What my reaction to a joke tells me about my vibration.
Seth Rogan made a Covid joke recently which I found funny.
Some folks thought it was too soon.
Since I am not a personal friend of Seth Rogan, I am removed from any real reaction to what he does. Which poses the question.
What if it was a good friend that made a Covid joke?
This situation knocked on my door recently. A friend of mine made a joke about covid that honestly made me pause.
My reaction (in my head) was that my friend was lacking a bit of social awareness.
Immediately, the next thought went to, why am I being so judgmental?
I am a student of the law of attraction. I believe that the observance of my reality is a direct reflection of my vibration.
I am also extremely passionate about seeing every situation from different perspectives.
The fact that I had such a negative reaction to a simple joke made me ask my favorite question to myself:
“Is this true?”
When I ask myself this question it opens my mind up to tune into exactly what I am feeling. It sends me on a course of understanding, not judgment.
‘You can never find the answer in the same energy as the problem.’ — Abraham Hicks
The first question came to mind:
· Am I trying to control my friend’s behavior?
My friends are the kind people in the world. So, the real asshole here is me.
I am taking a joking way too seriously. This means I am in a serious mindset
The next statement that came to mind is a quote from Abraham Hicks.
‘There is nothing serious going on here.’
Things are changing for me quickly. I am enjoying the unfolding yet, like most of us, I harbor some impaitence.
This situation sang the phrase ‘trust the process’, extrememly loudly.
Subconsciously I have been associating what is happening now to an event in the past.
All these conclusions happened in real-time.
I paused by taking some deep breaths and didn’t immediately respond in a negative tone to my friend whom was just making a joke.
I am grateful that I have the emotional intelligence to realize that all of my reactions are in my control.
The only person’s behavior I should be trying to control is my own.
And that’s what I did.
This situation also reminded me of my intent into all the relationships take part in, which is (with gratitude) an honor to be a witness to another’s life.
Full circle I was grateful for that joke.
Even made a random pandemic joke a bit later in the day.
I had been unaware that I have been paddling around in the lake of stress.
It felt good to lighten up.
It is my inner world that controls my reality.
I was pleased I was aware of the lesson.
The Universe has my back.
And that guidance comes in the most surprising ways.
I am grateful that I am open to receive it.
Thank you for letting me share.
Be kind. Be well. Smile.
