Daily Meditation — 3/18/2022

You’re upset.
Someone made a joke about a specific type of person, trait, or other ideology or issue.

You know someone that fits this!

A wave of anger gives way to fury and indignation.

“We’re an advanced society! We don’t act this way,” you rage, calling for their removal, firing, and to become a pariah.

When someone cannot control their emotions, they will attempt to control the behaviors of others.

You are powerless over others.
You are powerless over their thoughts and opinions.
You are powerless over their behaviors.

You can only control your behaviors.
You can only control your emotions.
You can only control your perceptions of the world…

When you realize nothing means anything until you make it into something, only then will you understand you are immune to words and actions. Invincible.

Control your own perceptions and know peace.
