I have been thinking a lot today about everything going on around me. It has been for me a difficult time and I am hearing from many others that it is for them as well. The energies are intense and very heavy right now. Nobody ever said moving from one paradigm into another was easy. We can see the day to day struggle people are dealing with as well as the deep division that has split this country and driven people apart. It is no wonder these are such complex times to navigate. The foundation beneath our feet is undulating violently and we feel insecure about everything in life right now. We can’t trust lying politicians, we can’t trust our lying government, we can’t trust lying corporations and their products, we can’t trust the medical profession or the drugs they push, we can’t trust the food we eat, the air we breathe or the water we drink. So now what? What can we trust?
Trust is the glue that cements humanity together. Trust in ourselves, trust in each other and most importantly trust in the Universe. Without trust we have chaos on so many levels. Trusting ourselves and our own judgment seems to be the most critical issue for us to work on at this moment in time. Why is trust so difficult for us to attain? Because we have been lied to, our moral fabric has been torn to shreds, all of our long standing beliefs have been turned on their head and are no longer accepted by society much of the time. What’s important to notice is that nature doesn’t seem to be having these dramatic difficulties. I am thinking this is because nature does not have an ego to deal with and therefore accepts things as they are. So often people ask “Why are we here?” and to them I say “to learn how to tame our egos and master compassion by thinking with our hearts not our minds.”
I so wish we as a society were advanced enough to communicate by mental telepathy. We have bastardized words and their meanings to such a point we can no longer communicate successfully with one another. We use words to attack someones integrity now rather than for making our point understood. If we could use mental telepathy we would know what everyone is thinking, there would be no more lying and cheating, no more judgment of each other. It is where we want to go but we seem so far away from that reality coming true. I believe this moment in our human story we are meant to be asking ourselves the difficult questions, thinking outside the box and working hard to come up with NEW answers. This is NOT the time to sit back and do nothing to push for much needed change. Where are the opposing voices to the insanity we see and hear everyday? I see but a few demanding change from the travesties that have been and still are, failing our society. It is deadly quiet.
I wish I had the answers to all of these mind boggling questions and problems. It’s what keeps me up at night. How can humanity get beyond this place we appear to be stuck in and move forward? The only answer I can come up with is to get right with ourselves first. Everybody is running through life with a hundred different masks to hide behind but in doing so they are hiding from themselves as well. If you can’t be true to yourself how can you be true other people? Everybody is living a lie and hopefully sooner rather than later this has got to stop! How can we trust anybody if we don’t honestly know who they are? We humans have a whole lot of serious work to do and we need to stop wasting time bitching and moaning about the state of the world and get busy changing what we don’t like, both with ourselves as well as humanity as a whole. A great deal of the unhappiness society is experiencing seems anchored in knowing we need to move on but we are afraid to do that. We sadly are letting ourselves down and that disappointment is at the core of the unrest we are experiencing.
The world may be filled with liars and fakes but that doesn’t mean we have to be that way. We are being called upon to live with strong morals, to be truthful with our words, tame our out of control egos and begin to live from our hearts not our minds. Someone has got to begin this process so why not each of us? Change will not just manifest without our actions perpetuating it! Stay strong and true to yourselves. Be the change!
Blessings to all,
