There on my tongue, even before I swallow is an orange grove with sunshine, a soft breeze and a faint hint of sweet fragrance in the air. The taste stirs me to dive deeper into the cool liquid. I become mindful of the tree roots in the rich soil that absorbs the rain from the clouds in the sky. There are people and machines working the orange grove, pickers, packers, truck drivers, retailers and buyers like me. One is connected to another until everything is within the juice.
Mindful observation can lead to mind blowing expansions. I’m referring to your consciousness expanding to make major constructive impacts in your reality! Consider these 6:
Though you are in this world and deeply connected to everyone and everything you are also part of something greater and expansive as the universe. The present moment becomes an opportunity to create a depth of happiness and harmony that expands and grows into future possibilities.
When you mindfully observe and go “inside a person’s skin” and “walk in their shoes” then you get insights to the reasons they are the way they are. Some reasons are easier to spot than others, such as physical illnesses and weaknesses. Yet, you may get insight into their conditioning and type of experiences that hold them in subconscious habits. And, even causes for more subtle personality traits, such as being very sensitive, easy to snap or being generally irritable. And, in that understanding you may find you are able to release any resentment and blame you may have felt towards them.
In mindful observation of another you see their suffering and their beauty. And compassion naturally arises. You may begin to see yourself within them! I experience this often because we are all so much alike and connected. Recognition stirs a longing and hope for them to suffer less. To enjoy life instead. For them and ourselves. And you begin to see ways to brighten their day. It may mean a genuine smile or some other compassionate act. In mindful observation you can feel compassionate energy spring from your heart, touch them and eventually return to you increased even though you expected nothing in return. It’s the Laws of Attraction and Compensation being factors in your reality.
You come to understand that your process of easing suffering in others also eases suffering within ourselves. And the other way around, with the help of the Great Principle. You recognize your interconnection with everyone and everything expanding your consciousness and the radiance of your heart. This naturally leads to gratitude and ways to express it.
Consider Transmitting Universal Life Energy and Love to the World meditation to help. It is also a bridge to your soul.
You come to realize you are the master of your life. That there is no comprise with Truth. And no matter how tempting negative urges may be, like revenge and impatience, you are able to detach from urges. You observe then release because you develop foresight of the consequences working through the Law of Cause and Effect.
Sometimes I still choose a revengeful verbal attack. I know it immediately because of what it feels like. I recognize the mistake and return to observe the ego in a detached state, grateful for the help of my Higher Self. Our Higher Self, the mindful observer, helps us return to sanity and Love because it recognizes Truth and tells us through intuition, gut feelings, instinct and even reason.
Mindful observation opens you to awareness of your True Self and soul. To the strength it provides, expanding your creative power to act constructively making positive impacts in your own life, in others lives and indeed the world.
In the hope you find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB
