Tears lead to tears
Have you ever felt that society is tearing apart at its seams? Has this feeling been so deep that it produces frustration, anxiety and anger, perhaps even tears (lacrimal fluid)?
Frustration, anxiety and uncertainty, left unchecked, can be debilitating. But remember to ask, what is the truth?
By definition, [ tear - noun - a hole or split in something caused by it having been pulled apart forcefully.]
Take this definition, and overlay it with the purpose of lacrimal tears (to continually release fluid which cleanses and protects the eye's surface)
When you allow the tears of your life to produce tears in your eyes, you have let the environment dictate how you feel and react. This is not negative, per se. In fact, it may cleanse and protect your mind, body and spirit. However, this must be intentional and used for growth.
History shows us that to allow your environment to control your emotions is not an ideal way to live life - stated differently, to crash ashore based upon the erratic waves of events.
Fortunately for you, you are the captain at the helm of your ship. When something has been pulled apart forcefully, you may decide how to either mend the situation or to reduce, reuse and recycle the event to create a novel experience.
Recall the words of Marcus Aurelius, “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”
This upcoming week, how will you cleanse and protect your thoughts, responses and mindset through the discernment of truth?
