We can never take credit for our actions, wether they bring positive or negative outcomes, because what inspires them is coming from a source beyond our human perception.
We are constantly sliding from one extreme to the other of “the see-saw of action”:
ON THE LEFT
Inspiration come from memories and emotions.
Mind is engaged in the past and future.
Decisions are made from a sense of separateness; hence, the outcome is less beneficial for most.
The gains of few are achieved in detriment of others.
ON THE RIGHT
Inspiration comes from the Divine.
Mind is engaged in the present.
Decisions are made from a sense of oneness; hence, the outcome is more beneficial for most.
The gains are for all, creating more sustainable ecosystems.
If Free Will isn’t controlling our lives, what is? AWARENESS or UNAWARENESS of the existence of the sources of inspiration at any given moment. Ultimately this AWARENESS will give us the power to CONSCIOUSLY CHOOSE between being inspired by memories (pain bodies of the past) or by the Divine in the present.
So what’s our job in this life time? CLEANING, CLEANING, CLEANING… Memories from the past, expectations toward the future. Cleaning our relationships by nurturing honesty in them. Cleaning our mind by mindfully selecting what we listen, read and talk about. Cleaning our bodies by paying attention to its needs in food and exercise. Cleaning our souls by being equally grateful for the pleasant and painful experiences… and using our breaths to heal the wounds of the past.
