How quickly do we fall from grace?
What does it take for us to push another from the seat of grace?
There are times in life I have fallen from grace, either in my own opinion or in the opinion of someone else.
There are times in life I have pushed someone from the seat or cradle of grace.
The why to me is no longer important. The why is because, because it happened, because it was a proscribed or learned mind-set, because, because, because.
There are triggers that go off before we attempt to let someone fall from grace or to push them from that natural state. There may be an addictive surge of heightened emotion, a marshalling of the ego, a quick pain in the stomach, a headache, something that is other than pleasure and truly a natural state of being from the heart.
If you know your own triggers, when you are about to set the trap, create the lair to draw another in, to bring them down…chances are you can stop in the very moment and cause a non-occurrence. You can choose how to treat another human being. Conversely, you can choose whether you allow yourself or another to cause the illusion of your fall from grace. When you begin to hear the self-critical voice, when your body and its energy begin to delete, almost slouch, when there is simply too much noise in your head…recognize that which is not natural is occcurring.
The quickest way to return to the natural state of love is to breath. When we are in the natural state of love, we do not allow anyone’s fall from grace, including ourself, it is not even a recognizable concept or desired action.
Even if it is only for a moment. Take a breath in through your nose, feel your stomach move and then slowly, slowly exhale, focusing on your stomach breathing out again. This moment creates a barrier while at the same time allowing a flow of loving energy to return within and around you.
