Man in the Mirror Moment

Many years ago I was out with a friend and trying to get information from a service person who didn’t have what I wanted. This person wasn’t interested in looking deeply into the matter and in my frustration I became curt and condescending. Later, my friend asked me how I could behave in such a way and claim to be nonviolent? How could my walk stray so far from my spiritual talk?

I had no excuse, no justification. I could only agree that I’d behaved badly and regretted it. This wasn’t enough for my friend. She was angry. She became curt and condescending to me. I quickly got a much stronger dose, and much more personal dose than I’d given out. Spiritual Grace magnified my behavior and brought it right to my doorstep and IN MY FACE!

In that moment I was given the opportunity to practice what I’d forgotten earlier. I had to work to remind myself of the truth: that my friend was my mirror and my teacher. She was not my enemy even though it felt like she was attacking me. She was simply reflecting to me my own behavior. I took responsibility for my choices and for the mirror.

I was the “man in the mirror.” As the song says:
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

My invitation to you is to look at what is showing up in your life and begin to take total 100% responsibility for it. To not allow yourself for even one second to entertain blaming how you feel on anyone else or any situation or circumstance in your life.

When you take 100% responsibility for what you experience you will be begin to experience living in a truly masterful way. In large part, this is what my year-long Masterful Living Course is all about. It’s profoundly life-changing. It’s deeply transformative and it’s amazing how completely possible it is to live a truly miraculous life.

Living a truly miraculous and masterful life does REQUIRE a willingness to take responsibility, and to move out of victimhood. In Spirit there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide and no one to blame, there’s only choosing Love or not. Choosing Love IS taking responsibility and moving completely out of BLAME forever!

Affirmation:

I AM willing to choose Love now!
