We will have to look deeply into ourselves, and deal with our own darkness, but that is what healing is, to shine a light into that darkness. We will have to look at the world and see objectively the sad state it is truly in. That we have each contributed to this paradigm. We say all the time we need a paradigm shift, that society and this system needs to change. It is easy to claim this without shifting ourselves. But this is a dangerous approach to gain the change we truly require. It takes the responsibility away from where it is rightly needed. We are the ones who need to change, and we must do so internally and consciously, in order to radically redefine our involvement in the current paradigm. If you don’t understand the connection between what you are doing, the way you are living and the current state of the world; then it is time to pay closer attention. The world will not change, until we change. Through a deeper understanding of love, we can become the balanced and responsible children of creation we were meant to be.
Imagine a world where people were passionate about the things which truly matter. Love, connection, growth, healing, learning, and sharing. We could evolve more in one decade than we have in the past 1,000 years with such a focus. We are children here, and must recognize that we have so very much to learn. We must be compassionate with ourselves and one another. At some point we have to stop and think about what we are working for. We have to stop and think about what the money is costing us. We have to finally stop and look around and say, "Is this living?" or is this is something else? Living is the right to the liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Does anyone truly believe we were put here to generate interest for some corporation? Does anyone really buy into the idea that we were given this amazing blessing of a life to waste it behind a desk, or behind some counter? Why do we wait our whole lives to start living? We do we think we must earn our right to do so?
My friend family, there is so much more to life than this consumer driven machine, I assure you. We are chasing empty dreams disguised as success. Success is living in harmony with all life, success is figuring out that true love requires coexistence and compromise. Success is not about making your material world more comfortable, but instead making our spiritual lives more cohesive. That is true achievement. We can do much better than this, and we know that. We can find a way to live which no longer hurts our souls and connection to each other and the universal source however you define it. We can find a way to honor who we are and what we came from which will no longer require us to try to forget, but to remember. Tap into this energy with every moment you live, recognize the habits which are unfulfilling. Go watch the sunset, gain enlightenment instead of turning on the TV because you cannot stand the thought of your own thoughts. Do not run from yourself. Within you lies the answer you seek. Within you lies the connection of fulfillment you long for. We must each do the self work to heal and find peace. Once we have done that we can change our lives, and by changing our lives, we will change the part we play in this world.
Consider what we truly need, air, water, food, shelter and companionship. Each of these things can be managed in a much simpler and interest free way. Research alternative ways of living such as off the grid self sustainable housing. Consider what you would do if you were free to pursue your life's true purpose. This is attainable and I want you each to know that. I am posting some links below to peak your interest in this consideration.
