Does anyone else have the feeling that I do right now? The feeling that something big is coming. That change is just around the corner. That this mundane life we are leading is just a precursor to something better. I really do believe it.
I have been slowly but steadily removing/cutting out anything from life that would hold me back. No more negative people or situations. It is as if I am clearing out the closet of my life to allow something new to appear. For some reason I am in a great place of peace right now. You would think that I would be impatient. I just know that things will fall into place at the perfect time.
I can wait. I know that it is going to be fantastic and I can wait. I have the rest of my life to celebrate that. I know deep in my heart that this is one of those moments in life that I am so happy to be aware of. We don’t always know what is coming and I for one am so excited to just be.
My heart and mind are open to all of the new possibilities. I am sending out love to everyone who needs it tonight. Why not share this awesome feeling with you all. I am blessed.
Which path do you choose? Do you have a choice? Do you believe that you have a choice?
I have been thinking about this lately as I am finding many people in my life that are showing up and pushing this into my face. (Well it certainly feels like it anyway). There are many people who I notice live in denial land. They are quite happy not to see the reality or to blame someone or something else for their lot in life. They prefer to not have to deal with the consequences of their actions. This would be ok if the consequences only affected them. But sadly this is not the case in the real world. In the real world people get hurt at the hands of those that do not see or do not wish to see. You usually would say that these people are selfish and show no empathy towards others. They ride rough shod over others feelings and move onto the next victim. We all know someone like that. They act like they know what empathy is. They know what it looks like in others. But they prefer to manipulate to get what they want because that is more important to them. Is this because they have no choice, no control over their actions? I always thought that everyone had a choice. But I am finding that it is hard for me to believe that someone would live that way willingly. To lurch from one drama to the next, over and over again. It sounds like torture to me. To feel that you have to justify your actions to everyone all the time would just be exhausting.
How do you deal with it? This would depend on your own coping skills. It would also depend on who that person is in your life. You know the old adage “You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family”. It is easy to avoid a non-family member, but what if it is your immediate family? Do you cut them out of your life or do you find a way to be civil? Do you cope with the toxic family relationships because you know that to break away would invite a barrage of drama (and by this I mean emotional blackmail – you know master manipulators) by the others to bring you back into line to play the role that you have always played? I find it quite interesting how someone can take such awful behaviour from family because it is what they are used to, even if logically you know it is wrong, you still catch yourself falling into old behaviour patterns.
Choosing to follow a different path will invite resistance and sometimes pain. Here is another gem – It is a sign of insanity to repeat the same thing over and over again and expect a different outcome. You come to a point in life where you have no option but to change. You have every right to feel safe in your own home. You do not have to accept these behaviours just because it has always been that way. We all have that inner strength to change our lives for the better. You just have to believe it.
Life is about living – not surviving, waiting, expecting, wishing or hoping to be happy.
Be aware that you have a choice. You can decide to avoid people who influence your life in a negative way. Surround yourself with those spirits that see the real you and accept you for who you are. Understand that to focus on the past, the negative patterns and the pain stops you from living in the here and now. Shine your light into this world, it is what you were put on this earth for. Do not let anyone stand in your way. You come from love. You are loved every day of your life. Do not end up on your death bed full of regret about a chance that was lost.
You may be thinking – easier said than done and that is so true. The spiritual path that you choose to walk upon is yours and yours alone. Let it be about positive and happy thoughts. Love.
*A happy family and home life – Just ask yourself, on your death bed, will you lament how much money you are leaving behind or will you regret the loss of your loving relationships.
*Security – money can be lost and it does not replace your health. It cannot prevent your death. What are your core values?
*Personal Contentment – Find the right spiritual path that will fulfill your needs. What are you here for and where are you going? There is more to life than money.
Happy people have an abundance of riches in their lives, but it is not money. Money is printed paper. It is a possession and you cannot have a connection/relationship with it. We can have that connection with the people around us, with animals, with nature. As human beings that is what we were born to do. Since when has the pursuit of money and the destruction of our home become more important than that.
Your spiritual path is about love. Loving your self, your life, your family and friends. It is about nurturing. No where in this world, in any culture or religion does it focus on hate, greed and death. We need only shift our focus just a little.
You can feel this change occurring right now. The conscious shift of thought towards peace and love. Everyone would have you believe that survival and the almighty dollar is all that there is. But that is simply not true. The connection has been lost because that is what they want you to believe. Those in power, the corporations and the war mongers perpetuate this myth because that is how they make more money. More money than they could ever spend in one lifetime.
We are the majority and we can effect this change. Just with one little step. Connect with other like minded individuals. We are love, we come from love and we can share this love until there is nothing else.
There, my daily rant is over 🙂 But I am very passionate about everyone finding the spiritual path that is right for them. We are all different and we tread our paths differently. But love is universal.
