I was letting my mind spend too much time dwelling on the wrong-doings of some individuals in the world today – internationally, nationally and locally.
I realised that I needed to get those people and their nastiness, out of my mind.
So – one morning as I was waking up – that time between sleeping and waking –
I pictured Planet Earth as a bowl full of murky water, in which there were eddies and swirls of ill-feeling.
I pictured a pipette full of light.
I dropped one drop of light into the water, and – it cleared – became clear, sparkling and lively.
And now, if the damaging ones come into my mind, I picture the bowl of water, the light, and clarity.
That’s one of the ways in which I deal with thoughts of those people and what they bring into the world. Otherwise, they can drag me down.
I need some lightness of heart at the present time.
Planet Earth needs some lightness of heart at the present time.
