When You Know Better

… you have a responsibility to BE BETTER.

It’s just the way it works.

When dealing with those who don’t know better, it’s your job to lead by example and show them a better way. 

It doesn’t matter who is right or wrong. Being on a path of personal growth means accepting responsibility for your actions and never holding others accountable for your own shortcomings, especially those who don’t know better.

Don’t waste your time fighting with others who don’t know better. Don’t hold them to the same standard you hold yourself, not everyone is capable of it.

Fighting with someone who doesn’t have the tools to be better doesn’t bring them there. It just brings you down. If they can’t get there on their own, guide them by your example. When you know better, your behavior can be the catalyst for great change.

Bite the bullet, be the bigger person. Two wrongs never make a right so don’t stoop to their level. If they don’t know better, it’s your job to be better. Learn to lead by example or get out of their way.

If you can’t solve it

… walk away from it.

At least for little while.

Then the answer becomes clear.

Pushing for answers doesn’t bring them quicker, it just highlights the questions.

You get what you focus on and if you’re obsessively focusing on the uncertainty, it creates more uncertainty. Clarity can only be found in a clear space and a clear space can only be found when all inquiries cease.

The best way to find clarity and to make decisions is to align with yourself get out of your head and into your heart. Stop mentally projecting outside of yourself for answers and ask yourself how you feel in every experience.

Life speaks to you through your experiences. Don’t focus on finding the answers. Live your life. It has every answer you will ever need. 

Overthinking creates mental clutter. Living your life and feeling your way through your life brings solutions. With every experience you evolve and you intuitively learn where you need to be. Answers can never be artificially found outside of you, they have to be found inside you. If you can’t solve it, walk away from it and the answers will become clear.

… they can be inherently unhappy.

And that can make them do bad things.

But at the core, people are naturally good. It’s just that unhappiness can block the flow of joy and stifle our flow of light.

Where intention goes, energy flows. If there’s no intention for joy, there can be no flow of light and if there is no flow of light, one remains in darkness. And if one is in darkness, it’s impossible to share light and good with others.

Don’t judge others. They may be unhappy and caught up in their own darkness. In that darkness, they’ll never see the light. People aren’t inherently bad, they can just be inherently unhappy and thus be enticed to do bad things.

Good people do bad things all the time; it’s not that they’re bad, it’s just that they’ve lost their natural connection to all that is good.

… it only matters what you do with it.

How you react is what determines your next experience. 

A situation is just that — a situation. It has absolutely no bearing over your life unless you give it. Once you react to a situation, you make it real for you. Once you react, you become part of the game — you’re in it and now it has to be played out.

It doesn’t matter how bad the situation is, if you don’t engage it, it can never affect you. It literally has no control over you unless you allow it in.

Your power is in your reaction. How you react will determine what happens next. Any good game needs two players. Your move will always determine how things shake out for you. In life, it’s never what happens to you, it’s what you do with it that makes all the difference in the world. What will your next move be?

… just get on with your life.

It’s as simple as that.

Not everything works out the way we want it to, but things always work out the way they are meant to.

If something doesn’t work out for you, it’s because something better is waiting in the wings and if you throw your energy into lamenting what you didn’t get, you’ll miss the opportunity to step into what you are meant to get.  

Life is constantly moving and so should you. Getting stuck looking back at what didn’t work will never move you forward into your future. Don’t get caught up lamenting what you didn’t get. It doesn’t matter why you didn’t get it. Just get on with your life. Your life is always ahead of you, never behind you and it is always waiting for you to step bravely into it.

Simple wisdom — if it didn’t work out, it wasn’t right for you. And if you learn to stop chasing all the wrong things, you can give the right things a chance to catch up with you.

… it gets you lost in the crowd.

We’re all here for a unique reason and that reason is to be who we are, not fit in to anyone elses’ mold.

You don’t need to be part of a group in order to be seen. When you’re in the group, you blend in and get lost. But when you can stand just outside the group, your colors shine brightly.

It is true, that being part of a group can be a way of identifying ourselves. So, go ahead, pick the group that mirrors you best and then stand just outside it. Stand far enough away from it that you can be part of it but not of it.

Take space and honor yourself. In time, the group will recognize your importance because they will be able to see you just out on the edge where you are easily identified.

Do you want your light to shine? Don’t put it out by trying to fit into the crowd. Be yourself. Your light will always light your way and it will naturally draw others to it.

… who are you vibing with?

Everything is energy. Like attracts like. Nothing and no one ever shows up outside of us that doesn’t match where we are within ourselves.

The energy you are putting out into the world is constantly attracting people and situations who match that vibration. So if you’re feeling happy and positive, you’ll notice that the world outside you seems hopeful and exciting and if you’re feeling sad and negative, the world outside you tends to feel a bit more challenging and bleak.

You are creating that. It’s NOT happening TO YOU. 

You’re never a victim of your life. You’re always in control of it. Your experiences are just a reflection of your inner state of being. Do you want your life to look better? Start cultivating better feeling thoughts about it. You can’t get to a better life by focusing on what’s wrong with this one. But we do it everyday. We complain and whine about the injustices around us and wonder why they only get worse.

Your vibe attracts your tribe. It attracts the people and situations that make up your life. If you’re unhappy with your life, your life will never make you happy. Find a reason to be happy with your life, and it’ll give you every reason to be happy.
