Your actions can’t be hidden forever. Eventually the light will shine upon what you’ve been doing. Let it expose the good works and actions you’ve been putting forth. But be cautious of the things you do, especially over the next three weeks. Make sure you’re mindful and avoid the negative intolerant actions. The light of the sun can burn you, just as it can help things grow to sustain you.
It’s not enough to give your beliefs lip service and then put negative thoughts into action when you walk through the temple doors. What you say and what you do carry more weight and cannot be overridden by those few moments of spiritual devotion.
Many put forth an effort to be compassionate to others during this season of peace and giving. But during all the other moments of the year, they express intolerance and disdain. If you’re going to claim an affiliation with a spiritual path, you must walk that road all the year long. And in every action you take.
Not only in the thoughts you think to yourself, or the deeds you express in your community or in your family. But also, in all those little moments of expressed energy when you send a tweet or hit the share button on a story that demeans or criticizes someone else, be it a person or group.The written word can often hold more energy than what you say out loud in private to your closest friends.
It’s easy in our society today to get caught up in the negative. Show you have greater strength and courage to stand up for compassion, honesty and caring. There’s no better time to start that pattern of tolerance for others than right now during this season of peace and love that spans the world over.
Hold that feeling of compassion and caring for others in the middle of the year when there’s no holiday to celebrate and no greeting cards to remind you of the real lessons of spirit. You can become the light that shines all year long as a beacon for your faith of peace, love and compassion. And you might even pull some of that energy toward you for your own benefit by doing so.
