Are you your own Lighthouse Keeper?

Last night I read this article that prompted alot of thought in me. Too bad it was at 4am lol. It got me to think, on your journey do you see yourself as flawed and needing to heal the wounded parts as best you can, or do you see yourself as whole but cant quite see through your misperception?

 

A lighthouse image came to mind. Where the light is focused on one area at a time, but while focused on that one area, the other areas are in darkness.

 

It doesn’t mean they aren’t there because you can’t see them, does it?

 

So what if we are whole, but we just can’t see all of us because our focus isn’t on all of us.

 

So all the characteristics that you wish you were, but can’t see, you are those characateristics, you just haven’t shone your light and focus on those parts yet.

 

I don’t believe we can see characteristics, good and bad, in others, if they aren’t a part of ourselves. After all, life is all projection. What we see out there is what is in us.

 

So are you your own Lighthouse Keeper? Where are you shining your light? On the parts you know you have and you keep wishing they weren’t there?

 

How about moving that light around a bit and shining it on the other areas you haven’t acknowledged are there yet?
