There have been many emotions floating around inside of me these past 3 weeks or so. I got the wind knocked out of my proverbial sails recently by someone important to me and since then I have been wrestling with some dark feelings. I am the first one who will post an inspirational proverb about not letting others define your well-being but sometimes being human takes over and I fall victim to my wounded ego and heart.
What to do?
After typing the above question I stopped writing for a bit because I did not know what to put after it. I got distracted and moved away from writing as it was filling me with emotion again, I needed a break from it. I then went to my email and there was my weekly message from Dr. Dyer. You may not fully understand why this man is so important to me or that when I have moments of questioning he somehow turns up, formless but filled with the power to transcend. Once again he came when I longed for a new direction. His words are taken from this weeks newsletter.
“Be immersed in and surrounded by peace. Your Highest Self only wants you to be at peace. It does not judge, compare, or demand that you be defeat anyone, or be better than anyone
Go beyond the restriction of the physical plane. The purpose of the Highest Self is to assist you in this. Create an inner sanctuary that is yours alone. Go to this silent inner retreat as often as you can, and let go of all attachments to the external world of the ego.
Refuse to defend yourself to anyone or anything on the earth plane. Stay within your higher energy pattern. Use your inner light for alignment and allow those who disagree to have their own points of view.
Surrender and trust in the wisdom that created you. This trust is your corner of freedom and it will always be yours.”
These words were the silent breeze that I needed to pick myself up and get back to peace. Today is also free yoga day at work and I will incorporate Dr. Dyer’s words of wisdom into my practice. I ache to feel better and I know I am just about back to where I long to be.
Namaste everyone. I will have something more wonderful to write about next week, I promise.
