What are your perceptions of reality? With each and every one of us being unique and different, we can’t possibly see reality through the same eyes. So if we all have a different take on reality, how in the heck can we all come together and agree on anything? It’s obvious how divided we have become because of the shallowness of politics. It seems to me the only way we are going to return to common decency and sanity is by adhering to sensible life laws that pertain to the whole of humanity. We have tossed aside the ones we used to live by. Do not tell lies, treat one another as equals, do not judge, show kindness and compassion, help one another, always live with honor and integrity and always show respect for one another etc. We do not share the values we once did, they have faded away and disappeared from our attention. In other words we no longer have a central ‘anything’ to bring us together in commonality. We have splintered and separated ourselves into isolation. It is time to break free of outdated perceptions and open our hearts and minds to creating a better way of being in the world, a new reality, a new story..
If we have learned nothing else since 2012, it is our understanding that we each create the reality in which we live. We share the planet, we share our lives, but we each have a separate reality. Now it seems the biggest question of all shouting out to be heard and answered is how can we bring a gazillion separate realities together to coexist in harmony? Hmmm….Good question. I think it would begin by having a shared concept and direction that we all need to be going in together as one force, but we need to share our desires first. We never come together to discuss such things. I never hear the people being asked what we want! Do we even know what we want? You can’t just say we want peace, that is too vague to work with. Break it down and find the core.
It is time for dialogue amongst the people. We need to begin talking face to face again and getting to know one another, what we want, what we think. It is an obvious fact now that we need each other to survive and thrive in the world. At present we exist in our bubbles oblivious to who floats by our space and making no attempts to reach out and communicate with them. We need to figure out who and what we are so we can figure out where we want to go and the best way to get there. As it is always pointed out, it unfortunately/fortunately requires us getting our own lives together first. We have serious issues that need mending from the suffering and abuse that has been heaped upon humanity throughout the lifetimes. We carry many deep scars from our pasts and sadly they creep into our present and disrupt the process. It’s why we must be straight with ourselves first before we can be straight with each other.
Learning to handle ego is a huge problem for us to deal with as it spider webs off into a billion different directions, most of which hamper our forward motion. We get hung up in judgments, jealousies, anger, insecurities etc. They warp our perceptions of life and therefore we can not expect to create well thought out life laws to live by. If each of us is together and strong and thinking clearly we can create healthy and secure life laws to guide us forward. I cannot emphasize the importance of self discovery enough and the critical but plain old hard work of letting go so one can move ahead. We are being distracted daily from this necessary work as an informed and together population is a threat to those wishing to keep control over us. Stay focused! Do lot allow yourself to be dragged off course by manufactured drama. Stay present, stay true to yourselves.
Blessings to one and all,
