looking in the mirror

looking in the mirror

Looking in the mirror of my life today I did not like what I saw.  I saw someone who was critical of others above himself.  I saw someone who has been extremely critical of others for a very long time.   I saw someone who was petty, judging, convicting and condemning.. 

In the mirror of my life today, I caught a glimpse of a person I had been judging I and saw that they were not what I had been making them out to be. 

I caught myself acting out, judging without consideration.  Certainly not the behavior of one who is “advanced”.  Certainly not the behavior of one who sees the face of creation in everything.  Certainly not the behavior of one who holds onto humbleness, love and appreciation of beauty in all life.  Certainly not the behavior of impeccable gratitude.  Definitely not the behavior of one who maintains a graceful perceptual shift beyond pettiness.

Today the mirror of my life taught me a very valuable lesson.  The lesson I learned is to replace my  judgement of others with Knowing Humbleness.  The knowing is the knowing that others can only operate according to their reactive inventory.  The humbleness comes from knowing that each one is the vessel of God.

The answer, the shift, is humbleness in the “Face of Creation”
