Forgive and Forget Being Right

We are transcending our need to be right. As we continue our evolution, the need to be right seems about as necessary as the need for a giant billboard advertisement in the middle of the jungle. It’s not that necessary. Being right, although it may feel like a thai massage on the ego, reinforces duality. You are claiming your separateness with pride and rigidity. You are stating YOU are WRONG and I am RIGHT. Me= this, You= that and we are different. My separateness is better and yours, is of lesser quality and the universe desires you less because of it. So there. Stick tongue out, thumbs in ears and big wavy jazzy-moose hands out… neener neener. That’s what being right feels like.

But I KNOW I was right. Yeah, sure you do. You know that your intentions were right or that you really did study that thing in college and totally know what you’re talking about, but what’s being focused on is the ego. It is self-serving.

Moving forward beyond the need to be right is part of our ascension. Moments of friction or disharmony are obstacles we create to teach us this lesson.

The need to be right is grounded is force, not true power. Force is always met with opposition and duality. It removes us from source and is not supportive of life. As our vibrational frequency rises and we transcend the need to be right, power is restored and more universal life energy returns to us. We no longer need to be right, we accept what is for what is and our need to self-serve is replaced with our natural tendency to serve others.

You do not need to agree with whatever is given to you, but you can be accepting and choose to only offer love. When we act on the need to be right, we place limitations on love and in turn limitations on ourselves. You will find when you relieve yourself of the burden to be right, you will discover more freedom. The more you practice this, the lighter you will become. The lighter we become, the further along our evolutionary path we wander and inevitably influence and reinforce this action in others.

Try it out. I learned a powerful lesson in acceptance and forgiveness this weekend. After reflecting on the incident I realized that even though I firmly felt I was right… I was placing limitations on myself by agreeing with my ego that I NEEDED to be right. It really didn’t matter. What mattered was the relationship and the person I was in conflict with. I realized this incident occurred because I had not ingrained this lesson into my subconscious. It takes time. The more we make conscious choices to act for the greatest good instead of personal fulfillment, the patterns in our energy field are reinforced so that this becomes our “default” behavior.

Time is speeding up. Our karmic cycles are moving faster and faster and whatever we are sending out is returning to us in rapid pace. When you find yourself in conflict or disharmony, think back a few days. You may be thinking you don’t deserve what is happening, but ask yourself if there was a time in which you acted in self-service or without integrity. Perhaps there is a lesson in the conflict. We are creators of our own reality and all that we experience outside of ourselves in in direct relation to our intentions and feelings within. Forgiving another person or situation will begin the path of forgiving ourselves, embracing qualities within ourselves that we have rejected and bringing us closer to source.

I hope the next time you find yourself in a situation where the need to be right is tugging on your braids and you recall this post. Take a pause and choose love instead. Value the relationship over the argument and let it go.

    Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’ doesn’t make any sense.
