If your like me, you've had those moments(days) where you scan the news feed with your morning coffee, and your stomach drops at what you find. What once promised to be a glorious day with birds chirping, has just turned into one potentially, not so divine. Wait! Your lover hasn't called yet either! That's it! It's time to hit it full throttle, you activate every fear in your closet, in your future, in your past. You get them all together and start to have a party, a pity party, one where no one is happy about a thing...
I just came down from a full blown episode of life’s tragedies raining down and dancing with my fears, doing a full blown waltz in fact. What with potential war, and innocent people convicted and perpetrators walking free, with yada yada because let me tell you, if one was inspired to, you could come up with EVERYTHING going wrong in the world, in 2 point 2. And also become very attached to that fear, and to that sadness, and to those stories. And believe this or not, THAT actually accentuates the problem, and I can also tell you first hand also doesn’t feel very good on a personal level.
So, how can that be? How can your passion for change be a part of the problem? It’s not about not acknowledging the need for change, it’s great for us to be aware and to put our feelers out and to be aware of all that is happening. However, what separates that from us becoming part of the “problem” (a challenge i.e. opportunity to learn and grow) is your ability to stay non-attached to the story, to the “War”, to the conflict. You want to embody your spiritual truth which is love, in that you embody the solution to the challenge, which Is love, not that you don’t acknowledge the challenge, and act like there is nothing here on earth that needs recreating.
FYI- I think that was a major “set back” if you will of the “spiritual evolution” I hesitate to type that because you know I think A. Everything happens for a reason, so these are just more ways for souls to come into awareness, and B. Spiritual evolution as in, all of existence is of a spiritual nature, evolving. But, a “set back” being, many peoples interpretation of “spirituality” i.e. our basic nature/truth, meant that we had to be happy 24 hours a day just smiling about how great everything was, almost a competition., who can appear the most at peace, fabulous, and happy!
YES. The call is to happiness, but first and foremost, the call is to truth. The idea Is to embody love, but that never REALLY happens without first letting go of all the darkness that lives within us, and within the world.
Because what about our calling to share that peace and light with the world? Like hey brother, I’m super happy over here… sorry you are starving to death in a trash can, going to just keep being happy? Yes, and no. How can we today be happy, but buy 3 extra protein shakes at the store and hand them out to the homeless. Or Write a post to inspire change, take up an offering, etc. When we acknowledge the challenge, we can find more ways to embody love and the solution for it.
When we “fight fire with fire” so to speak, in that we get caught up in the drama and in the story, we just add to that low level of vibratory frequency upon the earth, and we put a big rain on our day and emotional landscape… we don’t really come to any solution, we draw lines and create “thems” and “theys” ….and then we remember that it’s all perfect.
If you are like me… I can only speak from first person, I always say- be an open minded skeptic, keep what feels great, and toss out what doesn’t feel right to you, no matter who said it, even if it was me ( especially if it was me… ;) xo) If you are like me, you find yourself having experiences more often then not, for the purpose of learning and growing, and in my case writing about them. Dissolving the trying experiences into some form or piece of poetic art, and perhaps that while it was happening it was uncomfortable, but look from it, the good that has and will come.
And that! Is my advice friends, family. Stay aware, but stay out of the drama, embody the solution, and embody love. I go there for a few days and I am emotionally drained, there are people who live their entire lives in that space. Open your heart, your eyes, and your arms today friends.
Stay tuned for my next article with more tips on how you can keep your vibration raised day to day. What I am finding is, there is a direct correlation to my ability to hold the love and stay out of the story, with what I am consuming, and the activities I am partaking in. This in turns effects all layers.
Live Holistic, One Love.
