One of the greatest gifts God can bestow upon us is the gift of being able to exercise non-reaction. This is one of the most challenging gifts to master. To be able to see something you dislike and not react. To be able to hear something you dislike and not react. To be able to read something you dislike and not react. To be able to not react when someone does something you do not like. I consider all of the above tests given to me to overcome my lower self. The part of me that is less than the God within me; the Spirit that I AM. In these times, I stop and breath deeply so as to invite the Holy Spirit into my being to cleanse the negativity that tries to take hold of and disturb my core. I call out Jesus’ name and invite him into my being to wash me clean. I call upon Mother Mary to flood me with her Unconditional Love. And then I relax and realize that I AM More than the emotion of negativity. I AM Pure Love and love is what I choose to emanate.
