It’s important that we see ourselves the way others see us – not with the eyes, but with an inner sense.
What do I mean by that?
What we see with our eyes is limited. Even facial expressions and actions of the body are easily misinterpreted. What looks like a frown directed at us could simply be an absent-minded stare; disrespectful body language might be the reflection of someone’s inner attitude toward himself, not you at all. We simply cannot trust our eyes.
“Half of what you see, none of what you hear.”
The energy we carry with us, the feeling others get when we enter the room, our presence – this is what the inner senses pick up. It is our transmission, our broadcast, our “vibe.” And it tells everything about us. It is what children pick up on, what animals detect instantly, and what everyone knows, if only subconsciously.
The weather lags the seasons – the coldest months occur after the longest nights; the hottest days come as much as two months after Summer Solstice. Similarly, our energy signature lags our current disposition – we cannot change by merely putting on a happy face. It takes time, perhaps lifetimes, for Power to come.
Bad news? Not really. You are what you are. You can be comfortable with that – more secure, less doubtful. Accept what is, and with the self-confidence that comes with that, you can take command of your vessel and steer it toward the light.
This takes great humility.
