Much of what seems so real in this physical dimension is not the entire truth of who we are and/or what we can do. Over the last couple of years, I have allowed myself to both explore and expand beyond the physical, mental and emotional boundaries I thought were rigidly in place in this world. What I found was an aspect of self that I never knew was there nor believed could be possible. I offer these wonderings and wanderings as an invitation to see beyond what meets the eyes in your own life!

I Don't Resonate With That ...

Still life I painted as a teen ~ "You need dark areas to show light."
Recently, on a segment of Perspective Reboot® with Kristi Borst1, I shared my perspective that our judgment of "another" is never really about them. This understanding was integral to my owning "what others think of you is none of your business." What "pushes our buttons" in another's behavior is a mirror for us of what WE (at some level) wish to change, heal, and shed. With this insight/knowledge, I have this new appreciation of judgment as a huge opportunity for self growth. Therefore, while others may say "stay out of judgment", I feel we need to sit with our judgment and understand what it is telling us about OURSELVES!

"I don't resonate with that!" I hear and read this often these days. Recently, I had a flash of knowing that "I don't resonate with that" is merely judgment wearing a fancy "new age" cloak. What if the things that we don't resonate with are similarly there to show us something. After all, there is truly no "good" and "bad", there merely IS. All is in a state of perfection and bliss. It is merely our reception and perceptions which may act as lenses or veils to this ultimately simplistic truth.

When I was a preteen my parents treated me to art lessons. One of the lessons that has stayed with me is "you need dark areas to show light". You see, you cannot paint a highlight on an object that is already light. The highlight will appear even more intensely when placed on the darkest possible tone ... you must have contrast to show contrast.

Please, when you feel drawn to say "I don't resonate with that/him/her", go deeper. Explore why! See if this incident (judgment) is some type of mirror to you. Otherwise, if you merely walk away without a thought, you may have missed a golden key that's been served up to you on a silver platter. I believe it is through the darkness or "bad" things we see that we have the greatest opportunity to emerge into the light!

Love and light,
Kristi
