It’s so easy to fall into the trap that people have set up for us. Where we find ourselves blindly following and obsessing over things that we have been convinced actually matter. Like money and having lots of it. Yes, I know, money makes life easier and I’m not saying that money is bad, how could it be? It’s just a piece of paper or a coin that we as humans have given value to and have made life extremely difficult to live without.
We find ourselves sacrificing precious time with family and loved ones for money. We even sometimes sell our souls to make more of it. We have been convinced that we are nothing if we don’t have an exorbitant amount of it and we even look for life partners that are able to promise us financial stability if we choose them. But what about life itself? Actual life? How much of our time are we investing on prioritizing staying alive, being alive and, well, taking care of ourselves and our loved ones in every way that is needed and not only wanted in the form of finances.
Are we taking time out of our day to nourish our minds, our bodies and our souls? If we are that’s great! Have you taken the time out of your day to share your balance and your abilities with others? Or do you feel like sharing knowledge just isn’t your thing? I find that my success in any form only feels truly worth it to me when I have managed to share it with others. When give someone the tools and the knowledge to also find success in their lives. Whether it be in the form of writing or sharing verbally. What good is my life work, my life pain and my life’s success if not to share it with others to take from it any knowledge or strength that they may need. I’m happy to share and exchange energy and stories with you because I know that true success for me means that I have achieved my own personal goals as well as shared with whoever wants to listen, how I overcame challenges on the way in the hopes of them finding the will and the strength to overcome as well.
Recently the world has been ‘caught with its pants down’ and is now trying to do damage control, but this damage that’s being done is irreversible. Lives are being lost and people are getting sick. Everybody else sits in fear of the unknown waiting to feel safe again, waiting for things to go back to normal. So many people have lost their jobs and now face the challenge of feeding their families and paying for the roof over their heads. Some are panicking others remain calm but in the midst of all this we are all just fighting to survive. Because if we lose our lives then none of it matters anymore. Not the money, or the pretty things. Just the love that we share and the impact that we made will be left behind. So while we all sit at home, or even go to work in this uncertain time, what are we doing to maintain a balance in our lives and in our hearts? Are we mindlessly watching the news all day or peoples social media opinions and fear based rants and feeding ourselves with fear too? Or are we actually taking this time to reassess what’s important to us and how we have been living our lives thus far? For those of us that are able to use this time to make adjustments to our lives, to our priorities and for those of us who are losing what we know and have to find new ways to survive, how are we changing our lives in a way that will create a new path for us? A new perspective, how are we using this time to adjust? Are we reading more? Are we meditating? Are you taking the time to give yourself what you need while you actually have this time? Are you brainstorming ways to make an income if yours has been compromised? Or are you just allowing yourself to fall into the trap of absorbing all the dogma that is being spewed out to us, which seems to be blindly accepted and has been blindly accepted throughout the years.
Instead of just following the collective consciousness of the world, why don’t you take the time to find your own consciousness? Who you are and what you truly think and believe. Why don’t you take the time to look in the mirror and for once stop allowing external input to dictate to you who you are and what you should be doing. For once look inside yourself and follow your own instincts and be guided by your own true thoughts and beliefs. The time is now to make the changes you need to make, the time is now to use the isolation to your benefit and grow yourself in some way, the time is now to fight for your survival and to be bold in your convictions. Do not let the limitations of others stop you from surviving this time, from pushing through the boundaries of collective consciousness and finding your own way to live without the worry of “what others may think.”
Everything at this point is unknown, so instead of choosing fear, choose faith, choose life, choose hope and choose love. Choose to find a way even when there seems to be no way. Look to your maker, your God, look within yourself for everything you need is in there and everything you don’t have your creator will provide, for grace and love will always find its way to those that surrender themselves to life itself. The very being the gives us breath, the source of life.
At the end of the day, when you look at yourself in the mirror you have to be pleased with what you see and who you are because it’s you that has to live with whats inside of you, for nobody else will ever know but you.
