Today I awoke with more thoughts about healing and about how we love ourselves and each other.
Often times when we express ourselves or speak of struggle or turmoil, we feel moved to tell those affected, how we should be or what we should do to correct it. Truly, if we could be one way or another, we would, and we would do it effortlessly. I know what I speak of because as I look at some past experiences, I too have offered my life supportive and brilliant advice to many. I do it because I think I’m really great at seeing peoples errors and fixing things in life, and perhaps I am. It makes me laugh that we would think we can fix people or have any affect on others by offering our advice or thoughts on self improvement. It also makes me laugh to think of why I did it. While not 100% of the time, often I did it to free myself of witnessing their struggle. I also did it because it was frequently a reflection of a similar error I was having in my own life’s experience. So really, who was the one who needed fixing?
Although I have spoken of this many times before, It is important to hear again. We are here to love each other, and that is all. The love will do the work much easier and effectively then anything we could say or do.
Love ourselves and each other with all our successes and with all our seeming failures, love ourselves and each other with all our faults and struggles and love ourselves and each other with all the baggage too. At times that is a tough road to travel. Sometimes it leaves us tired and hurting, sometimes it fills us with joy and peace.
If today is a struggle for me in any way, I’m going to just love that, and if today is a wonderful expression of joy and peace, I’m going to love that too.
”Blessings on your journey”
