In my great homeland of Australia, yesterday was RU OK day. A day where we check in on those we love to see how they are doing. A major focus of this initiative is suicide prevention. I took the time to check in with the greatest love of my life - life itself. I'm sure you won't be surprised by the response. Here's what life had to say...
'Collective reconciliation only takes place when we make the same space in honour of the humanity of others.True reconciliation does not require a debt to be paid. Unconditional love puts no such conditions on anything.That’s what makes it unconditional. Reconciliation requires this type of love, acceptance and forgiveness. It’s a feeling. Not a ledger in the physical experience.'
'We are not, as we have led ourselves to believe, and contemporary personal development and spirituality teachers have taught us, the centre of the universe or powerful beyond anything we could ever imagine.At least this is not individually the case.We are a small part of what is a very beautiful, though fractured and flawed humanity.It is our ability to love and to extend love to any being or situation that is powerful and unlimited.'
Our business and economics-first approach to life has spared nothing sacred. Included in the list of victims is childhood and the psychological health of our children. Both decimated. I don't care how impressive school websites are - when psychologists, counsellors and therapy dogs walk the halls of our schools, something is horribly wrong.
One thing is for certain as we move back into this world after the virus is done teaching us its lessons, we are going to need to tread softly.
If something is sacred, you treat it as such. Right now our children and our planet are not feeling so sacred!
If social media could speak it might say, ‘don’t blame me – it’s you who make me ugly with the way you violate and abuse me!’
Right now, our world is experiencing an intense focus on climate change. And while I understand this, what we should be focusing on is who we are.
Should we Really be Listening to Science – or God? Three phrases that have come my way recently have genuinely caught my attention.
Let me share a simple fact with the world. If the foundation for our lives, is our own lives, then our world will never be at peace. It will continue to suffer.But if the foundation for our lives is life in its entirety - the world and humanity and the earth - then it stands a chance.
So what does life actually need from us? Maybe it’s time we backed off the individual intensity and focused more on giving life its best year yet. After all, it’s the high income world that’s murdering life in the first place. So what can we do to give life the things it needs? Read on to better understand the impact our way of life has on life from life's perspective.
Judgement, boasfulness and our rampant use of energetic tools of manipulation, such as the law of attraction, have been murdering the life we belong to. And those responsible are often people who portray themselves as inspiring and those who believe themselves superior to others. We are all going to be seen for what we really were to life. Not what we thought we were to the world.
