Hello world. The following was written 11/16/2016.
A brother and I had a discussion about what we see and choose to see.
My brother shares, "I still hang on to BEAUTIFUL things like music, nature, colours in fabric, clothes ( fashion), food, beautifully formed creatures including humans. I LOVE things of BEAUTY!! Do I need to let go of those too???"
My response, "Let go the value you have placed on them. The meaning you have given them. Instead accept them as they are as different and unique. They resonate or they do not. In that way you are not judging anything to be this or that. You are accepting it as it is instead."
My brother states, "YES!! You are right! Yet somehow I want to make BEAUTY a way of living! My form of self expression through beauty in some way!"
My response, "Then change the way you view the world and yourself. Change your mind and you change the world…"
My brother responds, "Now that is the TRUTH!! I am still very much in the middle of the battleground forgetting what I was fighting for! Of all things I was fighting for was for LOVE and BEAUTY. And that's an OXYMORON!!! I just MUST STOP and rise above the battleground and just BE!"
My response, "The Mirror will reflect back to you what you believe defines you. What you believe defines you is what you believe defines the world you perceive. Look within at what you are believing to be true about what defines you and you will be given a choice to choose again. For everything you believe defines you was taught to you. It is learned and can be unlearned if one is willing. Everything is a choice in what we want to believe. We always have a choice and no one may make our choices for us."
Blessings on your journeys my brothers. Hugs and love. You are loved. I love you.
