What is Yours and What is NOT?
The Iroquois Nation believe profoundly in the inter-connectedness of everything. Therein could be found a universal truth for being in any situation. The Great Peacemaker who came among the original 5 tribes taught that the only way to live in peaceful relationships was to live in Good Mind. In the Iroquois Nation, experiencing and creating from specific qualities is called "being in Good Mind".
Key is to choose the qualities, the "ground" upon which you stand and build. That is what you did in our last lesson. You determine the qualities, values that will underpin the culture that is "your space" and therefore, "your Relationship Landscape."
This stand necessitates that YOU are responsible for monitoring your own energy space.YOU are the one who commits to remain congruent to Your Good Mind. Those qualities might be Generous, Caring, Calm, Valuing of all in the Web of Life, Inclusion, etc.
Any relationship, especially a long-term relationship, will trigger old patterns, wounds, and judgments. When you are "triggered", you will be "out of Good Mind." It is easy to blame the 'other' for your pain. If only s/he were more stable, kind, aware, then I would be feeling fine. You know that story?
In Good Mind, it is YOUR responsibility to notice when you are not in Good Mind, when you are triggered. Then, it is YOUR responsibility to withdraw from the situation and use your tools and support to return to Good Mind.
The Law of Manifestation says that if a disruptive energy appears in your life, it is because you carry a seed for that disruption in your energy fields, conscious or unconscious. In other words, if it is in your field of awareness, the seed is in field and is YOURS to transform.
Here is how the Skaroreth Katenuaka Nation is living within Good Mind for their people.
Do you see any similarities between the Skaroreth Katenuada Nation and the leadership of the U.S.A.?
The Journey Continues. What do you choose to build from? What processees and supports will you use when you find yourself triggered and out of "Good Mind"?
