As we grow and consciously evolve, we will find wisdom in many situations. However, we should watch how attached to those opinions we become. We often will want to tell other people how to be, and get very attached to what is “supposed” to happen.
The main point of this talk is that once you find yourself with strong opinions, use that as an anchor to wake up. Even if you are morally correct, once you are attached to an idea, you start to become just as lost as someone doing wrong. It is much more important to bring presence to a situation, than the right action.
New-agers often get lost here. It’s not about getting to the right beliefs, it’s about seeing all your beliefs. It may be right to not want war, but as we fight for that idea, we begin another war, or argument, or conflict. That’s when the idea of being right, or fixing the situation breaks down.
We may have opinions about how other people should live, eat, and behave. All those opinions can come from a deep caring, and our advise can often be sound. However, when we get to attached to our idea we’ve gotten a little lost. Learn acceptance instead of righteousness.
