The Beam of a Lighthouse…
Posted by carolom on June 22, 2010
In our ART of Change group we colour posters that give visual form, shape and colour to the topic we are discussing. This week it was Moving on From the Past and Living Freely in the Present.
“The Beam of A Lighthouse is not Affected by the Howling Wind and Rain” is a quote I came across many years ago.
I made this poster after a member of an earlier group told us:
“I was doing really well giving up smoking, didn’t have a single puff for a week..but then family turned up on my door and I was back chain smoking again.They always do this t me”….
It is easy to blame others for our inner stress and turmoil especially when we are immersed in a family web of destructive behaviour and toxic patterns but blaming him/ her/ them /the organistation etc etc whilst pointing the finger outwardly & focusing on where they are at fault and flawed – and how they are responsible for ‘making me feel bad /uptight etc – takes up time and energy that could be spent cultivating our Inner Lighthouse and learning how to step out of the predictable Pattern and into a new, positive inner world…of our own making…
