Contemplation – Day17

The whole universe is contained within a single human being — you. Everything that you see around, including the things that you might not be fond of and even the people you despise or abhor, is present within you in varying degrees. Therefore, do not look for Sheitan [“Devil” in Arabic] outside yourself, either. The devil is not an extraordinary force that attacks from without. It is an ordinary voice within, if you set to know yourself fully, facing with honesty and hardness.

This is my day. I am courageous and trust my inner power.

This rule is hard for me to ‘digest’. I travel a lot. I meet a lot of people and I find myself in my different situations. Life truly allows me to see myself in many different light so I can truly see myself as I am, in my own unique totality. 

So, there are places, people and circumstances that reflect the part of me that is light, funny and kind. Other places allow me to see where I am hurting and feel unlovable. I am at a place like that right now. The unresolved and unattended traumas of this part of the world helps me see my own childhood wounds.

The criticism and disapproval that I am surrounded with is only a reminded to surround myself with the Divine Love.
