When you feel like you’re in over your head and you’ve lost direction, have faith and keep on going. Sooner or later you’ll get there.
I was talking to a friend the other day and she was saying how heavy everything felt in the world, like someone had sucked the life out of everything, that hatred, chaos and disruption were seeping into every facet of life right now as we struggle in limbo between two opposite paradigms. The world is dangerously deficient in joy, laughter and lightness. The innocent minds of people around the world are being subjected daily to non-stop unrest, discord and heaviness, completely absent any joy. Humanity seems so easily distracted by anything I don’t think they even realize how joyless life has become. Politics has not only divided our country and the people, it has hijacked everything we do and it injects itself into everything with negative, ego driven drama. It is exhausting, it is literally sucking the life out of us and changing who we are. This has got to stop before we devour ourselves. We have to wake up and see what is happening to society, we have to find the courage to say enough, we will not live our lives like this. We must create a new form of self governance for a new world. The old world is broken beyond repair.
Look at California closely right now, this could happen anywhere. They have to try to create a new state to get out from under the insanity of tyrannical control to where they can live their lives again as they choose. Things seems way out of control right now, as both paradigms fight to define who we are. People are strung out to their limits, their shoulders droop from the weight of it all. That said, we must not let ourselves be pulled under! It is up to each of us to make a supreme effort to instill joy and laughter back into life. First we have to admit we are lacking joy in the world, then we can do something about it. Being without joy is insidious how it creeps into our lives and begins to quietly take over, almost unnoticed because we are so distracted.
The new moon was Tuesday, its energies are still strong and we can use them to set a strong intention to bring joy back into our lives and hopefully into the world. We just really need to reconnect back into living life mindfully, staying aware of what is going on, how it is affecting us or how we are affecting it. It is true that we create our own realities, that what we think and how we think affects our life, but so does the environment in which we live. Right now it is hostile, it is angry, it is negative, it is heavy and we need to realize this and balance our lives out with joy as well or we go under. It is up to us to manifest this joy for it is not coming from anywhere else. Be honest with yourself and ask yourself just how joyous is my life? I think we can all stand a few more laughs, I know I can.
To remain stressed out in the darkness is not living a balanced life. If we are not getting adequate time spent being happy and laughing then the body begins to break down. Our thoughts affect our bodies just as our bodies affect our thoughts. We are all one being, from head to toe and everything in between. Life should have joy and laughter and ease and to live without it is criminal. Find ways to free yourselves from this heaviness, find ways to bring joy back not only to yourself, but to others as well, for bringing joy to others brings joy to you. I think a great many people feel bad inside and they don’t even realize it, they probably don’t know why they feel bad, they just do, waking up to all the tension everyday. We have to break this pattern and create a new one, a happier one. It is time to float free not sink and drown.
Thanks to Millie for her post that triggered me off…
Blessings and joy to all,
I feel great change is upon us. Soon the pangs of change will spark fear in many, for to give up what is familiar is to walk into the unknown, but we must! I sense a moment coming soon when life as we know it is going to radically change. How that change manifests itself is up to each of us and how we interact with change. Are our hearts filled with faith, do we believe in ourselves, are we open to perceiving life in new ways?
How can we prepare for the inevitable? The key to our survival and our road map forward is incumbent upon one important ability we must hold onto for dear life. The ability to dance with the wind, to bend and sway in any and all directions when needed, we must learn how to let go of what we think life should be and be willing to float confidently wherever we are meant to go, doing whatever we are meant to do. Staying strong in the moment asks us to be willing and able to bend to whatever circumstance comes our way and not falter., to shuck our rigid ways and open our hearts and minds.
So much of what we see playing out on television these days is honestly hard to watch. We are seeing the rigidity of the old paradigm unwilling to release their hold despite the fact the ground beneath them is crumbling away. It is painful to watch the ego in action, controlling lost souls who are unable to see anything outside of their world. Eventually their hands will tire of holding on tightly, they will cramp and grow stiff, giving way to their fall from grace. The fact they are unable or unwilling to bend, to flow or to move forward outside their comfort zone is their undoing, let it not be ours.
Begin today practicing letting go of your need to have things the way you want them. We are entering a new paradigm, a new era of BEING, we must begin by building new and stronger foundations from which to construct the new world. I always refer back to Albert Einstein when he said man cannot solve its problems with the same minds that created them. This is where we must begin, by opening our hearts and minds to new ways of being and trusting that all will be well. One can’t risk and rebuild without trust and faith. Honor them, nurture them and practice becoming a new you with love and compassion. The crack in the armor has opened up and the light is coming in, there is no turning back now, only forward we go!
Blessings to all,
Despite another four inches of snow and driving winds, sweet Bizzy was able to leap through the snow drifts to come and eat his tasty treats. I am so thankful he began coming to the porch and I was able to help him survive this brutal cold. One more day to go Bizzy, then we have the 30’s back again. This cruel cold will dissipate. Yea!
