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 doesn’t have to stem from a 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 here on the planet. For every negative action, we’d seem to accumulate or attract more darkness. It really comes down to choosing a positive solution, forgiveness and 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 nice back, love them anyway. You don’t know what they’re going through and they may need your help”.
Together we learned to listen to our conscience, think positively and made it a point to come from a positive, solution-based mentality. Each time we’d slip, we were there to help the other get back on track. We noticed dark energies and matters weren’t so strong facing happiness, positivity, hope and love. In fact, they downright disappeared 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 (they keep us more separated than connected), 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 partake in expectations, limitations or manipulation. Knowing we have the choice and getting to make it confidentially is empowering to the self and others.
It’s important to us to choose friends wisely. There are a few lovely people we do enjoy spending time with, that are vibrating at beautiful energies, who are also working on themselves and helping inspire others. Together we get enlightened, raise our vibration and awareness. It’s way more fun than being enabled, focusing on negativity or partying the night away.
We can’t stress how beautiful it is now that we’ve simplified and reorganized life based on waking up and going 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 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.
