Half notes and serenades.
Aaahhh yes, youth was mine. Indeed it was all of ours. What did we do with it? Did we strive to create something positive and beneficial to life, or did we spend time and effort tearing it down, destroying it?
Personally, it was all too easy to follow in the foot steps of those who came before, who promoted a lack of empathy, who’s actions birthed a selfish thought and action. Yet once older, looking back, it is easy to see.
The question now is, what will we do to break these habits which have plagued humanity for generations? Certainly in life there have been deeds done which do not instill a sense of pride. There may be residue of shame, guilt, and sorrow from the way things played out. Those things are from then … and have no say in what will be.
Do not let yesterday determine your tomorrows. Do not let those who throw yesterday in your face determine your tomorrows. Tomorrow is for you to decide. Will you make the best of it? Are you ready to show your capabilities of creating good, equal to or greater than any of the negative which may have been in your life?
Circumstances will always prove to bring us the most beneficial opportunities. Often, we are forced to dig deep within and find the positive, bringing it forth in order to create peace in a chaotic world. This is a test, a stretching of ability, and while it may not be the most pleasant experience, it will enable your ability far beyond that which comfort level is able to promote in you.
When thinking of the past take only those things which are beneficial into the future. Lessons learned, skills honed, patience developed. All negatives of shame, guilt, jealousy, victim-hood, anger and hatred … leave behind, where they belong. They’ve served their purpose for those times.
Tomorrow is a clean slate, indeed, it is quite early today, so I will include this day as well in that statement. Wake, and begin the day with intention. Determine what today will be, and then act on that thought, that idea, that intent.
Bring compassion with you wherever you may go. Remember your sufferings, but only so that you are able to recognize them in others you encounter. You know how it is, act accordingly. Bring to them what you needed when it was you in their shoes.
You are capable of healing this land.
It is you alone who can bring forth what gifts you came with.
Remember them, what they are, and do what you came to do.
The circumstances we were born into did a great job of covering our abilities, drowning us in the worlds suffering. Shed what it has given you and build the new, the new you committed to before birth, the new you know you are able to gift this world, and all life.
Reseeding the earth is not just about birthing a new body, but about bringing forward and sharing new ideas and ways of living. Imagine the change you wish to see, and let it be … and so it is.
