I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
Leonardo da Vinci
I hear over and over about hard everything is, my question is really, was there a time when ‘it’ wasn’t hard? I myself do not farm for my food nor do I have to get up at the crack of dawn to do chores to make sure my family is fed. I do not have to sell myself or anything to make sure needs are met. I do not have to send a family member to war or go to the funeral of one who did and did not return. I am not plagued with a disease I cannot fight and I am not mentally challenged and cannot think clearly. All of that sounds hard, Yet, I am a blessed human with a ridiculously hard life. Hard because I make it hard. Hard because I make it my responsibility to do the job that ‘others’ will not. That makes it my choice and in that statement is my strength. Like Leonardo said I gathered my strength from the distress my life gave me.
The real truth is that everybody’s life is hard and everything is relative. What I can take would put most people in a mental institution. What others can take makes me want to jump off a ledge. Life is a series of experiences and because of the natural laws if we do not change the energy of our circumstances then we repeat endlessly the lessons that we ourselves are trying to learn. Another truth being that letting go and letting God is the best answer and for humans the hardest easiest answer there is. Someone once said that time changes everything, so if you have a problem wait let some time pass, problem still there, wait some more, something always happens, get that!!!! Something always happens in time to change circumstances, a woman is never pregnant forever, children do get older, parents get smarter, a dog can learn new tricks, people come people go, people fall in and out of love. Change is the only constant. Right next to the constant you that is experiencing ‘everything’.
We as humans need to look closer at history as people have always spouted the end of the world is coming since the day the world was born. The world is not ending the new world is being birthed. If we want to understand the change we are currently going through we need to close our mouths and listen. Not to someone’s words, platitudes, or experiences, but the still small voice within the self. There is no experience that you have not had, there is no truth left unveiled when you take the time to dig for truth. Most of the hardships you hear about are still the same ole problems, he said, she said, he did, she did, I didn’t want any of it. That world is done! We are being held responsible for our actions and reactions and what happens next is up to us. It is a time for action not reaction. Like it has been said thousands of times, be the change you are looking for in the world.
Look a person in the eyes when they talk to you and you will learn everything there is to know. If a human can not look you in the eye when they talk or you talk, what are you doing in front of that person? Humans are still very simple creatures which in and of itself makes us very dangerous creatures indeed. Our fears drive us into automatic responses and an unthinking human is no fun at all. So it is time for those of us willing to think and process to stand up and show ‘them’ how it is done. There really is nothing to be afraid of, if you believe in nothing then there is nothing to be afraid of. If you have a belief system then there is nothing to be afraid of. I can go on and on. Fear is the biggest trap the human faces. Fear of the world, fear of the people of the world, fear of the differences in the world, fear of the end of the world, fear of how to manipulate the world, fear of being used up by the world, fear of the self, fear, fear, fear, another 4 letter word.
Try not to forget the world, this one here, is an illusion, an awesome one, I love pie, chocolate and dark beer,but an illusion none the less. We are on the planet to learn, play, love, and create an awesome life for ourselves, speaking to the choir I am, it is all within our control when we finally let go of the limited mind-set the human belief system has given us. The reality is the world picture is much bigger than the one most humans are currently buying, way to bad for you people. When you learn just how much energy there is available to you and all people, for health healing and happiness then you will be in the driver seat of the new car you will be driving on the road to the your next incarnation, awesome you!!! That could be tomorrow.
I so hope you out there can hear me. I look out onto the world and people are reacting to a story of their lives that is simply a lie. It is either a lie they have been fed by parents or their limited belief system, or simply a lie that have decided to believe for themselves. How sad!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it happened to me, I did that too. Someone tried to convince me I was not as awesome as I thought I was, someone tried to knock me down a level or two, yeah whatever. I stood back up and frankly told a few of them they could kiss my ever-loving ass, another story, anyway…
Today I proclaim and declare that you are free, you are strong and beautiful, you are awesome and magnificent, you are no different from me. Feel my strength and lets all be strong.
