The Best Stuff in Us

Times of challenge and strife tend to bring out the best in human beings. When our backs are up against the wall, we dig down deeper and use the best attributes in our tool boxes to help each other pull through it.

We find we have more fortitude, depth, kindness, compassion, courage, spirituality, generosity, industriousness, capability, independence, connectedness, creativity, determination, vision, faith, and good intentions then we ever realized.

That’s quite a list, is it not? I’m sure I’ve missed a few, but..

Oh wait, I forgot the most important one… LOVE.

We find out we have more LOVE than we ever thought possible. Yes, we tap into the potentiality of infinite love, not just for our immediate friends and family, but for our neighbors, for the ones we see are suffering in the greater humanity. We become bigger inside. We grow.

Perhaps that is what this time is all about, yes? This time of challenge is about our soul growth, a reaching out to achieve something that has lain dormant for a long, long time. We will see a burst in humanity that has never been seen before.

It is going to be a very beautiful thing. So, do not be disheartened. With love and determination, together we’ve got this!

Building a Life

There are two essential things, I believe, which bring happiness to people. One is to love and be loved. The other is to feel productive, to have a sense of purpose in life.

If we are lucky, we do work that we love. If we do not love our work (I have been
there, done that, and likely most of us have at some point in our lives), nonetheless, there is satisfaction in the expending of energy to build a life.

Building a life. Within the current scenario in society right now, let’s not lose sight of our desire, and our right, to build lives that we love. Much of our sense of fulfillment is rooted in our deep human drives.

Path to Knowledge

There are many paths to knowledge. The Earth has been speaking to humanity forever and she has not stopped. Our heartbeats are intertwined, and yet lately humans are abandoning her in favor of technology.

Keep technology in its place. It has its uses, but we are still organic beings. The Earth and nature speak of ancient wisdom that no computer will teach you.

A New Vision

Throughout all of time, humanity has experienced periods of light and dark. Historically, the low periods are an opportunity to examine the darkness, not just in the world, but also within us. Overcoming oppression is often a key theme played out in society during these times.

When I look at society right now, there can be (I think) no doubt that society has fallen to a new low. It appears to be acceptable for our leaders to bully us. (What right do they have?) And people in the interests of changing society use low energy tools such as shaming, blaming, guilt, and aggression to achieve their goal of forcing others to align to their viewpoint. It is just more bullying. Basically, humanity is groveling in the dirt.

We are so much better than this. It’s time to lift our eyes to the stars, and aspire to higher spiritual principles. We need to envision and work together to achieve a world of higher integrity and values. We can do this, but it’s time now to get on board and actively participate in creating a better world.

Nature’s Reflection

Nature offers many opportunities for reflection and contemplation. Each aspect of Earth’s beauty has its own personality and message, reflecting us back to ourselves, bestowing realizations that we may not have come to in any other way.

The Earth is our teacher, when we tune in.
