Zig-Zagging to the Zenith May 22, 2010

As we continue moving forward on the Spiritual Path, we zig-zag slowly around and around the mountainside.  Eventually, the clouds part ever so slightly, and we see the Zenith waiting to welcome us. 

We eagerly join our Higher Self, and look around in awe at the view. 

We see innocence in the actions of the calloused.  We see the hurt behind the angry words.  The world viewed through the eyes of Spirit is a vastly different world than that viewed through the clouded lens of Ego. 

We begin to feel true peace of mind as Ego-concerns fade. 

We focus less on what others think of us, and more on how we feel about ourselves.  We choose happiness over being right more often.  We see that others are doing the best they can, based on the experiences they’ve  had.  We view their actions more generously, and less judgmentally. 

We embrace our Higher Self and exclaim in happiness, “Wow!  This view is awesome!  I wish you had gotten my attention sooner.  Man, if I had known about this place, I could have saved myself from a ton of unnecessary pain and anguish.” 

Spirit nods knowingly. 

Life is beautiful when viewed from a Spiritual perspective.

Once we reach the Zenith, the challenge shifts from “attaining enlightenment” to maintaining our present moment perspective . . . even when faced with the daily challenges of life.

I’ve recently been very hurt by words, I’m profoundly grateful for this post.
Thank you.

Yay!

Most angry words tossed my way these days merely cause me to “pause and reflect.” If I’m not satisfied with how I handled something, I apologize.

Otherwise, I just let the angry words drift away into the nothingness they are ~ rather than absorbing them into my being.

Generally, it’s not the angry words that hurt . . . it’s how we choose to process them.

Glad that this post resonated with you right now. : )

Thanks for sharing this with me. I know that I am closer to approaching the Zenith, but I still have part of the climb ahead.

I know the first time that things “clicked” and I had that “aha! moment” . . . I assumed that things would be smooth sailing from that point forward.

Well, of course, I was wrong. What would we do here if we had NOTHING left to learn. 😀
