I don’t believe any one of us needs to be told how crazy the world is right now, everything being pushed beyond their boundaries to the point of near explosion. What many of us may need to hear is what we can do to make things better. I am sure you have heard over and over again that we need to heal ourselves first and only then can the world heal. Well, what exactly or should I say, how exactly do we do this? Like the picture above implies we begin by finding a place to be quiet with ourselves, where we can think deeply and dive within and ask ourselves the tougher and more revealing questions about ourselves. It seems forever now we have been conditioned to look outside ourselves for answers and direction and being totally distracted from the essence of what is going on within us. That has been a great way to keep us off-balance and disconnected from self. It is now time to re-connect and begin to look for answers as to how we can become more of who we are truly meant to be.
What questions are we meant to ask to get to the core of the issue? Well, we can begin by sitting quietly and asking ourselves what our life story is. Who have we been throughout our life, what have we done in our life that made us who we are? What are your beliefs about yourself from childhood forward. Are they truthful or just stories about yourself you tap into regardless of whether they are truthful or not, it’s who you have believed you’ve always been. I like to write things down so I can go back and refer to my inner discussions on paper. Often times the stories we tell ourselves can be very limiting like doors shutting off whole segments of living to us because of our beliefs and fears. So we first have to discover where our beliefs have led us. Have we cheated ourselves by living an unlived life? Have you always dreamed about being an explorer but found yourself pushing paper in an office? Did you always want to be a singer but because you didn’t believe you had a good enough voice you stuffed that idea and became a teacher?
We have to try to unearth the parts of ourselves that have gone unacknowledged, for those areas of ourselves become unhinged from being ignored. It is the ignoring of that side of us that wishes to be born, that drains our soul and leaves us feeling unfinished and incomplete. It was our mission in coming here to fully experience ourselves and satisfy all of our desires of who we wish to be. So who is it you really wish to be? What is it you really wish to be doing? It is time to grow wings and fly off into your life fully and with joy. There is nothing you can’t do if you put your mind to it. It is only ego that chatters in your head and casts doubts in your mind, it is not reality! Reality has no boundaries. So if you start to throw out a lack of finances available to follow your dream as a reason why you have lived an unlived life, rethink that. That is ego saying no. For every rock it throws up in your path to stop you, look deeply for a way around it. You can always go around or up or over, you just have to figure out the way to do it.
A great deal of the unrest in the world today and the violence we are witnessing, is unlived lives expressing themselves. If we were all living exactly the lives we desired for ourselves there would be peace. Lack of peace within ourselves creates the lack of peace we find around us, for what we think we create. The slave masters that railroaded our lives to fuel their own selfish agendas stole our lives and it is time to get them back. It is time to go within and figure out where your life is lacking and fill that empty space. You are dying for it and so is your soul. It is starving in fact, if you are not feeding it happiness and love and contentment. That is the food your soul requires to thrive and in turn your own life will thrive. So go get quiet, find out what story you have been telling yourself about your life and discover those empty areas that need filling and go fill them! The world wants peace but we can only have that when each of us has peace within. It is not something you can win from war, it can embrace the world only when the people living in the world feel peace within.
Blessings to us all,
