from Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments by Kent M. Keith.
Only you know the reason for your actions. You can choose to operate from your ego (Edge God Out) or from our Higher Self. The feeling of bliss surrounding your choice will tell you if your thoughts and actions are originating outside of your own self-interest. Gary Zukav talks about this as the difference between External Power (Egocentric) or Authentic Power, the power that comes from choosing to serve others with a big picture of the greater good in mind.
Self-check this week before you send that email, before you accuse someone of anything, before you act from a place of pain and fear within yourself.
Allow others a little space when you see them acting from a place of fear and doubt. Retreat, with love, so they can process an overreaction to a simple situation. We are here to heal and to heal as a community.
Do good anyway!
