We live in a world where it's easier to convince people that there are wars going on than there is redemption, where the iron fist is more necessary than the handshake, when it comes to solving problems... Where aggression is exciting and kindness is boring....Where being ahead in life is more important than being aware in life... Where gratitude is replaced by regret... Where we would rather be safe, and secure in our shells, than struggling to come out of it...Where we would rather look at a million reasons not to chase our dreams, than to see that one spark of hope, that tells us why the dream is worth it... Chained by our learned helplessness...we wallow in the chambers of our past and curse the dark night, than to see the light in our souls. We live in a world where it takes so much courage to shine, and be our true selves.
It doesn't really bother me that we are in duality, for we have chosen this experience, it is the only way we can learn the lessons and manifest the virtues placed on our hands by our ancestors, and those before them. What tugs my heart, honestly is that so many of us know this, and yet so many of us pretend that it isn't happening. A lot of us would rather sit comfortably in the prison of our minds than run free and take risks in the paradise of our hearts. Waiting for a certain salvation to occur when salvation is something we can create in our daily lives, every minute counts and every day a chance to be the change that we wish to see.
All the great teachers of history, Ghandi, The Beatles, Buddha, Christ, Einstein, Lao Tzu, Confucius, Tagore, Gibran, MLK, Mother Teresa, etc... regardless of what cause they were fighting for, walked in one common ground, the HEART... In sharing their souls they let the energy of love flow freely in their life and work, so free that the energy still lives... it reaches us today. This is light, my friends... diffusing across infinite channels, beyond the constructs of space...and time. This is the miracle of love.
If I had one wish for the world right now, it would be this. To see us breaking away from our perceived limitations... changing fear, instead of fearing change... I long to see this energy coming out of our shells... freely ... To see more of us, if not all, channeling the truth of our hearts... for when we love... ourselves , and the self we see in others... When we truly love... We become stars, and the night can only make us paint a lovely darkness.
