As you step out into the light of the moon, be compassionate for there are many who cannot see the light in themselves. As you awaken to your purpose and passion, be compassionate for there are many who do not know what that passion is. It’s easy to think that you are a compassionate person until you are confronted with someone going through real pain or hardship and then you find yourself unable to respond with anything but indifference or even hostility. Breathe deeply with your eyes closed and notice where your breath feels restricted or tight. You may notice that your chest feels tight or constricted, or perhaps there is tension in your shoulders or back. As you breathe deeply again, let go of these areas and imagine them releasing any tension they might have accumulated over time until they feel completely relaxed again. Focus on this feeling for a few moments before moving on to the next step.
Be compassionate with yourself for you have also walked in the shadows of darkness. Feeling alone, misunderstood, and unworthy is a common human experience. It’s something you go through at some point in your life. And while there are many reasons why people feel this way, one of them is because they have never learned how to practice self-compassion. It’s time to let go of any judgment, criticism, or negative emotions that you may have towards yourself. You are not perfect, nor is anyone around you. You make mistakes, and you fall short at times. However, you can choose how you respond to those mistakes and shortcomings. It’s up to you whether you choose compassion or judgment when you make a mistake or get off track in your life. Compassion is more than just an emotional feeling; it is a reflection of the universal human condition that allows you to see yourself in others. Compassion enables you to recognize the universality of human experience and accept that you are all in this together.
Be merciful towards all who have no mercy for themselves or others. Mercy is an act of kindness that is shown when someone does something wrong or has committed an offense against another person or group of people. Mercy is often used as one of the strongest forms of forgiveness because it involves showing mercy towards someone who has done something wrong or hurtful towards another person or group of people. Being merciful to others means giving them a second chance after they have already screwed up once or twice. It means not judging someone until you walk in their shoes because you never know what they are going through or what is going on in their life at the moment. It means having patience with someone who isn’t acting like themselves because maybe they have something serious going on in their life that is causing them pain and stress that isn’t obvious from the outside looking in.
Be in a state of grace, be compassionate, be merciful; for all creatures great and small are beings of Light. Many people are having difficulty with the concept and how it applies to their lives, in particular, how to extend grace to themselves and others. Grace is so easy for you to give away but so hard for you to accept. Compassion and mercy are also considered virtues that you need to learn how to exercise in your daily life. Be aware that when you are feeling angry, resentful, or judgmental toward another person or situation, it is usually because your own needs are not being met. This is nothing to be ashamed of; everyone experiences this on occasion. The important thing is to recognize these feelings when they arise and take action to address them before they turn into resentment or bitterness.
Be willing to see past the shadows of darkness within your heart center. They represent the deepest parts of our being, and they are often the most difficult to look at. Some people avoid them altogether, while others are willing to confront them head-on. The Shadow Self does not represent evil or malicious intent; rather, it represents the parts of yourself that you don’t want to acknowledge or accept because you are uncomfortable or in pain. These parts may be rejected as “not me” because they are too different from your idealized self-image. Or these parts may be rejected because they represent something you fear in other people. The shadow self is a part of the personality that you deny, disown, or hide from others because it’s considered to be negative. But if you don’t acknowledge this side, you leave it in control of your life. You must be willing to see beyond your shadow. Take the glance of the light and take the love.
Be willing to see past the shadows of darkness in all who walk beside you. When you’re in a dark place, it’s easy to see only the shadows. It’s easy to see only what is wrong. It’s easy to become so focused on the pain that you lose sight of everything else. It’s so important for you to be able to look past the shadows of darkness in all those around you, especially when they’re close to you. You need to be able to see past their faults and failings because you often forget that just as you have your faults and failings, others do too. You often forget that just as you are flawed human beings who are not perfect in any way, shape, or form, neither is anyone else. It’s easy for you as humans living in this realm to get so caught up in yourself that you forget about everyone else, but if you want things to change around you then you must remember this: You can’t change anything if you don’t change yourself first.
Allow the Light Divine Source to shine through you this day and all your days. The Light Divine Source allows you to see all things in a beautiful light. It opens your hearts and minds to new possibilities, new ideas, and new ways of being in the world. The Light Divine Source brings compassion, forgiveness, and peace into your life. It helps you to forgive others for their mistakes because you know that they too are human beings trying to live their lives as best they can. When you feel the Light Divine Source flow through you, it feels like an energy that makes you feel good and alive. The more often you feel this feeling of flowing light, the more easily it comes to you when needed. In other words, the more you practice feeling this energy flow through you and through others, the easier it becomes for you to feel it again and again without effort or thought.
Mercy, compassion, and grace. How shall you tread upon the path before you this day? You are not alone. Take a moment and reflect on your life, how it is, and how it could be. Think of how you would like to change or improve. Now ask yourself to consider how you have already improved and changed for the better. Perhaps not as much as you would have liked, but still some progress has been made.
