If you are like me, you want to shout from the rooftops the sky is falling. As you prepare to do so, or maybe share your thoughts with a loved one, you realize you don’t see the same sky.
I am very thankful for those that voice their concerns about out planetary crisis on a public platform. As they risk their career and reputations, they follow a guiding light within, shining ever so brightly on scientific inaccuracies by interpreting data that has led to confusion and fear-mongering.
Regarding health freedom, my gratitude goes to Robert F Kennedy, Jr., Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Sayer Ji (GreenMedInfo) and Dr. Kelly Brogan. These are individuals that have worked tirelessly for decades within scientific communities. They know the truth of the matter: integrity of the data is more important than accolades from the world at large.
Are we all called to this platform?
We can benefit from it, but on the frontlines within our very small community of family and friends, we must recognize a vital fact. Our actions and words are not effective if we are not motivated by love. This type of love is unconditional and is sourced from states of higher consciousness.
- “We change the world not by what we say or do but as a consequence of what we have become.” David R Hawkins, MD, PhD
- “Love is so powerful… that one loving thought in a day cancels out all the negative ones.” Hawkins
These are statements I remind myself. I operate with a strong sense of justice. I desire to see truth win, always. Yet, at the same time I realize, we all are on our life path at varying degrees. Thus, our understanding of current events is shadowed by our own path. I think to myself, if I was in Europe during Hitler's reign, would I be a Jew in hiding or would I be hiding a Jew? Would I shrink back and stay low and quiet, hoping to remain safe?
At this point I don’t feel called to protest in the streets, but I do feel a need to be armed with facts. I haven’t trusted main sources of media news for over a couple of decades. I do stay abreast of current political climates with a sprinkling of both sides of the coin, with curious caution. This helps with my empathetic nature. However, when I see injustices, my sense of right action rises.
I know between the two, empathy and justice lies the answer. I can’t be hiding to be safe and I must not judge. We are One and interconnected.
So, I settle this quandary
by first breathing deeply and asking my higher self, ‘What am I to be about’? The key to this question is not what am I to do, but what am I to be. My mind goes to great leaders that rose to the occasion with peaceful means during epoch times of upheaval: Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Ghandi.
They didn’t sit back and be safe, nor did they raise a fist or weapon. They steadied themselves within and then they walked and walked and walked. Their purity of essence drew others to them. Their words were powerful, kind and gave room for even the dissenters to reflect. They also were bold as they needed to be, speaking at times against injustice and falsities.
What do I take away from these musings?
In order for one to stand firm and resolute, one must take care of the self-first. If you are fearful, take care of you. Grow your inner being to a place where fear has no place. This is possible, it may seem miraculous or beyond reach, yet it is a normal function of higher states of being. It is attainable for all of us. It begins by guarding your mind and developing tools that increase your awareness.
The 6 R's. This list is beyond reason.
Why? Reason implies intellect and to be highly effective at this time requires: heart, insight, intuition.
Always tell the truth to yourself and others. Be real.
You are not your body; it is your transportation vehicle. This is a huge lesson for overcoming fear.
You are powerful beyond belief.
Your faith in humanity, in people. Ultimately most of us want the same things, for instance; to love and be loved.
Choose ways that make sense to you. Separate yourself from toxic or anxious situations.
Look for meaningful authors/speakers that speak truth to your soul. Read/listen, make notes and follow excellent advice.
Each of us have differing roles to play in this world, be ok with that. Some may be called to speak, others to be quiet. You may feel led to march, others to write or create art. Innovators may lead with new ways of living, others to support those endeavors financially. Each of us has a part to play. You are important no matter what, each role is significant.
The bottom line, be whole in yourself. From your wholeness, we all benefit.
Fear not my friends and be about what speaks to your heart. Live and love well yourself and others, may they be near or far.
