stuck with the past events. You can test this. Just scan your life from this moment backwards until you find an event that has a negative label. Observe if that event has an emotional charge: what happens in your body, what thoughts are coming forward, what are you feeling? If you sense the charge, you can start processing this event in order to make peace with it.
As long as you are not in peace with your past, you have a hot button that people might keep pushing. This might trigger you to think, say and do something that you might regret later.
But it is possible to release those hot buttons. It is a process that you can start by observing your thoughts - what are the judgments that you have made? What kind of situations are pushing your button?
Just imagine for a moment how your life would be if you would have absolute inner peace with that past event… It is possible and it is available for you.
It might sound too simple to just observe but it is so powerful because it will start rising your level of awareness. But you don’t need to believe what I say, you can test this! Just start with observing yourself during 1 day and write down your observations. It might bring interesting insights!
Have a lovely June!
