are you traveling north or south?
It all boils down to war OR peace two simple concepts that play out over and over again in our world
But here’s the thing …. There can only be one or the other There is no such thing as war AND peace
And that’s the way it is in our hearts
A feeling of war means we feel separate from the person we are with
|Do you want to take from that person?||Do you want to hurt that person?||Do you want to see that person suffer?|
In the book, Quest of a Teenage Mystic, this feeling of being separate from the other person is called traveling north (into a cold and barren blizzard)
A feeling of peace means we feel connected to the person we are with
You want to give to that person
You want to make them feel good and cared for
In the book, Quest of a Teenage Mystic, this feeling of being connected with the other person is called traveling south (into the warmth and light of the sun)
What does traveling north and south look like in everyday life?
You’re having an argument and you want to figure out exactly what the other person is trying to say to you
Remember I said you can only have war OR peace in your life?
It’s like you’re standing on one mountain or another
The sun is shining on the mountain of peace so action taken from this mountain results in warmth and love
If your action is based on a feeling of oneness – of being connected to a person,
that will be the experience that comes back to you
And let me know how it went 🙂
