Part of my great awakening came with the realization that the solution to this world as a whole - the larger picture we see where it's easy to say "life is a mess" - is actually so, so, so, so, so, so, so simple.
I've come to understand that ego, or the human part of us, the one that exists in lack and limitation, believes things must be complicated. We like to overanalyze and assess and scrutinize and judge and say this is a BIG problem I must solve... let me go work this one out.
When in reality the solution is simple. As simple as 1+1=2.
How do we change the world to be what we want it to be? Where everyone is respected as a sovereign being, free to choose what they do with themselves each day, where they feel empowered to live and express their utmost potential, where there is cooperation, love, understanding, and forgiveness, where we work more like a collective in an agreement that what matters the most is life above all else and what is in fact best for all... how do we create that?
By embodying it. We live that expression now, today. We become the best for all bug that spreads love, respect, kindness, understanding, and forgiveness to each and everyone we meet. We don't have to change any larger, external system. We simply change ourselves and the world will ripple with the change. We create the new wave... we SHOW, by our living example, that we value and love and care and respect and understand the true meaning and purpose of life on earth as the place where we get to express our joy, harmony, and passions. We are not here to judge or condemn, to ridicule or blame or say anything that needs to be different - because we KNOW ALL LIFE IS INNOCENT and has done the best it could with what it had and with where it was.
It's as simple as a smile. It's as simple as opening a door for someone. It's as simple as letting the car in front of you merge in front of you. It's as simple as reaching out to someone and telling them how much you appreciate them and have been supported by their living. It's as simple as being a little more patient with people, a little more understanding with people. It's about being the one to step down, disengage in the conflict and choose peace in a moment rather than battling in war.
It's as simple as a moment of saying thank you. It's as simple as saying hello to another on the street. It's as simple as extending a word of cheer. It's as simple as you realizing your utmost potential to be joyful in each moment and showing others that life can be joyful. Hurt people hurt people. Joyful people spread love.
This is not complicated, people. Live today as if you lived in a new world where love abounds and all are free and encouraged. Live today the world you want to see. Live today what you wish others embodied.
This reality we are creating, one that is truly best for all, is coming through each and every one of us. It's not going to come from the money system, the education system, the health system, the political system. It is coming from and through YOU and who you are in thought, word, and deed.
I implore you, if you hold ANY judgments that this world is not perfect as is, you are creating the imperfection. Change your ways, consider how you can lighten up, let go of the hurt, let go of the blame, let go of the judgment, let go of the idea that something is wrong, and rather embrace what is right in front of you which is LIFE calling you to see the innocence of yourself and all. We did the best we could and now we realize we can do better. We can be the change. We can spread the love and cheer and peace and the good news... the kingdom of heaven is here, within each one of us and we are here to share it with all.
I love you. Always, all ways, in all dimensions. You are perfect, you have come so far and I will always be here to remind you who you really are which is nothing but Love. Love is who you are and I will be sure you remember.
