When did the format of our questions change?
As children we would ask, “Why is the sky blue?”, among many other ‘curiosity’ questions. As adults, it is more along the lines of, “Why would they do that?”, or, “Why would God allow this to happen?”
We enter this life full of happiness and interest, eager to discover the wonderment’s it will offer. Soon though, our excitement shrinks as we experience harm, hurt, and betrayal of all kinds. This comes from parents, ‘friends’ and governing bodies. The system proves itself to be broken, and it fosters a broken reality, indeed, it creates what it has become.
Joy and embrace are replaced by bruises and disgrace.
How can the beauty of a child alter the fate of the world, instead of a corrupt and broken world altering the fate of the child? This current structure must ‘flip’, the balance is no longer there and the whole of the world is off kilter.
How can health be part of an organization which is ill in itself? It cannot. This structure is full of people intent on fixing everyone else, while ignoring their own bullshit.
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
In order for this change to occur, people must demand the reintroduction of their inner child. We carry around these pains from our youth, we’ve buried them and think ourselves strong for overcoming trials.
The truth though, is unless we embrace that vulnerable child within us and allow it to have a voice, giving it permission and freedom to finally be heard, using our adult common sense and compassion, change will be very slow in coming, if not impossible.
Our obligation to ourselves, if we honestly choose to be free, is to accept liability for the stuff we’ve crammed into the depths of our soul under lock and key, and to also be its liberator, all the while embracing that fragile, and now knowing, inner child.
Many of the people in this world are choosing to foster care, compassion, forgiveness, patience, and acceptance of self, which in turn make it easier to see the need for, and have the desire to grow it, elsewhere on the earth.
It is time to water our garden folks. There is no better nourishment to be provided but for the gift we have capacity of giving ourselves … and each other.
1 Corinthians 12:26-27
26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a member of it.
