This is so not a political post, but of course many, if not all of you will relate.
Yes, the world is seemingly wonky right now.
Yes, the world is very confusing right now.
Yes, the world can be quite scary right now.
Wish it to go away? Well, I do too, but it's not going until we all change. The change starts within. Remember my post immediately following the election? The Shadow has emerged? Well the shadow is still here and not going anywhere until all can look at themselves in the mirror and LOVE that person looking back at them.
The shadow is a tricky little fella; it is brilliant at churning up the unsavory. It is brilliant at pointing out the elephant in the room. It is brilliant at pointing out the lack. The shadow? All it truly desires is recognition and great love.
Of course it can be difficult to love that unsavory stuff. Remember, you ARE human and therefore perfectly imperfect.
That perfectly imperfect 'crap' is stuff we shoulda coulda woulda done differently in our personal past. ALL can relate to this. But if it weren't for that one lesson, we wouldn't be where we are today; growing, learning, and yes LOVING better.
Loving without conditions. Getting easier at saying 'I Love You' without constraints. For Love is real. Love is powerful. Love is healing. If your shadow has emerged, and it has, so have millions of others.
We ARE at a crossroads to slip back into oblivion or to step forward and claim LOVE as the motivator. What do you chose? IF you chose LOVE, and I hope you do, make a pact with yourself to spend quiet time daily in the essence of LOVE.
Spend time daily to allow you to feel LOVE. Spend time daily to send LOVE out to ALL. You certainly may focus on one area of the world, or a person. Each day will differ from the next, but if every single person sends out LOVE that is powerful.
It reclaiming LOVE as your motivator, you become more empowered. You are more courageous. The Dalai Lama says being courageous is looking fear in the eye and still moving forward. Each person has various levels of courage. As you reclaim LOVE of self, you become bolder, stronger and lighter. Chat with Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love. You will learn new acts of love to direct towards not only yourself but others on a daily basis. Sometimes all you must do is listen.
Can you commit to doing this for yourself daily?
I know I am.
