New beginnings are always a step into the unknown. Your present environment may be one of chaos and total confusion, but it will evolve into a state of peace and growth. More than ever, this is a time to maintain your principles and draw upon your awareness of higher knowledge. Deal with your problems one at a time and act on the most important considerations first. There is no need to feel overpowered. You have the power and ability to resolve the disorder and establish a superior situation in the future.
New beginnings are an ideal time to move from an attached mind to a detached one. The vast majority of people on this planet live out their lives knowing only the attached mind, which fluctuates from positive to negative as outside conditions change—from happiness and joy down through neutrality, to the basement of emotions: depression, anger, hostility and fear.
A detached mind allows fluctuation only from positive to neutral as outside conditions change. You accept all the joy and happiness life has to offer, but your state of mind drops no further than neutral because you understand you can’t control others or manipulate unalterable realities.
May peace and light be with us all,
Any time you get upset with someone, it is a self-created karmic test to see how much you’ve learned and whether you’ll need to be tested in the future. Did you respond to the situation with compassion or neutrality? Did you respond with anger and negativity? Until you learn that negative, fear-based responses don’t work, similar future situations are assured.
My wife, Roberta, has a very wise Spirit Guide who said this to her one day: “It will bother you until it doesn’t.”
Be aware that you get upset because you had expectations of approval or control—of attaining the approval of others or controlling their actions or reactions. Simply stated, your expectations conflict with what is. It would be impossible for you to be upset about anything if your expectations were not in conflict with the current situation.
Ask yourself, “Where do I get the right to expect others to be the way I want them to be?” You don’t want them to expect you to live up to their expectations, do you? In the future, every time you start to get upset, remind yourself that “It will bother you until it doesn’t,” that your expectations are in conflict with what is.
Peace and Light,
