Shine bright like a diamond

Shine bright like a diamond

I have realised lately that to maintain our energy and purpose in life we need to be aware of who we are speaking to. If someone attacks us all of a sudden, addressing our perceived weaknesses and vulnerabilities, it is good to ask ourselves: “How big is the piece of wood in the other’s eye when they are pointing out the piece of wood in our own?” We see things more clearly, for example, when we pick up on any hypocrisy and we can let go of any self-criticism. We can keep our lamps burning brightly and embrace the positive energy of the world.

    Thanks again for commenting! Yes, pausing to ask ourselves this question can be really helpful. It prevents us from reacting and enables us to respond out of a sense of groundedness. Blessings, Gavin
