Save The World? Save Yourself.
I got home last night from a weekend away, and asked my 19 year old son, "So, how was your weekend?"
He replied, "There's a guy on Youtube making videos of himself killing kittens, and about 30 people are trying to catch him. And now he's just killed a human on video...Kobe Bryant has died and there's a killer zombie flu from China. I'm great mum. Ha!"
In a world that has literally gone crazy, and will continue to do so until every last bit of sick, perverse, twisted, ill, destructive and denied bit of unwanted ignorance has come to the surface for us to FACE HEAD ON, it's time we woke up and smelt the truth.
When we ignore our inner demons, the suppression can only sustain so long until it re-bounds right back up again, bigger, better, and bloodier than ever!
When we pretend we're feeling fine under layers of lip gloss, spiritual wish-wash and media induced Hypnos, the madness must out. And now it's running about, begging for a different reaction to the one we're giving it.
We've got to wake up people. Collectively. It's a team thing.
And no faking it allowed under a cloud of dope or other such numbing agents.
The truth is, as the truth has always been, that we seek to know ourselves. When we don't know WHO we are, we are like the musk deer bashing our heads against our inner walls and blocks, trying to find the Source of what we long for.
We know it's close, yet we're so far from home, looking in all the misleading youtube videos and insta quote-photos, trying to remember the real thing.
Love is the real thing, and You are the Source of it. The very well of the ultimate wellbeing is within you. The One and Only, the One True Love, the best friend, the beloved, the answer to everything and reason for being.
Absolutely NOthing makes sense without it. When we lose heart we lose who we are.
And although it's easy to say, it’s not so easy to do. We only have to look around us and see how many half measures we've made and how much disharmony resounds to realise that we have yet to get in deeper and immerse. We're still paddling the edges, clinging to concepts, afraid of getting absolutely submerged in real bliss. It's as if we're addicted to suffering. It's as if we like being helpless.
To help the world, you help yourself. It's not helpful to make it someone else's job to save you. It's not helpful being helpless. It's not helpful carrying your mess into other people's lives, even as you boldly attempt to help save them. The weak can't save the weak. Save yourself to save the world. We are the cause, what happens in the world is the consequence. Treat the cause.
Treat the cause. Treat your demons, self loathing, weaknesses, pain. Treat your guilt, fear and hidden shame to a dose of loving attention. Where's your empathy when you need it? Where's your compassion, can you receive it? Love yourself to bring more love to the world.
You don't find what you're looking for in another person. Your Home is in You. You cannot enter the kingdom of heaven though someone else's heart. The door is in yours. You won't find peace by blaming someone else for not giving it to you. Your peace is in you. You heart beats only for you. Your emptiness is only filled by you. Your Source only calls your name. Fall in, and fall in love.
Love and gratitude
