The hardest work you have to do is to learn to depend on your Inner Self because you have been taught to look always to someone else. ~ Venice J. Bloodworth
It may be difficult to comprehend, but you are not meant to bend to anyone elses will. You are a sovereign being and at the deepest core of you, you have something that is more real than anything that this world has taught you.
You may have been looking for it all your life, and you may have had proven to you, time and again, that it is not here. The issue of whether it is here or not isn’t the sad part … the sad part is that so many do not recognize that what they have been searching for dwells within them. People run around asking, “Do you have this love I seek? No? Well, how about you?” they ask the next person, and the next.
A wise woman once told me, and others, when it came to the proliferation of pain, and the holding back of that which is good … “STOP IT, just stop it.”
Individuals have power to turn tides, especially when working together to build harmony, and that which benefits the whole.
Darkness only holds those who permit it to. Without your consent, it cannot live in your heart, in your mind, and essentially, in your life. When you stand, when you rise above that snare, you are showing how it is done, and living a life that will assist others in doing the same.
See the BIG picture.
Know that everything is short lived,
Including negative scenarios.
Creating a world where love and goodness reign is indeed a possible reality … Upon your choosing, it will be … whatever you desire.
This dream that is ours
This dream that the world can wake up to itself
Through rapturous respect and radical reverence
This yearning for love
This unfurling request for tender living
This is not too much to ask|
For this is the way of our soul when we let the sunlight ripple in our mind
And the breezes teach us how to touch
When we let the gaze of the deer fall softly into our eyes
And the salmons steady returning remind us how to bow to our own beginnings
When the forest floor finally shows us how to share
And the steady patience of the trees seeps into the curve of our own spines
We shall fall softly into the dance
Of our own becoming
And recognize ourselves in all things living
But first we must bow
That paves the path home
Sound ~ as it rolls off the tongue and out of the mouth it is also echoing throughout space, the space in which you stand, out like ripples in the water. If you hum, you can feel this vibration in your body, when you talk, put your hand on your chest … feel it. This is the same as what emanates into the world. This is your creation.
The words you speak have power, the power of intention. If you are tired of the same old drama, create something new. This is your gift, you were born with it. Just make up your mind to what you would like to see more of, think on it day and night, imagine the steps you’ll take to get there, and start walking, perhaps not literal walking, but the mental steps … move forward.
Intuition is what many call inner guidance, others call it their guardian, or the angels, or even God. Whatever you think of it as, embrace it, trust it, you are guided to higher ground if you will but listen and feel it. Notice the synchronicities as they occur, notice doors of opportunity when they open, do your part … walk through into the experience if it is one that seems beneficial, one in which will cause no other person harm.
When someone with skills to teach appears, and offers a class which could open inner potential, take that class if you are able. If you are not able to at the time, remember it, grow the thought, and as soon as you are able to, do it. You owe yourself this learning, you owe yourself this opportunity to be more than you were before.
There is a manipulator behind the scenes, influencing humanity to inflict pain, suffering, and fear upon each other. I look around me, and I realize what I see is a reflection of that madness. They are not powerful, they are not strong, they are not brave … for if they were, they would admit error and work toward changing their own hearts. No … they choose to cause suffering and then they feed off of the pain and fear that results from it.
I thought it necessary to starve the madman and those with him, however, upon further pondering, I realize their diet simply needs to change. Instead of feeding on suffering and fear, they ought be made to swallow joy and calm, care and compassion, Love over hate.
When we recognize that we are under this influence, we can then begin to alter our own consciousness, cultivating joy within our own hearts and minds and lives. It need not be seen or agreed with by others, only known to us. When we stop hurting ourselves and others, when we instead paint, or dance, or walk in the forest, or create in any way … whatever it is that lets us visualize and then feel the joy over our accomplishments, we then recognize the sovereignty within, and we are closer to our true selves.
Let us work toward cultivating peace in our hearts, forgiveness of self and for others. This is what will eradicate the madman.
Joy occurs, self realized power of creation comes into our awareness. The manipulator is left with that … and it is this which will strip him, and those with him, of their power over this world.
War on this and war on that is not the answer, it only creates more pain, more suffering, more fear and hatred. This is what they want, this is what strips us of our power and makes us as ‘food’ for the manipulator.
Let us claim our sovereignty, let us come into the awareness that permission is not needed to stand in glory … not greed, or power of possessions and a controlling authority … but true authority over our own lives. No man … indeed no entity, has the right to strip us of what belongs to us … our inner power, our ability to create calm within the storm.
I am a sovereign being who has authority over this life. I see you, and I have shown you how it is done. It is possible to walk in madness, and then walk straight out of it, coming back, consciously, choosing joy, compassion and care. You have been fired, the job you’ve been employed at for so long has now ended. No longer will you be rewarded for any work done there. You have a new task, one in which your only payment will be sovereign truth, care and compassion. Your diet has been changed. No longer will you feed on fear and pain. NO. Now you will experience wonderment, innocent love and glee. You will nurture this in your own self. You will do this, or you will go hungry. You will starve. You will cease to be. The Cycle. Ends. Here. Now.
Oh dweller in the stars, watchers of this world, how may I participate in the ceasing of the endless pain, sorrow and suffering … how do I facilitate the end of the need for those who do so, to cause, and feed off the ills of this world, and all sentient beings? I for one love it here, and yes, I love the long walks in the wilderness. However, the parasites who feed on the proliferation of dramatic suffering need to be eliminated.
I begin my day thinking of wood, chopped wood, delivered to my house for winter fires in the fireplace. I think of candle lit evenings, roaring fire in the fireplace, soups and chili’s and home-made breads. Cobblers and home-made ice cream, doggies on my lap. Beautiful colors of fall … and hopes that next spring will rebirth a growth that will not die straight away due to poisoning of the skies and planet.
I really love it here, I wish I could stay forever. I would like the children, and their children, to experience the love for this planet that I have had opportunity to grow. My hope is that some day they will be able to drink from the rivers … ice melt … there is nothing sweeter.
It is important that citizens take action to ensure this happens. What actions, I do not know … however there are many who are moving toward cleaning up this planet. If all we have to offer is a voice, then let it be heard to raise awareness of those who poison the earth, sky and waters. If we have opportunity to take it further, let that be done as well.
Holistic medicines need to have their place in the world, being too dependent on others for our own health … is not healthy. Listen to your body, it speaks.
I plan on coming back once this life is finished … I would like there to be something to come back to ~ something beautiful, fresh, and clean. I would like to learn from those who take plant medicine seriously, and our connection to the earth as sacred.
May it slow down … may it purge the false … lab created medicines and foods … let our hearts and minds burst open and know who we are, and the sacred bond we have with each other, and all life.
May we learn to dance in the storm while the earth cleanses itself.
May the rotten not produce black fruits for us to bear.
May joy, peace, and love reign once again.
Have you noticed how moving toward a great dream summons from life’s jungles the fiercest lions, the scariest tigers, and the grizzliest bears… who eventually turn out to be the noblest teachers, the bravest guides, and the dearest friends?
You’re on your way,
