Isn’t it interesting …
Social Media is proving to be a massive awakening tool and a massive destruction tool as well. With the mass spreading of inspirational postcards and quotes, Facebook especially is helping contribute to a raising of consciousness across the planet. At the same time though, social media also enables bullies to put their bullying efforts on steroids and many teens have suicided as a result of that.
According to the Universal Law of Balance, everything has a perceived positive and a perceived negative side. One simply cannot exist without the other. Everything is dual. Everything has its pair of opposites. And every perceived negative has an equally powerful benefit.
Here’s a great example of that…
A 10 minute video was posted to YouTube featuring 68 year old, bus monitor, Karen Klein attempting to ignore a stream of insults and threats directed towards here from students.
The video soon went viral. Very soon after that, an international crowd funding site, Indiegogo.com had raised $124,000 to pay for a vacation for the woman.
It’s a great lesson in personal growth too. When we can truly see the benefit in every negative that occurs in our lives, we dissolve the emotional charge around those negative situations. When we dissolve the energy around the situation, the situation turns around.
And here’s something weird …
It seems that every time I blog on something, a situation similar to the life lesson I’m blogging about shows up in my life virtually instantaneously. (Hey, there’s an idea … maybe I should start blogging about the world’s rich … lol).
Anyway, after reading about this woman’s story and while writing this post on the Law of Balance, a challenging situation arose that was going to reduce my productivity and put me behind about two weeks and potentially cost me a lot of money.
My initial reaction was “Why is this happening to me, again.”
Then – I just sat there and giggled and realised that it was the Universe’s way of giving me an opportunity to demonstrate the message of my own writings, in my own life. I then took some time to step back and see the situation for what it really was and saw some incredible benefits in there for me. Benefits that I’m SOO grateful for.
Today, spend some time looking at the challenging situations in your life and look at the benefits that are there for you. They’re always there. Always. And when you see them, and truly become grateful for them, the magic that they offer far outweighs the challenge.
