Be careful and caring about the things you welcome into your awareness.
Darkness that you are habitually conscious of wires your brain into dark habits.
Unhealthy habits become addictions.
Deep awareness of that which is light and good will gradually attract that which is light and good.
Positive consciousness becomes positive action.
Repeated action becomes habits that mold your life, your character.
Awareness of that which is evil is necessary; but you need not dwell on it.
If you can change it, make it a cause.
If you cannot, or it is beyond the scope of your interests, talents or abilities, let it go.
There are others more suited to bear those burdens.
“Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof.”
Jesus Christ, Matt 6:34
But you and I are sons and daughters of God.
We can be in this world but not of it – beginning with our awareness of light and good.
Be thankful for all that is good and dwell upon it.
Perfect timing as I was just have a conversation with some friends about world events and what people can do to better humanity. After hearing how overwhelming it is to some of my friends and feeling sad about it you came along and posted these very practical and wise words to bring me back into balance. What struck me the most was that others are more well suited to carry the burden. Carrying the burden for others is done in love. That itself can bring a sense of peace.
