I lay my head on his shoulder after I give him a visual on how people treat each other, and I sob. I cry out from deep within my heart an all encompassing sorrow, for I see, and tell of, the great disconnect between people in the world. One after the other ‘scams’ to gain while knowing full well it depletes someone else. This life is not about simply living, but how great we live. Doing well while others suffer is not greatness, it is the most heartbreaking cause of grief … watching people destroy one another, seeing the lack of care.
There are those who harm the ones calling forth the light. Holistic practitioners, judges, whistle blowers, all who will not stand for law breaking and who cannot be bought off. Women (and men) who refuse to bend to the will of a tyrant, children who refuse to allow their inner light be stripped from them, no matter the brutality bestowed upon their being, are harmed, even killed, daily.
Yes, the ones in the shadows believe that by stepping up their cruelty they will be able to get those living in love, with great integrity inside them, to shrink.
“The city of Dickinson, Texas, is requiring applicants for Hurricane Harvey rebuilding funds to certify in writing that they will not take part in a boycott of Israel. The American Civil Liberties Union criticized the city’s condition as a violation of free speech rights.”
Saying good-bye is never easy. Even when we leave behind situations that are painful, it still requires an adjustment, for pain, too, is something which can be missed once gone.
Every relationship, every situation, is for a reason. It may be that some knowledge of current, must be brought forth into future endeavors. Usually, if paid heed and utilized correctly, this new knowledge can be beneficial to all involved.
Grow. Never stop adding to the learning adventure. Stretch your comfort zone, move beyond what you may see as your capacity. There is always room for something greater. You have so much to offer, and while others offer their own experiences for lessons, you can do the same for them.
Your life is valuable, your knowledge is perfect and when used for good can shift the world view and path toward the outcome of peace and compassion. The seeming negatives, which undoubtedly have been yours, are teaching tools. For others, and also for self. Moving beyond the pain they may have caused, increases care for self, and for all in the world.
I wake this morning with the words of those who supposedly love me rolling around in my mind.
No body likes you.
You have nothing nice to say.
No one will ever want to live with you.
You have no friends.
The same bitch keeps coming home.
I’m curious if any of these people know what they have planted in my mind, if they even care that these are the words and actions that are attempting to create a personal belief system.
I must distance myself from these types of communications. Honestly, when we speak to each other do we consider the seeds we plant in the mind? These words spin in thoughts even after they are said, they live there in the mind far after.
Often when we hear things such as this the reaction is one of defense. We may even follow it up with something equally, or even more so, brutal. We may find that we get involved in the word play that tears at a persons heart and self esteem.
These types of words, these communications which roll around in the mind long after they are said, are the type of things that grow self loathing and self doubt. These words are much of the cause of self harm. I hope that those who speak them are not aware of what they do, for if they are and they do it purposefully, then they are consciously working to promote suicide and pain in others, and that dear people, is simply not a good thing.
This pattern must be broken.
Humans have lived with this sickness for a very long time.
Until we recognize it, we will not be able to repair it.
Reversing the damage is an “all people” involved necessity.
If there is nothing nice to say, then at least we can stop saying anything.
The cycle needs to stop.
