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.

Quote of the Day

“Step up. Break away from the status quo. Inspire others.”

I was scrolling through Instagram and happened upon a post from the American Ballet Theatre, I believe, and saw these words in one of their posts about being a professional dancer. These words stuck with me.

If we are to live our best lives and live our fullest and greatest potential, we need to step up. Challenges arise and we are tested. Our will, hearts, and desire are tested. We can rise to meet those challenges head on.

The status quo is a societal burden that has weighed humanity down for too long. Let us rid ourselves of this unnecessary obstacle. It serves no purpose, therefore it is useless. So let’s break free, be free, live our lives, love ourselves.

Inspiration comes in an infinite number of ways. And our want to be good to others begets the best, not only in ourselves, but others as well. Kindness and goodness go so far in this life. May we make these our way of life so that we may continue to grow, be, and do better.

Personal Affirmation

I am limitless. I define myself.

*

The only limits you will ever have are the ones you inflict upon yourself. No one can ever take away your spirit, your heart, your soul, or your light. It is yours and yours alone. People can physically infringe upon you and cause you literal harm, but when it comes to your mind and spirit, that’s all you.

Many of us are taught stifling and limiting ideals and beliefs when we are children. It is our job to unlearn those things. We must live our own lives and find out for ourselves what it is and isn’t, who is and isn’t, what does and doesn’t serve us. It is up to us to live, try, explore, think, and do for ourselves. –  AJ

Pain

Pain is necessary, suffering is not

Pursue your passions, accept your struggle. Let your pain shape you, and love transform you.” 

         – Mirtha Michelle, Castro Mármol

Pain is a tool to be used and learned from. It is meant to help us. It assists in our growth, which makes it an important factor in life. We just need to remember this, and pain itself, as well as letting go after the experience, won’t be an issue. 

Suffering, on the other hand, is neither necessary or useful. Suffering begets extra negativity that we do not need. It is what causes us to hold on. Holding onto things, emotions, ideas, and people we do not need and that do not serve us is unnecessary. We do not have to suffer. Suffering is a self-inflicted mechanism that we have 100% control over.

Accept what you can not change, and learn to change what you can. Always be on the learning curve. Pain is your ally. 

Feel and let go. Attach yourself to nothing except Love. 

The Key

“You attract what you are, not what you want.”
We each have to put in the effort to get what we want and need. Be all that you wish. Work on yourself, every day. There is no limit to what you can achieve when you act of love and with love.

The Answer

Other people are not our enemy. Hate, Fear, Negativity, Doubt, Seperation, and Ignorance are the names that our enemy goes by. We must not forget that these are the ones that destroy our relationships, with ourselves and others. These are the ones that make life more difficult than necessary. These are the ones that kill, steal, and destroy. It is these we must combat at all times. 

 People will always be subject to one of these. That is why we must equip ourselves with the means and knowledge to overcome and conquer them. It is through Kindness, Compassion, Unity, Understanding, Patience, Calm, Goodness, Light, Good Vibes, Good Energy, Empathy, Love, and Service that we become victorious over the enemy. We will lose battles, but we win the war. 

 We are the answer to our own problems. It is through each of us that we grow and better life and the world. It is through personal relationship that we grow and better life and the world. Do what you love, love yourself, love others, be grateful, be kind, do good, listen to yourself, listen to others, believe in yourself, believe in others. When we are connected and happy with ourselves our connection to all else grows and strengthens. 

All it takes in life is the courage and bravery to take the necessary risks to truly and genuinely live. To live for ourselves and do for ourselves which in turn benefits everyone and everything around us. When love is the focus and the way, we never lose. When all of our experiences become lessons that we grow through and from, we never lose. When peace, action, empathy, unity, understanding, and love lead, we all win. 

 Even those that subscribe and succumb to the hate, fear, negativity, doubt, separation, and ignorance will benefit from our love and our power because that’s what love does. It betters everyone and everything. When love abides there is always room and time for change. Real change. All it takes is you. Be ready and willing to actively work, continuously, on yourself and do what you love. 

 When we are each doing our part and moving forward together,  nothing and no one can stop us. Let us rise up, in Love, together. Let us move forward and grow, together. Let us usher in a new era of goodness, kindness, creativity, unity, compassion, empathy, understanding, and Love. We can do this. It has already begun. It’s never too late to choose Love. Choose Love, today and every day.
