CHILL OUT world.
Stop killing each other and driving each other deeper into madness.
You guys are hurting yourselves more than anyone else, and there is no “God” who condones killing.
In actual fact God is against it, but may repent it if only it is done is self-defence.
The war in the world is a reflection of the war within ourselves.
Don’t get all spiritually-saint-like on me and tell me you are different.
You are quite simply, not as bad.
But still bad.
Still suffering from the same war within.
Still fighting battles, and out for your own advantage, seeking power, money, freedom.
In the same way they are.
Yes, that’s right.
You may not agree with the ways in which they seek advantage, power, money, and freedom, and you may not agree with HOW they go about getting those things, but you’re job, for example, has given you an advantage, a level of power, money and freedom.
Now, let’s back it up here a little bit.
I’m going to go on a bit of a woo-woo trip right now.
Stay with me.
If you bite your nails, eat until you’re OVER-full, gossip about someone else, make someone else out to be wrong and YOU right, you are a slave to the same human condition as those doing disastrous things in this world. This condition is called – suffering.
Harm to yourself is no different to harming others. It is done in an effort to gain control and power.
Over your emotions, your environment, your thoughts, your life.
Instead of developing SELF-control and becoming EM-powered, you succumb to the ways of the world and spiral into suffering.
I’m not saying life doesn’t suck sometimes, or it doesn’t hurt.
Actually I think you’ve got a really good reason, heck a lot of good reasons, to be suffering right now.
And now, here is where we get even more woo-woo,
Get a hold of yourself.
Ok, so that’s not so woo-woo after all!
What I mean by that is, firstly fix the broken branches in your own life first.
Refuse to dwell on the suffering of others as a way to make you’re suffering feel less brutal.
Fix things on your side of the fence first.
Then, don’t try to fix anything else.
Don’t. Just don’t.
“Why?”, I hear you ask.
“How can I just let everything go?”, you say.
Yes, don’t do that either.
“Then what the hell AM I supposed to do?” I hear you ask.
Clean up things on your side of the fence.
Make YOUR garden THE most beautiful garden in the world.
Take care of things on your side of the fence. Always.
Maintain it. Give it love. Care. Appreciate it and enjoy it.
Then, and only then, may you inspire others to clean up things on their side of the fence.
Only then, when you’re not having to step over all your own mess to get down the path and out the front gate, will you be able to see the changes you want to see in the world.
This IS a totally woo-woo idea, I know, but stay with me.
Imagine for a moment, what would be different if you were to focus on your own stuff right now once and for all.
It would be painful, confronting, a little (or a lot) scary, I know.
But what else would happen?
You see, the ginormous suffering you see in the world is happening to wake YOU up to the suffering that’s happening on your side of the fence. In you. In YOUR life.
It’s a reflection of you’re own condition. On a larger scale.
And it’s so unbearably in-your-face, because you refuse to look at, or take responsibility for your own state.
You refuse to deal with it, change it, accept it, forget it.
And I’m not saying you should spend the rest of your days not FEELING anything.
Feel it all!
After all, you can’t clean up what you’re not willing to look at.
I myself had some hard things to deal with this week.
I let myself feel it.
I knew it was just emotion.
I didn’t turn it into a pity party or and endless rabbit hole of suffering.
And believe me, my ego absolutely tried to bring up all kinds of old fear and self-limiting beliefs.
I noticed what was happening, and quickly stopped the ego trip in its tracks and focused on feeling the feelings out.
It hurt, it was painful, but I wasn’t suffering. I was still able to laugh even though my heart was heavy.
I was still able to speak kindly to others even though I had nothing inspiring to say.
So, to round it up, because I know I’m kind of going on and on here.
The world does not need one more person in this world to suffer.
AND, it’s up to you to decide if you will or not.
Remember, you can feel, my God, SHOULD you feel.
But you don’t need to suffer forever.
Even though the world wants you to because it makes their suffering feel less, or perhaps justified.
But you don’t need to.
Yesterday I watched my niece and nephew lay down on the floor laughing over nothing.
One would laugh hysterically then stop suddenly, and then the other one would laugh uncontrollably and stop.
That was their game.
One after the other.
Until they had to stop because after almost forty-five minutes of laughing they were now coughing.
Their stomachs hurt, their eyes filled with tears, and they could barely breath.
And yet, they were having the time of their lives.
I know we’re not kids, and things are different now, and I get that the “real world” doesn’t give us as many opportunities to lie on the floor and laugh for nearly an hour.
But, and this is just my guess, I kind of think you’re afraid to even give it a try.
You’re afraid to let go of your suffering, because it’s so familiar.
You’re afraid so much laughter could cause your shell to crack and you’re afraid of what might then pour on out.
Or perhaps you’re in the thick of things right now.
You ARE in real, palpable pain.
Then take care of things over there my love.
Don’t just let it stay this way.
Little by little clean up things on your side of the fence so you can get back onto your path.
You’re not supposed to be hiding behind those four walls.
Take your time, or get it all done in a day.
But chip away, clean things up,
And make your way back to the front gate.
Set yourself free.
There’s a beautiful world out here waiting for you.
And as you walk down the street, you never know,
You might just find someone else cleaning up things on their side of the fence, who you can lend a few tools to.
Be brave, beautiful.
