The Heart Of The Matter 2013





Life in the new millenium is a continuous cycle of acceptance, tolerance, forgiveness, and rebirth of self. The past is in the past, but there have been made many mistakes that we will need to acknowledge and correct. There is no other way. Thank those who try your patience. They have made you stronger where others allowed you to be weak. Thank those who have treated you mean and unworthy, because they have made you see what you do not want to be like. Everyone has strengths in different areas, and to find your own is where you will flourish and grow the most, but not without forgiveness. Everyone has a right to be who they are, even if who they are seems heartless to us, it is not for us to judge, really is it?

We dig the hole deeper without allowing others to be themselves as much as we hurt ourselves when we ignore the choice we have to feel as we deserve to feel. People can word things in such a way that brings thoughts to mind that allow for expansion of who we are into a better people, but if we stay too long in any given feeling, we lose out on life and abundance. Just because you get a feeling does not make that feeling a fact, it just makes their opinion that caused the feeling in us part of who they are, and a need for us to recognise part of who we are.  To begin this process of tolerance, forgiveness, understanding and rebirth with those in our immediate presence, is a step towards the rest of the world doing it, and the world will heal from centuries of intolerance and greed. It causes a ripple that will remain even after we are gone.


The world is full of people who are ugly on the inside right now. There is war, greed, and many unresolved wrongs that have been done to people on the earth and to the earth itself, but if all we can do is care about how we feel about ourselves, without placing any effort at all to understand others or forgiving ourselves for having allowed those wrongs to happen, then the cycle just keeps repeating itself, and we become more and more vengeful. Just because we were not ever a murderer, a drug addict, an adulterer---does not mean that our attitudes and opinions did not feed into another becoming those things.  Forgiveness and an attempt to understand others and ourselves gives us a way out, but doing so takes a lot of acceptance of our own part that we played in any disagreement, even at times when we think we were totally innocent. Most human beings do not like to see anyone suffer, but I believe that we all ask to be born into whatever circumstances we were born into.for a reason. How does one child live in poverty with a smile on his face, and another born with riches live in misery? Some of us are young souls and some of us are old souls who have been incarnated here on this planet many times before, and we come to grow spiritually...thus we ask for certain circumstances and it is up to us to find the ways to grow from them. You would think that at 56 years of age, having been preached to all of one's life, a person would be perfect, but truth is, we never reach perfection in human form... a perfect human being is one that makes mistakes for all of their life and continuously acknowledges it I think. There is no reward or present for loving another human being. The reward is in the loving itself. 

If you choose not to believe that, that is ok too. It could be you are simply not meant to believe it in this lifetime, and that is no big deal either. Great things have been known to come from great disagreements, it's just that you never hear about those things in the media. Wink
