That word can get ones attention.
I know, I have tried to commit suicide. I have thought about it even in the last year. Not to worry, my counselor and I are working on it.
I bring it up because it gets such a negative rap. I am not advocating for it, but why can’t we talk about it. In a way that says, I agree to disagree with you and not have to have such an uproar about it. A stigma.
Oh no, its a sin or its a slight against Gods creation. Or whatever. I have heard it all.
Many people think about it, more than we know. Just can’t speak up about it. I couldn’t before and now, I can. Think what you want about me. I am not the one with the issue. We all are.
We are going through a massive change on the planet. An awareness of change that needs to take place. Not to put another useless band aid on it, but deep, profound, permanent change. The environment is a mess, education has college kids in such debt that makes no sense what so ever. Politics is a joke. People focused on what the neighbor has instead of what they have right in front of them. Too much of the – keeping up with the Joneses and the Smiths crap. Our priorities are so out of whack with what is truly important. No wonder people think about suicide. Or is this world just doomed? I don’t believe so. Or I wouldn’t still be here.
I still believe in the beauty and potential that we have. We have reached this kind of precipice before. Whether you believe in Atlantis before or not, we are at a tipping point. This time, I believe we will get it right. We just have to keep on keeping on. Be the change you wish to see in the world. If each person took time, and you do have it, to change themselves, the world will change for the better, faster than we could possibly imagine. God, Source, Universal Intelligence or whatever you call it, made us in the likeness and image. Which means that no matter the destruction we have wrought to the planet, each other, we have it within us to heal it all. We are capable of the miracles of Jesus, of the divine. It isn’t somewhere else. It is within us.
I am still working on it and that may never end, but the journey and the planet, is worth it.
What say YOU? Same old same old, or are you so done with the way things are that you find the indominable will to forge a new world of true peace and prosperity for all. It takes such courage, beyond faith – a knowing to see it through. We are not alone. Ask God or whatever you believe in for help. Get help. You will find the people or support groups or whatever teacher or mentor you need on your path. First, it starts with you and the unconditional love you need to let in. Take down the walls you built up around your heart and let the love in. Love is patient and kind. Never goes away. We just forget where to look. We are it. Meditate on that.
Love to all,
