What Perceptions Do We Have of Ourselves and Others?

Coming back from our vacation takes time to settle back in, being waited on and being chauffeured around beautiful sights, over indulging on beautiful food all of it spoils you.  Then you arrive home put everything in the washer, catch up with the garden, and its like you have never been away, and two days later, you feel like you need another holiday to get over the first.

Except you return home holding those wonderful memories of the peace and the beauty of your surroundings, as well as the companionship of those new acquaintances you have met for such a short time whom you will never see again. But for that short time their energy and humour enriched your own experience and you hope your own company enriched theirs.

You get back into your routines and before long our vacations become a distant memory with photos stored in folders soon to be forgotten.

It got me to thinking. What if this was the last vacation ever, what if this week was the last week ever in this reality, how would you spend it? Would you be more adventurous, dare to do things a little differently? Would you laugh more and tell those that surround you how much they mean to you. Would you stand up and be more assertive, would you find your voice to speak your mind?  Would you be kinder and more Giving? Or would nothing change, as we sit within the protective layers we build up around ourselves.

We spend so much of our time in fear, fearing how we look as we fuss over our hair, fearing what other people may think of us, fearing what if this or what if that. It often stops us from enjoying the moment. It often stops us from being spontaneous, and joyful. Doing things like getting up on an empty dance floor when your feet tap along and are itching to dance to the rhythm of the music, yet you are afraid you may look a fool.  

Osborne House Queen Victoria’s Holiday retreat

We’ve all been there I am sure, pointing our fingers, sniggering at someone’s moves or how they are dressed.  It’s so easy to judge, and we ALL of us do it all of the time in small ways, we often aren’t even aware we are doing it.

We met a man in his mid-forties travelling with his aged mother for the briefest of conversations, he and his mother were staying at the same hotel. He had obvious learning difficulties, yet the joy he brought to everyone in his presence was obvious, and what a gift for all who received his spontaneity.

Working as a support worker for nearly 12 years with such people within mental health I saw how his mother had not mollycoddled him through life, but how she had taught him to find his own personality and independence. He would go to the bar, buying drinks, he would often sit by himself while his mother had retired for the evening, but it wasn’t long before others gravitated towards him and he would join in perfectly intelligent conversations. And all the while his smile was infectious, as was his laughter.  His JOY in life spread out and made all who met him joyful as well.  What a Gift!.

We need no status, no title in life to be great. This man lived in each of his moments, he paid perfect attention to those in conversation, his eyes shone with his inner beauty and by the end of our trip he had made many new friends, whose lives I am sure will be forever touched by his presence.

Observing others is something I often do, sitting in my own quiet space I see perhaps deeper than many into the hearts of strangers. I had been asking my own internal inner questioning as I sought to regain my own inner balance from the things I know are to come in this world.

And upon my returning to the world at large, it seems the plan is now well under way that is going to shape All of our lives in the future.

But sometimes our answers come in the strangest of ways, I got my answer. I cannot, we cannot change others and certainly not the world.  The only person we can change is ourselves.  We can change our own perceptions of reality; we can look for the good in others and not focus upon the bad. We can see the beauty of the world and focus in on that. That man saw beauty in everything around him, and he became that beauty. He shone so bright with his inner beauty.

If we only touch One other with Joy to uplift their spirit, for them to see the beauty within themselves our mission may already be completed.  But neither can we turn a blind eye to the evil in this world or the destruction of our Earth Mother.

There is a time to speak and a time when we should be silent. There is also a time when we don’t have to hold back, a time for everyone to speak out, and not be afraid of speaking out.  We are living in times when those of us who are seekers of the truth are being silenced.  You have to ask yourself why?

Why be afraid of Truth?  Unless you have been led to believe a Lie!!

 We who have been caged within this Matrix system too long are now waking up to this reality. And the gift we all need to be sharing is that of Love, Unity and Harmony.  

 

We are responsible for ourselves and we have to share our creative passionate energy by first going deep within ourselves as we sort out the wheat and the chaff within our own lives before we condemn others.

I am far from perfect and still need to do much more internal work. But I am getting there, I am now comfortable within my own skin, but we have to put the work in, it may take years to clear away the hidden layers we build up throughout our lives. 

Creation has given birth to us because we are a living essential part of creation, with a responsibility to ourselves as well as others.

Use your own Gifts and Wisdom wisely as we perceive and create our future reality.

Keep Walking your Path and Seeking Your Truth. 

Love and Blessings.

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
