What part does drama play in your world, in your life? Does it sneak in just a little bit? Is it not at all apparent? You don’t let drama into your life? Or do you live for drama?
Let me tell you what I mean when I say the word drama.
Living for drama, living with drama is staying inside of the stories of perceived hurt, pain, and disrespect that you experience in life.
One of the very first steps when one begins a journey, on a spiritual path, is to stop living inside your stories. Leave them behind. Telling stories over and over and over, the calling of the friend, the support groups, over and over and over, leave it behind.
Why? Because when you repeat your stories you are bringing the energy of the pain into your existence. If we’d like to leave that pain behind, why would we ever repeat it over and over?
Now, let me be clear. I understand there are times when experience needs to be shared with a therapist or a counselor or someone who can help you to figure it out, release it and let it go. That’s not what we’re talking about here. What I’m referring to are the times that people can’t let go of the situation and so they verbalize to everyone in their circle what has happened.
Please know the difference and please know and recognize that leaving your stories behind is your choice. We can’t choose what happens to us in this world of physicality. We can always choose how to respond. That’s where our power is. Our power is in our choice of how we respond.
Take a look. How do you respond when pain enters your world? When somebody has disrespected you? When somebody has not been honest with you? Do you get so wrapped up in the stories that your life and your immediate feelings are a reflection of the event? Do you loose your center to the experience??
Or are you able to look at the situation, see it, make choices around it, and then detach and move forward using that situation as information to go to a spiritual value like compassion, understanding. And then perhaps you may choose to Namaste and send this person on their way.
Do you use these events as an opportunity to spiritually evolve?
Where are you with drama? Where are you with pain that happens to you? Do you see it, use it for your spiritual growth and send it on its way? Or do you hang on and stay inside the story and repeat it?
Take a look. Share your thoughts here. I’d love to hear what you think about drama and how you handle it. Have a blessed day.
