My previous relationship was very hard on me and I don’t know why I chose it and continued to choose it. I guess I was lucky to get out of it in the end when I did, as many stay in toxic relationships for many years or decades, for a lifetime or even lifetimes. There […]
We are all collectively creating this dream of life. As co-creators, we thus have the individual responsibility to create a peaceful world. If we each imagine our world as safe and filled with the joy of all life, it will be so. And so it is.
If our world is not as we wish, it is our duty and responsibility to change it in living action, not just as wishful thoughts.
We are all the same – as Rumi said –“Longing to find our way back
Back to the One,
The Only One.”
We don’t need to suffer – we are not here to suffer.
“The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is. When the mind is perfectly clear, what is is what we want.”
~ Byron Katie from Loving What Is
Pure acceptance of what presents itself, removes the power of the suffering mind. When we accept what is happening, and accept whatever experience presents itself, whatever conditions we encounter are just so, conditions that will always be changing in the current of existence. All conditions are changing, all of life is transient. All of life is a teacher of impermanence.
The suffering victim asks – “why me – why is this happening to me? It should be happening this way. This is unfair. Why. Why Why…?”
It’s natural to respond to challenging circumstances this way. If one is the recipient of a difficulty, particularly those which are unforeseen like an accident, or the sudden loss of a loved one or one’s own imminent death, it’s almost a natural response to ask “why me” and to question God.
Our society does not teach us how to encounter grief and loss, how to process suffering, or how to accept change.
We tend to create a lot of drama from the perspective of “why me – this shouldn’t be happening!”
I do believe there is an implicate order and every story is a slightly different tune played with the same instruments (theme). Victor Frankl believed that everyone has a specific purpose in life:
“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life… Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.”
What is your purpose – will you write your dreams in the sky – and make them a reality via taking action today?
Or wait for an eternity for a flash from the heavens?
Please take action now…
