Just don’t get caught up in petty little things.
Take the high road.
It is natural to feel negative things from time to time, but just don’t give in to them.
Do not let them take you over.
Act from a wiser place.
Then people will respect you.
Then you will inspire them to behave well toward you.
Then you will gain much.
You will be supported not opposed.
That makes life easy.
Acting poorly evokes opposition.
Then life becomes a battle.
Then life is hard.
Take the high road.
At first glance, it may seem hard to not act from your petty impulses.
But it is in fact the easy road.
Nature supports when you live in harmony with the high road.
That is the simple formula to greatness.
It is easy to be great.
There seems to be dignity associated with the high road. Thank you for the reminder.
What a wonderful formula to make life easier. Taking the high road is a great win for yourself and for everyone around you.
Thank you for the constant inspiration and reminders to come from our greatness. It’s so supportive!
Thank you. That is s great gift of knowledge.
Merry Christmas to all!
Christmas is a great time to think about taking the high road. So much conditioning comes up during the holidays and people are off their diets and their schedule, being potentially out of balance. It’s nice to remember that the high road is the easy road. I like easy.
I really like this perspective and how simply you expressed it. Most everyone I know wants life to be easier. This blog is a great reminder and guide. Thank you.
I think getting caught up in negativity or petty little things can become habitual if gone under the radar for too long. Much harder to get out of it then.
Thanks for the reminder.
This brought me to “basic respect” that you have spoken of. I find of late I don’t even want to speak anymore. It hurts me to see people hurting each other, especially friends that I love. It hurts me to feel I hurt another. I find myself withdrawing…silent.
I read somewhere that a good friend can separate the wheat from the chaff. Sometimes when I get caught up in something petty I talk to a friend I trust who is not involved in the situation. I know I can trust that person to separate the wheat from the chaff. In other words, they can hear my ridiculous pettiness so I can vent it or process it and move on, but they won’t take it too seriously or remember it the next day or hold me to it.
Beautiful blog. Thank you.
