Today I am commenting on someone else’s blog post. The following is from Randy with the LCA Project (The Love, Courage and Achievement Project). I just loved what he had to say and wanted to share it with my readers.
“Years ago, I watched a sci-fi flick that really made an impression. A starship encountered a mysterious force which was immediately perceived as a threat. The crew prepared for battle. For every defensive move the starship made, the force prepared an equally powerful protective maneuver. Moments before impact, the captain realized that the force was automatically reacting to their consciousness. At the last instant, to the crew’s astonishment, he ordered all defenses dropped…and they safely moved on to their destination.
Could this dynamic possibly be true for us as human beings? We know that everyone has a presence, a way they present themselves in the world in different circumstances. If this presence is one of fear, anger and defensiveness…isn’t it likely that the people around them will react accordingly to protect themselves? What irony that in putting up emotional walls, we push away the very love we yearn for!
Can you recall a time when you were in a profoundly loving state of mind? What did that feel like? How did others respond to you? And what did you attract to yourself when you were in that beautiful state of consciousness? So is it possible that living in the experience of love, might be the best shield of protection we could ever ask for?
How do we do this? What works for me, is to move to a place of unconditional acceptance and deep appreciation for others, myself and for life itself. The more I can do this, the greater my peace…greater my joy…and the less resistance I generate around me.
So what are you putting out there? What do others get from the way you present yourself, before a single word is spoken? And most importantly, what can you do to live in that magical place of the heart, where miracles surround you? With love and respect, Randy”
We think we have to be on the defensive in order to survive in this world but as the above says, just the opposite is true. I would love to challenge my readers to try this, very consciously, and report back with your responses.
