Fighting & Attack doesn’t equal Healing

I’ve been thinking about this concept for some time now. It seems to be a part of human thought to attack or fight that which we don’t want or as a method to try and prove ourselves as right. We seem to use war mentality for so many things that we want to make better. But I have to pose the question. Do you see the intention and actions of fighting and attacking as a way to heal? Does a country in the middle of war feel that it is in the mist of healing? If you are in an attacking fight with a loved one (verbal or physical), do you feel you are healing what it is you’re fighting over?

When I think about these scenarios and so many others like them, the answer is always no. That which comes from fear can not heal. Fear which is the source of fighting and attack intentions and behaviors creates unrest, stress, guilt, and a false sense of power. It weakens us and doesn’t make us stronger.

Let Love Show the Way

So I have been further thinking about my last post (Love – A New Way ) and about how the emotion most humans seem to be directed by is fear. It shows its face by other names such as anger, hurt, anxiety, and sadness so most of us don’t even realize that it is fear that controls our lives and dictates so much of our behavior. Fear leads to reactionary actions vs. pro-active actions. I mentioned how it is deeply embedded in us, that it is our fabric. The thing is, this is still just a layer that sits on top of who we really are – love.

Fear has its place in our lives. It is there to physically help us save ourselves from real imminent danger. There are many scientists who study this and show that what humans have done is hold onto the fear that first ignites and we don’t let it go. It lingers, and then continuously gets triggered on low levels that keeps it going. It’s as if our bodies are confused and we no longer can separate real danger from paranoid behavior. So often when real fear kicks in we ignore it, dismissing it as only in our heads. Often times you’ll hear stories where people say things like, my gut was telling me I shouldn’t have gone down that street, but I did anyway, and ended up getting robbed. It’s important for us to understand that we need to start letting go of all the false fear so that when we really are in danger we can trust it.

Love – A New Way

I write with a heavy body…heavy limbs, heavy head, heavy heart. I feel the enourmous weight of the event that happened at the Boston Marathon. I feel the weight for those who lost their lives, those that were wounded, those that witnessed it, the family and friends of all those involved…I also feel the weight for those that attacked, their family and friends…and I feel the weight for humanity. It is heavy, my breathing is labored, I find myself blankly staring even as I type.

I am sad, so very sad.

Fearing Our Own Light

As I discover the light and immense love I truly am, I start to understand that it is the light in which we are, that we are most afraid. I believe the doctrines of the major world religions have aided us in fearing our greatest being. Somehow if we shine too brightly or feel too powerful we are not putting ourselves beneath the almighty enough. That somehow it’s seen as creating an idol out of ourselves. We have become afraid of our own light and goodness. So instead, we punish ourselves, over and over, with guilt shame, and beliefs of sin. We make ourselves small, unworthy, less than. We then project all of this, out into the world, onto everyone else with our judgments.

I truly believe God says no no no… be glorious, you are amazing, and beautiful, and powerful. Do not hide behind masks of humility, sin, and shame…shine brightly for you are my child.

reflection

2012 Reflections

I’m proud of me. Yup, I sure am. I’m proud of myself.

At the close of the year I like to reflect back upon it and how I lived. I don’t really set New Year’s resolutions or goals per se but I do set intentions. Things that I want to work on overtime. These items are usually ongoing and don’t have a finish date which is why I set them apart from being goals. However, they end up being the priority for that year.

At the beginning of 2012, my greatest intention was to work on my resistance. I wanted to first fully own it. Admit to myself that I can be resistant in many circumstances. Ironically, I resisted that I am resistant for a long time, ha! I then wanted to catch myself when I was being resistant so I could make a different choice. I decided to focus on the word curiosity. I was going to look at things with curiousity which would help me open up and be less resistant.  This was my intention and affirmation, “My curiosity leads me into alignment with my highest good.”
