There is a time to hold the council of silence
There is a time to speak Truth.
There is a time when ancient seeds, long dormant,
Are once more planted and fully bloom.
When the future of humanity is being dreamed, created,
Death begets new Life.
Humanity’s future will be different from its past.
~ Gaia Codex, Sarah Drew
This is Easter weekend. It is a grand opportunity to practice what it is we would like to see in the world. Rather than react to what people may say, or do, we have the option to hold empathy in our hearts for that person, or people, we perceive are doing wrong.
In the midst of pain it is quite difficult to release the need to be defensive, to attack and protect our self. Mind you, I speak only of the non physical here. Should our very lives be in peril, of course I do not recommend just standing there and taking it.
Before it comes to blows though, there is a point where a situation can be deflated, or escalated. Often the choice is ours, and with practice, we can become masters at deescalation.
In today’s world we see military’s who are experts at escalation, they always come to blows with whoever disagrees with their agenda. The entire planet seems to be on the brink of mass destruction … it is laughable really, how these ‘powers that be’ pretend to hold authority on peace.
Each individual, YOU, have the power to create that which you wish to see in the world. Through your actions and responses to those around you, a major shift can take place in the minds and hearts of others. Everything we say and do affects those around us, everything.
If this body was crafted
from the same intelligence
that created the miracle of the living universe,
rainbows, river banks, whale song and forest floors,
why on earth would I not listen,
trust and follow its voice
as it speaks through me?
Surely it would only guide me in
the fullest expression of myself?
