As an individualistic society in the U.S. you would think that we would be able to better take care of ourselves. It seems like such a contradiction that we as very “Individualistic” people here in the U.S. that we are also taught to be so dependent on others for solving our problems. We learn at a very young age that when we are in need we are to depend on others for assistance. We look to our parents, our teachers, our Pastors and Priests. We also have counselors, therapists, life coaches and law enforcement to help keep us in line by following the “code” morally and lawfully. All these supports just don’t seem to be enough. Many are turning from the church and refusing traditional medical care, counseling and other supports. As individualists we are rebelling toward everything we ever knew to be right and good while trying to find our own way through the rubble we call our life. Things seem to be getting worse as we all “race to find a cure” and feel like our efforts are futile. Not even the sanctity in marriage is safe anymore, in fact it almost seems extinct. Most importantly, people look to others to find their happiness.
Einstein said once, “You can not fix a problem using the same consciousness you used to create it”. As individuals and as a society we are searching for new ways to help ourselves but keep using the same old “formula“ to solve the problem. No one seems to know what to do and so the Universe intervenes with what seems likes tragedy and crisis but most times it’s those very things that initiate a new way of looking at a problem; a different state of consciousness.
My own personal life has seen a lot of upheaval and I don’t’ think the Universe is quite finished with me yet. The good thing though, is that I don’t think I will be repeating the same mistakes after this last 18 months of my life. I am truly looking at life with new lenses. If only we could get our entire society, the entire World to look at our World problems as an opportunity to work together, to heal, to forgive and to give without wanting anything in return. That is where change and healing begins.
Today, when my best friend, my Twinflame left to move back home I really thought he should have reciprocated the sentiments that I shared with him through my cards and gifts. I wasn’t looking for money or anything valuable just a reciprocation of my love and gratitude for him but in a more concrete way. I received nothing but a kiss, an “I love you” and “don’t forget me”. What else did I need?
My father came to me this morning as I thought over all this. He passed on in 2000 and he usually comes when I am struggling as a sign that he is watching over me. He prompted me to remember why I felt that way. I guess in a small way I wanted to walk away from this last 1 1/2yrs with something more than a hug and words. I wanted to know my future. I wanted security, something that showed the intention of a future, that be, friendship or more.
None of us truly know our future. No matter what anyone says it all can change in a blink. All you can do is give your love in the present without expectations and if it’s returned that is a gift. Humans rarely are able to reach out and help or give without expectation. We donate money when we know we have a tax ride off; we give support to our friends when we think they would support us; we give love when we think we are going to be loved back. As humans when we think our efforts are not reciprocated on our terms we pull back. As a government body we are always looking for the “return”. Our World will continue down this same path until we learn to solve things through unconditional love and gratitude without expectation.
As I type I think about this morning. I think that I shouldn’t sound so selfish when I think about what I should have gotten in return. The truth is I learned so much about unconditional love in this last 18 months and that is something I could not have learned on my own. I received something that no money could buy and the “returns” on it are endless. We get back what we put out into the world every day in our words, our actions and our intentions. Maybe you think to yourself, “Well love doesn’t pay the taxes.” but money doesn’t seem to fix war and famine either.
Help raise the vibration by extending your love in times when it is the most challenging. Maybe the answers you find there, the responses, will yield a better outcome. How do you know until you try? We are all connected, with that knowledge know every time one of us raises our vibration we influence the consciousness as a whole. Your next move could change the World.
Love & Light,
