The Cross Roads

DSCN0980
 
We are at a fork in the road of evolution. The way we think, react, believe and interact has all been conditioned into us and has led us down a dark path. We have forgotten our personal strength and ability to forge our own way.
 
We have relinquished the mighty adventure of a rustic life filled with scraped knees, bruised dreams and hopeful intentions. We have relinquished that satisfying feeling of falling into bed completely exhausted and content for the uneasy ability to slip into a soft, complacency.
 
We have chosen the mushy unfulfilling fate of conformity for far too long. It has led us to the brink of disaster in a morally corrupt world where we blatantly allow elected officials to desecrate humanity. Every time we use our energy to judge, attack or diminish, someone else, we are reinforcing the debauchery of the standards set for us in an archaic time.
 
We have evolved beyond the limitation of allowing insecure, unbalanced men from forging our future. We have indulged in our own petty whims of indifference and grudge matches that are like dull little droplets that converge into creating the path forward in an dismal future. We have chosen “fear” for far too long.
 
It is time for all of us to reassess the reactionary state in which we live. When is the last time we made a selfish choice? Was it really selfish or was it just unpopular to the status quo? How did we find ourselves sitting in a soft chair throwing disparaging intentions to others with no more ill intentions than our own? We are so angry at ourselves for being complacent but are so complacent that we don’t realize we are angry at all, let alone with ourselves,
 
So we throw nasty comments into the computer screen hoping they will stick somewhere. We hope to get a rise out of someone. Hope to get a reaction somewhere. Only for the hope to know that we still have the ability to make a difference by hurting someone who is at arms length; who we may never meet. It is so easy that way; isn’t it?
 
Yet we play right into the hands of those who wish to control us. We have chosen to play it small. We are mad at ourselves for our limited role and so we attack others we can not see in a home we cant know and use this to feel empowered. Instead, we need to merely, use our discipline and strength to forgo assaulting others from afar. This merely sets the precedent of what we do as a collective.
 
Every time you exercise a gracious act, withdraw from a justified attack, refrain from arguing or one-upping another, you are steering all of humanity clear of a disaster. You are at the helm. You, in your seemingly small insignificant life, are the blueprint for how humanity ventures forward. The more you choose honorably on all sides, the more you will see honor reflected in our collective world. That is the secret of life.
 
The secret of life has always been that it is not what happens to benefit you that matters. It is what you do and how you proceed to benefit others. The quality of life for all of humanity improves when the quality of your own thoughts and intentions improve. How often do you give thought to the well being of people on the other side of the planet?
 
We can build all the walls we want to but that doesn’t preclude us from breathing the same air as others, having our hearts beat in rhythm with them, and having the same hopes and dreams for our loved ones as they do. Could you love a dog that was rejected, abused or neglected on the other side of the world? Then why can we not love a person the same way? Why are we conditioned to feel so robbed when another person thrives. Why does it have to be “us vs them”? Is there not room for all to thrive?
 
It is time to uncover those little pockets of indifference and the conditioned responses that glaze us over. It is time for us to live, love, react and forge on with a one heart intention, Because like it or not, we are all in this together. The whole process of war brings us to a realization of commonality. We can come to that conclusion without the devastation. We don’t need the harsh lessons to awaken ourselves. All we need to do take better heed of our own intentions and send them out in the spirit of inclusiveness instead of division.
