When I teach I talk a great deal about dominion. Dominion is a way of looking at life that really facilitates deepening your connection with your spirit. Symbolically I envision dominion as a sphere with each position representing a different spot with a slightly different perspective. When I view life that way it is much easier for me to have love, understanding and acceptance of everyone and accept their choices, no matter what they are.
This morning I watched the sunrise from the beach here in Hawaii. The air is balmy and the water was deliciously warm as it swirled around my feet and I felt so loved and grateful. As I stood there I thought about this sphere called earth and the idea of dominion. A little over a week ago I was standing in the middle of Stonehenge watching the sunrise while I did a powerful ceremony. The air was crisp and cold and there was magic in the air. Same planet, just different places on that sphere.
As I sit on the lanai looking at the ocean feeling very peaceful and loved, there are people half way around the world violently dying because of car bombs. I certainly prefer my perspective, but if I judge war as bad and wrong I am no longer at peace. The atmosphere of earth equally embraces us all. As I deepen my connection with my spirit it becomes easier for me to embrace everyone’s choice.
The concept that there are no victims on this planet only volunteers is challenging at times and it is also very empowering. I made a series of choices that allowed me to be sitting here this morning writing this. If I hadn’t been willing to change my perspective years ago I wouldn’t be here. Every moment of every day I have the opportunity to deepen my connection with my spirit or my filter system. Whenever I judge anyone or anything I am arguing for my limited perspective.
Today I can choose love more often than fear and what a gift that is. I can watch the news and send love to all the participants instead of judging the violence. I was thinking about the planet and global warming and pollution. With each thought I can pollute the world with my judgment and fears or resonate love and acceptance. I have found staying in a place of love challenging at times, but the more I practice it the better it feels.
Sending out bunches of aloha blessings and love,
