SIMPLE EQUATION TO LIFE
Remember the old cartoons showing an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, fighting for good and evil? It’s just like that and it doesn’t have to stem from a specific religion. We like to think of it as though each time we act from a good place, we’re adding to the good we’ve done on the planet. For every negative action, we seem to accumulate or attract more darkness. It really comes down to choosing a positive solution, finding forgiveness and/or letting go.
Our parents used to tell us “treat others the way you want to be treated“. They should have followed up with “and if they don’t treat you nicely back, love them anyway. You don’t know what they’re going through and they may need your help”.
Together, we are learning to listen to our conscience, think positively, have discipline and we are making it a point to come from a positive, solution-based, mentality. Each time we slip, we are there to help the other get back on track. We noticed dark energies and matters aren’t so strong facing happiness, positive vibes, hope, acceptance and love. In fact, they downright disappear from our reality.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – MLK Junior.
Showing and spreading love and the good vibes becomes addictive. We both noticed the positivity we were attracting since our change of mindset. We love turning frowns upside down, inspiring others to see the love and life they’re capable of and how together we can shift reality into a caring, proactive, cooperative and exciting one! It really is a simple equation!
We ignore the news, (most of it is negative and wants to keep us in fear), we have no television (t.v. inflicts some very scary vibrations on the human psyche), we only use one cheap phone (these days, they keep people separated instead of connected to one another), we don’t read newspapers or magazines (they continue to beat into us competition, negativity, fear and consumerism), we don’t scour the internet for entertainment (we use that time to connect and get grounded) or listen to the radio (it only offers a tiny sliver of the music actually available). We don’t surround ourselves with negative people and we don’t entertain negative behaviors. Knowing we have the choice and getting to make it confidentially is empowering to the self and others.
We can’t stress how beautiful it is now that we’ve began using this simple equation to life. It allows us to wake up and go to sleep happy, no matter the state of the world or the obstacles in our way. Less distractions are proving to offer more experiential benefits too and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s like oil separating from water and everything is clear: simple is the way to go.
