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. 

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. 

Personal Affirmation

I live in a constant state of gratefulness, thankfulness, ease, and bliss. I put up no resistance to life and what it provides me. I accept my path, I know my purpose and my truth. I fear no one and nothing.

I flow as life flows. What comes comes and what goes goes. I know who I am. I live my truth. I do what is best for me and in the best interest of everyone and everything around me.

I stand for what is right. I stand for justice. I stand for peace. I stand for myself. I stand for you. I stand for Love. I know that life will always present challenges and I face them, head on as best as I can.

I know that darkness will never go away. I embrace that, and that light also, will never go away. I accept the duality of myself. I accept the endless possibilities of life. I cherish and love the Earth and all of her creatures as they are simply others forms of myself, as I am another of them.

I Am that I Am.

I Am Enough

Repeat this to yourself everyday, and especially when you really need to. Marisa Peer made this exercise and I am grateful to have it and wanted to share it with you.

Say: “I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough.

Say it, believe it.

You are enough.

You are enough. YOU are enough.

You are enough. You ARE enough.

You are enough. You are ENOUGH.

YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.

What I’m Learning

Life is a journey in which nothing is meant to be held onto, except Love and Light. Good and Evil have their respective parts in each of our journeys, but what really matters is what we do, how we handle things, and our perspective.

The way to go is to let life flow. Enjoy what you can while you have it when you have it, and do your best to learn and grow through darker times. Everything is a process, and struggle is a part of the story. The key is to just go with it. 

Do not let yourself get attached to anything and revere everything as the wonderous gift that it is. Fear will come and go, doubt, pain, anger, sadness, hurt will all make their regular appearances. But do not dwell in any of them.

The past is a treacherous place to dwell. Do not hold on to it. Let it go. Learn what you can then move on and be better. Nothing good comes from staying stagnant in one place. 

And an imperative lesson, always be on the learning curve. Always aim to grow from and through everything. It is better and far more helpful to choose Love and Light. It can only ever work out for your good.

Hope, do not despair.

Think for yourself, be creative, use your imagination.

Grow through what you go through. (VERY IMPORTANT)

Take the world as it is and work toward how you want it to be. 

                                       ACT.

Actions matter most in this life. What you choose to do means everything. And there are consequences to everything. Be mindful of what you do and how you do it. 

And especially, learn to master forgiveness. Forgiveness is freedom. Freedom from the past and unnecessary suffering. It excuses nothing but allows you to not be bound by he past and the darkness. But in some cases, darkness is meant to take hold for us to learn and grow. It’s all about perception and discernment. Use them wisely and remember to not get stuck on the dark places.
