You Are My Other Self

YouAreMyOtherSelf

“You are my other self” ~ย traditionalย Toltec greeting

๐Ÿ’•

What if

Before each encounter

I paused?

Allowing Toltec wisdom to wash away

Insecurity

Negative energy

Fears of being rebuffed or of overwhelming?

Might everyday interactions become valued affairs

Rather than ordeals to endure?

What if

I envisioned hearts sharing the same tender beat?

Might compassion and patience take precedence when going about my daily tasks

Unveiling another’s brightness by honoring them with my best?

๐Ÿ’•

Dear Universe,

When self-absorption engulfs

And I fail to acknowledge those around me

Please jar my senses

Guiding me back to what matters most

Initiating connectivity

Generating goodness

Be it a smile, helping hand, or chipper word

Never alienating

Bridging spirits

Thereby enriching my own

Imparting sunshine

Ever cognizant:

You are my other self

๐Ÿ’•

Dedicated to my treasured readers.

Thanks for your vitalizing support — my heart is full because of YOU! ๐Ÿ˜˜
