There is so much negative emotion in this world. It manifests in all areas of our life.
I don’t need you to believe me. Just observe and decide for yourself.
Fear, hate, resentment, anger, retribution, revenge, intolerance, blame…
All those emotions are our energy.
This is the energy that is abundant in our world and it’s getting worse.
Are we justified in feeling this way?
I believe so.
Does it help?
We may feel better right now and it may even bring closure, but history has shown that nothing changes. Even though quality of life for many has vastly improved, those feelings still remain and as we become more connected, they may even grow as we perceive many more injustices through our net enabled world.
These emotions end up collecting and pooling into something much bigger till it becomes something enormous. Like attracts like. When enough collects, it always… always manifests itself, and we experience devastating outcomes.
For things to change, we need to change our mindset.
What if we choose to send thoughts of love, wisdom and compassion to all who we feel have wronged us? What if we worked to awaken our leaders and those who wish us harm?
It may be the hardest thing we could ever do. To not only forgive them for their blindness but to bless instead of curse them.
If we continue down this path, we will get more of the same.
You may feel that they don’t deserve redemption. That they must pay for what they have done. And I can’t blame you for feeling that way. I would be a hypocrite to say I’ve not felt the same way.
But until we shift that energy to love, we will all continue to experience negative outcomes. Nothing is going to get better until we do.
At this point in our history, many are awakening. But awakening does not automatically mean love. It is a choice. It’s always a choice.
I, myself, feel the frustration and anger. Like many, I would love to tear down the systems and make them pay.
But it’s not who I really am.
I need to choose love and hope that by doing so, it will help heal not only others, but all that is wrong in this world. I know it won’t be easy. It will be hard at times. There will be days when I just need to vent. It’s where I return to that is important.
I’m okay with that.
I will choose love.
