“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.”
~ Emily Dickinson 💙💙💙
“Don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
While you continue looking for that which you seek, be certain you do no harm along the way. You cannot force anyone to take on the role that you desire them to. While you try to create a situation or event, if you harm anyone in the process it only serves to solidify the situation you try to break free from.
The one you seek will find you in good time, when they are ready. When they do, then you will gain what you long for.
If you continue to cause harm in other life forms and minds, you only delay the outcome … with potential that the outcome will be the opposite of what you need.
Be definite in your actions, do no harm. Otherwise your dilemma may never change for the better, only increase what you are currently experiencing.
“Is she ready?”, “No, she isn’t ready yet.” Our brothers are in a situation … they find themselves ‘stuck’ and they seek assistance.
Assistance … as in being carried out of this world … but what if she likes it here? What if she plans on coming back ~ if the planet isn’t destroyed, that is.
What if this is the true reason the planet is in so much jeopardy. What if ‘brothers’ just need to be released … do you suppose the damage will stop being done? Do you think people will be able to suddenly relax and let go of this mania?
There are deep issues no one is talking about, and those who do are ridiculed and slandered, even killed.
This has been a solo battle for quite some time, for people are in denial. Perhaps they are frightened, or simply so brainwashed they cannot see, no capacity for widened mind, open to receive, open to sharing, to caring.
It IS changing however, an uproar has begun. It is looking like the snowball effect is a current event, growing as days pass. Either we allow the ruination of the world, or we work together … to help “we” … so we can continue on, in peace.
Choice is, and always has been, ours. Power is given to others through an allowing of the people ~ the majority. Perhaps it is time for reclaiming this power, and utilizing it as we have dreamed it would be.
Perhaps it is WE who are the savior of this world … if we choose to be involved in a matter kept secret, if we choose to tune in and discover what must be done, if we decide that no one on this earth knows better than we, for we are ALL connected to this same consciousness which needs to be free.
There are those who feed their families and consider the life they take while hunting as sacred. They honor the earth and all of its elements, working to live in harmonious balance.
Many hunters though, while marveling at the beauty of the animal kingdom, will stalk and kill and hang heads on walls as trophies. Some say it is to feed the family, while harboring a great desire to end life. Some ~ treat their spouse with the same ‘respect’. Demanding so much, taking from them any sense of personal value. They create a situation where the only beneficiary is they themselves.
It truly is a fine line, this one we walk. Honoring life can be frivolously tossed aside, especially if lifes value has not been taught. Yet deep within every person is the truth of it. Crawling out of this space where anger and resentment are is difficult, but these things will control a mind and a life, manipulating all actions if not reigned in and brought under control. This is why forgiveness is so important.
Forgiveness does not even have to be verbal, it need only be a releasing of the connection to pain with whoever wronged us. Cut that tie, drop the string (or the rope) sometimes the road between us can be a well worn path if traveled enough. If the road is paved with consideration and kindness and love, keep it open, if it is paved with grief and pain and revenge, shut it down.
It will get easier with time, and it will be far easier without adding manipulative toxins to the brain. Toxins will not allow a person to work through the pain, they only suffice to keep one whirling in the pool, spinning, and spinning.
In my life it has been made clear time after time that I am not quite what someone else wants in their life. I have often berated myself, accusing myself of not being good enough. I have experienced much pain due to rejection.
In my now it has been made more clear than ever that although I may not possess the qualities others perceive might benefit their lives, I do have every quality that can benefit my own.
A life lived in the attempt to be all that others think I should be has led to much heartache, for I will never be able to live up to so many peoples differing ideas about what that looks like. Better to work towards pleasing ONE (me) than the many.
I have shut the door, for now, on folks who are not willing to keep it open for me. Instead of always trying to enter their lives and be what is pleasing to them, and being rejected, I stop trying, and it is apparent they have no intention of trying to meet half way. Too much of myself winds up in disappointment as rejection of my personality is stated and made clear, so I focus on loving me. Who can do it better?
I have lost a lot of time training to be my best friend, while trying to be that to others, and failing. As time on this earth is not foreseen or guaranteed, I will not waste any more of it. Loving others from a distance, while loving myself up close and personal, is where this life is going to be spent.
Those who feel the same about the environment and other topics I care deeply about, will be there. SO … focusing on issues that are important to me, ME being one of them, and reclaiming the wasted energy of attempted people pleasing, will allow room for those who are of the same capacities as myself.
With patience and honor for self, I provide nurturing in my home, and when that cup runeth over, it will spill goodness into the outer, for that is what I cultivate here.
I will not limit myself with a definition, just as I lay no claim to any labels.
I. AM. ALL POSSIBILITIES.
The question is … what possibility will I encounter tomorrow? What aspect of my potential will my soul call forth?
There are those who wave it off, they say we are nobody, they pay us no concern. They make the mistake of underestimating the goodness … and the strength … that dwells in us. They do not know that we are rousting out the impurities of our hearts, of our minds. They do not see us grow.
Potential is deep within each of us. Every day we choose. We choose to believe what has been said of us, we choose to honor labels placed upon our person by others … OR … we choose to redefine who we are, and what we offer the world. We choose to watch ever close for opportunity, and we walk straight into our fear and we make things happen, good things.
Shedding the past we journey into the next phase of life, a phase which is inclusive of all sentient beings. We nurture love for self, and when the well fills, it overflows into the world. It takes time, this transition, fortunately we have some.
I am excited to see how tomorrow goes, for I feel it turning … in me, and in the world. As Darpan states, “Chaos will become peace, and sorrow will become joy.”
