…holiday cheer, and great food”
There’s a lack of acceptance to the concept of grace. Far too many view this as a reward of sorts. We only earn the right to gain a seat at the viewing, by awakening each day. Within our arising to meet life, we are tasked with choosing a perspective in which we view the lives before us. Thousands of years of philosophical contemplation have molded the modern perspective for the billions of people living today. These perspectives vary as widely as the cultural distinctions between our species, yet this yearning for that sense of peace from the meaning of our existence transcends the litany of differences. We are born with a yearning to belong, to a person, group, society, or a culture. Something larger than our own reality, something re-enforcing this yearning within. This voice calls to all individuals in a variety of tones and volumes, thus we are not collectively called to the same place.
Dr. Chopra speaks of the memories we cling to, and the fact scientists have yet to identify this simple phenomenon on a cellular level within the brain. He attributes them to a part of the consciousness we live within. Somehow that suggests to me the ability to remember our lives relates to the size and scope of our reality.
Acceptance, not Understanding delivers us at the steps of grace with internal peace. The proper balance of fear and confidence is the quintessential struggle of life. Knowing yourself through introspection is fundamental to the cycle of life’s acceptance and understanding.
