‎How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

Wayne Dyer

A friend of mine spoke these words recently…

“And then there are those that use people as stepping stones…spending their lives looking for perfection and self-fulfillment/happiness but really never finding it, not realizing that true perfection exists within their own hearts. They are blind to true happiness and peace…unfortunately living their lives without ever allowing themselves to enjoy happiness…most likely dying alone even if surrounded by a room full of people. That is why there are so many unhappy people around us, people looking for happiness/self-full-fillers from others and the unfortunate ones that have been their victims drawing on their life force.”

Upon reading those words from my friend, I found my Self thinking about being one of those stepping stones.  One course of action would be to remain the stone and allow my Self as that stone to be pushed farther down into the earth…making it even easier for others to walk upon my well worn surface.  Another course of action, and the one I Choose, is to not be the stone anymore.  A stone is lifeless, unable to move itself from other than where it is.  I choose to realize the life I have, eliminate fear, rise up from the earth, cleanse the dirt from my surface and continue moving along a path…leaving the depression made by the stone I was…behind Me.  Thus, my quiet and peaceful reaction…

…taking myself “Down To The Water” to wash my Self clean…water is the cleansing element…
