While I was driving to do readings on Sunday, the following message rang through me over and over, 'instead of knocking me down, reach out to help me up; not so that one day I may help you up, but so that we can stand together, stronger, as one.'
Unity is the only way forward, from a place of love, compassion, kindness, and without ego and fear. In regards to the original post and private messaging that followed, I was made aware that my reasons weren't clear and more so, ever changing. It is true. For me, sometimes it's like that, while I seek to sort things out.
These are often the conversations that I have in my head. I guess what I learned, is the reactionary. I reacted verbally rather than thinking things through. I am human. I am Spiritual, which is, in the end, what was bashed.
Being Spiritual does not mean that I am perfect, always right, or ever right, for that matter, or that I don't make mistakes, am never challenged, and/or that my life is always rosy. Being Spiritual, for me, means that I seek to find the balance, the peace, the God and goodness within, in each and every experience. And it can be ever changing as I learn and grow, with every single experience.
....On a personal level, I am going through an experience that it is clear to me, that I want it to end. This is honest. I try to not focus on it or give it legs. I think now that this may be part of the issue. I am sure that there is a balance... more to think of in this regard....
After my original post on my page, the person contacted me through personal messaging with more of her perspective on what I said. Texting, messaging, emailing, blogging, these all allow us to share our point of view, however, this point of view is subject to so many variables and interpretation. I know that I did not post for the sympathy or drama; but rather, it was a way of reaching out and more so, to stop the drama. This has allowed me to figure things out on my terms. Perhaps this was not in the most mature manner, correct, or appropriate in the eyes of another, but in a manner that I chose nonetheless.
Facebook has allowed me to connect with so many friends from the past and I have enjoyed each of these connections. I have also made so many new and very valued new connections. What I have become aware of through this particular chain of events, is that fb has been getting a little too crazy, and for me, more so of late and I see now that it just seems to be too much.
Too much negative, personal attacks, bashing, sadness, racism, ignorance, strong opinions, closed minds, one-sided blindness, nasty name calling; the people, it seems that those that are getting ahead are the ones with the fewest values... but educated, highly, in many cases, and often the biggest pocketbook. The points of view, quite simply, boggled my mind. I could not fathom what was transpiring.
We often seek to see the signs afterwards. To be honest, the signs are often there, we keep seeing them, but we are ignoring them, choosing not to look at them, or turning away. So many answers to the questions out there are right in front of our faces. But we keep asking ourselves the same question over and over again, but nobody wants an answer.
I finally decided that I needed to step back and not get caught up in everyone else's fight, even if they are passionate about it. I get to chose what is important and how best I am able to make a difference. It's all really just got to me. I have my own 'fight' you might want to say. We each do. And this is a really great thing. This is the only way that we will be able to accomplish all that there is to be done to get our generation headed back to that place. To that place of love. We have to start listening. Completely, with both ears, heads & and with our hearts We have to start being better humans.
Sounds silly but I could feel it coming on with Cecil the lion. It seemed to have come to a heads with the murders of the 2 reporters on tv. The world is such a mess with Donald Trump at the lead. Some of what he says has legitimate points, but the manner in which he speaks... And it's not getting better. Bill Cosby, the subway guy, that Dugger dude... what is going on? What has happened to our values, morals, and goodness. They are all smooched in and tied nicely up with a bow of lies and manipulation.
We really have to be better humans.
I couldn't find many positives on that day, and this began to make me so incredibly sad, so I decided that I need to step back. If that's not real, I not sure what is. Being Spiritual is not about having all the answers. but it is about listening within. Listening to our hearts and our souls. Listening to God. To the Universe and the greater good of all, not just me or you or one. But me and you as ONE together. Stronger.
Principles of the Miracle #Eleven♡ the beginning and the end ♡ 'Prayer is the medium of miracles. It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.
There is no greater message than this. There is no greater journey that carries us back to this place. It is here that we dwell. A break was necessary for me to refocus on what is important and to remember where my journey is to take me. To the Love. always to the love.
I have learned an incredible amount from this journey. I have learned to understand and listen within for what I need to know and how I need to respond. I then make choices from this place.
So, for today~ Be kind. Be Generous. Find happiness. Seek love. Be love. and I'll work on the same. Lori-Lynnxxxoo♡
