Live And Let Live

My reflections today have let me learn yet another lesson. I'm constantly learning from life itself and navigating the more difficult currents in it's ebb and flow. I understand what it fully means to really embrace the concept of 'live and let live.' I've found that it's not something you can force yourself to understand but will come to you in the aftermath of life's many altering occurrences. As I develop my Root chakra, I'm comprehending more and more that with the strength that undoubtedly comes from cultivating a strong one, temperance balances out any over-bearing habits I might have. In dealing with people this is a good trait to have especially when interacting with the ones we know the best. Using this attitude allows me to accept that everyone that crosses my path doesn't have to necessarily understand my vision. Their way is unique to them. Sometimes in life knowing that means respecting the life choices and decisions those close to you make, even if it is sad or uncomfortable for you. This isn't always easy, but knowing your own purpose and living it out in an unshakable manner will give you a way of allowing them their own personal journey. In that sense, whether you find a way to co-exist with them or your paths only cross for a time, you can be happy with the knowledge that you are both on the roads that you each have chosen.
