Ever thought that life was one struggle after another and therefore living that way not so worth it?
Ever wonder why 'others' seem high on life or buoyant?
Beliefs and intentions hold strong power over us if we are unaware of them. The strongest intention will win even when consciously we were intending something else. Unexamined beliefs and contradicting intentions stunt growth.
Growth and learning can be filled with some pains, but, it does not have to be excruciating pain nor suffering.
This post is about transforming with greater awareness of intentions, without suffering and with reverence for Life.
Greater awareness is possible through inquiry.
I invite you to still yourself.
Not sure how?
Feel your legs and feet touching the ground. Support is right where you are. Focus on your heart area or draw your focus to the area in your body that is achy, sore, tingling or calling your attention.
What is alive in me?
Many times I thought I would be better off if I were not alive. If you read my last post, you know I had a death wish by the age of 12.
What am I feeling?
Feelings change. All I ask is, what is/are my current feelings.
Breathe, deep exhale. Close your eyes. Listen and be patient. No need to rush. In a rush we leave our soul behind. All there is, is this moment and the next one will be there regardless.
There are thoughts, sensations and sounds as well....
What is it that I need? Not what think I want.
I want my life to be filled with ease, harmonious, to be meaningful, joyful,...
What is 'reality presenting me with' at this time?
Another day to live as fully as possible. Opportunities...
If I neglect what reality is presenting, can I live with that?
Sure, but I won't grow. Maybe I'll complain and regret not taking action on what was offered.
What do I need to take action?
Action comes thanks to clarity.
If, I am confused or ambivalent -what do I need to have clarity?
These questions help me to dig deeper and if I am patient, they allow me to see what has been hidden and to transform myself with greater ease.
Choosing to stop living is a sad way of attempting to meet our needs.
Choosing suicide is a lack of reverence for life.
Not recognizing the value of Life, is to walk around like a zombie.
A life that is not valued is a life that is at risk for illness, tragedy, and ultimately of death.
How can I and you attract prosperity and well-being if we do not value life?
We may, but not for long.
Lack of reverence means we do not value life and so it does not make it hard to take life.
Neither homicide or suicide honor life.
If we want peace on earth, it seems we each can start by honoring our own lives.
Our death wish can be set in motion and if we are fortunate, we will realize it was never what we wanted.
Being alive makes me human.
Having reverence for Life makes me a human being.
Humanity needs us to have reverence for Life. With deep gratitude for our existence, we can co-create a loving world and we can grow and transform with kindness.
What is your intention as a person on this planet?
Do you treasure this life or is there a part of you that fears living?
What do you believe is possible in your life and for humanity?
Can you see the beauty of our humanity where others see none?
