We can live our lives as if it is all wrong. We can look at the world and talk about how this or that should be different. We can critique and criticize, but what do we accomplish? In the end, how does any of it make a difference?
If we’re talking about acceptance of the present moment, of being aware in the moment we are in, and allowing for all possibilities while holding our intentions for the highest good of ourselves and everyone else, how can we then also criticize it? How can we also condemn it?
When we criticize or condemn we block the flow of energy that is moving through us in that moment of feeling the energy of condemnation. Its energy blocks the flow of divine energy. We are in a place of resistence. We are saying “no” to the moment.
When we are open and allowing for the flow of energy from the universe to move through us, we say yes to what is happening in that moment because it is there and it is happening, while we also hold the intention for something different or better or more desirable.
This is how we create our lives. This is how we create our world. This is how we create and create and create.
It is a strange concept, I’m certain, for many to consider, this saying “yes” to the atrocities of the world. But being in acceptance in the present moment of that atrocity being there, and intending for something better, is different than condoning or encouraging the atrocious act or situation.
We can’t just say ‘I’m going to be in the moment and accepting” only some of the time for some things, only the things I like, for instance. That is not life. That is cherry picking. We must say yes to it all, and learn to live in the joyful sorrow that is life.
Can we create a world that is without sorrow? Sure we can. We can create our own individual worlds of joyfulness and bliss. We can live in the realization that we are the divine manifestations of the divine universe and live in that created world from that point of reference, so that all is divine in our conscious awareness. We can create that for ourselves. But, will there still be sorrow and dispair? I don’t know, it depends. It depends on where attention is paid. If we give our energy to those things which cause us sorrow, then they will be evident in our conscious awareness. They will be our experience. If we give our attention to something else, something that feels better, that will be our conscious awareness.
