In this day and age, it is somewhat difficult to maintain your enthusiasm and keep on moving forward in life. With so many horrific things going on in the world people do not have the energy to just do what they love.
We become extremely shut down and start to wallow in self-pity and doubt. Been there, done that too many times. Our emotional watch becomes completely out of whack and we just go through the motions with absolute fear and despair on our faces. All we want is someone to tell us and assure us that everything is going to be alright. We wait. We become the endless waiters. Waiting for someone to rescue us. We want that imagined pink reality where everything is sunny and happy and none of this dreary, grim stuff.
As life often has its way, it’s far from that perfect fairy tale. Life is often difficult and dreadful. That’s the truth. No sugarcoating. Hurdles, obstacles, challenges abound. We surely don’t want that, we want everything to go our way.
However, what’s the point of life if it weren’t for those challenges? We would neither grow nor expand. Everything that we have survived in the past has brought us exactly where we are. In my own case, love is what brought me here.
Provided that we feel grossed out and disgusted by another’s behaviour our only response to that is with the opposite, which is love. And I don’t mean love as a concept. I mean love as a state of being. Man, that love is powerful. Much more powerful than hatred.
If you’re anything like me that you do want to make a positive change in the world, but don’t have a clue as to how to start, just practice the law of polarity. Wondering how you can do that? Just watch the news and whatever you see, which is mostly devastating make time to do the opposite. The only response to a violent world is peace. Make time to practice peace within yourself, by acknowledging how you feel. Send some love to your own beautiful heart as often as you can, not so you can immediately see the shift outside, but so you can notice a slight shift inside yourself first. The world won’t become peaceful overnight, but if your first choice is always peace and love you’ll start feeling more peaceful. I’ve always wondered how is it possible that in a world of such chaos there is peace inside you that really passes any kind of understanding.
You don’t have to be interested in spirituality to do that. You can begin right now. Slow your breath and say I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! In my own case, it felt weird at first but as I kept doing it something cracked open. Things won’t always go our way, but they don’t have to. At the end of the day, your own heart will still be here awaiting for your loving attention.
As an aside one book that has truly had an impact on me is Whatever Arises Love That by Matt Kahn. I lovingly recommend it and if you have the chance, please read it.
Please share more kindness and love to yourself first because you deserve it, as you are the love that you have always been and will be.
