I’m not sure why but I felt like writing after a few experiences I had today. There has been a lot on my mind and I want to express it in writing…I hope the words and thoughts come out appropriately…if you like this or agree with it please share it 🙂
Why is it that we have become so disconnected from one another? When did we forget to love each other truly? There are murders and fights because of religion, skin color, beliefs, money, and so much more. We have gone so far to acknowledge our diversity that we have forgotten about our unity. We look at our differences as keys to our individuality, but what about the thing that connects us? Our diversity is such a beautiful thing meant to be enjoyed and marvelled at, not something that seperates us! Of course we are individual physical beings but what about the Spirit or Life Force that resides within us? That Spirit that connects everything and All.
We look at each other and say “You are different from me! I cannot treat you with the love that I treat myself with!” And that is not simply differences in physical attributes, but because we do not all believe the same thing or like the same thing. It truly hurts my heart to see how out of touch we have gotten with our true selves. Why have we inundated ourselves to believe that we are less than beautiful divine beings? Every religion tells us that we are created from ONE Source, so why do we fight over who’s Source is better than the other? Why are we so self-righteous? Why are we so angry? What has anger ever accomplished? Has it healed a scar? Has it mended a broken heart? Has it ever done anything worth noting? All it has ever done was bring about much choas in a world that is meant to be so beautiful and bright. Does the river cease to flow because an angry man jumped in it? No, it gently moves to the man’s side and flows around him! Why then do we feel the need to push through the man instead of simply acknowledging him and moving around him as the river does?
Life is so beautiful, with so much wonder and amazement, and yet all we seem to do is complain about this person or that person, this job or that job, this ailment or that ailment, this bill or that bill. We forgot how to be child-like…we forgot how to see the world as a brand new experience, a new adventure to be explored and enjoyed each and every day! Our parents and radios and televisions, although they may have been well-meaning, brought and taught us nothing but fear and overwhelming thoughts. We were taught to work hard for money, we were taught to be careful on our bikes so that we didn’t get hurt, we were taught that we could be anything that we wanted, but then we were taught to be realistic, we were taught to share, but then not to be too giving because we’d be taken advantage of.
Not once were we taught that within all of us was a Spirit that connected each and every one of us, that this Spirit has the power to heal scars and sickness, transform lives, and create worlds!!! Not once were we taught to hold steadfast to our desires and trust that the Spirit that is within us and surrounds us shall always provide what is needed. That because we are children of God, or Spirit, or Divine Source, that we are always taken care of. We are told to look for the answers from outside ourselves, from others. But the answers always come from within!!! It is that Spirit that illuminates our physical bodies that delivers the answers to us! When you ask it is given!!! Why would Spirit question whether or not you are worthy of the answers that are your God-given right?! We are worthy beings!!! When those answers will not only benefit you, but the rest of the world how could Spirit not jump at the opportunity to bless you with those answers?! Is our purpose on this earth not to bring forth the light in ourselves but in others as well?! Of course it is!! To truly connect with the Spirit within and lead the path for others to do the same!! It should be our privilege to help our fellow brother or sister! However, we first must find that beautiful light within ourselves so we can share that light with others!
We first need to start with ourselves by recognizing that we are forever eternal, forever beautiful, forever expanding, forever love!! For once we know this, it is then time to help others on their path as well!! It is much easier for another to tread the path once the footsteps have already been laid. This world needs light more than ever right now and I wish for all the world that we find the eternal Spirit within ourselves, one by one, until this world is shining as brightly as it is capable of!!! I hope that this finds you in someway and we can all begin to demonstrate and shine our eternal light in this world!!
With All My Love,
