At the end of the day, perhaps the most significant question we need to ask ourselves is this: Are we letting the conditions around us dictate how we feel?
We must learn to remain observers of our circumstances. It’s challenging at first, but we must understand that every event is neutral, and it is our perception of them and the stories we tell about them that infuse them with meaning. Only when we learn to detach from the duality that demands we name an event or person “good” or “bad” will we realize true freedom. This non-dual position prevents us from remaining a servant to our egoic reactivity, and instead empowers us to decide for ourselves how we want to show up in the world.
It is not the conditions of life that dictate who we are; it is our alignment with source, and the extent to which we are allowing our souls to attune to this high vibration, which ultimately determine who we are and how we feel at any given moment.
