We’ve got to resist sleepwalking through our lives at all costs. That is one of the fundamental challenges I believe we face. It’s easy to slip into predictability and focus on the little ups and downs that characterise human life.
We all take ourselves too seriously from time to time. We react to the little dramas in our lives as though they are major catastrophes. But when we open our eyes and hearts to the life that surrounds us, it’s never long before we see genuine suffering and hardship.
And that’s a big part of why we are here. We are here to cultivate and express compassion and kindness. It really doesn’t take much to imbue our lives with depth and to lift others out of the darkness. And in doing so, we transform ourselves from the inside out too.
We are always being told that we are One and that we live in a deeply interconnected world. But what does that actually mean? How can we make sense of it empirically?
As far as I’m concerned, there is only one way to explore and experience this as our personal reality. And that’s through our hearts and the power of love. Not some head nodding, dreamy eyed pseudo spiritual superficial agreeing and pontificating. It means helping, serving, living our lives as channels for God’s love to manifest in the here and now.
So many people are waiting – waiting for ascension, waiting for spiritual enlightenment, waiting for the sky to split open and for God and all the angels to swoop down and save the day or waiting for aliens to show themselves and somehow change everything.
But, this is all so PASSIVE, lazy and cowardly. And it’s never going to happen. We are here to do it for ourselves. We can ask for strength, guidance and wisdom, but ultimately if we want to create a better world, we’ve got to do it for ourselves, together and for each other. We’ve got to do it for love, nothing else. We’ve got to live our lives for love.
