Several months ago I wrote about how hard it is to see yourself in other people, and in spite of my daily prayers and meditations, it sometimes remains a challenge for me today. Yet, after a lot of praying and meditating on that subject it's clear to me again "The Other is truly You" and me. The "Other" being, people that are showing up in your world. These people, good, bad or indifferent, are qualities or aspects of yourself, so the best thing you can do for yourself is to see the best in every person you encounter and the best in all of life events and circumstances; Rev. Johnnie Coleman would say "call it all good." See the resilience, confidence and consistency as yourself; see the influence, the knowledge and Power as yourself. See the wealth and the continued increase of wealth as yourself, see the strength of community as yourself; why? because it wouldn't be visible to you if it wasn't an aspect of yourself. Pay attention and see, because what you're seeing is your best and highest self, but you must declare it as so. Don't accept someone else's version of who you are because that's not who you are, it's who they are, because everybody that exists can only see themselves; The Other is You! Do you see a scared vulnerable, lonely person that can't keep healthy relationships? Or do you see someone taking the time to be by themselves, to focus building a stronger relationship with their Creator? How you see life is a reflection of You. Now repeat the following affirmation with the Belief and Faith the size of a Mustard Seed and be great today!
Thank you Holy Spirit for the revelation of oneself, thanks for showing me that Everything I see, and experience is truly a reflection of my inner best and highest qualities, all the Power I see, has its roots in me.
