It seems that life is changing so quickly these days. From the predicted amount of snow to the actual amount that falls to the ground, it’s hard to know which way is up some days. They say this is the way it will be in these times and only those that can stand on their heads will be able to see which way is up. The Gita says that life is like a public inn, people come and people go and there is no need for attachment. And I agree. But these little gems of wisdom can be difficult to accept at times, for sure.
“One does not become enlightened by imagining beings of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” — Carl Jung
I have to say that most days I feel very lucky for all of the adversities I’ve had to face in this life. From childhood trauma, to addiction, to relationship issues — all of these things have pushed me along my path and made me become a better, stronger person. I was also blessed with direct experiences of something greater than myself, visions if you will. These changed my life forever and have always made me feel secure even in the most difficult times.
I wish I could give this security and certainty to everyone. Imagine: a life where everyone feels complete within themselves, no more looking outside for acceptance, approval, or love. A planet where everyone has enough and believes everyday that life will provide. You will be cared for and loved beyond measure if you allow it to be so. A certainty that everything and everyone is ok just as it is and as they are, from minute to minute, day to day, and year to year. (This planet supports life in all its many forms after all, this is a universal truth, so while it may feel like the opposite some days, why would LIFE try to kill YOU?)
No more self-doubt, no more greed, no more lack, no more hatred. These are the things I wish I could give to everyone.
