I've been gifted with a few opportunities over the past weeks to have my 'mirror' polished. Some have been gentle rubs. Some have felt more akin to sandpaper scraping against sensitive skin. Some of the polishing I have been grateful for.... some I'm still searching for the Blessing that eventually follows the rub.
We are Spiritual Beings having a Human experience. I know this. I teach this. And sometimes I have to remind myself of this.
When I allow my very Human ego to take part in an interaction with someone I can become irritated with the interaction. When I allow Spirit to guide me I more often quickly accept the Lesson and the Blessin' and move on.
If you find yourself in a situation that is irritating or challenging I humbly suggest you do the following: Take a deep breath, let it out slowly, then say to yourself, "If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?".
Who knows? You may come out of the situation shining brightly :-)
