There are so many ways to experience our divinity. There are millions of opportunities in a lifetime to manifest our highest self. The easiest is to realize that we are not individuals. We certainly have our own paths and our own unique personalities. However, as we have spoken of many times, we are not billions of different people. We are all one energy, with one goal; to experience our divinity and to connect with our higher selves. The child at the playground is you. The unemployed man at the coffee shop is you. The woman executive in her office is you.
With that knowledge how do we segue to Trust? Easily. We have so many definitions of trust but the one we will focus on in this blog is trust in our fellow man/woman.
Daily we hear the fear soaked ramblings of the media. It’s a wonder anyone even leaves their homes with all the “danger” that exists in the world. Ironically, if we were to get out of the house and turn off the radio or TV we would experience the world for what it truly is; magnificent. No, that is not pie in the sky thinking. It is reality. More to the point it could be a reality if you make it so.
Time marches on they say. Yet with all the technological advances and medical interventions, people are still pretty much the same. They still have hopes and fears, wants and dreams. There is still the same percentage of people who are kind, helpful and Loving. Conversely, there is still the same amount of people who demonstrate behaviors that don’t serve themselves or society.
Is this idea difficult to comprehend? It will be, if you are steeped in the fear that is pumped into our collective beings through the media. The world has not gotten meaner, more dangerous or out of control than any other period in time. But we are hard pressed to think that when we are barraged with images and reports, both overt and subtle, of crimes, attacks and brutalities that show up daily on the TV news and on the radio. Yet we continue to watch these images and listen to these rants without any thought as to how these fearful energies are impacting us. We watch these images and are drawn to them like moths to a flame. Yet we are not moths. We are discerning people. And as discerning people we need to know that kindness and Love still abound; it always has and it always will.
So trust in those around you, whether they are strangers or family. Whether they are your friends or your neighbors, know that they share the same light as you. In sharing that light, they too do not wish to see it falter or dim. Each of us has a limitless capacity for Love and compassion. We forget that when we watch seemingly endless loops of war and crime on TV. We can become hardened and callous.
But as always, there is a choice; trust. Trust in the belief that you are not alone. Trust that as a piece of God you and those you Love will always be safe. Trust, that no matter where you go there will be other lights and pieces of God to help you along your way. Avail yourself to these lights and compassions. Don’t go it alone. There is never a need.
To live in fear is to not live at all.
There is no need to cloister our children for fear that around every corner is a danger waiting to befall them. It is important to protect such a valuable resource as children. But if we smother them and teach them to be fearful then the innocence we wish to preserve will be extinguished by our own very “efforts”.
As adults we need to share the same belief; that the world is a safe place. If it wasn’t safe we wouldn’t be here. There are kind strangers who are compassionate. We ourselves can hopefully think back within the past couple of days to instances when we showed kindness to a stranger. And if we haven’t, why not? Are we worried that someone will be fearful of us? That they will misperceive our intentions? They energy behind kindness is radiant. It can never be misconstrued unless seen through fearful eyes. If those we wish to help see our intentions through the eyes of fear, then it is clear they will not be within our light for very long. Their fear and worry will conflict with our kindness and accordingly they will be drawn to similar energies of angst.
So venture forth with kindness and compassion. In and that journey realize that other light emitting being are doing the same. As you spread an energy of kindness it is almost seemingly impossible to believe that any other energy exists. Trust that the world is a beautiful place and indeed that is the reality we will create for ourselves and those we Love.
With Light and Love,
