Choose Your Filter: Journey of Courage 2017 – Day 03

The point is: it takes courage to change, to figure out a new way of being, to become something different than what you are used to, what you are comfortable with. But the good news is…it’s becoming less painful to change than to remain in old thought-patterns that no longer serve Love and the upliftment of humanity.

Guiding Thought

Love is unconditional. I choose to be unconditionally devoted to the love which is unconditionally devoted to me. I embrace life in love as my True nature. Connected with All in Love, I stand boldly in my heart-center, unwavering in my dedication to Unity of Life in Love.

Reflection

I know someone who used to hold-in all emotions, causing mental and physical health problems. After years of therapy, this person is finally able to “express themself”. In fact, now this person says whatever comes to mind, and is known in several circles as someone with “no filters”.

Having no filters, in and of itself, is neither good nor bad…but in this particular case…it results in this person being known for doing and saying things that are insulting, cruel, thoughtless, ignorant, and insensitive. People around just shrug and say, “no filters…”, as though that explains and excuses the behavior.

Having no filters, however, does not equal insensitive behavior; I know many people who say what’s on their mind without being cruel or insulting.

In fact, “no filters” is inaccurate terminology. What comes out simply shows what the filter actually is, what’s really going on in the mind, in the way the thoughts are processed internally, and then come out as words. This person  has filters; they are just filters that allow mean and insensitive things to come through.

Change the filter, change what comes through.

Expression is important, but maybe what is more important is what filter is being used internally –maybe this person’s initial health problems weren’t caused by holding things in, but rather by the types of things being held in (and now we know what this person was holding in!).

People are becoming more and more impatient with cruelty and suffering, on every level, from any person (even oneself!). More and more, people are thinking, “there’s got to be a better way”.

Collectively, we are finding that better way.

Refuse to tolerate your filters that allow through any cruel, insensitive, thoughtless, ignorant thoughts or behaviors–they are affecting you inwardly, and they are being expressed outwardly, whether you realize it or not.

Change your filter.

Embrace life in love as your True nature. Connect with All in Love. Stand boldly in your heart-center, unwavering in your dedication to Unity of Life in Love.

Don’t just look, find the better way. Be the better way. Be strong in Love.
