We Are The Remedy

“Where there is poison there is a remedy” – Mage (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword film)

I’ve used his quote before but it sits especially with me right now in this time because it is so true and absolutely vital that we each take this to heart. We are in a very important and incredible time in history and humanity.

The tide has turned and it is the dawn of a new era. A very different world than we’ve known in a long time, if not ever. And this quote speaks to this truth. There has been a long reign of poisoning that has gone on in the world, very long and very sickening. But that time is ending. We are entering into a new space and moment. A space and moment in which Love rules. It is a time of healing, a time of rediscovering, an unbecoming. This is the era of Returning.

There was a time in history where humanity was in tune. We were in tune with ourselves, we were in tune with nature, we were in tune with life. We celebrated living and savored he experience. We did not tie ourselves down with unnecessary worries, things, and work. We did what was vital to our well being, nothing more. We coexisted with our surroundings and made due with what we could make and create.

I love learning about that time in history. It was so pure and rich and vibrant with culture, and compassion, and appreciation for all that is light and good and a profound understanding of what is wrong and how to handle it. We are now returning to that. More people, now than ever, are accepting themselves, their truest, deepest, rawest, purest, most beautiful and natural self. People are more accepting of others and unbothered by the things that make us each unique. We are beginning to celebrate ourselves and one another again. We are beginning to take up for and support one another like never before.

It is truly a beautiful time to be alive. But as history goes, chaos precedes change, good and positive change. But do not be weary and do not fret. As long as each of us does our best and is lives in and through love, all will be well. Let not chaos control your heart, let love rule. Let Love be your guide.

The Link in the Equation

” – but our countries are counting on us to miss the link… they are painting the enemy foreign and selling the product domestic… so let this build your anger for the depletion of our oceans, but make sure your anger goes to the right recipient.”

– Madison Stewart (aka Shark Girl)

 

This is the truth and the key to taking back our power as the people. We have to realize, acknowledge, and accept the atrocities and the depth of the atrocities we and our governments create. We have to first realize that what is happening is wrong and then that we continue it and normalize it every single day by our continued participation. The power lies with us. 

 We are the ones who fuel our oppressors. We are the ones who do the work for them and make their wrong doings possible, through willful blindness and fearful compliance. We can no longer exist under these circumstances; especially when we do not have to. We are under no obligation to add to our own suffering. And the only way to change things is to take radical action. 

 People were made to be afraid of that word. It is a powerful one, because when we become radical, things get done, things change. We have to start putting our best interest first instead of the oppressors. Anger is a useful tool if applied in the right way and mindset. It can be used to fuel good, creative, universal change, which is much needed right now. 

 In life, there are very few requirements in the grand scheme of things, and the #1 requirement is that you show up. You have to show up, for yourself and others. You have to act and take things into your own hands. You make the difference between war and peace, justice and injustice, hope and despair, right and wrong. You are the link that creates the world around you.  

 Your inaction is just as vital, and more in some cases, as your action. Your choices truly do matter. You truly do matter. Your life and presence here in this world, at this moment in time make ALL the difference. You’ve got to be willing to take charge of your own life, see things as they are, and do what you can to be a positive and helpful force during your journey here.
“- the world does not need people who hope for change right now, it needs people who will fight for it.”   – Madison Stewart

Life Lesson

Dealing with your own pain is hard enough, but dealing with that of someone else, especially someone you care for and love deeply, is a whole other thing all together. 

You can’t fight someone in their struggle, let alone about their struggle. They have to heal in their own way, in their own time. All you can do is be present for them, patient, understanding, honest, truthful, supportive, and loving. It’s not a walk in the park. Seeing another suffer is one of the absolute worst things that we have to deal with as humans. But it happens. And we have to be there for people in their struggle. They have to deal and we need to be there for them. Because though their struggle affects us, it’s not about us, it’s about them. Remember that. We all have to learn. 

The Solution: Acknowledge, Accept, Love

There is cause and effect. A problem and a solution. We have an abundance of issues that need to be solved at all times, but we have a significant amount at this present time. And we seem to like focusing on the wrong things. We spend way too much time being upset about the situation and forgetting to do something about the situation. What we need to do is focus on the solution and enforce it. In this specific case, we need the solution to all of us coming together and making this world a better place.

Here is the solution: We start treating each other better, ackowledging, accepting, representing authentically, and above all, loving one another for who we are as people and living beings. We start showing kindess, care, and respect for one another. We start honoring each other. We start recognizing one another for whatever it is that an individual or group of individuals is succeeding greatly at no matter their race, culture, religion, sexuality, sexual orientation, age, or gender. Those things are a part of who we each are, but they do not define us. We’ve got to start thinking for ourselves, questioning things, and coming to our own conclusions with open hearts, open minds, and the willingness to work, help, and learn from and with one another. It is time to enter an Era of universal acknowledgement, acceptance, and love. We are all special and each have something amazing to give this world and we all deserve the chance to have every privilege and opportunity to live, experience, and enjoy everything this beautiful life and world has to offer; as well as what we each have to offer.

No matter what, we all deserve the best and can have it. It’s simply a matter of us coming together and making things better. Let those with their negativity, close-mindedness, small-mindedness, judgments, hatred, and limitations be left to their own devices. They will try to stop those of us who oppose them; we need not be afraid or falter. When we come together as one, we are mighty and we are victorious. They can not stop us. The thing that they can never ever take from us, the thing that they can never stop, is our love. That is exactly what we are giving and sharing, and how we are going to change the world for the better. So my friends, let us love. Love freely, love truly, love genuinely.

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.
