Malice drinks one half of its own poison.
~ Lucius Seneca
Has it not been aptly said that what you give is what you get? If you choose to be wakeful of the loving blissful consciousness that you in essence are… then you express and experience loving blissful consciousness. What could be more simple?
The same is true of such expressions as malice. If you choose negativity… you first fill yourself with it and fully experience it. Then you direct it toward others. It’s like picking up a burning coal with the intention of throwing it at someone else. You however are the one who gets burned. Again… what could be more simple?
This week… let us cultivate wakefulness of our choices… in the truthful understanding that whatever we choose… we first experience and then express. Let us endeavor to maintain a truthful focus on being blissful loving consciousness… and enjoying the resultant experience of our choice. Again… the truth is ever so simple.
