It’s the only question we need to ask. As an awakened observer of what is occurring, I find myself asking that question a lot, Why am I thinking that? Why do I want to do this? Why are they acting like that?
All too often I hear the Universe respond with “You know”, or “Does it serve your purpose?” and the big one, “It’s none of your business”. That’s the hardest one to take but it’s the most important. What others (especially those close to you) do is their own journey. Whatever relationship you may have with them, it is their own choices to make and your choice is simply to stay quietly or leave. AAH! Peace at last.
