No More Silence

I’d like to take this post to send out all my love, light, good energy, and good vibes to every single person. There are a lot of terrible, horrible, unforgettable things that go on in this world. I understand that some wounds go too deep, and that there are some hurts that time can not heal; but, no matter the struggles, trials, and tribulations you’ve endured, know that you are cared for, you are loved, and that you are not alone.

We live in a world where (a lot of) the people who have power do not use it to enhance the world, but rather to control the world.
We can change this.
We’ve but to simply love each other.
In spite of race, beliefs, ethnicity, background, ideals, no matter the differences. WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS WHO HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE AND BE AS WE CHOOSE.

We can coexist. We can overcome oppression. We can break out of the small box we’ve been put into. What we must all remember, is that our lives are in our own hands. Sometimes that means we will have to go through hell, high water and back; but we can make it. We need to come together. We need to stand up for one another. We are all a part of this world, it does not need to be every man for himself. There are billions of us here, why not be there for and care for one another?

The reason why things have gotten this bad as well, as I have said before, is because too many of us remain silent. Silence, in the wrong moments, is deadly. There is a time to be silent, and a time to use your voice. People must learn the difference. When someone is treating you wrong in anyway or towards another, say something; when you see someone doing something wrong, say something. When someone is talking shit about you and trying to bring you down, be silent. Hold your head high, look them straight in the eye, smile, and go on your way, what someone else thinks of you is none of your business. Don’t involve yourself with people who like to gossip, spread rumors, be mean, and spread negativity. They will do you no good.

I know I am guilty of being silent, but no longer. I have found the voice that has always been inside of me and I am using it, and using it wisely. It matters that we speak for those who can’t, that we do for those who can’t, that we love those who feel they can not be loved. Other people matter, not just yourself. We are all connected , therefore we are all affected by the things that happen to our fellow people.

Nothing separates us but our own wrongful ideals. We separate ourselves by class, race, location, judgment, high-mindedness, stereotypes, and so forth. We don’t need any of that crap. All we need to do in this life is love ourselves, well, and love others, well. You get what you give. I strongly encourage you to read a book called “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book explained my life and has changed my life for the better. I have begun to really practice this teaching and man do I feel good. I must warn you, you will only truly receive the message of this book if you have a truly open heart, mind, spirit, and soul. You must not let any kind of judgment, preconceived ideas or ideals, nothing of that nature, get in the way of what Mr. Ruiz is telling you. To truly live these words you must be, in every since of the word, open to this life enhancing teaching. I hope that it helps and encourages you like it has me.

To Be Honest

I’m feeling quite inspired and very happy. When I look around, at the Earth, at my family, the people I follow on social media, my friends, I find that happiness is truly created by me. Everything can be as good as gold with all, and i can reflect that. Everything can be falling to pieces, and i can reflect that. I can focus on good and see the light through the darkness of moments, or I could be like many others and focus solely on the problems and troubles of myself and the world, and I could wallow in self-pity, grief, sadness, and anger. The perspective, the choice to choose which I will do, is mine.

I read these two things, and it reminded me that life is what I make of it. I will say the same to you. Life truly is what you make it, no matter the situation you are born into. What you want, have it. Take what is yours. Be. Discover, create, build, who you are. Enlighten yourself. It doesn’t matter where you start, just that you do.
