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. 

No More Silence

Life will never be good enough if all we are is a bunch of feuding people who share a limited amount of space for the length of our short lives. This blatant hatred and cruelty people are giving to others they don’t know or understand is a shame. We let the ignorant, judgmental, and close-minded people speak, but those who have a voice to raise and help the innocent victims of senseless crimes remain silent. Why?

Things will never be better if we continue to allow these horrible injustices to happen. The way that society is, is that they don’t care until it directly affects them, and then they want to pull out all the stops to save and “defend” themselves. Don’t be a part of a cruel and ruthless society, be a part of the human race, a race of being’s that are kind and loving, caring and giving toward each other. All this turmoil, war, and pain will not cease on its own. We, as people, human beings, decent and good need to stand up for what is right. We need to defend what is right.

What many people forget and refuse to see is that what’s done to those who endure terrible situations, will more likely than not happen to you becaue you allow it to happen to others. We have to look out for one another. We have to have each others backs. We have to stand firm and together in times of trouble. We need to help our fellow man. As a society and the human race, we need to look past the surface, past selfishness, past race, past culture, past sexual orientation, we need to see each other for who truly we are. These things are just the surface, your race, your culture, they are a part of you, but they are not all that you are. You are an everlasting, beautiful universe that exists in this precious life.

We must come together. If we don’t, things will only continue to get worse and worse. Do we really want that? Do we really want our future generations to be put into an even darker, filthier, more terrifying black hole because we put them there. Because we can’t get our shit together and let go of all these petty things we think are important? We are here because of our past generations refusal to let the yokes of old hatred go. What will this generation do? Will we make it worse? Or will we make the world a better place than when we came into? Just know, you have to live here and deal with these problems too. You may not be affected in the same ways others are, but you are being affected none-the-less. For better or worse, that’s up to you. We can make things right or we can make them worse. We each have to make our choice.
